First Look: The Antimatter Industries Scopeswitch

Gun News

Antimatter Industries has just announced the Scopeswitch, an interesting new accessory that allows you to adjust your scope’s zoom via a slider on the handguard.

In an industry where innovation is typically incremental and often predictable, creative ideas are always appreciated. The most recent of these is from Antimatter Industries and the system is called the Scopeswitch.

In a nutshell, the Scopeswitch is an accessory that allows its user to adjust their scope’s magnification level without ever taking their support hand off the handguard. It does this through a combination of an optics mount, a rail-mounted handguard slider and a cable system. When installed and configured, the Scopeswitch links an optic’s zoom control to the slider on the handguard, enabling the user to adjust magnification simply by moving the slider forward or back with their support hand. Antimatter Industries notes that this system works best with scopes that have easy-to-twist zooms.


The optic mount portion of the Scopeswitch is made out of 7075 T6 aircraft-grade aluminum and 4140 nitrided steel lugs, and the optical centerline height is 1.93 inches. The entire unit adds about 10 ounces of weight to a rifle setup. Antimatter Industries claims that the Scopeswitch is compatible with a wide variety of LPVO scopes and should work with any rifle that has at least 10.5 inches of barrel length and 11.5 inches of Picatinny rail space. The company also says that the accessory is fully ambidextrous, can have the direction of its slider reversed and will work equally well with FFP and SFP scopes. The company also warns, however, that it is difficult to install and may require the help of a gunsmith.


Antimatter Industries says that the primary advantage of the Scopeswitch is that it allows users to retain their standard C-clamp shooting grip while operating it. Because it only requires moving one’s support hand, it enables rapid magnification adjustment without ever losing a sight picture, making it possible to even shoot while zooming in or out. It’s a novel concept, and it will be interesting to see how it catches on in competition shooting, hunting and tactical shooting circles. The Scopeswitch is initially only available with a 30mm mount, but 34mm mounts will be available soon as well. MSRP starts at $599 and you can currently sign up to be notified once they come in stock.
