    Vortex Optics PST 2.5-10x32 Throw Lever

    Hi guys,
    I am very pleased with my new scope fitted to my CZ455 17hmr
    HOWEVER
    the zoom ring is shall we say...
    a little stiff!!
    So I looked at getting a throw lever.........70??? ARE THEY TAKING THE EFFING MICKEY???????


    They're $79 in the States, so no point trying to import directly.


    Can anyone tell me can you get 'em cheaper?
    OR
    is there a 3rd party alternative?

    Over to you lot!!
    You live and learn........
    .........or you don't live long

    Buy a squeeze-ball to strengthen your girly fingers!

    (I have two Vortex PST scopes and find the zoom a little stiff so I'll be watching to see if you get any sensible suggestions.)

    Thanks for that, I too have a vortex with the same problem, I was about to order the expensive throw lever, but first I will try Eric the red advise.

    At this risk of asking the stupid question - you have loosened the small hex key on the zoom ring off a little haven't you? They do come in quite tight from factory and you can adjust the friction level to something that suits you......
