magnifying a terrapin

Has any one come up with a method of magnifying their terrapins 5x to something higher? By using an AR tripler or a 2x magnifier? I tried a tripler (burris) but it blocked the laser if I mounted it in thr front of the RF, and behind the RF it eliminated FOV.

Re: magnifying a terrapin

Try the search on this site,maybe under plrf 10. Shawn C. mounted a 10 on a alum.plate with what looked like a swaro 2x in front. I have a 2x also. He made the coupler out of alum. I will make mine from hard wood,since easier for me. Then the whole assembly is on tripod. I saw a picture of it and a good idea. You will loose field of view, cant have both high power and fov.

I would also look at these:

BulzEyePro Optical Boosters for Rifle Scopes and Handgun Scopes

Been considering it for my swaro, but I agree for the terrapin it would really be handy to have some more magnification

Thanks guys! The problem I ran into with having it in front of the RF was that the laser lens and your viewing lens are very close. The magnifier in front blocks the laser some.

Re: magnifying a terrapin

I would like it if these optical boosters would screw into the Terrapins lens in the front, it seems there are some threads to screw in something. Does anyone know what the thread count is on the terrapins?

Re: magnifying a terrapin

That is how the Swaro 2x works,unscrew eye cup and screw on doubler,for bino. If so might make a adapter. I have also seen a adapter that mounts under parent optic and has a round sleeve to hold piece in front of eye piece.
