Nope and nope.  We are working on a high powered variable but it is still over a year out.

Chris

I've heard that the Super Sniper line of scopes is now owned by SWFA. Is this true?

 

Could you discuss the warranty and how these scopes are different from the Tasco scopes.

 

Where and who manufactures these scopes or is that privite information?

 

Thanks

Dave

We do own the world wide exclusive rights to the Super Sniper scopes.  Bushnell imports and warranties them for us.  The warranty is lifetime. 

 

Here is a brief run down I copied from an earlier post here that covers some misinformation and frequently asked SS questions.

A few years back when tasco was sinking they still had control and a bad batch did reach market. The problems were all related to improper assembly and easily rectified once they were identified. When we took over we sent examples of every complaint we had seen to the factory with detailed instructions about the problems. They identified every single issue and we were able to rectify them all by simply having the factory assemblers properly trained on how to assemble these scopes. Being mil spec the tolerances are much tighter than a normal scope and certain parts have to be assembled in a specific order.

There is only one original true Super Sniper scope. Don't be fooled by fraudulent dealers passing Hakko MP scopes as Super Snipers. Hakko will be glad to let anyone know that e-mails them that they have never had anything to do with Super Sniper scopes. Bushnell/Tasco can also confirm the fact that only one factory has ever been used and the scopes have never changed.

The real SS scopes are built to the same NATO specs required by a U.S. Navy contract.

Originally the scopes were marketed by tasco sports optics to the U.S. Navy. Tasco never offered these for sale to the public and has since been bought out by Bushnell Performance Optics, Inc. SWFA, Inc. now has the exclusive world wide rights to the Super Sniper scopes and the Super Sniper name. The success of these scopes has spawned copies and a lot of misinformation. If you have any questions as to the authenticity of a Super Sniper scope call or e-mail us. If you see anyone selling scopes claiming to be Super Sniper scopes that don't look like the ones at SuperSniper.com e-mail us with the companies name and as much information as you can provide.

Known fraudulent dealer:
Andy Hooker
Hooker Optics
Tyler, Texas
(Mainly sells on online auction sites like eBay, Gunbroker, AuctionArms, etc.)
