  • Vortex torque wrench

    I'm thinking about buying the vortex torque wrench to throw into my rifle case for reassembling my rifle when I get to my location. Any feedback on these? I assume since it's vortex it will be quality. Thank you!

    Vortex does not make torque wrenches. In fact, no scope makers in the U.S. make their own torque tools. If they offer torque tools, these are the tools from Asia, branded as requested by the scope makers. If these tools come from Taiwan, it's a bit better than from China. I suggest you call Vortex and ask about their source for this adjustable torque screwdriver.

      Pretty sure it is this model re branded for Vortex by Capri. The specs look decent. Made in Taiwan

        Capri Tools is mostly a reseller, so Capri has it made for them by somebody else.

        Exactly the same torque screwdriver is actually made by Torque Tech from Taiwan:

        http://www.tw-tech.com.tw/products-d...ue_Screwdriver

        specifically, TT item # TW-262-23

        There are also a bunch of copies of the same design, it's common occurrence in Asia. Just matching by the price level, it feels like Capri Tools thing may be made for them by Torque Tech in Taiwan, while Vortex branded tool is likely a China copy, unless Vortex managed to make a miracle deal with Torque Tech. Torque Tech original is quite expensive, $70+ per piece FOB Taiwan on pretty sizable MOQ. I think that a call to Vortex to inquire about source of their tool may clarify a lot of things. If Vortex tool is from China, it does not mean it's all bad. Just another alteration of the Wheeler FAT with more user friendly adjustment scale...

              I haven't had a chance to actually use it yet, it looks like a pretty quality tool. It comes with a signed calibration sheet as well. The tool is made in Taiwan, it feels very solid and has a nice appearance.
