Sucks to hear it. are they the mil/mil, MOA/MOA or MOA/mil version? I have several mil/mil in 6x, 10x, 1-4x, 1-6x and 3-9x with no issues, IMHO hands down the best scope for the price. Always heard the mil/mil version had the least problems.I'll break the mold here I guess..
4 years ago I purchased a 10x for my 308. I thought the turrets were total mush. Full of slop and the windage turret has barely noticable detents with no audible sound.
Then after no abuse and under 1000 rounds through the rifle, the (housing?) Under the elevation turret came loose and would spin with the elevation turret, making finding zero impossible. (Bomb proof my ass)
Sent it back to swfa and they sent me a brand new scope.
New one arrived and the turrets were worse than the first. Also with the second one, everytime I took the rifle from the safe the elevation turret would "stick" initially, requiring a good twist to get it to move.
Also to date the worst low light resolution I've ever experienced during last light hunting situations. I've had $200 redfields blow both swfa scopes out of the water regarding light transmission.
Sent the second one back and requested a refund.
Just my limited experience with 2 samples, but enough to turn me off from those scopes for a lifetime.
Your welcome bro, Someone told me that 3 years ago and every year I buy something.This year I would like to get another 1X4 SS.Thanks for posting that. That's about the time I'll be ready to purchase a decent scope for an upcoming build (or buy - RPR?) and I never knew that or thought to wait for that day.
They were both moa models with the mil dot reticle. Based on my experience you very well could be right. Mines a small sample, and alot of people really like these scopes.Sucks to hear it. are they the mil/mil, MOA/MOA or MOA/mil version?
