Zero Stop question(s)

How does this work on the NF's? Is there something that sits below the moving turret that prevents it from going lower? Can I make one? Has anyone made one? Is there an aftermarket product for Nikons, Leupolds and Bushnells? JohnnyK.

Re: Zero Stop question(s)

Assuming you are talking about this. After zeroing my gun at 200yrds I made a ring out of aluminum with a lite press fit to fill the gap. I can still go about 5moa down. This is on my Sightron SIII 6-24x50.

I to have thought about a zero stop for my NF. I was thinking about a set screw on the top of the turret.

Machining a spacer under the turret works good. Will not get you as accurate a zero stop as Nightforce, but will get you on the same turn of the turret as where you are sighted in at.

Re: Zero Stop question(s)

Tried that with my NF, but then realized you cannot turn the dust cap down on its threads (not enough clearance on the turret barrel). Went in a different direction. I got some "White Out" typewriter correction fluid and used a very fine pointed brush to mark the lower setting on the elevation scale at 200 yds (my normal beginning point). The White Out can be removed easily with water, and if it gets too thin, you can touch it up easy.
