    It's nice to hear that I'm not the only one who's going blind, there are others in the same boat.

    Nemesis could you post or PM some clearer pictures of you magnifying gadget.

    Many Thanks Jimbo

    I'm using a pair of milk bottles at the moment so any help I can get would be appreciated.
    Seriously though I really need something bolted on the scope rather having to worry about spec's.

    All mine is the Andras eagle eye magnifyer that folds flat. For years I had the magnifyer held on with cable ties then I'd slide it underneath the ocular lens when putting it in the gun bag.
    I asked Andras to make something fancy that would fold away when not in use, he now makes them for any scope tube diameter. I just replaced the freshnell lens with a plastic magnifyer, its that simple.
