Howdy, I'm an F-Class shooter looking for a larger adjustment knob for the side focus on an LRT model 8.5x25x50 Leupold. I'm hoping that some one here can give a powder burner a hand with this.
Thanks in advance,
Mike

Oversized focus knobs are generally custom pieces. Lake machiine makes quite a few. Mac 1 airguns sells some for some scope models. They generally just fit over the existing knob and set screw on so you can have one machined locally just about as cheap but it will lack the "cool" factor.

Didn't find any at Mac 1, and there must be 100 lake machine shops in google. Found one in the UK, $200+ USD. Looks like I need to get off my butt and make my own. I already drew one up, not planning on set screwing to factory knob, will replace that with the BIG Side Wheel.

Here's my new 2 oz. Side Focus Wheel, it's 70 mm and replaces the factory Leupold cap.
