Greetings,

Appears that Borka is MADE IN THE USA.

This would be my choice.

Cheers,

It's also 4x the cost and not being made now due to his wife's health. For a tool that is used a few times a year I'm not sure its worth a $200 investment for most people.

You are aware the harbor freight 1/4 inch-inch/lbs torque wrench is $12 or less when it's on sale half the time.

HF wrench - good enough for most gun related tasks?

Utilizing a heavy duty cam and pawl mechanism, this reversible 1/4 in. drive click type torque wrench is the go-to tool when precise torque is needed. The click type wrench design provides a torque range from 20-200 in. lbs..

If I had posted that I was seeking a David Sams or John Eulette .45 would everyone be sending me helpful links to Rock Island Armory?
Just wondering.

I don't think Harbor Freight, or any other 1/4" Torque Wrenches can be compared to what OP is looking for.  If you need to work on your car's engine - yes.  For gunsmithing purposes, - I would hesitate using it except maybe on AR.  Wheeler's Fat Wrench is low end alternative for Borka's tools.  And if you want go really crazy, - go with Mountz.  After you see prices for Mountz tools, Borka's would be considered a budget brand.  There is something about using good tools (like driving something other than little commuter cars).  Even though not everything "Borka" is made in USA (some of the components, like bits, and some others are sourced from Taiwan and elsewhere), these are high quality tools and well worth asking price, IMO.

You are also asking about a highly specific gunsmithing tool and to be perfectly honest most bullseye shooters I know shoot better than they do fixing their guns. Wera, Felo, CDI or Wiha likely make a relatively high quality substitute if you need some thing now, or wait for what you want to become available.

Having some personal experience with HF torque wrenches, we tested some of them several times and they were suprisingly accurate for a period of about a year of fairly constant usage then buy another one for $10

Greetings,

I think Jimmy G. brought forth a good point.

Testing the tool against a standard.

I have several torque wrenches and no way to validate their accuracy within my Kave.

I recall visiting the local Vocational School for Auto Mechanics and they had a machine mounted on the wall for the students to test their torque wrenches.

Hmmm, perhaps another project to embrace for the future...

Cheers,

Dave

Torque testers are not cheap, but worth every cent in a precision maintenance program. Even a Proto-brand is $1200+ from McMaster-carr or MSC

Mountz offers Calibration Service and Calibration Certification with pretty much all their products in 6/12/18 months intervals.

Pretty much all professional level tool manufacturers will perform calibration on their products, typically easier to attain if you are in a field that demands it. Torque tools are a bit of a deep rabbit hole, and in many cases you need consistency rather that hitting a number bang on.
