    I always orient my torque wrench 90 degrees to the barrel nut tool. I havenít had a barrel come loose yet.

    Most companies that understand assembly and torque will spec the torque for the wrench being at 90 degrees to the installation tool.

    So recommended torque wrenches are the ones with the dial, not the click ones, right? As you can see, I'm very mechanically inclined.

    I have a cobalt so-so torque wrench. But after building a few guns, you don't need the torque wrench unless you were beaten for coloring outside the lines.

    Like Iraqgunz used to say... my torque wrench is my arm. (now if I'm working on a more fragile job (non 7000 series upper, and/or non steel barrel nut, i'll get the torque wrench out so I don't gall threads. For real guns, I don't bother.

    Either type will do, but I use the click type.

    It's such a wide torque range, it isn't really critical except at the very bottom.

    Normal industry wide SOP is set the torque extender to 90 degrees to avoid the math, or calculate the correction. It's what I've advocated in the past for installing the barrel nut.

    However, I've since learned the manual specifies the proper torque is with the correct barrel nut wrench set inline with the torque wrench and the added length is already figured into the torque range. If you have references to the contrary, please share. I don't want to be passing along incorrect data.

    I think you are passing along incorrect data but for the application we are talking about it probably makes zero difference. Sorta like throwing the deck chairs off of the Titanic slow the ships sink rate.

    As usual, YOU are incorrect.
