 I have a Super Blackhawk Hunter in .44 mag that I need opinions on. I initially put a Simmons scope on it that only lasted for 50 rounds. I now have a 4x Swift on it. The Swift seems ok, but not sure it will last. I also really don't need 4x. I would be ok with a red dot, but would want 2x. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Oh, I plan to shoot deer, relatively close range. Thanks!

Ditto that here. Mine is on a Redhawk and no problems.
I don't think you should have to worry about your Swift. It might be a bit better in low light, too.

even if you swift dies, you can replace it by taking it back to whomever you bought it from and they will give you a brand new one over  the counter no ? asked, if they are out of your model they will have to order it for you, but it still wont cost anything, swifts warranty is excellent.

The Swift I have on it now is really clear. I have only sighted it in and have about 300 rds. on the scope. I'm just not sure how I will like the 4x for hunting wooded areas. I initially bought the scope for a Mosin, as a scout scope. I will check on the Leupold 2x. I'm just gathering info in preperation for next season. I have not hunted with the SBH yet, but wanted to fit it with a good scope and practice alot! Thanks for the feedback!

Burris handgun scopes are very good.  I've been using a 2-7 on my 454 Casull for over 2000 rounds with no problems.  I used the Burris 2X before that.  It was good too, but goes dark in low light.  I keep the 2-7 on lower powers and it's good until dark.

I am a 2X fan and have used Burris, Leupold, and Sightron on various rifle and pistol rounds in T/C barrels.  The Burris was a posi-lock and it, the posi-lock itself, gave me a problem with the 44mag barrel, but Burris fixed it.  (I have since traded that scope on a different barrel.)  The 44mag barrel also was hard on the horizontal adjustment of the Sightron, but I was given a new scope by my local dealer and it has worked fine on a 30-30 barrel ever since.  The Leupold has not given me any problems.

I know someone who happens to have an Aimpoint on his 460 S&W! Hundreds of rounds with no problems yet!!!....I am even considering an Aimpoint in the 9000L. Not only for handgun but rifle too! Don`t have to worry about eye relief issues and they are extremely fast to the target!!...............The more I read about these Aimpoints, the more I like them!!

I have the 2-7 Burris, also. What MWY says about the 2X Burris applies to my 2X Leupold as well. The best way would be to compare if the opportunity arises. The Swift should be brighter in low light.
