    My Mk4 Ulta x32 Prem Ret luep is not working as it should.

    Markings for 40 m now come in at 45 meteres, 45 in at 47m and 50m past 50m!

    unsrew and Move the side wheel so 40 is back on 40m mark, , focus once and 40 is 40, then a 2nd time and 40 is back to 45 and so on.
    Seems that something is not moving as it should?

    Tried re-parralaxing front ring, same results.

    Presume its some sort of internal fault?

    So, anyone know of person or persons who fix Mk4 Prem ret lueps?


    Otherwise its another mk4 or comp series wanted:eek:

    You could try contacting Simon Ayres - simona on here. I am sure he told me he had his Mk4 serviced by a UK based company IIRC he called them Optrep, this service included replacing the reticle that he broke.

    I do have Nick Jenkinson's number - not sure if Nick can help but if you can get hold of him he might be able to offer advice.
