I would think a DC drill would give you the torque you want.

I have/use a 24v Ridgid which I like for heavy duty drilling.

spec says 615 in.lb for torque (I would think you wouldn't need more 
than 480 in.lbs or so ???

But then looking at AC drills, the Hitachi D13VG 1/2" is 0-600 RPM 9 Amp
and specifies 651 in-lbs, which is pretty good compared to DC.


You can get the Hitachi for $150

Some Amazon reviews that seem to validate it's torque
The reviews all seem good. Make sure D13VG though, there are other 
similar models.
