New Universal Switchview Scope Magnification Adjusting Lever

MGM switchview optic ring adjusterMGM Targets has released a new polymer version of its popular alloy Switchview Speed Lever for optics. The new Eagle Eye Switchview Lever functions just like the Gen 1 aluminum versions, but at less than half the price. The polymer SwitchView costs $24.99 vs. $59.95 for alloy. Both models allow rapid, positive adjustment of scope magnification. But the big advantage of the new polymer version is UNIVERSAL Fit. The polymer Eagle Eye SwitchView easily adjusts to fit virtually any variable-power scope. It simply and securely attaches around the scope magnification ring.

The Eagle Eye Switchview is injection-molded from Zytel 66 (aka Nylon 66). This material is widely used in the firearms industry for Glock pistol frames and many other firearms components. The material was selected for its durability and temperature stability — it will not become brittle in cold or overly flexible in the heat. Nylon 66 is also resistant to breakdown due to chemical exposure.

Polymer Switchview Version Designed for General Use
Travis Gibson, MGM Vice President, tells us: “The Eagle Eye Switchview lever was specifically engineered to be a magnification adjustment lever for pistol, rifle, and spotting scope optics, and was extensively tested for just this purpose. It is not a re-purposed fishing reel holder, cable tie, or wine bottle opener. The polymer Eagle Eye Switchview lever was designed from customer feedback to be a bit less rigid than the aluminum alloy Switchview. When compared to the alloy models, on initial installation the lever may seem a little ‘springy’. This is by design, to allow for movement if the lever was to be accidentally bumped on a tree, or while being transitioned in and out of gun cases, vehicles, etc. and not transmit impact to the magnification ring and scope. While rigorous tests and evaluations in the field have proven it to be extremely reliable, the primary intent for the Eagle Eye Switchview is for use on hunting type rifles, and not necessarily ‘work guns’ or ‘hard use’ guns such as with military and law enforcement.”

As with all MGM Targets products, the Eagle Eye Switchview™ lever is made in USA. Every kit includes:
One MGM Eagle Eye Switchview lever, two universal fit clamp straps, connection screws, and wrench.
