Thought I'd post this here if anybody has a necessity to want to make a target turret out of an old el cheapo scope (I have a lot of them)--

Copied from Predator Masters--

Anyone ever want to make a target turret out of a FA turret system? I have used this several times now and it works great. Just have to get a small vial cap somewhere (I have a bunch of them from my lab if somebody wants some let me know), and replace the FA plastic tab with the cap. Just have to pull the 2 Frearson screws with a Frearson screw driver. It aint pretty but it works great--
