Magnification increase for rangefinder

Does anyone have good ideas on how to increase the magnification on PLRF10 and G7 rangefinders. Small targets at long range are hard to see with low magnification.Need simple solutions for practical use. Thanks, Gary

I mounted a Swarovski doubler on my plrf10 and it works awesome!
I just upgraded to a Vector IV so I am selling the plrf10 and doubler so If you or anyone is interested let me know.

Wolffman, Please post some pictures. How does the doubler affect the light gathering ability of the rangefinder in low light. Have you noticed any disadvantages in using the doubler? Gary

I found the doubler a bit hard to see thru in low light
Your best bet (I think) is to cowitness (parallel aim) a spotting scope with a reticle.
I just got mine and use a Leupold spotter with cross hair.

You could also mount a plain higher powered rifle scope with decent optics to the system.

Nice, is that an adapter you had made for the swaro doubler?
