I found an outfit in the UK that stocks them, but for $200 USD each plus the shipping, I'll have a local machine shop make them.

you mean like this?
 
 
or this?
 
 
In the shooting circle I play in the sidewheels are used for rangefinding in a sport called field target.  We shoot airguns at 10-55 yards with unknown ranges and the big wheel is used to put yardage marks on it so when we turn the wheel we have a yardage mark to guess with.

It is a lot nicer than my old Gamo. Your rifle is way to nice to be used shooting opossums out of the garage' Those are very good pics. too. I have never been exposed to the world of target air rifle and did not understand your post. Thank you for showing me what you were taking about. Be assured I have no help in this specialized area. Welcome to OT you will be able to bring a new world of expertise to the forum. Tahqua or Rifledude may be able to help you. Good luck   Lile

jono those are WILD!  I had one made and am working on another design that should be lighter, need to stay under 8.25 kg for F/TR Class. 
I just want to be able to fine focus my 50x Premier/Leupolds as perfect as possible at 300, 600 and 1000 yds.
