    Any one know how to zero this

    Hi

    Correct , it had a 14mm mounting rail, has a single turret which moves, and a peice like the top of a wing nut inside, i suppose one is for elevation and one is for windage ?

    Also has 3 screws in the turret ?

    The one I have only moves elevation and it should have a claw mount for the windage but they are very hard to find. I got in touch with Zeiss and gave them the scope number they e-mailed me a printout of the scope, wich they said was one of the first ones made when they started making scopes. What I did was get a set of one inch adjustable weaver mounts got them bored out to 26mm and fitted a weaver rail to the gun to take the mounts, not cheap but it worked. Atb Woodydog.

    This has a rear claw mount with 2 grub screws for windage, so does the main dial just move using the outer knurled edge , or do you use that strange wing nut thing in the middle ?

    Hi mine has not got the wing nut thing my best advice would be send an e-mail with the scope number to zeiss as you could damage it if you get it wrong. Sorry I cant be anymore help. Atb Woodydog.
