Leupold VX-3L turret options?

Guys, I run a Weatherby Accumark 338-378, with a Leupold VX-3L 4.5-14x50mm scope, and I would like to know if I am able to purchase and install turrets for this scope? If so, where can I get them? Thanks for the help.

Is there anywhere I can purchase the proper turret and install it myself? It isn't easy for me to ship optics from Canada to the US.

Leupold will also do this for about $125 (at least that's the amount they quoted at the SHOT show).

You might find it easier with Customs to send it back to them as a "repair" (heh heh) than to send it to another business.

I would check into sending it back to leupold as a repair
and have them do it they did my turrets and I love them
stoney point used to make a screw on turret for some models but you had to have the coin slot I believe keton industries sells a similar deal

No coin slot on my scopes. I sent Leupold an email regarding my questions. I might just go that route, if I can get around customs.

Re: Leupold VX-3L turret options?

my next suggeston would be to consider what you plan on using this gun for.
the m1 turrets will give you muliple revolutions of the dial and but also a bigger scope profile. the cds dial will give you a smaller profile but only one turn of the dial.
But if you can get what you want with one turn that may be a good way to go.when you figure how far you are going to shoot this gun add a couple hundred yards
