    Scope switch levers for Sightron etc

    I've got several Sightron scopes and also arthritis. Not a good mix when the parallax side focus knob is so hard to turn.
    That aside I really rate them.

    Read a post by @R93 a while back in which he mentioned @stretch was making him one for his power ring on his
    Vortex. Long story short I contact @stretch and attached pics show the results. I'm really pleased with them and
    the turnaround was rapid.

    So you know where to go............!

    Cheers,
    Can't say I have seen one on the parallax turret before?

    Great idea. You may have started a thing

    Some of the scopes Digit used to sell for rimfires had an optional wheel to go on the focus turret.

    Yeah, I suggested a wheel (they're available in various diameters on AliExpress), but a lever best suited @NZ_noddy's stuffed joints.

    I do too in that you can just turn it out of the way when not in use.
