    Jon, There are at least 3 in MFTA winter League.

    Easy to re paralax to range from 17-70 yd on the sidewheel with decent 10mm gaps at 50-55. Use a 50 ft adapter below 17 if you need to. I have an adapter, but it not essential.as I can Takes out targets down to 8yd reducers on 4 mag every time without it.

    To re paralax, loosten front ring and turn lense out a few degrees at a time with paralax wheel on infinity. Use a target at 70yd to focus on and turn the lense out until in clear focus. Lock off the outer ring and check its stil as you require. It should now range from 17-70 yd. A great scope If you need zoom for standers without the bulk of Nikko etc. I have 4, so am well used toi them now!

    No front focus jobby Jev.

    Not quite as straight forward leave it alone same as the Ziellers.
