    I have a nice 8.5x25x50 VXIII LR 30mm tube and covered target knobs. It is listed for sale. But maybe I will just change the turret knobs and use it. Can Mark 4 knobs be installed? Or where can I buy some external knobs for it.

    Also if you have experience with the tracking of this scope and how it returns to zero I would like input.

    Thanks!!

    I'm pretty sure mark 4 knobs can be installed. Are you familiar with the stoney point knobs? I have one on a 2-7 leupold and it seems to work well.

    I think the knobs on the mark4 are just M1 knobs. I had Leupold install M1's on my VXIII LR and they work great.

    Yes I have seen the stoney points, I was hoping for something larger and easier to read though.


    Can I install the M-1 turrets, and if so where can I buy them?

    Thanks for all the info guys, I just hope this thing tracks well if I spend the coin on knobs.

    Send your scope to leupold custom shop. $130. They had mine back to me on the east coast in 9 days from the day I shipped.
