Even before buying our first Swarovski rifle scope, it was clear that a solution was required to remove the limitations of the three ballistic ring turret system. After making and testing several prototypes, we found a lightweight solution. We could now offer a variety of different layout options that would remove the limitations to these Swarovski Z3, Z5, and Z6 hunting scopes. We could now provide the operator the ability to dial their scope to many more than the four preset distances available with the three ballistic ring system. In late 2019 we set about designing a prototype two-piece turret system for the NEW Nightforce NX8 riflescopes. With the NX8 being shorter and lighter than the NXS models it was a true contender for being mounted on top of many long-range hunting rifles. The driver behind our design was adaptability, we wanted to provide the user the opportunity to easily swap out their turret ring should the load or rifle be changed during the life of the scope.

During our testing program, we found that removing the factory zero stop and mounting the rifle scope and rings on a 20 MOA rail, unleashed the capability of these rifle scopes even further. This finding brought about the need for the two revolution turret series that we have available for all Z5(i) and Z6(i) BT rifle scopes. Remove the zero stop on your Z5 3.5-18x44 mountain hunter and mount it on a 20 MOA rail, match that with a Z5-SMOA-2REV Custom Scope Turret and you will now increase your useable dial-up from 13.25 SMOA to 29 SMOA of elevation adjustment. Do the same with your Z6(i) 3-18x50, match that up with a Z6-MRAD-58-2REV Custom Scope Turret and you will go from 5.3 MRAD to 11.6 MRAD of elevation adjustment.
