    Noticed this at Thorn Dell by my Big Nikko is biting at around the 11yd mark and the drag has increased around the 45yd mark. I'm guessing the rain it had to take at the Master may have had an effect.

    Is this easy to fix?

    Haven't got time to learn one properly Simon, pushing on with getting out of C Grade and fear big changes may not help :)

    Aye, was wonder if it was something I could fix tho :)

    Mines a MKIII but as it's nothing to do with the Ret or going inside, maybe someone on here will know.

    Leup Mk4 instructions
    below -5 degrees, take 2.5 yards off.

    at all other times believe your wheel.
    So far, the Comp series is just as easy to use as the Mk4.


    I not owned a 20-50 for any amount of time, I believe they are the ones that need learning ?


    good luck with the allen keys?

    Remove o ring

    Take side wheel hub off and remove fine o ring.
    You will probably find the o ring has snapped cause it's very thin, replace hub and side wheel with a smear of grease inside hub.
    If it's still the same send it back to highland outdoor for replacement.

    I think the old adage that it takes time and different situations to learn a scope stand Si and big changes do take a while I find. I remember changing the hamster, butt and check piece in one go and it felt like someone else's gun for about 2 months.
