Jyrki Partanen from Finland is the owner and founder of Nyrkkipaja Partanen.
Now, you’re never going to remember that, but if I tell you he runs a webshop called “Throwlevers.com” I bet you know what this is about?
He started the business in 2016 and run it as a hobby, described as “Affordable accessories for your boomstick“.
Originally he made his throw levers for the members of a Finnish shooting internet forum. The first lever model was for the Meopta R1/ZD/Meopro series
The Meopta R1 1-4×22 RD K-Dot are some of the most popular scope models in IPSC and SRA, at least in Finland. SRA is the Finnish Reservist Shooting.

You would think that they were made from 3D Printing, but actually all of these throw levers are milled from POM-C.
A threaded steel insert and an M3 screw are used for mounting the lever in place. A minimum clearance of 7.6 mm is required under the magnification ring. This could be an issue with very low scope rings and some one piece scope mounts. Please measure your clearance. Hint: 8 mm drill bit or allen key makes an easy gauge for measuring your clearance.
Currently levers are available for the following rifle scopes:
- Leica Magnus
- Meopta R1, ZD and Meopro
- Meopta R2
- Steiner Nighthunter Xtreme
- Swarovski Z6(i) and Z8i
- Vortex PST and HST
- Vortex Razor HD II
- Zeiss Conquest V6
- Zeiss Victory V8
They all seem to cost 25 Euros each, which is affordable for a throw lever.
Orders are made to order and usually mailed out within 4-5 days on weekdays.
The shipping cost is flat rate 2.50 € to anywhere in the world – very generous in a World where I think shipping costs are killing a lot of my “needs” from eBay for instance.
