The monoloc has shortcommings, One is that the small end requires a bushing of some sort to grip the obj of the 14 -- I didn't have one so I used electrical tape which works but it isn't as stable as an aluminum bushing would be. <it's like a millimeter of material around the OBJ that's needed or less.
The other is that the clamps can on some scopes allow light to enter casting a glowing shadow on the 14's lense-- another problem I solved with tape. < I don't have that issue with US Optics occulars as they are the perfect size and don't need tape or a bushing.
The product works all right but sometimes if I didn't clamp it just right I could see a few degrees of cant and wondered sometimes if that could throw a shot off though I didn't have time to range test and check the effect of canted mounting. It probably isn't really an issue but it played with my head anyway as could be expected.
Thanks for the review of the mono.... I think your L-Bracket idea has merit and I would like to explore the possibilities. I do know that most throw levers (especially the likes of ARMS) are patent protected so doing a design one has to really think it through, making sure no patent infringements are inadvertently done.
Edited to add: IF a thrwo lever it intrduce one also has to look at good price hike of over $220 bones.
Still have to weigh all the options, if it's really worth it.
