got my badger ordnance scope mount. how do i know how tight it is? comes with an allen wrench. it's going on a rem 700 police. no scope yet though.
what about loc-tite?
find the local Snap-On tool man. ask him to borrow a inch lbs. torque wrench and a hex bit of the correct size. 2 minutes, done
Yeah, you need to borrow a little torque wrench.
The Badger Ordnance base attaches to the rifle with blue Loc-Tite at 15-18 inch-pounds.
The Badger Ordnance rings are attached to the base at 65 inch-pounds, no Loc-Tite.
The ring caps are torqued at 15-18 inch-pounds, no Loc-Tite.
Finding the local Snap-on guy might be a hassle, but well worth it.
In a pinch, Sears carries torque wrenches.
Get out your credit card and take it for a spin!
Just make sure you don't use ft-lbs! Someone here on the site torqued their rings down with 65 ft-lbs! Woops!
