Re: Terrapin PLRF05 or PLRF10

Here's some info on adding a doubler to your terrapin.

The Ashbury Precision Ordinance part # PLRF NVI does not direct fit a terrapin RF. It will need modified. It does allow for a very nice fit of the swaro doubler though. If you have the PLRF 10 I believe it is a direct fit. Get a machinist to do it for you. I can't explain it but here are some pics.





I got made fun of for this on SH.

SH has some very good member with lots of knowledge. Problem is, for every one of them there are two mouth piece and another to agree that should keep quiet. If any one of them would push the envelope a little and try to range a coyote at a mile they would soon see why you want more than 6X. It is the only short coming of my PLRF10. You have to be very careful ranging small objects at ELR. I see the need for more magnification often with mine.

There are some epic idiots over there...just ignore the a$$hats.
Some of the best shooters on the planet are also there..Terry Cross, David Tubbs, Zach Smith and a bunch of exceptional shooters.....Unfortunately there are a lot of hangers on and posers to go with that. There are also some pro shooters that can't stand the idea of using such things as bipods...Good Lord the rhetoric can be unbelievable!

Frank (SH owner) and a few other guys are aware of the shortcomings of the Terrapin/plf10 and have developed a trick platform to make it work. If you have a spotting scope with a crosshair they have a bracket that creates a adjustable co-witness (parallel actually) alignment between spotting scope and the Terrapin/Plf10/15....I can't find a link to it right now, but I am planning on buying on myself ($650.00 though!).

I think I prefer the down to earth approach of this site.

EDIT:
Here is the mount I was talking about.

Crap....I don't have a cross hair on my scope. What are the odds that Lieca can install one on my APO-77?
