The jury is still out on quality of the Millet, but it has a lot of nice features for a relatively low price. I am not familiar with Millet customer service. Swift is very hard to beat in that department. Optically, I found the Millet to be in the same ballpark as the Swift. Millet has a very interesting custom mil-dot reticle...takes a little getting used to, but I liked it. There are half-mil lines which help with rangefinding. Swift is a real value, and has a couple of good mil-dot scopes. Setting up a tactical-type .223, I would probably choose the Millet over the Swift. That said, I have a Swift Premier (hunting version, not tactical) that I really like, I have only used a Millet. Both the windage and elevation knobs were, for my preferences, a little stiff, but not too bad. I don't know if that is a problem for long term usage. The one I used belongs to a friend and he never uses any of the features. Zeroed at 200yds on a .243 and never changes adjustment. I think I am the only one who has ever "cranked the knobs", since he zeroed it. For my eye, they are so close in optics, it is hard to tell the difference. I tried to approach this from a standpoint of "me" buying a scope. Given your info, I would go wth the Millet.

Milletts customer service is excellent. Swift is a nice scope as well. Either of these is going to serve you well. I too like the reticle that the TRS has.
