Hey guys, just got a brand new Minox Zp5 in today. Scope is awesome, other than the turret that appears to drift in regards to the markings.
YES I’VE RESET THE TURRETS, several times.
And I actually don’t mind the overall feel of the turrets. They are very similar to my Premier. The tension going into the 2nd rev on mine is minimal.

Anyone else’s turrets look like this or do I have to send it back? Thanks

Who did you purchase it from ? Please call them first for instructions on how to handle.

Mine does not do that, but I had either a Nightforce or a Vortex that did that.

Edit: I was able to minimize it by pressing down firmly on the turret cap while tightening the set screws during the turret reset operation. Must have been the Nightforce since turrets on the Vortex scopes I own just had the flat disc/cap that comes off the turret assembly.

They are as tight as they’ll go.
In that case, you probably need to contact the dealer you purchased it from or send it to Minox for service. I'm actually having some issues with my second ZP5 that came in yesterday and CS Tactical is taking great care of me. They have replied to my emails almost immediately and already proactively called me twice today.

All 4 of mine I currently have dont do that. Neither did the ones I got rid of.

Sounds like you have a few options from Rich, Doug, or going to Minox/Blaser USA.
