    Leopold MK4

    Just mounted a Leopold Mk4 onto my 308 Brno ZKK601.

    Looking sweet so far.

    Bore sighted it and will zero it on the range tomorrow.

    Question is what size Allen key is used to remove the grub screws on the elevation & windage turrets so I can zero the turrets once sighted in?


    I tried a 1mm Allen Key that was too small and 2mm was too big and I don't have a 1.5mm Allen key .

    Would this be metric or imperial?

    Any help would be appreciated

    Cheers
    Pete

    Leupold = US = Imperial, they like to be different
    We have stuff at work which has some of the parts manufactured in the US and the rest in Canada. Uses a mixture of both, Frustrating to say the least, just like chippies who use a mixture of Square, philips and slot drive screws in the same job

    Hahahaha

    Your not wrong James!

    No point in spending like a drunken sailor.

    The seller wanted over $1k for it James ..... but it seems it shares the same serial number with several other Mk4's I was able to find on the net.
    We renegotiated and I paid $150 including a set of mounts.
    Only time will tell if I got a bargain or not.

    I bore sighted it in the back yard old school style.

    Took it to the range and fired one shot at 25m which showed I was about a 1" high.

    Fired two shots at 100m and found I was about 5" high and 1" left...... several clicks later on both turrets and three more shots showed I was 2" high and good to go.

    Six shots from bore sighting ...... not too bad even if I do say so myself.

    Spent the rest of the afternoon sending slugs downrange from a tricked out AR15 ... .... It got bloody addictive and slightly competitive too after a few shots I can tell you.

    Cheers
    Pete
