    You might need 2 tools to complete the task at hand.
    I use the torpedo7 one for my action screws and you will need one similar as above to do rings/ring mount screws.

    3 - 15 Nm (~26.5 to 132 LbF in) is much too high for firearms use.

    The Wheeler 10 – 60 LbF in (~1.12 – 7.0 Nm) is much more appropriate. Likewise the Vortex is good - nice looking unit @Double Shot
    Above 25 Lbf in on a wooden stock without pillars there is a risk of crushing.

    Even on my F Class stocks which are alloy I only tighten them to 6.0 to 7.0 Nm (lubricated) which is actually tight as. And these are larger screws than in most sporting rifles.

    Rings caps only need 15 LbF in – well below the capability of the 3-15 wrench.
    Cross screws, depending upon the rings type ~ 20 Lbf in.

    @zimmer What happens when your actions screws require 8nm or 9nm of torque mate? (as does one of my rifles)

    "3 - 15 Nm (~26.5 to 132 LbF in) is much too high for firearms use" Is far too boarder stroke, as above you will generally require 2 tools for the job.

    Go for it mate. Most (virtually all?) though will not require that amount of torque. What size bolts/screws are used and what torque is applied is easily checked against charts. Also with my full alloy stocks the screws tighten real quick ie no compression in the stock and there is a risk of taking the screw beyond their metal elastic limit. I have also experimented with my F Class stocks and found optimum torques for accuracy, and it was not the highest torque that I could have applied. I have also done the same with my wooden un-pillared and laminated stocks.
