Default Looking to buy a Weaver torque screwdriver

I'm thinking about buying a Weaver torque wrench/screwdriver. I feel the need to start torquing things the way they are suppose to be. I'd like to get my scope rings torqued properly and start fiddling with the torque settings on the reciever screws. I can see myself getting plenty of use out of it, if it's worth having. Does anyone have the Weaver torque screwdriver/wrench? What do you think of it?

I'm hoping to hear good things about it. I like the 0-80 in/lb range on it......the price ain't too bad either.

Any torque limiting device is a must for the tool box.

I do not have the Weaver. Here is a link to Brownells for others:

this is the one i have, it works well enough

an inch pound adjustable torque driver is a MUST have if you do anything to firearms. just getting the reciever screws torqued evenly is a must

I have the Wheeler also and it works real good easy to adjust and use.
