Looking for a torque wrench for scope mounting, etc to get a much more accurate reading on how tight I'm setting screws than, "I think that's good".
NEIKO 10574A 1/4” Drive Torque Wrench Screwdriver Set | 30 Pieces. On Amazon seems ok for $45.
Thoughts?

I have one of these, and it has worked fine for scope mounting:

I have a Snap-On in/lbs and a Aircraft screwdriver type but can't remember the name as well as a Fat Wrench. All work well but my Fat Wrench is a little harder to read exactly what it is set at.

I’ve used a Fat Wrench for a number of years. Works fine.

I have the cheaper version of this set. Up to 65 inch pounds. It's simple but seems to work well.

Most people cannot calculate what torque to use.

I have that set too. It appears to be exactly the same as my Vortex set. Both are legions better than a fat wrench.
I have a dial gauge one for low torque (<20 inch/lbs) i have a Proto for the stock screws and such.
The Capri or Vortex will do 95% of what you ever need on guns
