Default target knobs

Are target knobs only for certain scopes or can they be added on to any scope?

I have found that "most" scopes are available with target knobs.

I would highly recommend them as opposed to the knobs that are recessed and need a quarter to adjust.

What scope are you looking at purchasing?

I already have a scope and it has the recessed adjustments. I'm wondering if I can change them

There are after markek target knobs for Leupold scopes that screw on to inplace of the caps. I`m sure that they are made for other brands also, but don`t know who makes they or where you can get them.

Some of the OEM manufacturers make them.

But do you need them??? As much as I love them on target and err...."special" rifles, I wouldn't have them on a hunting rifle on a bet.

They would be going on my target rifle. I have problems making adjustments accurately. I think the knobs would help me get more precision on my shots. I'm currently trying to make something but nothing really working

Those are very very nice but I just cant see myself paying $109 for a set of turrets for my $179 scope . Good source though as they seem to make them for alot of scopes .
