Hey gang.


I've seen this discussion on a number of gun forums, but not everyone who reads Forum X reads Forum Y and vice versa, so I figured I'd post here to hopefully get an even mix of responses.


Anyway, I bought an SS 10x from SWFA (wow what a fantastic value and wow what fantastic service).  I am also considering buying a 3200 10x just to see the two side-by-side.  Given the 30mm tube on the SS I would expect it to be clearer and brighter; folks who have used both have good and bad to say about both.  Some folks seem to like the 3200 better, some the SS.


Anyway, given that this is an optics only forum, I figured I'd ask here.


3200 vs SS, which one and why?

SS - great glass, great value. tough as nails.


3200 is not close to the quality of the 4200's.


SS is a wonderful tactical scope - i had one MANY moons ago and it was a wonderful scope.

they have gotten exponentially better since, from what i hear.


i am about to buy a new one for my .223 remington.


good luck.

Between the 2 scopes in question, which scope do you think this DM would choose??

Agreed, but Ron Barrett put the 3200s on some of his rifles, and I'm wondering if its because somone just dropped off a few pallettes of them at his warehouse, or because there's something there that I need to see for myself.

I have only looked through some 3200's.

Not the 10x one you are inquiring about.


I do own a Super Sniper 10x and I couldn't be happier. -

Check out some of the info on here and be sure to check the Reviews section too.


Good shooting!

I have been searching OT and there was something about this a while back. The SS was thought to be a much sturdier scope was the consensus. I personally haven't compared, but when I get my "BBetty" it's going to wear a 10X SS. That is based upon opinions hear at OT.
