Mounting most scopes require a torque spec on the screws that mount it. Too much torque and the scope tube is distorted or crushed, too little and the scope won't be stable.  Does anyone have a good source for a torque screwdriver (20 inch pounds or so)?

I just got mine yesterday.  Great device.  Get the sniper kit... it's worth it.
