I have a Leupold CQ/T scope mounted on my M4-gery. The gun is kind of heavy and I have been tempted to take the scope off. It is a carry handle mount. My question is, will the scope be off by much if I take it off and reattach it?

Thanks for any help.

So are you saying that as long as I keep the set screw at the same torque (around 65 ft/lbs), that it will stay close?

I think it's 65in/lbs? I'd hate see a guy twist stuff apart.

That seems to make more sense. I use 80 ft/lbs on my lug nuts.


Anyone know where I can get an inexpensive torque wrench that would fit inside the carry handle?

There is a great little tool I keep in my range bag so I can remove my NXS off my AR. it is available from NightForce, Leupold or a good small tool supply co. . It is a metal t-handle wrench with a 1/4" square drive on the end. It will tighten to 65 in/lbs, then will free-wheel. You also can use it to remove your rings, since it locks-up when turn in the counter-clockwise direction.

That is a nice looking tool. I don't think it would work for my scope though. The Leupold nut is on the underside of the carry handle.

INCH/POUNDS, or else you will twist the damn thing off!
