Re: Nightforce Zero Stop

Who has a picture of how NF does their zero stop?

Dave,
Have you got a pic of the way you do yours?

I can only think of many ways to accomplish it, but before doing one myself I'd like to see what's been done already.

Brent

I think somewhere in my archives I have a diagram that came with my Zero Stop that shows quite well how it works.

The chances of me finding it before you and I go into a nursing home are not too good, though. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Nightforce Zero Stop

Guys,
You simply drill and tap a vertical hole near the edge of the turret cap, the allen screw is adjusted so the turret only goes so far back down. Click it up as far as you want, turn it back down when it stops it should be at the zero point where you started. Its so simple it sounds difficult.

I dont have a pic to show but i will send a drawing to Brent and he can post it.

Re: Nightforce Zero Stop

depending on how much material you have to drill into, i used #6 for the Nightforce. Make sure the screw will bottom out on a fixed area of the scope.
