    Does anyone know what if any larger aftermarket wheel will fit this turret?

    I’ll look into that, I didn’t know if there was a certain pattern or how they even mounted them. If they slit on or had some kind of set screw

    Coonslayer,

    Here are about 8 choices for you:

    ​There are about 3 companies which make sidewheels, some as cheap as 80 bucks.

    Wow Addertooth thanks for the info! I had no idea ScopeWerks were making side wheels for the Athlon Scopes! And man they are beautiful! I have wished Athlon would come out with side wheels of their own but so far they have not. For my Athlon Scopes I simply buy the Leapers Side Wheels for 12.95 and make the center hole about 1mm larger using my Dremel Tool, and they work perfect and look great.

    Hey Ruddy, I forgot to tell you that I think it would look really cool if you got a can of silver spray paint and made your sidewheel the same color as your beautiful BKL scope rings…
    I painted my Wildcat stock dove gray and later painted the sidewheel to match and it looks just great. Guys at the range are always asking me where I found a sidewheel to match my stock! :-) Black just gets to be soooooooooo boring!
    All the best, Chuck

    Hey Chuck ,  im located in Pembroke Pines .. very close to Markham Park, I did not know that there was a gun range in that park, it’s great to know that now ….. I think it’s a good idea to get together to shoot our rifles, maybe this Sunday we could go. Let me get your cel  number to talk by text on the phone 👍.
