    Leupold screw on Dials (SOD)

    Here is the spiel from leupy.....

    Designed to replace the cap covers on the majority of Leupold’s riflescopes, these all-aluminum dials offer large, knurled surfaces so adjustments are easy and sure, even when wearing gloves. The S1 dial is engraved in ¼-MOA increments and the S5 in 0.1 MIL. Both come with a locking zero stop and can be equipped with the Custom Dial System (CDS) through the Leupold Custom Shop.

    There’s no need to send in the riflescope, as these dials are completely user-changeable. Just remove the cap on the adjustment dial, and simply screw the S1 or S5 on in its place. It automatically aligns with the adjustment slot and securely tightens down. Unlike other aftermarket dials, the Leupold S1 and S5 dials completely eliminate backlash.


    I have fitted a few of these caps now (in the .250 moa per click model) and they work, and work very well, its great not having to send scopes away and the downtime that creates.

    The instructions are clear and precise



    The bottom screws to the scope


    And they look and work well




    I get mine from Rivers to Ranges Hawkes Bay and Jeremy, Mitch or Mark are extremely helpful, 06-8787177

    They retail around $179


    This quick solution to a normally time consuming problem means more time for Hunting !!!

    Is this a "one size fits all" solution. Meaning you could just screw this onto any Leupold scope?

    Why didn't they have those when I had my Leupold scope.

    Yes, but far far far far back in my memory im sure the early vx1 scopes had a different cap thread dia so these wouldn't fit, unless you made a bush to fit.

    So its possible the earliest vx1 might not be able to use these new Dial up dials.

    Had a look at these in a store a few weeks back, look pretty neat for making a simple vx1,2,3 with just a duplex reticle a much more versatile setup!

    I saw these advertised in R & R, but couldn't find who was stocking them here, cheers.

    Hmmm might be just the thing I need for my VX3 4.5-14. Was going to give it the biff for something with a twirly top.

    If they have a zero stop that is pretty good. I like the CDS because it does not stick out to much and there are less chances of ripping the turret off during a fall in the bush.

    So, dumb question here
    If you got the mil ones can you fit them to a leupy and now have mil clicks instead of moa.

    Leupold screw on Dials (SOD)

    The SOD moa dial up turret definitely fits the VX1 leupolds as well

    Remove the cover


    Then add the spindle


    Then the screw on base


    Then the zero stop collar and "E" clip




    And lastly the MOA graduated dial


    I have been testing it on a factory model 7 in 7mmsaum, 140bt@3200fps, 19 inch barrel.

    Its dialling well to 1000yrds -so theres usable life in those old VX-1 Leupolds !!!!!

    Ps: i had a very early VX-1 here a month ago and this dial system did not fit it, the slot in the scopes elevation shaft was too low for the cap to drive into, so it seem only the later VX-1 scopes benefit from this system, and every other later VX model.
