    WHAT THE....

    Why does the name Rube Goldberg come to mind as I view this scope?

    Could this be another cure for a problem that doesn't exist? I do not read German so I may be way off but this doesn't appeal to me at all. I'll stand corrected if proven wrong.

    Actually I get it. It is not easy to adjust your zoom and keep your eye on the prize if the zoom bell is in front of your aiming eye. It just moves the adjustment forward so you can keep your eye relief and keep your eye on the ball.

    That's not German, maybe Swiss or Possibly Afrikan. If it was German I could make some sense out of it, but this might as well be moon language.

    Translation from Swedish: "Is a device mounted on your rifle scope whose mission is to quickly and easily adjust the zoom on your riflescope, without having to drop one of his hands from the weapon.

    Zoom adjusted with the front hand thumb. This means that the hunt will be both enjoyable and safer.

    Most hunters are certainly more than once ended up in situations where you had to quickly zoom in or out, which means that you must release one hand from the weapon, thereby potentially missing out on a good location.

    The zoom function is to get closer to wildlife and have a safer game, then Pearson's Smart Zoom enhancement that will make you use the riflescope in a whole new way than before."

    Thanks Jerm, I knew it wasn't German and come to think of it Swiss is pretty close to pure German. But I had no clue about Swedish except when one of them is speaking English.

    Snake, you kill me. "Swiss language"? You're as bad as Adolph Obama with his "Austrian language." There are 4 official languages in Switzerland: German, French, Italian and Romansh. I can read and understand the first 3, the last one, not at all.

    So the German language is pretty close to pure German?

    I recall a similar, much more compact idea I saw a few years back - a collar that fit around the adjustment ring with a couple of arms that extended back along the ocular bell. Did the same thing in much less space, you could pretty much shift your trigger finger or the thumb of the shooting hand to turn your power adjustment ring.

    Now, I guess they have these "cat tail" deals, seems like a much simpler way to do nearly the same thing. I know I'd probably prefer to keep my support hand stable on the fore-end of the rifle if I were trying to zoom with the scope centered on target... http://www.mgmswitchview.com/products.htm
