By William from USA on 2009-11-16 08:33:52Things I liked:This is a "must have" item when combined with a scope with side parallax wheel adjustment. You can quickly focus on target and get the distance for the correct shot. I mounted mine on a Leapers 4-16 x 56 mil dot scope. The fit on the Hammerli 850 mag in .22 was perfect using Square D high mounts. You still have clearance to load the 8 shot mag.
Things I would have changed:Nothing
What others should know:Prior to purchasing the Leapers scope and side wheel, I contacted Pyramyd Air techs to see it the wheel would allow me to load the mag. in the 850. Their suggestion of buying the 80mm was right on !

By Darryl from USA on 2011-10-10 07:20:06Things I liked:It provides leverage for turning the side focal knob, which is stiff and difficult to turn without the side wheel.
Things I would have changed:I'd make it more of a ranging tool by making it's yardage markings more accurately matched to the yardage marking on the the focal knob. There is no way to align the marks of the former with the marks on the latter.
What others should know:As a leverage device this wheel works very well, and is needed (in my opinion) for smooth and easy operation when changing focus. I don't know if I should have sent my sample back for an exchange, but I didn't. It's informative purpose of providing range information at a glance is seriously degraded by how inaccurately it's yardage numbering matches up with those on the targeting knob. This means one has to either a)choose which yardage scale to use; the one on the scope's focal knob; or the one on the wheel. Or b) use a separate ranging scope. As a leverage tool the price is right.
