Yes, cable ties do the job but I'm worrying about the scope surface and would make a fixed base element, like a small collar on the scope tube. Also working on its pair, a magnifier for the elevation turret, of course wit a lot of adjustments, too.

The scope magnifier is laser sintered, with a Fresnel lens in it, and fits to all scopes, also to scope enhancers. For more photos and details please look at my article here:

The main question is what to do with the magnifier when carrying the rifle and when putting into the soft/hard case. When fixed with the cable ties, it's easy to rotate it onto the top of the scope. Hopefully I can do the same with a fixed base, and the product will be available for all the FT shooters soon.
What a good idea.
Let your shooting do the talking.
It's not the aim and release that decided the shot, it's the preparations.
