SWFA scopes

Has anyone here used a SWFA Super Sniper 5-20x50 scope? What are your opinions of this scope and do you like and recommend it for long range shooting out to 1200 yards.

Re: SWFA scopes

Hello Tom, I think the more I read about this scope the more I like it. There are some good write ups about this scope on this website. I think my next scope is going to one of these. I'm going to put it on my 300 Weatherby. If it does well then im going to move it to my Bohica 50 DTC. If it doesn't die from the Bohica then it a good scope. LOL. I'll let you know when it arrives. Until then happy shooting. Oh by the way you have had 166 views to your thread.

Re: SWFA scopes

I have one but havent really put it threw the paces yet.Glass compares with my mark 4 and it has a wider field of view on said power,which I like.I also like the 10 mil per rev.clicks arent as solid as my mark4,maybe because 10 per.

@ sp6x6- yeah so far every page that Iíve gone to where people are chatting about this scope they are saying the glass is bright and is comparable to several of the high end scopes. What I haven't been able to find yet is if they will etch the turrets to my bullet data.

Re: SWFA scopes

You could probably have a jeweler etch them for a small fee.I etched my own on my mark 4 with my foredom.

Re: SWFA scopes

@sp6x6- How do you do that when there are already lines and numbers etched on them. Or are you saying to order them blank?
