    Do single turn, zero stop CDS turrets exist for the VX6?

    I've got a 3-18x50 and I want a zero stop, single turn turret. Anyone got one? Are they available?

    Thanks in advance

    What do you mean by single turn?
    I have a vx6 with zero stop, Its not flash at all though... a ring(that is stuck on by a sticky thing) with a notch that sticks up an sits under the turret which has a dowl poking down on the inside to stop against said notch. Seems like a very cheap after thought,supplied by nz asia(leupold distributor).

    Single turn being that once the dowel or zero stop mechanism is put in place you cannot turn the turret more than 1 rev.

    I just put a white sticker under the Alumina Cap with how many moa up or down from zero.

    Simple, if in doubt just wind it up or down & count back.

    The VX3 has 15moa a turn & the VX6 has 20, pretty hard to get lost.....

    It will if the regards at NZ Asia are actually driving it. I rang them to enquire about the turret....Jesus, what a shambles. Buying shit should not be a painful experience!!!

    I'm hoping against hope that the zero stop system described above is a roughy put together by NZ Asia and not the factory option.

    On a separate note - how the fuck are NZ Asia still in business???

    I got one the same from the factory it seems to work though. I haven't broken it yet and I can brake most things without trying.

    Can you post up a few pics please Shaka?? Keen to see how it works/looks.

    Did yours come from NZ Asia or direct from Leupold? Custom shop?
