    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 the front of the RF, and behind the RF it eliminated FOV.

    The eyepiece is threaded I assume for an accessory?

    I talked to BulzEyePro Optical Boosters and he said that his prodcut would not work.

    Get the plrf pvs14 adapter from vectronix and the Swaro 2x doubler. You have to remove the end piece on the doubler but it works!

    The PVS 14 is, but it's a night vision adaptor. The part I want is the NVI-PLRF

    Ok. The PLRF Night Vision Interface is what it's called. Ashbury Precision Ordinance part # PLRF NVI. You can purchase it from Heather at Tactical and Survival Specialties Inc. 877-535-TSSi. It runs about $275

    UPDATE:

    The Ashbury Precision Ordinance part # PLRF NVI does not direct fit a terrapin RF. It will need modified.

    I can't believe for $2000, the Terrapin doesn't come out of the box with suitable/appropriate magnification.
