    That would depend on the manufacturer and what the recommend for the specific set up you have.

    Hello. I have one of the grey plastic Warne T-15 tools that is pre-set to torque. It is marked on it as 25 In-Lb. Which an internet conversion app converts as 2.82 Nm. The end on my torque device is the same as now used on Leupold and other "torx" shape screws.

    Optics Warehouse have them but mine came, I think, from Norman Clarke. Warme does caution against their use on aluminium receivers as "they may strip". Hope it helps.

    Here's the info supplied with my Weaver Gunsmith torque wrench, which is intended to be a guide in the absence of specific manufacturer guidelines.

    25 inch lbs is the correct information for Warne mounts..

    Cheers Guys

    I use one set of Warne and the rest are blaser mounts.

    so hopefully I'll get the torgue setting for the blaser mounts and I'll be set

    thanks for your all of the input greatly appreciated

    cheers

    According to blaser 10-15 ft lbs is the norm on 30 mm QD mounts, I'll convert that to NM and see how it goes

    I'd check that they don't mean in-lbs rather than ft-lbs.

    Tier one rings are 1.8 nm for the top screws I guess that's pretty much standard

    My Tier One mounts specify 2nm for top screws 6nm for base.
