Anyone use this to Torque MPX Barrels? Login/Join

I finally read the SIG manual for my MPX and discovered I'm supposed to torque the barrel retaining screws to 40 in-lbs.

Googling I found this bike tool graduated in NM increments of 4, 5 and 6 NM (35.4, 44.25 and 53.1 in-lb respectively).

Would 44 be too much torque?

All thoughts appreciated.

I'd just go with a Wheeler torque wrench. The analogue wrench is slightly cheaper than the digital one.

Wheeler or Borka torque wrenches.

Any self respecting shooter needs one.

Thanks - now, if I get one, will that cure my total lack of self-respect - or at least move the needle?

Lol, just giving you grief. I find I use my Borka setup a lot now that I have it. The bits are great and when you start mounting scopes, SCAR / MPX barrels, etc it is just great to know you are doing it right instead of winging it.

A "bike tool" for your MPX?

I wouldn't use that on a bicycle, let alone a firearm or anything else calling for an actual torque value.

I use calibrated torque wrenches when applying torque, and I get them calibrated annually. Most of mine are snap-on or mac.

It would cost more to get that amazon plastic junk tested for calibration, than what the wrench costs...no early way I'd consider it. Ever.
