Saw this and thought two things
A) that is a great price for the scope. Despite my feelings on the company that is a deal

B) they are discounted?? Didnít see anything on the retail pages


Anyone have info?

Not trying to be rude ugly, only asking because I do not know. Is what is following A) an question or a statement?
Despite your feelings? What happened?


Everything on the SampleList is considered used inventory, made up of trade ins/refurbished, dealer samples, show displays, ect....
This means the inventory is limited and discontinued. Once it's gone, it's gone.
The five to twenty isn't going to be discontinued any time soon, and the Samplelist models will still include the 4-Ever Warranty.

Interesting note to add as I would assume everything on the sample list is limited in quantities. I think 900 for that scope is good deal...


In regards to why I donít like your company you shipped my scope (same scope ironically) to the wrong address and refused to do anything about it as you didnít want to be out a scope but it was okay for me to be out one

Always making stuff so complicated. I guess the next thing you'll tell me is there's a difference between MILS and MOA.... confused2 They both look like a bunch of hashmarks to me loco

It's been through the ringer. But I need an additional scope in the mix, only have 3, can't decide which one to add.

The Leupold Mark 5HD is intriguing if you can stand their reticles. I'm not a Leupold guy at all, and I don't like their reticles anyway, so it's out for me. But it does seem to be good glass quality and features for the price.

The SWFA 5-20 HD illuminated model for $899 is stupidly cheap for the glass quality and build quality. I really love my non-illuminated model, and I paid more than $899 even heavily discounted. Made it to 1,100 yards with it without any real problems.

I think most, if not all, of the sample list pages say the product is discontinued because SWFA isn't actively producing used scopes. I don't see the 5-20 HD going anywhere anytime soon. I think they sell a decent number of them because they're a very good value.

If mine had a better reticle, I'd never look for anything else, ever. I just want something thinner. On small targets, the .05 mil lines cover up too much IMHO and make precise aiming just a tad more difficult than I'd like compared to more modern reticles. But that's a pretty small complaint. It works great, it's easy to look through, has great glass, and tracks perfectly.

Skylar - if you guys are taking suggestions, either update the 5-20 or make a new 6-24 HD with a NF Mil-C, Minox MR4, Kahles SKMR/SKMR3, Burris/Steiner SCR, etc. You wouldn't be able to keep them in stock if it had decent turrets, zero stop, and glass equal to the current HD glass.

Scott, why are you hiding?
Leupold makes a good scope.

.02 or .03 thick for the first Mil out of center. Leave the rest as-is.

Reason being, at 5X, hunting, that center is going to be very thin, and difficult to aquire to put on an animal. If the reticle beyond 1.0 Mil was the .05 it is now, it would still be easy to find center.

Agree on all counts. Thin for a mil, back to .05 after that. The mil quad works fine. I just need a thinner center for precision work when I'm dialed up near max mag.

Hmm, I'll pass that along. Perhaps it is something they will entertain.
