I have to ask you, just where and how do you super glue this turret ? Do I glue it along the outside of the turret along the bottom of the turret where the turret and scope body intersect and just wipe the excess glue off the scope tube body ? or do I remove the turret some how and glue it in the inside some how ? Can pictures be sent or posted to show me before I screw my new scope up. I like these Super sniper scopes very much, but I have only shot approx. 50 rounds thru mine before it loosened up on me.Also I am confused from email from SWFA, it said Bushnell would glady fix this problem, yet my manual and my understanding was that Tasco was the manufacturer, what is the connection here ?
Thanks For Any Info,

The original poster that used glue is referring to something completely different than you. He was talking about about the metal ring with horizontal reference lines on it. This band is glued around the turret housing in manufacturing and has no mechanical value it is solely to let you know what revolution you are on with your knob.
DO NOT GLUE YOUR TURRET, KNOB, GEARS, INSIDE OF SCOPE, ETC.
Sound like to me your knobs are just getting lapped or broken in. At firs they can be really tight because the grease has not spread out and the splines are still sharp. Rotating the turrets back and forth over and over is recommended for any tactical scope to lap the splines and spread out the grease evenly.
