Thanks for the above. My digital torque wrench is a half inch drive and probably impractical for driving a #8 machine screw.

I've always used the typical allen wrench to mount scopes. I tighten them to hand tightness to where the 'L' shaped "wrench" flexes a little bit. Tight enough to where it's uncomfortable to go beyond that point.

I've not had any problems, and I never used a thread locker. Back in the day, I've used fingernail polish, but I don't remember how that turned out.

So, I'll use the blue. I know I don't want to use red as I might swap out the system at some point.

thanks again
