Should I buy one? Kidd recommends 10lb and ruger 28lb?

No, just use a 4" crescent wrench and tighten the nut on the "V" block.

I don't know if you need one for a Ruger barrel swap but a torque wrench is a very handy tool for home gunsmithing. I've fixed a lot of problems just by properly torqueing fastners.

Might as well as you dropped the coin for a kidd barrel. You can use it to properly tighten scope rings, stocks, etc. too. Remember those are INCH Pounds not ft.lbs! No need to demonstrate how soft aluminum receivers can be.

Well I didn't go that crazy haha just a green mountain barrel. But is there any certain method? Like use the Allen wrench vertical and use the small end so I don't get to much leverage?

I did not use a torque wrench when I put my green mountain bull barrel on. I took second place in a 100 yard bench rest competition with mine against 13 centerfire rifles. The other participants were pretty upset that I took second place with a 10/22. I also have a Kidd 2-stage trigger on mine.

Harbor Freight has cheap torque wrenches that are more than enough for what you need. For gun work you need one for Ft/Lbs and one for In/Lbs
