    Torque wrench recommendations ?

    Hi, so I'm looking forward to installing my rail system on to my Scar soon but I need to get a torque wrench first. Can anyone suggest a decent one that's in the $80 range or below?

    I use the Fat Wrench from Wheeler. It's like $40 or so

    If you want a quality versatile torque wrench that you can use for your SCAR and lots more, I recommend the CDI Torque 1501MRPH - it's a 1/4-Inch Drive Adjustable Micrometer Torque Wrench, Torque Range 20 to 150-Inch. this is the high quality and highly regarded Snap On brand, just under the original manufacturer's name.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...rformifycom-20

    ~$100 from Amazon. Free shipping if you're Prime.

    A Torque Wrench is not something you want to skimp on. If it is important enough that it needs to be torqued to an accurate measurement, you need a tool that will (1) give you an accurate measurement so you're not over/under torquing due to calibration or quality (2) work properly every time so that you don't over-torque (needs a clean, easy to use break).

    Buy it quality, buy it once...

    Boris's 62" or 65" pound precision torque limiter or multi torque drivers are perfect for servicing the SCAR platforms. I just installed two Branham rails this week using Borka tools - they are/we're perfect.

    I use a TEKTON 24320 (http://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00C5ZL2EG). The published accuracy is +/- 4%, which I think is close enough for torque measurements.

    Bolt torque specs aren't exactly precise anyway. The people coming up with them are usually estimating the coefficient of friction.
