I agree, but once one manufacturer has done it I suppose another feels obliged to follow. I'd also prefer small turrets with dust caps.
Having said that the sidewheel and pointer are produced in large numbers for all of the Sidewinder range, including those on which they may be more relevant, so I think the cost of sticking them in the package would be minimal and thus their removal not a great saving.
Fancy a padded pellet storage box???
