Homemade Zerostops

I just got done reading the Huskemaw thread of TikkaMike's (holy cow). Anyway, it was brought up that Huskemaw has a zerostop. So I got to thinkin', Has anyone made their own zerostop? Let's see them. I have access to some pretty good equiptment so I bet I could whip me some up.

Re: Homemade Zerostops

Unlike you, I have access to some pretty crappy equipment. My attempt at a zero stop was quite unsuccessful.

Maybe I need to actually see a Zero Stop and how it works.

I was thinking that maybe some kind of ring that fits on the turret post below the turret. Maybe something two-piece like a locking collar.

Re: Homemade Zerostops

I have gunsmith made zero stops on my leupolds. I will take some pictures if you like they are a ring that goes under the knob and has tiny allen set screws. they are very inexpensive.

Re: Homemade Zerostops

I also thought about putting a piece of white tape below the turret and wind the turret down to the tape. Maybe?
