Re: New Leupold Finger Knobs

Yeah, they're OK for screwing around at the range for a little while, but that's it. I wouldn't rely upon them in a hunting situation.

I tried, but was told the M2 turrets (short like you want) can't be retrofitted any time soon. M3's probably never. I just recently heard that Leupold won't install the M1's in a non-tactical (but Premier used to on any 30mm) which (if the M1 thing is legit) leaves you with their tall skinny target turrets.

I did find a solution, however. I bought an IOR. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: New Leupold Finger Knobs

I talked to a guy at the Leupold custom shop; he said that if you pop the knob off, it will have to be replaced. He said that underneath, it looks like the old coin the knob is the male part.

I told him of my concerns, and he was very attentive. He said that they have had numerous complaints about this, and that they have the means to rectify it (a short target turret), but that they have conflicting priorities. He said that feedback like this helps get priorities set.

So, if you guys would like to see a short target turret for the 1" tube VX3 scopes, please contact the custom shop at 503-526-1400 and give them your 2 cents.

I will still persue an aftermarket alternative in the meantime.

Thank you, Doug
