if its a 6.5mag yes BUT your new one may have an additional ring blocking the threads, older ones didnt have the ring...some on here have managed to heat it just enough to loosen the locktight and get it off. Adapters are available for the 4.7x versions, might see them on fleabay

I fitted the Yukon doubler to my 6.5 photon best thing I did. I couldn't get the blocker ring of mine and I got it very very hot but just got a coller made so th double screws into it,then slides over the Yukon photon lens, glued it on. don't miss much now regularly can get rabbits at 100m 222. Cnc shop made one for me 40-50 quid well worth it. I Got 2 made ready for another photon.

Used to use batteries like no tomorrow until I tried the enagizer ultimate lithium ones last very long time now. And of course better ir light clamps on top but clamp it at the back other wise get glare of moderator. But defiantly get the doubler fitted as soon as pos, your never go back.

Have you got a pic of this collet, got a doubler sat here by the locking ring is extremely tight on mine so perhaps another alternative is available.
