What's the good and bad on them. Thinking bout trading for a rifle that has one on it..... It's a 3-15x42

This is just my opinion, but I think of it as a poor mans swaro. I dont have either scope as I can only afford nikons, but have shot rifles that have had both. And the swfa is a good scope, but not a great scope.

I have a 5-20 HD that I'll never sell. It looks like hell, now, after years of heavy use, but it never let's me down. Good glass, good reticle, good turrets. The 3-15 is also a good scope, but the glass is not of their "HD" line, and I can tell when I look through one. It may work just great for you though. SWFA has a no BS warranty. You break it, they'll make it right.

I've told Skylar they need to make a 3-15 with HD glass, but does he listen to me? Noooooo.... peep

Have not used the variables, so cannot comment on those.

The SWFA SS fixed power scopes are a fantastic value.

Clear and reliable.

Skylar,

Any way to lose the post at the 12 o'clock position on the MilQuad and MOA Quad reticles?

It serves no purpose and blocks the view.

Perhaps. We patented that reticle the way it it. The bars draw your eye to the center and do not obscure the FOV when shooting longer distances.

I will run this idea by the product engineer though.

I have their 3-9x? FF mil/mil, and love the scope. The SS scopes I've played with were pretty good for the money. I like them.

As much as I can not stand swfa, I have had bad experiences with them

I will say if you can, wait until Black Friday as they do a big sale

I like their scopes. IMHO, you get a lot for the money.

I've got 3 of the 3-15, the HD 3-9 and the HD 1-6. I clearly like them.

I had a 16x fixed and 3-15x42. Both were excellent and well worth their cost.
