It's rather interesting in how many people will incorrectly post that it's made by tasco.

Also SWFA has their own forum

Right now swfa has a demo b for sale on their sample list.

Re: SWFA scopes

Yep......do something right and no one remembers............Buy something off of someone else who has done wrong and fix it, warranty it, sell it dirt cheap and stand behind it and still............no one forgets.

Re: SWFA scopes

I had a tasco world class plus 10x40x50 $200 scope 10 years ago.
What a miserable piece of junk.
It broke and it took 2 years to get replaced.

I have a SWFA SS20 that looks like the exact same Asian turret knobs as the tasco, but much worse quality than the Tasco.

It is possible that someone might be able to see a target on a very bright day, but the exit pupil is so tiny that the scope is unusable. A 42mm Objective and 20X should make a fine exit pupil, but I believe that lens misalignment has reduced this one to near nothing.

There was one other guy on the internet with the same scope and the same problem.
Other than that, there seems to be a hundred guys on the internet very happy with their SS scopes.

Kenton will do it for you.

Re: SWFA scopes

I have one and as far as clarity goes i love it. Mirage is a problem where i am from but it does well @ 1000 which is as far as ive taken it to date. The only thing i am not thrilled with is the reticle. It takes some getting used to. Other then that it tracks well holds a good zero and the parallax is great. Some have complaints that the turret does not rest on the line during rotation but mine seems fine.
