I've tried searching, but can't seem to locate any info. 

Anyhoo,  I have the SWFA SS 5-20x.  I love itExcellent.  My only gripe is that the parallax knob is a little hard to turn.  I have to get off the scope, and grab a fist grip to adjust.  Is there anyway to lighten  this up?  Is removing the cap advisable?  I haven't tried yet.  I've had the scope a good 6months, and figured it would lighten up, but know luck yet.

Thanks,
Marty

I would not advise any dis-assembly, I would advise you call SWFA on Monday. Mine was a bit stiff when I got it, but after a evening in the easy-chair moving it stop to stop, it's fine. But if yours is still giving you problems, call SWFA.
