PLRF 10 Modification

I have been using the PLRF 10 for several weeks now and it is just incredible. The only drawback was the low magnification sometimes would not allow sure alignment on a distant target like a deer in a brush patch across a canyon. I took a 2x multiplier from Swarovski and built this mount to quick detach from my tripod. I now have enough magnification to confidently place the crosshairs on the animal and it absolutly rocks.

Re: PLRF 10 Modification

Very nice setup Shawn. God, how I love gadgets!

Were you able to physically attach the 2x Swaro to the PLRF? Or is the 2x Swaro just up against the PLRF and both held together by the mount you made? Thanks in advance, Ray

It will read 2500-2600 anytime and 2990's in good conditions. This thing rocks.

Re: PLRF 10 Modification

So where do you pick on of those range finders up at, what is the cost of one of those things? Do they ready actual, or do you have to still figure out angle and all that fun stuff?
