Re: Homemade Zerostops

LR,

Your having a whole conversation on this thread all by yourself it looks like haha. I can see the creative wheels turning in your head... I wish I had some cool tools/know how to make stuff... I will get a picture and post it for you.

    I had a couple of turrets made by Kenton for Leupold scopes and they had a set screw on top of the turret that you tightened down when set at 6-8 clicks below your 100 yard zero. They were prone to vibrate loose untill I painted them with nail polish but it was simple and they work quite well. The screw bottoms out on the top of the turret when turned all the way down and does not interfer with anything when the turret is turned up. would work on any knob that has enough room on top end to drill and tap a hole.

    Good idea, I just made a zero stop for my mark 4, I got lucky and found a washer that was just right after I pounded it and redrilled center for post. Guestion, my vari 3 does'nt seem to climb the post as you dial up? How would you zero stop that set up?

    Ok, that looks like a better idea than what I was thinking of. I was going to make some kind of ring that sat below the turret. I think I have to take the turrets off my Nightforces and see what I can do.
