I went to my somewhat local Sports shop for a little hands on the different scopes yesterday and did a little looking through the glass to see the differences. I was told that the new Monarch is actually an improved UCC model.
I did like the way the Monarch 2-8X32 looks. It was very crisp and clear.
I am now waiting to see if SWFA will do a trade-in for me on my Swift.
At least I will have one Zeiss Conquest on one rifle, and one Nikon Monarch on the other rifle to tell the calibers apart!

Nice glass on both the conquest and monarch scopes, which swift scope model did you own ?

I have the Swift Premier model 658M Matte Black. It is the 2-7X40 with Butler Creek Flip Up covers on it.
I was happy with this scope on my other .308 before trading the BAR. I guess I was just looking for an excuse to put a new scope on a new rifle! I talked myself into buying a new one.
