By trimming the dot projection off the BT dot rings and fitting our turrets over them, it allows us to have a clean finish on the turret ring and provides more space for data on the turret, particularly with the 2 revolution turrets.
    Are pics possible?
    Thanks

    Hey there, it depends on what scope model you have for whether they accept MOA or MRAD. The Z3s and Z5s are MOA. The Z6s are all MRAD as far as I am aware. You cant put an MOA on an MRAD scope and expect it to work and visa versa.

    If you want to see how to install our turrets, look here. https://vimeo.com/341274021
    How to remove the factory zero stop is here. https://vimeo.com/339803533
    The scope the demo is done on is a Z6 but it is the exact same process for the Z3 & Z5. The MOA 2 rev turret that is shown in the how to remove the zero stop vid will not work on the Z6, was just to show the process.

    I got and fitted one of those turret rings from trademe for a friends scope. They work great. The one thing Id do different than what he suggested, which I dont think he has worked out is that the ring will fit down over the bottom ring with the marks on it. You then place on of the 3 rings on top before fitting the cap. This does away with 3 lines of marks and if you have a z3 or z5 that has mil marks on a moa scope it makes it look better. No cutting bits off the old rings. Gives you a red dot for when on zero.

    Haha, we have considered that and more. Have a prototype at the anodisers now that will do away with the dot ring altogether and give us more area for data to be engraved. It fits over the bottom of the coupling like you say but is full height to the underside of the cap. So no dot ring mods needed

    Bit of free publicity for @DaveE his custom turret caps are a game changer one of the things that puts people off the swaros is there lack of elevation adjustment. These caps unlock the full potential of these scopes and hes a good bastard to deal with

    Yeap, got one of Dave's rings on my Z5 now. I had a proper Swarovski MOA ring on my last Z5 but this is much better with the option to remove zerostop and run two revolutions, especially on the rainbow trajectory 308 Haha

    Surely he owes a discount for our product testing and reviews?
