The SV1613-1655 Switchview throw lever is pretty much a “must have” addition to any variable powered magnified optic. We’ve heard customers say it many times before…”once you use one, you won’t be able to figure out how you ever shot without one before”!!!
Just like our entire line of standard and folding Switchview throw levers, we machine our SV1613-1655 Switchview throw lever is out of 6061-T6 aluminum. We also hard anodize all of our aluminum products to provide you many years of “hard use” no matter what you’re doing with your gear. We’re also proud to say that 100% of the Switchview product line is manufactured in the United States of America.
If you haven’t seen the “DSFD” (Double Screw Fold Down) version of this Switchview, you can check it out here.
Our DSFD Switchview throw lever is our definition of simplification. The two-screw design increases adaptability for a more precise fit on various scope brands and models.
We’ve integrated our new “folding” design into these new DSFD levers for several reasons. The main reason is it won’t hang up on stuff! Whether you’re using your rifle for hunting, competition, or work, you’ll find that the new folding design offers many benefits over our fixed levers.
We usually mount the Switchview so the lever folds back towards the rear of the gun. This way it will fold down when you’re stuffing it into a soft case, discarding it into a drop box in a competition or dragging it through the bushes and trees on a hunt. If you want it to be a little “stiffer” you can add a little tension to the screw that holds it in place.
If you want a little longer top or a little shorter top, we have one hole and three hole replacements as well. Check them our on our “lever top” page you can find here. https://www.switchviewusa.com/product-category/lever-top/

I am a total klutz with tools. Following your excellent instructions I had no problems installing the throw lever. It worked perfectly. I am 74 years old and always had trouble adjusting the magnification (necessary to take advantage of my Boone & Crockett redicile). After installation I cranked both ways through the power settings 12-15 times with ease. I would recommend this product to anyone that needs help with power changes.

Ordered a Standard SwitchView lever for one of my VX-6 scopes just to see if I liked it. Placed the order on January 23, 2021 and received the lever a week later. When I opened the box I noticed that I had received the Fold Down version due to the Standard version being out of stock. What a surprise! Lever fits the VX6 scope like a glove and the Fold Down feature is fantastic. Works exactly as advertised. Truly makes it easy to adjust magnification level without a hassle and the fold down feature keeps the lever out of the way when you don’t need it. Liked it so much that I am purchasing additional levers for my other VX6 scopes. Thanks Wyatt!!
