    Retrofitting Elevation turret ##HELP##

    Hi guys,
    I have a Carl Zeiss 4.5-14x44 scope. I like it but would like it more if it had a larger tactical style turret for evevation to replace the factory turret knobs.
    Does anyone know if it's possible to purchase and fit replacement turrets for this scope? Likewise, is there a NZ based specialist I can use (I'd rather not remove scope from rifle if possible).
    Much appreciated

    Brad

    Brad, I had a conquest retro fitted with target turrets that replaced the original covered hunting turrets. Was done by Zeiss in USA. Conquest were a USA made scope. Try the local agent to see if they still offer this service.

    Thanks for response. I've tried nz agents & they don't know if it can be done now that zeiss are no longer USA (Germany now). Maybe if there is an aftermarket kit I can purchase I can do it myself?

    Is Ross still the rep? He was quite helpful for me a number of times? I have his cell number if you need it.

    I had these guys retro-fit an elevation and windage turret on a Zeiss Diavari. Try them, though you'll have to send the scope away to the US.
