    Anybody have any experience with these? They seem legit but I can't recall ever hearing the name before tonight. The price seems too good to be true.

    Very good scopes. They don't have all the bells and whistles of the big name "tactical" scope companies but they are robust and have decent glass.

    I have two SWFA 12X-42 scopes. They are great for my long range field/match shooting.

    If their scopes are as good as their customer service when selling other brands, I would not hesitate to give them a try. They carry a special off-listed Leupold for my GSR, and their service was very good.

    excellent scopes for the money. the glass is nice and the features set is great if it suits your needs. i've had good experience with there service as well, and wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again.

    I am currently trying to sell mine, a 3-9x42mm. That said, if I had a need for that much magnification, I would buy it again without thought. These are very good basic scopes. As mentioned, they are not "tacti-flashy", but they just plain work. If your rifle ever goes down, I am pretty sure you could just club someone with these, mount it again, and still be within 2moa of your target.

    Yes I am selling, but just because I do not have a need for it. ($425 shipped if your interested).

    Virtually everything I've read about them, going back years, has been very positive. I don't own one, but they've been among the contenders during a couple of my scope buys.

    I like mine with one exception. The SS 10x42mm I had wouldn't hold zero. I assumed it was my shooting for the longest time, but I sent an email to their customer support. A week after sending my old scope in I had a new one on my door step (this time a 6x). I haven't tested it out yet but it has replaced the Millett 4-16x50mm scope that was on my rifle before.

    I bought their new 3-15x42 a couple of months ago and I like it so far. It's a beast of a scope, and side by side, I'd say the glass is better than my Weaver Super Slam.

    I have an SWFA 1-6 X 24 in a Bobro QD mount on a Noveske Recon. Although the scope is a bit heavy at 22.4 oz it's built like a tank with very nice glass, a well thought out FFP reticle, bright illumination that's visible in all but the brightest daylight and turrets that are user switchable between covered and exposed style. The clicks are crisp and consistent.

    I'd not hesitate to buy from them again.

    I love their scopes. I can't say they are my favorite company in the world,
    but their scopes are excellent quality. I currently have a 1-6 from them and a 3-9x42 and I love them. They have decent (not great, but decent) glass, track reliably, are super durable, all for a cheap price. I previously had a 5-20 as well, but I ended up selling that one. IMO the are one of the best buys in the scope world out there if you need a reliable scope that tracks well. I'd not hesitate to buy another one.

    I have a SWFA 16x42 that has been on everything from my CZ 452 to make 300 yards shots on juice containers, to my 7mm Rem Mag that I make first-round hits at 650 yards with on 7" by 10" steel plates.

    Very good scopes for the money. Their 10x with the fancy mil reticle and turrets is what I plan to buy for my next rifle build.
