Vortex Optics SV-5 Switchview Throw Lever

Vortex Optics SV-5 Switchview Throw Lever SKU: SV-5

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but overpriced A much needed and great product, but pretty overpriced. I constantly use the throw lever because I "scope" with my scope instead of with binoculars and it is very helpful. I never have to change optics and reacuire the target

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope add on. This is a great little scope add on. When it cold and things don't move freely, this add on device makes adjusting you scope very easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnification made simple I like to go up and down in Magnification without, leaving the scope. And as a lot of time the rings can be a bit tight so this makes jumping up and down in magnification a lot easier. Simple installation!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Switch view throw lever Just got mine in the mail, the gap where the Allen screw goes when tightened leaves quite a big gap. So me thinking it needed to be closed I tightened it too much and stripped the screw out and bent the bearing part. Totally my fault, I do wish the metal part that touches the scope magnification was rubber, I think it would give a much better grip against the scope and wouldn't scratch the finish. I think it's a good part, the rubber would make it an excellent part.
