The inside of these levers are bare flat, smooth metal without a finish, while the outside is finished in a black anodized coating.

Now I just ordered one of the PA 1-8x24 scopes so I came back to revisit this thread and see how they are working. While reading the prior comments that I have missed I noticed that there is now a Gen II version of this throw lever. So I have to ask if there was a problem with the old version that I bought and haven't even used yet?
Hey Seaweed

The issue with Version I levers is that they did not fit the newly released gen 3 primary arms 1-6 scopes and the gen 2 1-8 scopes. The bumps on the inside of the levers were slightly off on the new scopes and wouldn't allow the levers to fully engage. In order to make the levers work i turned the inside and removed the bumps. The large lug and the fit of the lever still gave a positive engagement.

The Version II lever now only have 2 internal bumps and fit all the primary arms 1-6 and 1-8 scopes.
