Seems @Tyler Kemp is making some products that are in need of, for some of us.


Good job Tyler! Maybe a 36mm :unsure:

What a great idea. Not just for old eyes.
Being able to see your turret for just a split second and knowing where it’s set is huge. Awesome job

...and a 35mm please.

Ordered three of these on Saturday. It's been a real pain in the ass while hunting trying to transition from my RF binocs to my cheaters so I can see my turret to dial in dope. These things should be a boon for that.

Like to think I'm aging gracefully, but this steady decay from what was once having perfect vision is driving me ape shit.

I personally don't like the idea of a level on here. Being polymer, I want it to be able to give a bit, and if really loaded from the side be able to move just a tad. But, it's been a popular request so we might do that in the future or offer another model.

Make an aluminum version with a level.

At a certain point, some people don’t want to put 3 different pieces on their optic.

I wonder if at the right angle it will burn a hole in your turret like a magnifying glass on an ant... :D Seriously, this is pretty cool as my presbyopia is definitely hindering me from seeing what my turret reads when I look up with my other eye while maintaining my sight picture. My only thought is that it looks a little big, but I'll wait until I get one to pass judgement on quality and size. Tyler, what is the difference between the regular version and the "pro" version - https://mkmachining.com/product/pro-series-turret-magnifier/?mc_cid=ec72194e95&mc_eid=cb4f4d570a

Sent you a PM

May do a milled version. My worry is crimping a scope tube if it's beefy and someone snags it on a barricade. Or, it's not beefy and the part breaks and replacing it puts me in the red. If that makes sense? A hinge may be required for that.

The standard vs Pro Series is all surface finish. The Pro Series is made on a different style machine that uses a very fine nylon powder rather than a continuous strand of melted nylon. One looks printed, one is printed but looks molded!

That is a great idea. I hope you sell a ton. Plus they will make useful gag gifts for some of my long in the tooth shooting partners.

After cataract surgery, I can see amazingly well at distance. I can't see $#!^ a foot or two away without readers.

So I'm at a match today, coming off a stage squealing about having to come so far out of the rifle to be able to see turret enough to dial (500 yards --> 1000 yards a bit much for holdover....). Time for big-bucks bifocal lenses for my shooting glasses, I grumped to my buddy.

The gentleman who shot before me said hey, check this out... and showed us his MK Machining Turret Magnifier. Choir sounds. I gotta get one of these.

We did discuss how nice it would be to have a somewhat "universal" mount. In order to see the turret optimally, K. needed to mount the magnifier back near the ocular with a cable tie. Not the most secure, but functional.

I'll be in touch...
