What should I torque my screws to?Updated 2 years ago

For any 1/2 inch nuts on Mount and Ring Bases, we suggest between 20 to a maximum of 30 inch pounds.

For any screws affixing the tops of your ring or mount covers to secure your optics, we suggest between 10 to a maximum of 18 inch pounds, with 15 being a great middle ground.

For any Duty, or Defense of Life Applications, a small drop of Blue thread locker is suggested in conjunction with the above torque specs.
