UPS shows up Friday with a SS 10X fixed I had ordered. I take it out and put it on a AI'd 243 so I could go play some. Mount the gun and WHOA - wtf?  the reticle looks very small to me for a 10X.

I go grab a SS 3x9 that I have for a while, crank it up to 9X and its much larger and easier to see than the 10X. I turn the variable down to 6X and its just about the same size as the 10X!

Either I am f-ing crazy or this is a 6X with 10X marking all over it? 

Has anyone ever heard of this happening? I will contact SWFA on Monday to see what they say. They are great to deal with. This has just really kind of blown me away - LOL

I spoke with the folks at SWFA this morning, I am going to ship it back to them and let them determine what the issue is. Very nice folks to speak with.

Well SWFA took a look at the scope and found that it was within spec. I guess it was just me. At anyrate, the offered to either send it back to me or allow me to trade it in (their trade in value was fair) on another scope of my choice.

I chose to trade it in on a SS 3x9 - I have had one of these for a while and have been very satisfied with it. While I would have rather had a fixed 10X that met my needs, it was good to have bought it from someone who didn't just say to bad so sad!

That's why I will do business with SWFA again in the future.
