If you do can you chime in or pm me. I'm speaking of the 30 mm tube PHs.
I have a 1.5-6X42 PH (from SWFA
) mounted on a Sako 75 in .308.
It was my first scope and I compared it at a local store side by side to the Zeiss, Nikon, and Leupolds of the time.
To my eye the Swaro was slightly clearer than the Zeiss, better than the Nikons, and Leupold wasn't even in the ballpark with it. If I was assigning a 1-10 number scale to that comparison with 10 being the highest it would be:
Remember, that was more than 10 years ago, and it was how they looked to my eyes (your mileage may vary).
There are more manufacturers producing much better glass now, so the field is more competative. That, and the way their prices have skyrocketed have me looking at other options for new toys.
P.S. The springloaded eyepiece is a great feature also.
