      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

Don't forget to identify yourself and do use your registered email address to make contact. All this is necessary, as admin must be able to identify who you are and that it is your post that you wish to edit.   Admin. will make the edit if it appears necessary. Note, if you want to change something that could easily be achieved by adding a further post to the thread, you will be expected to do it.   Forum staff generally view new posts added to threads since their last visit.

This saves members' time wading through posts that are effectively "dead".   DaveL

Have you tried re-focussing the parallax (i.e. front lens) for 20m?

 

Search for parallax adjustment here if not.

Although I havn't tried resetting the front lens on a Simmons, it should not be any different to the rest.

The front lens has a locking ring which with care can be unscrewed, there are two notches cut into the base of the locking ring.

Cut a piece of cardboard and drop it onto the surface of the lens to protect it. I use an electricians screwdriver to lever the locking ring in an anti clockwise direction to unwind it.

It is then a case of winding in or out the main lens holding ring.

Once you have acieved the focus that you need, refit the outer locking ring.

Should save you the bother of purchasing another scope.
