    Is this the way?

    Remove outside ring with golden ring.
    Remove inside lock ring.
    Adjust lens carrier.

    At what distance do you set the closest focusing?
    Think i read something about not to go to low, because the ranging suffers?

    Now I have 8,5m to 65m...

    This is correct

    What you have discibed is the correct way to do the job.
    You may find the locking ring is tight,when i did mine i cut some ring's of cardboard and covered the lens incase i slipped.
    You will have to try a few time's before you get it right,but start at 10 yds and see what your gap's look like.
    The gaps should slightly increase from about 12mm from 55-50 and get progressively bigger as you get towards 10 yds.
    If you get big gap then small gap it will need to be re-done.

    Do not attempt to re parallax a comp below 9 yards or the longer range finding, the bit that really matters, will suffer. :eek:

    If you really need the close ranges buy a Leupold close focus adaptor. :)

    Agreed - I would not bring one down under 10 yards if you want any chance of getting a repeatable 55 yard mark.

    Will it get better at ranging by choosing lets say 11yards?

    All I can sya is that my 45x Comp was set to 9 yards and I could not repeat anything 50 yards or over.

    I reset to 10 yards minimum and it now works fine.

    My 40x comp is set to 10 yards and with a Leupold close figure adaptor it will focus to 6.3 yards. :)
