Leupold M1 knobs

I'm interested in the Leupold M1 knobs and I'm hoping someone might have some experience with them. How are they different from the target knobs? It is my assumption that they are similiar, but the target knobs have covers - yes? Do the M1 knobs have a positive 'click' to their adjustment? Any other comments?

I'm not gonna shoot here. I'm gonna shoot waaaaaaaay over there!

Re: Leupold M1 knobs

M1 knobs are the same (basically) as the ones on the MK4's. Yes they have positive clicks.

The M1 are much easier to see than the target knobs.

one down side is they do get moved. Last year while pulling my gun out of the gun case on the 4 wheeler All I hear is ZIPPPPP! it was the sound of my m1 knob spinning as I pulled it out. Luckily it only spun half way around and it was the windage knob. I re zeroed and away I went!

All I know is that my M1 turrets on my mk4 10x takes a freakin hurricane and two men to turn.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
