Smith & Wesson scopes

Anyone owned or looked through one of these. How is quality? I am looking at 4-18 mil-dot model and would like to know if true mil is on 18 power.

Re: Smith & Wesson scopes

I have the same question. A local gun shop has a new S&W 6-24 for $219, which is a lot less than the MSRP of $619.95. I'd like to know who the real manufacturer of this scope is.

Hi,
We no longer sell the optics. They still have the warranty on them. Keep your
sales receipt for the proof of purchase. You would contact us if there is a problem.

Re: Smith & Wesson scopes

I just bought the last S&W 6-24x42 scope my dealer had. S&W did discontinue it and it was made for them by Nikon. It's a beauty and looks to be a bargain for $219.00.

Re: Smith & Wesson scopes

o.k. I broke down and also bought one from CDNN. It's the 6-24x42. Good deal for only $200 (retail is $619). I would say it is about on the par with Leupold VX3 or Bushnell 4200 level. Scope is quite heavy at 20oz. Optics are fully multi-coated, bright, sharp and clear. Comes with finger adjustable low profile turrets and 1/4 MOA clicks. Scope is made in Japan.
