I have a 1-4, and 2.5-10 now, I'm considering consolidating to one scope for all around use on my ARs. The SS 1-6 seems like it'd be pretty versatile.

Anyone running of these?

I like having multiples that I can move around for different jobs.

I have the same two scope ranges and like having both, plus a 3x-15x to boot.

I'm running the Swfa SS 1-6x24 on my Seekins AR and really like it, especially the fine subtensions. I also just got my Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6 on a 6.8 and like it as well. The subtensions are not as precise but I was consistently banging steel 600.

From the reviews I've seen, the reticle is well liked.

It's pretty heavy, I assume due to its construction, so I'm sure it's bombproof.

The vx6 1-6 is attractive also, due to it being lightweight and compact, but would be less useful for mid range work.

Please spill the beans on where you got a Strike Eagle, I called my Vortex rep and he said they haven't been shipped yet

I pre-ordered when they were first announced earlier this year. I think they have a real winner with this one and will buy another when available. The subtensions are not as fine as the SWFA 1-6 but it worked good enough to bang steel at 600 with my 6.8.
