For all my years (many), I have just used a screwdriver or allen screw or tork tool to tighten the screws for mounting bases and scopes. I now see torque wrenches advertised, like for Mk 4 Leupy's, and wonder how significant are they?


Has anyone had real problems by not using a torque wrench? I am curious what real benefit might come from one of those puppies? 


And, for those who use them and think they are necessary, where to you find a "good" one? and what's a reasonable price for a "good" one?  I looked here on SWFA and didn't find them.

Warne Torque Wrench:( model number T-15)

The fixed T-15 driver is the most common fastener used with scope mounts and takes the guesswork out of how tight to torque the base and ring screws. Wrench doesn't tighten above 25 in.-lbs. and won't torque past preset specification

I bought one for just under 20 bucks and it's foolproof.Just put Warne Torque Wrench in your search engine, and your set ( not sure of the rules about naming the store I got it at ).Warnes website ( warnescopemounts) has info on it.
