    IIRC, the M1 style cannot be covered with a cap. In other words the M1s are exposed. The target type has caps to cover them up. Also the M1 has heavier set screws. My turrets are pretty stiff to turn, so if they are all that way I don't think there's much chance of turning them by accident in the field. There are many others here much more knowledgeable than myself and I'm sure will chime in.

    I just had the M1 put on my VXIII LR and love it. It does not seem that there would be any problem with not having a cap for it. The numbers are right there in front of you even when your face in on the stock. I highly recomend the M1 over the target turret.

    I had the M1 installed and love them. I've left caps behind before.

    I have the target style on all of my scopes and love it. I have never had the m1 style before so I cannot compair the two but would say that the target style is not a bad choice. I like the covers on mine, not for out in the field but mainly for in the case or during transportation and that sort of thing.
