    thanks
    The zero lock turret is different from the standard turret.
    I think you can get a custom turret made for the standard turret but for an upgrade to zero lock it'd have to go back to Leupould.

    Leupold has a place in Australia that does their custom work, prices are pretty reasonable. From memory it'd cost $150-200 for the ZL2 upgrade, can also change reticles but price varies depending on what you want.

    @Beetroot do you know if they can put a ZL2 windage turret on a VX-5HD?

    Not all the VX5HD 2-10x42 have the ZL2 two turn elevation turret. The windage turret is capped. Probably possible to have a ZL2 windage turret retro fitted to the scope.

    Edit: sorry must have didn’t read your previous message properly @308mate. I’m sure they can probably retrofit a Zl2 windage turret. Cheers

    Yes they can.
    Only VX6s can also be updated to the ZL2 turrets.
