    Hi all
    How many FT shooters have had difficulty locating and making a purchase of the weird shaped side wheels which make accurate range finding out at 50+yards easier
    I spent ages trying to contact manufactures across Europe. Either they don’t want the business or are so expensive they were out of my budget
    Anyway problem solved when I found CCA in the US of A. The owner Hector Gómez is a great guy and very customer orientated, super quick to reply to emails and his solution to the range finding is a shape evolved around the snails shell and 3D printed in ABS. It’s strong and light weight
    Mine arrived promptly and was simple to fit even coming with its own white tape already in place
    Can’t say enough good things about this supplier compared to European companies

    Shut up Bob,;)
    I am looking for a wheel for my Nikko 3 that I use in Bulgaria. No chance, apparently.
    I am getting to test all the latest JSB batches on Sunday though. :) Yes, here in Europe.
    What batches will be best in my FTP 900 ?
    Let you know after brexit.:D
