Abstract

A viewing optic is disclosed. In one embodiment, the viewing optic is a rifle scope having a scope body, a movable optical element defining an optical axis connected to the scope body, a turret and a zero point adjustment subassembly. The turret includes a turret screw, a turret chassis subassembly and a turret cap. The turret screw defines a screw axis and is operably connected to the optical element for adjusting the optical axis in response to rotation of the screw. The turret cap at least partially overlaps the turret chassis subassembly. The zero point adjustment subassembly includes a zero cap connected to the turret screw and a locking mechanism. The locking mechanism releasably secures the zero cap and the turret. The zero point adjustment subassembly permits adjustment of the zero point without the use of tools.

Abstract

A riflescope with a scope body has a movable optical element defining an optical axis connected to the scope body. The riflescope also has a turret having an outer knob and a turret screw defining a screw axis and operably connected to the optical element for changing the optical axis in response to rotation of the turret screw. The riflescope also includes a zero-adjustment assembly contained within the turret and operably interfacing with the turret screw. The zero-adjustment assembly comprises a zero-adjustment disc and a locking collar disposed around a downward facing central shaft of the zero-adjustment disc. The zero-adjustment disc is contained in an upper recess of the outer knob. The locking collar has a first position in which the zero-adjustment disc is freely rotatable about the turret screw and a second position in which free rotation of the zero-adjustment disc is prevented.
