    I picked up my Comp today and I'm trying to fit a Jon Harris wheel. The bit I'm stuck on is popping the Leupold badge off the parallax drum. Can anyone help me with the technique I need and the best tool to use please? Using the point of little nail scissors and plenty of swearing is not working.

    The wheel fits to the nylon lug underneath, it has to come off. I sorted it now thanks to a members PM with his number to ring.

    I had to fill a cup almost full with boiling water and suspend the badge just under the surface of the water for a few seconds, prises straight off then. Next obstacle was the torx screw that had threadlock on it. To sort this heat the torx bit that comes with the scope in a flame and then hold it in the screw head to transfer the heat. Easy when you are told how.
