My box from SWFA arrived today, nearly felt like Christmas! Anyway as I opened the box and unrolled the SS from it's bubble wrap, my first thoughts were: "Wow, that this is a rugged, robust scope, I could probably club someone over the head with it and still be zeroed in."  The w/e turrets are larger than I imagined, which will make them easily workable even with gloves on. Optical clarity seems really good first glance through it. Very audible clicks, but they don't positively stop between clicks, more of a smooth motion through clicks.

This thing is gonna look great on my Grendel, and I'm sure it will perform just as well. I can't wait to get it mounted and shooting at paper. I'll try to have some pics and a range report soon........Great looking product at a great price SWFA crew!

Another Super Sniper "Believer" in the making......

 

Now Charlie70, go to the range of your choice, set up some targets and proceed to terminate them with..."extreme prejudice." 

 

Best wishes!!

I'm sure you'll love it!
