    do you hate your stiff parallax control?
    do you hate it has no grip?
    do you hate its near unusable when wet or cold?

    well look what you have come your way SOON! from the maker of the ADDMount
    AADMOUNT 20 MOA PRECISION AR SCOPE MOUNT

    it will be priced low enough that even the DIY guy with the rubber inter tube on his will want one..
    Price tag TBA, but it will be EXTREMELY reasonable, and im a cheap bastard!

    i was given the opportunity to test and review this, and it is FANTASTIC.. its stiff to get on, but locks on and wont come loose or slip.
    its modeled to match the groves on the existing ring and has a cutout to see your yardage numbers.
    its textured to give a good grip even when wet or if you have gloves on.
    and its paintable if you need to.

    if you want to be on the last to get these ASAP, i suggest emailing Jon on the link for his page.

    +1 on a different optic.....lol

    30 bucks for an injection moulded synthetic rubber ring is not cheap in my book. A couple correctly sized 'O' rings to fit snug on the adjustment turrret would be cheap.

    ......bet the per unit cost, all in is about 25 cents.

    I'm kind of wondering what the blue thing with the knob attached to it back by the eyepiece.? Looks like an afterthought of some sort????... or is that so you can adjust the magnification? Looks cumbersome and tacky.

    Actually, considering the price, it's not a bad idea. I know Vortek wants an arm, leg and finger for theirs.

    So, who makes the SWFA scope? We know thery don't. They don't make anything. Is it a rebadged Hawke or maybe a BSA or it can't be a Leupold but it might be a Nikon because Nikon's have miserable adjusters.

    Gonna get some of those thingies and give 'em a try. No not the rubber ducky parallelax cover, the mag lever thingie.

    SWFA says they're made factory direct for them- no middle men. Jap glass & robust construction without a marketing budget. I love mine. The parallax is stiff, but I like that- it doesn't "self-adjust" in the pack. The SWFA scopes I've had have been tough, accurate, and seem to like being rode hard & put away wet.

    I've tried the coasters on a few scopes. "60% of the time it works all the time..." If your power ring is anything but cylindrical, it might not stay on (falcons, some vortex's, etc that have power rings that taper or are rounded). Hard to resist given the price though- they do work great on the scopes they fit.
