    Asking on behalf of a friend
    He's telling me that when he tries to focus on 50-55yds he struggles.
    He uses the thread on the target bolts to parallax onto and tells me that when he does this at 50-55 yds they appear to have no threads just blurred bars.
    Is this a parallax problem?Can the scope be adjusted and how? Or is it a warrantee job?
    thanks simon

    Turn the mag down to 40x or even 35x and see if he can see clearly then.

    Yes most people i know (including me) range find on 35 mag.50 mag is just a little too critical for most people's eyes.

    He might just have a bad one. I have seen very different results from Nikkos, a couple I have used will almost rival my lueps and some are utter pants. I would suggest your mate gets hold / trys another nikko on the same target to see how it compares.

    Hi Guys,
    I would suggest there is a problem with this scope.
    I have 2 new model Nikko big 60 scopes fitted to my 2 EV2 rifles.
    Both of them are crystal clear on 50 mag when focusing at 55 yds.
    So clear i can see the threads of the string that is attached to the target.
    Several of my FT club shooters use these scopes and there has been no problems focusing at 50mag on the long range targets.
    If you need to turn the scope down to 35mag to focus at 50-55 yds there is a problem with the scope.
    Hope you can get it sorted.
