A riflescope is a precision instrument with set specifications and your scope rings are no exception.
The Nightforce Torque Wrench is pre-set to 68 inch pounds of torque and will allow you to attach your
rings to your base to the correct torque specification – every time. This tool ensures zero slippage of
the rings with the base, and also prevents breakage or stripping caused by excess torque. The compact
design makes it very convenient to keep in your range bag and is equally at home on your work bench.
(½ socket not included).
