I've been prying for info on that one for months..... unfortunately I highly doubt we will hear much from any new scopes very far ahead of time after the 1-6's unexpected delays.

Expected delays can be like customs issues and such.

All marketing aside, I wonder if we could see a scope in the $500 range variable mid power.

I'd pay more than $500 for a mid-variable with side focus and lit reticle. Hoping for something a little lighter than the 5-20 monster. :)

No info has been released, just a mysterious photo on the SWFA facebook page.

Don't think they're going to get caught in that trick bag again.

SWFA offered a scope to the general public as a pre buy - (discount code for tax season and or facebook likes) for hundreds less than the original price and it blew up in their face because every gun owner that owns a gun or 100 guns has entitlement issues and we all are mostly give me the best deal now because I deserve it and we think that because we are offered something as a pre buy we should get it when we want and not have to wait for any bumps in the road or any unforeseen issues with manufacturing and delivery.( Run on Sentence) So enough people complained and hooted and hollered about a few dollars that they were spending on scopes that are way undervalued because they had one reserved on one of the special and delivery didn't come as expected and every time any update was given many griped, complained and made threats that ruined it for all of the conservative patient folks.  So now they won't tell us until scopes are in hand due to the general nature of those that cannot bear to keep from being nasty and whinny. 

Now you forgot to ask.

"Ask you what?"

Ask me if I give a  Evil Laugh out Load
