SWFA SS 16x42 Mil-Quad Reticle

Got my new scope in today. it looks SWEET. feels very sturdy. the clicks feel very nice. numbers are on from topped out to bottomed out. I have not got a chance to shoot with it yet. but the glass is very clear.

I will be posting more in this thread about thoughts after shooting with it.

Until then. here are a few pic, the picture threw the scope does not do it justice. all pictures taken with my phone

The Robin looks like he knows there is no gun attached. Not worried at all. :)


Very nice.

I've got a standard 10x42 with a mildot reticle. How do you like the mil-quad? They're great scopes, by the way. I have mine on a .17HMR and it's pretty much perfect, tracking is absolutely dead on so I can dial in shots wherever I need them and not worry about getting back to zero at 100yds. I would have got a 12x or 16x, but from what I read they were significantly less clear/bright than the 10x.

I just got back from shooting with it. its SWEET! zeroed at 25 yards. did some test. shoot, dial a mil shoot dial a mil ect. up to 10 mil and each hole lined up perfectly with the mil dots (diamonds) then took it out to 215 yards. 7.8 mil and a 1.5 for wind. its really nice being able to see your miss, measure with crosshairs then dial and hit! over all im very happy with it

I want to get some shorter rings but not sure how low i should go with how close the bolt already is...

Got to do some more serious shooting, gathering dope for this coming weekends shoot. I tell you what i REALLLLLLY like this scope. its so sweet to shoot a group at a distance you haven't shot at before, measure the difference in elevation with the reticle and add it the turret then right it down.

And as far as it being 16x i could see my holes in paper at 200 yards. and shooting off hand at 25 yards wasn't to bad.

oh and the glass.... imo i think its great for the money. more then what you pay for!

Will the Klinsky adjust enough to use the rings you already have or do you just want lower rings?

You do a lot of long-range .22 shooting, right? I'd say that scope would be just about perfect for that role. Thanks for the review.

How much elevation adjustment does it have, and how many yards out does that get you with your dope?

viking499, i need to get longer screws and build another spacer for proper hight for shooting prone. I will probly just run these rings. i dont want the bolt hitting the scope and at 50 bucks a whack for rings i think ill just spend a few bucks on longer screws.

henschman, Yes i do alot of long range shooting. I have not yet tried to shoot out past 200 yards with it yet. shooting 200 yards is one rev of the turret and i think i have 4 or 5 left lol

My 10x SWFA SS has 156MOA total adjustment range, top to bottom.

Cool, be sure to tell us how it works when you take it out to some longer ranges too.

I just mounted a Super Sniper 10x to my new Savage FV-SR. Will get it to the range this weekend.
