I run a premier 3-15 and absolutely love it but it's not overly compact and far from budget friendly.


yeah, my brother has one, great scope

Skylar knows. I've told him that no less than 5 times. He shared the "want" with the engineering group. That's all he can do.


When was the last time they released a new scope??


It's been several years.

Iíve heard SWFA is working on some new stuff.

They would sell out if they could modernize their lineup with a 5-25 and 3-15 with HD glass and good reticle options. They donít need to change anything else IMHO.

I'd buy a 3-15X in HD glass, immediately.

I'm really liking my sig Tango 4 4-16x44 for gen ii pst money except when it is really sunny. Also a rock solid choice is the weaver 3-15x50 ffp tac model with emdr reticle it's proved itself to me and glass is very good not just good (subjective) can be had for 599 on Natchez. It's probably one of the best scopes in the $1100 less category. Built 100% by Low in Japan. A bit of a jump in price is the bushy 3.5-21 dmr II. I just got it and compared it to my Steiner T5 5-25 and MK 6 3-18. Not quite apples to apples but this weekend I preferrred the bushy. The turrets on the T5 are probably some of the best of any scope in any price range. Just my 2 cents

The SWFA SS line may not have all the latest features but they have earned a great reputation for reliability and precision. They are an absolute steal when you get them on a Black Friday for Tax Day sale.

$1000-1300

Bushnell LHRS

SWFA 5-20 HD

Iíd say for hunting the Bushnell 3-12 has the advantage with the lower magnification available and good glass. They havenít upgraded the 5-20 HD in years for a reason. At its price point I donít think it can be beat for the tough SOB it is that tracks perfect every time with good glass.

Bushnell LRHS line has been discontinued. However, GA Precision is taking pre-orders on probably the last batch of 4.5-18x44 LRHS being made for $750.

They still make the LRTS which is almost identical. But $750 is awesome!

It's a steal, and to top it off it's the LRHSi (illuminated) version.

Note that they will charge your card when you order, but not expected to ship until July.
