    Hiya, has anyone any ideas to make or buy something that will prevent you being a full turn out on your clicks. I'm sure someone out there has had the same problem which is very frustrating when it happens.

    Ive had a ring made up in the past for just this reason on a deben.
    Alloy ring that will sit under turret ,grub screw to lock it in place. Just needs enoigh clearamce to let you go mayne half a turn down past your zero but not a full turn. Or as memtioned a stack of orings

    I would think one of the 3d printing folks could make something up fairly easily?

    if the ring and the turret have the same diameter, jou will notice a gap and so most of the times prevent shooting while being 1 or 2 turns out!

    That’s why I made it with four I think you call it “grubsrews” so you can adjust it up or down.

    You say that you made it, I was going to ask where did you buy it from.

    I made it for a friend and competitor but it also depends on what kind of turret you have.
    For myself I made a delrin turret with carbon sleeve thet bottoms out 10 or so click’s past zero, like this
