All of my scopes, with the exception of the Bushnell Elite 4200, have the quick focus style ocular. No problem focusing any of the quick style oculars since I rotate them (most anyway) counterclockwise and bingo I'm in business. My question is, " Is it possible to rotate the Elite ocular so far that it disengages completely from the threads ??". If the answer is yes, will the nitrogen gas escape ?? My shooting eye is at a +3.0 dioper so I tend to be at the extreme adjustments of my scopes.

It's a "fast focus" eye piece, if memory serves me.

It should have stops on both ends. Meaning, I don't believe you can totally unscrew it.

Ther are no stops. The eyepiece is threaded onto the tube. At least that what it looks like. My other scopes definitely have stops. The Elite 4200 does not.
