M16 Army Torque Values

a. This appendix includes a standard torque table of the most commonly torque screws, bolts, and nuts.

b. These torque values may be used when torque values are not specified.

c. The torque table values are given in inch-pounds. If a torque wrench is calibrated in foot-pounds, you need to divide the listed number by 12 to obtain the desired torque.
