Hi, I'm new here and am looking for a replacement for a 6-24X tasco that I recently discovered won't shoot the same place at different magnification settings. 

 

I was looking at high-mag scopes and I noticed something about a 8-32X Swift.  I was unable to get it to focus at anything less than about 75-100 yards, even at the lowest setting.  I was wondering if this is normal for a scope this powerful?

 

Also, is Swift a good scope?

 

thanks.

Swift good-- same catagory as tasco-- good for what?---

It takes a powerful and good tracking scope to be able to descern that the shift in impact is due to the magnification, I can only really tell past 600 yds. At 1000 yds I can dial the bullet "impact" back and forth by increasing and decreasing the magnification. This is because they are second focal plane which gets alot of milage in this forum.  Really good high power scopes will AO down to 25 yds, but that is $1000 plus.

Welcome dlkiller, To answer your questions no and no, If you want to be happy with your purchase look into a Bushnell 4200 series they are the best bang for the buck.

Ehhh, I have a Swift 6-24X50 ...

 

Its nearly as clear as my monarch, and will focus fine on anything 15 yards away or more.  Now on top power, thats a different story, but nearly all high power scopes are like this.  Dont let anyone lie to you.  Unless you are buying tip-top optics, its not going to focus well at top power, at super close ranges.  Its a trade off with high magnification.

 

My monarch focuses worse up close at high power than my Swift does for what its worth.

 

Swift is NOT a bad scope.  It just also, is NOT a S&B ... or Mk4 ... But it definatly is a great buy for the price, and is pretty durable.  My Dad has one he smashed around a few times, hit it hard enough to shoot it to make sure its still sighted in, and it was.  Their ruged, and have a good warrenty.  But since they dont have a high price tag, some people will bash them without ever owning one.
