    Default Stuck Side Wheel

    A few months ago I bought a Nikko targetmaster 10-50x60 scope.

    Scope is fine but recently I tried to remove the side wheel.

    Cannot seem to get it off.

    I've contacted the guy who sold it to me, but maybe someone has experience with this:

    I could find a match for the side wheel and it seems to be optisan viper wheel:





    the big wheel was removed with 3 screws in the front:







    All grub screws and other 3 screws in the front was removed:
    ( on some of the pictures you can still seem them, but this was only not to loose them)

    The back of the side wheel has smaller diameter that the 2 knobs of the parallax and I can only pull this the wheel away from the scope until the 2 knob touch the back metal. the back also has no notch to align with the knobs on the parallax.






    I tried to wiggle and maneuver the wheel to get it off but it won't budge.

    Without damaging the scope or removing the parallax knob ( which I'm not sure how to do) , is there any advice to remove the side wheel?

    I don't know this scope but:
    What you are calling the outer parallax wheel looks more like an illumination control wheel to me. Try removing the battery cover and then the battery. There may be additional grub screws in this wheel or under the battery that allow you to remove it.
