These are a heavy duty, Milspec type switch as one would expect from the Miltac SAIA stable.
The body of the switch is sealed and completely encased, the roller mechanism is superbly engineered, the Nylon roller if struck from one side depresses the actuator button, if struck from the other it is not ie. if one imagines a pendulum swinging over the switch the forward swing would operate it the backward would not, I have tried to demonstrate this in the photographs.
They came to us as part of a lot of surplus stock from a large ‘Milspec’ type Co. They are brand new and still stored in original boxes, however as they have been in storage for some time we have classified them as ‘new other’.
