You want an add-on optic to increase the magnification of a 25X scope?  There are so many problems with that, optical and otherwise, as to make it all but impossible to make - and all but useless to deploy.

I would like to know what that product is and how it works.

Typically you sacrifice image quality with third party add-ons, but since I have not seen the product in question I can't say anything specific.

  I bet you're thinking of something like this, right?

 Never used one, but I have my doubts...especially boosting the high-end 25X to 75X!

a multiplier -- sniperhide had a guy selling them about a week ago, made some strong claims.  the multipliers I've used for cameras are marginal, and can't see riflescopes coming even close. I have a 2x muliplier made by Canon for a Canon macro 50  lense, set that is about as good as it gets, and it still has chromatic abbreations (sp?) with vignetting at the edges-- good luck.

PM sent

I like my Gene Davis booster, I have another on order for my Leupold without the threaded eye piece, this time a 4x.  It doesn't boost it 3 times as posted here, it's multiplied by .3, so my 20X50X50 Premier/Leupold is now a 26X65X50, and I can see my .223 holes at 300 yds.

I use them for F-Class Matches @ 300 and 600 yds., theres nothing better that I've tried.  The ability to see the x and rings of the x and 10 is mind blowing, as my scores have improved  since I installed it.  The last match I shot at Peru, N.Y.  I won with a 148-5x, 150-5x, 150-11x for a total of 448-21x, setting the club record and tied the NRA 300 yd F/TR-F/Open record of 150-11x www.nrahq.org/compete/natl-records.asp

A great product, www.bulzeyepro.com

Same product that i've found, but without even using the item it's dismissed and rejected by most .

Check it out, because seeing is believing.  It carries a 45 day money back warrenty, because not everyones eye will work with it.  Send them an email and talk to Rusty or Gene, they'll help you.  If nothing else check out the web page and read about it.
 
I don't shoot a match with out it, and my scrores where proof to me.
