Leupold MKAR Throw Lever

Upgrade your Leupold optic with our Leupold MKAR Throw Lever, speeding up magnification changes and target engagements without breaking the bank. Throw levers are especially useful in a number of different scenarios including but not limited to precision shooting competitions and cold weather hunting.  Our standard polymer Throw Levers are printed using one of our industrial oriented 3D printers. . Our levers are proudly printed in the USA from a custom made durable Nylon 6 material, and feature a metal thread insert for increased strength when tightening. Easily installs in a minute or less. Nylon 6 does not have the tensile strength of aluminum, but is extremely durable and will flex and yield under hard impact rather than damaging or marking your optic. This feature can be useful in a number of situations including shooting competitions and hunting when a throw lever may snag. Our levers feature a lifetime warranty.


Fits Leupold MKAR Optics.

Available in the following materials:

Black Nylon

FDE Glass Fiber Nylon

Carbon Fiber Nylon

More Information About FDM Printing.

Fused deposition modeling (FDM), or called filament freeform fabrication, is a 3D printing process that uses a continuous filament of a thermoplastic material. Filament is fed from a large spool through a moving, heated printer extruder head, and is deposited on the growing work. The print head is moved under computer control to define the printed shape. Usually the head moves in two dimensions to deposit one horizontal plane, or layer, at a time; the work or the print head is then moved vertically by a small amount to begin a new layer.

    My review is going to be limited as I do not have a match scheduled in which I will be using this particular rifle and scope for several months. I will be shooting others soon, but not this one. However I have fitted up the MK throw lever.

    I did opt for the fiber reinforced upgrade lever.

    First, I started to mount the lever and stopped. I was in fear of breaking it flexing it to fit over the eyepiece. I looked carefully to see if there was some other way and came to the conclusion it has to go on this way, and sure enough, the lever will flex enough to fit over the eyepiece. It takes a fair amount of force, but it will go. I did not use an “L” shaped Allen wrench to tighten the clamping screw. I used a small 3/32″ hex screwdriver used for precision work. It is obvious the clamping screw cannot be tightened down willy nilly, and it does not need to be. Snugged up the lever clamps down on the magnification ring without play. I don’t doubt I could whack the lever hard enough to knock it off the magnification ring, but I would not want to subject the ring to that kind of force, and it would be abuse, not normal reasonable use.

    The lever is on the long side, but that is a matter of personal taste. I would have liked it better if it were say 1/2″ shorter, but that is just me. It is not enough to cause me the bother of cutting it. Others may think it is just right. Being plastic it has to be made dimensionally thicker than a metal lever. The length is proportional to the other dimensions.

    I would buy this product again, and I would again opt for the upgraded version.

    This lever looks plasticky and cheap, and that’s what it is: made of plastic and inexpensive, both of which I appreciate. Inexpensive is very nice when compared to what I’ve paid for other throw levers, and its plastic construction is good for three reasons. I don’t have to worry about the plastic marring my scope, it can be tightened down for a firm nonslip grip on the magnification ring, and it’s easy to modify. The last was something I appreciated because the lever itself is unnecessarily large for my slim rimfire scopes. I used an X-ACTO razor saw to shorten the lever and a little careful work with a small torch melted and smoothed the resulting sharp edges. A good product that does what it’s intended to do which is to make adjusting my scopes’ magnifications much easier.
