Binocular IPD question

Postby Stargazer2012 on Sat Sep 01, 2012 10:00 am

Is it possible to modify how far apart a pair of binos open to get a wider IPD? Looks to me that if you grind the stops between the tubes back a bit you could gain a few more millimeters. The pair I have are 73mm max. The exit pupils are 7mm, which helps. I just need a bit more IPD to be comfortable. Has anyone done this and is it doable?

Haven't seen it done. Might void the warranty though. You may want to check into that before you try the modification.
