Quote:Hi,I just received a 11 lb losmandy counterweight I'm planning to use on CGEM DX. It came with a locking screw, however, there is no hole on the side of counterweight that the locking screw goes in.Do I need to drill the counterweight to use the lock screw or am I missing something here ???

Quote:You realize it won't weigh quite as much if they drill a hole in it, right?
