I ordered a Vortex 4x14x44 HS-T and when it arrived it had a very stiff power ring. I really like the scope and looked into buying the throw lever Vortex sells for it (Vortex SV-2 Switchview Throwlever) but the best price I could find was for $59.00 plus shipping – which I feel I shouldn’t have to buy just to be able to turn the power ring when I have cold hands. I’ve heard some Vortex scopes have this issue, so I assume it’ll be within their specs but I’ve got 68 year old hands that aren’t getting any stronger.

Has anyone found any less expensive alternatives?

maybe it just needs to be worked a little?? Ive ran into this issue before with various manufacturers scopes, usually it was just stiff because it was brand new..

I agree with Pyro, just work it a for a while and see if it loosens at all. If it doesn't, Vortex will take care of it.
