So I finally received this beauty of a scope. BUT! I noticed when looking through the scope (completely straight through the middle), that the reticle appears to be slightly shifted to the left.

It's not a HUGE shift, but it is noticeable when I zoom to 6x from where the ring just barely starts to go out of the sight picture. There's a tiny gap on the right side while the left is perfectly flush.

Anybody else have this issue? Or should I have SWFA repair it because the reticle is supposed to be perfectly center?

Thanks.

Your best bet is going to be to call SWFA customer service.

Post a picture of the issue, if you can.  It might be something we can address with just a quick look at the setup.


I do not understand the issue as explained.

This is basically what I'm getting. The actual gap is a little less than this "picture", but it gives you the basic idea of what is going on.

SWFA will fix it for you.

I have seen things like this on FFP scopes and usually this has no effect on functionality, but looks funky.

This is likely due to a slight misalignment of the reticle cell.
