    Weaver Super Slam - turret caps :(

    Just got back from a weekend hunt in the Ruahines and have discovered that my windage turrent cap has unscrewed itself and is nowhere to be seen.

    What are my options here?

    Emailed Sportsways, Natchez and Weaver USA - we will see who comes to play ball first.

    If I can't track something down - I guess its not a huge bigee.... I can easily get some white medical tape and tape around the rest of the turret and draw on little dashes and number every fourth click etc. Similar to what I remember Norway doing to convert his MOA click values into MIL click values.

    Atleast it's only the windage and I won't be winding any huge click values on... that's one postive I guess.

    The NZ agents can source a replacement - waiting to hear back on details regading cost/delivery time frame.

    In the mean time - I will put medical tape around the turret and mark little lines with a vivid. Will work fine so long as I can read my numbers etc. Wanting to keep my spare scope brand new.

    Waiting to hear back from Weaver USA themselves as yet.

    OOOKKKAAAYYY

    Right so.. i see it like this.. you take the one off your spare scope and just use that......

    Right now how do we not end up being pedantic here.... Oh thats right when the new turret arrives it will be brand new and go on the spare scope, i doubt even id know when the new one finally shows up that ud swapped them, and your not left in the lurch in the mean time..

    Im happy, your happy, the deer? well the deer can now be dead
