They're being made and should be available in a few weeks:

Some people have been making the 1-4 lever work, but we wanted something better to offer. The 5-20 is thinner, not as tall, and only has one point attachment.

When we get them in house I’ll check it. There's a slight difference in the magnification rings that may cause enough of a problem.

Thanks Brady.
I like my switchview for what it does, but when the rifle is slung (assault style) I fear it will snag on my gear and something may break or get poked. A slightly shorter tail would help.

What do you mean when you say destroying the scope? Aesthetics or that it actually break something?

I've read that the glass sometimes gets loose or that the tube will actually bend from the banging.Hoping that this is not the truth it's a great idea especially being the mag ring is a little on the tight side.I read about this on sites where guys are doing 3 gun shoots,where they need to change their sight pictures very quickly!
 
As soon as I get a responce from SWFA  on this matter I will be the first to order one,as I have arthritis in both my hands so this ring be be a great addition to an already great scope.

Count me in for one of these whenever they get here, Brady.

My primary interest in the cattail for this scope is not so much about speed as it is about being able to easily tweak magnification without changing anything in my shooting position.
