Anyone know if there are universal wheels made for side focus scopes.  Vortex does not seem to offer them.

On my Diamondback Tactical 6-24x50 FFP Riflescope, I used a UTG wheel with the interior rubber nubs removed and it fits perfect.  I just used a rotary tool to grind down the humps so that the interior of the rubber ring is round, and it slides snugly on the PA knob.

Good Luck!

I wrote a review of it here.

I think the build quality is amazing, but I'm not as thrilled with the optics.
