    I don't think there is a torque setting DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN !! (any aluminum alloy ring, or anything for that matter, will strip or distort if over torqued It is very very common for people to over tighten rings and bases tighten each a little bit at a time so they clamp down evenly an allen wrench tightened CAREFULLY and pressured from the end of the long side until it flexes slightly is very close to perfect for each screw after getting them EVENLY snug

    From the optilok guide on euro optiks;


    Optilock scope ring cap screws should be torqued to 15-17 in/lbs, the Optilock base to scope ring

    stud screw and the base to dovetail clamp screw should be torqued to 45 in/lbs.
