after market turrets

I have a 6-18x40 Nikon buckmaster that came with the extra "target " turrets. I have grown to really like them for dialing in elavation and windage. I also have a 4x12x50 Buckmaster that does NOT have the target turrets. I contacted Nikon and they said they do not manufacture optional turrets for that scope.

any suggestions on where I can get a set of aftermarket target turrets to fit a Nikon Buckmaster 4x12x50 ??

Thanx in Advance

Dan

    I'm looking for an after market place that laser etches leupold M1 turret caps. I have been waiting for mine from leupold for two months. Good news - I got my M1 Turret dial March 12. I all but gave hope with Leupold .

    I picked up a set of target turrets at Cabelas for a Leupold, don`t know if they had them for anything else or not.

    Were they generic that go on the screw slot, or were they Leupold M1 yardage marked for a specific caliber and range?

    I can't say I'm real happy with Leupold. I sent my VX3 in to change elevation turret to M1 and install TMR reticle. The turn around time on they scope was very good. However, I only got a standard MOA dial and I paid for an elevation dial yardage marked to 1 K. I've contacted them by letter, email, and called them three times- " yes , we'll get that out to you." Its been a month and half since I got my scope back. No dial. Good news , I got my dial March 12. I all but gave up on Leupold.
