    I have one at home. I'll take a photo tonight and post it. Not cheap, but handy.

    You could create your own will a small ratchet and a spring gauge. kind of crude, but good enough.

    Most bike shops should be able to sell you a bbb branded torque wrench and bits for around $85-100, a big step up on the wheeler ones I have seem

    Pedal variety, add about $100 from my initial searches.

    Other option is to look at places like Sulco etc, but not cheap.

    Push bike, we sold a lot of them to folks who were (justifiably) worried about getting there expensive carbon parts done up right.

    Check out chainreaction, its a UK website for bike parts. You could probably ship it here and still pay under half what you would locally.

    This looks like it would do most shooters needs,it's a commonly rebranded unit that while not up to everyday use should be fine for occasional use.
    They normally ship to NZ in four days

    Using that compared to the fat wrench is a pia . Have both. Buy the right tool once I reckon which also has more fittings then you ll ever need.
    Workshop innovations have them advertised from $90 to $120.00. If you are going to play with scopes it's well worth it.
    $47.00 bucks xtra well spent IMO. Specially when it's all there and in one box without having to go shop for adapters and bits

    Teng tools does a really good one with bits, suitable for industrial use. Saves you having to convert to yankee in.lbs. from metric or whatever Chinese measurement of the day you get on the cheapies...

    Is tight not tight enough?
    Personally I have never used torque wrenches on any of my rifle's and haven't had issues with loose fitting, ring marks or inaccuracies.

    Guess if I had the tooling on hand I would use it though.
