SWFA SSHD's 5-20x50 ***SOLD***

Just in case you folks don't know about these: they are first focal plane, mil/mil, 10 mils per revolution. The scopes are absolutely rugged and these track true. I have two for sale, one is illuminated ($1250) and the other is non-illuminated ($1150). They both have the flip up scope caps on them. The scopes have been mounted, but are in like new condition. The boxes and other documents that came with them are included.

ETA - the illuminated will come with Burris XTR's in medium; the non-illuminated will come with Warne Maxima's in low.

I will post some pics this evening when I arrive home from work. I don't have feedback on this forum, but I do on the Hide and ar15.com (same screen name).

bump...

I haven't forgot about pics, but it's difficult to take them when you can't find the camera!!

Also, the illuminated reticle has a Vortex bubble level that it comes with.

Re: SWFA SSHD's 5-20x50

Which reticle do the have, mil-quad?

They ARE very nice scopes indeed. Curious why you are selling them.

Re: SWFA SSHD's 5-20x50

thanks for the bumps, guys.

Honestly, I had just put a post up on the Hide about a week ago on how much I love my SSHD's, and I would not get rid of them unless I had the cash to get into some type of "top tier" scope (S&B, Kahles, March, etc...) Both of my scopes have performed 100% flawlessly, and the glass is great. The only reason I am selling them, is because I received a great deal (too good to pass on) on two Razors.

I was shooting a competition with the non-illuminated on my .223. My partner was shooting his 5.5-25 Nightforce. At 200 yards, with both scopes on 10x, with the SS, we could resolve the bullet holes. Neither he nor I could resolve them with the NF.

Also, these scopes do have the mil-quad reticle.

Makes sense. Curious what specifically you like better about the Razor's. I would guess the zero stops and the reticle. The rest is pretty much a wash at least in my experience.

Re: SWFA SSHD's 5-20x50

yes, Scott, the ZS, 35mm tube and EBR 2B are the biggest draws, for me, at least.

The weather here in Boise is that "almost going to snow" grayish look. I was looking at various objects through one of the SS's and comparing it with one of the Razors...I have to admit, my eyes could not tell much, if any, difference between the glass in both. The eyebox on the SS's is uber forgiving too.

Folks denigrate the mil-quad reticle because of the diamonds. I don't think those folks even took the time to try to understand how that particular reticle works. When it is studied, and the reticle's subtensions are understood, those diamonds create excellent points of aim.

I feel like I am talking myself into keeping them...
