SWFA is no longer a retailer. On my way to College Station last fall for a game, I did not see any signs on the building where they moved to a few years back. I googled them online. They've moved from a retailer of many product lines to a manufacture of their own Super Sniper product line. I bought a ton of stuff from them over they years. Great customer service! Sorry to see this happen.

Here's a link about what happened.

Distance is not the issue, but the winds can make it interesting!

I wish them great success.

Their line of scopes are a great bang for the buck. I've still got a 5-20HD. It has been put through thr ringer, and never let me down. It looks like a used pair of welding gloves. Not pretty, just built to do the job.

I've also got two 1-6X that have also done a great job. None of those scopes have ever been sent in for repair, even though I treat them like a wrench.

SWFA doesn't manufacture squat......it's a rebranded jap scope made to their specs. They're basically OOB from where I sit.

They may not have a retail storefront but they are still selling their scopes online.

Drove by there a couple of weeks ago in the middle of a week day. No sign of activity. Did they move to a different location?

I have both the 3-15 and 5-20 ffp scopes. Learned how to long distance shoot on both of these and love them both.

Their website has certainly changed. They for sure sold a wide variety of scopes and other items. Now clearly looks like they only deal with their brand of scopes and accessories. I hope they stick around for a while. I doubt I will ever need the warranty, especially after beating up the 3-15 version.


I'm a dude who likes long barrels!

They got into some trouble with the ATF a few years back. Missing or unaccounted for guns.
