Nightforce Zero Stop

My source for this is(was) dubious at best.
Some time ago I read on a thread somewhere that a friend of a friend had obtain a set of Zero stop turretst from Nightforce esssentially by calling up and bugging them.

Is there any way to get a hold of this system and, is it the ducks guts it's made out to be?
Will it just be a matter of time before they release it?

Thanks.

Re: Nightforce Zero Stop

Its real simple to just make your own stops. You drill and tap a hole in the turret knob, put in a set screw and thats the Zero stop. I have done several for customers.

BD, I can't picture that. Are you saying that the knob is then locked down by the allen screw and you must unscrew the allen screw in order to again loosen the knob and change the clicks?

Re: Nightforce Zero Stop

Len,
They are releasing scopes with zero stops, I know a few guys who have them now. I just took a razor edge and made a small scratch under the bottom of the elevation turret at the 100 yard zero. Made the mark at 7 o'clock if you were looking at the scope from shooting position. Easy to spot and I just crank down to the tick mark and line up the zeros.

What Black Diamond is describing is no doubt a better fix, and would probably not cost 165 bucks like the factory zero stop mod.

I had one of mine adapted by NF last year. Glad I did.

Re: Nightforce Zero Stop

called nightforce and they said you could zero your dials after sighting in. Is there a difference with what you guys are talking about?

Re: Nightforce Zero Stop

Zero stop is just that. It STOPS the knob at your set zero. You can crank the knob at night or even under water back to this stop and the knob will travel no further.
A tactical spoofoo mantra. I'd like to look in one myself.
