Which scope companies are putting quality turrets on their scopes?  I hear Sightron turrets are nice.  Any others?  Other comments on turrets would be great.  Thanks

Could you be a little more specific?

 

By "quality turrets", do you mean target turrets?

I thinking along the lines of repeatability, hold zero, good positive clicks/not mushy. Basically just reliable turrets you can always count on.

Most reputable scope makers put good turets on.  In the mid price market, the only difference you may be able to detect with some scopes is that click precision changes as you get further away from the center of adjustments.  There, at the edge of the adjustment range, the most sccurate and repeatable adjustment, IMO, are Sightron S2 & S3 (not S1) and Weaver Grand Slam and T-series target scopes.

I thought the Sightrons turrets I looked at were very nice. They seemed like they should be on a lot more expensive scope. Euro quality clicks!!

 

I'm not sure how reliable they are, I can only take the word of some friends and many people on line that they are very accurate and reliable.

Good stuff.
