Hi Jason, I have not had this problem but perhaps it is because I have spent a lot of time mucking around with turret scopes.

It is possible that the torx screw was siomply too firm when you went to undo it, causing initial problems.

I hold the turret and the scope body between my fingers.

I only nip up the screws. There is no need for heavy tightening and indeed, I have seen threads ruined on various scopes from such practices.

I have never had a turret slip after being nipped up. So again, no need for heavy tightening.

You should be just fine once you get the hang of it.

It sounds as though you have made excellent progress so far Jason. Fantastic.
