I've been looking at a high magnification, long range scope with AO, and I was gonna get a Swift 6-18X44 AO for $170, but since I havne't heard much about them, I was thinking about a Simmons 4-12X44 AO for $170.... Which of those 2 would be better? or would there be another one in that price range (sub $200) that has similar features? 

Thanks.

I would probably go with the Simmons. They usually are decent scopes for the money. Swift scopes have a spotty reputation.

Thanks, I hadn't heard much on the swifts.. I've heard afew say there alright, but I think I'll follow your advise and stick with the big guys who have a good reputation.

We do not have any hands on experience with the Swift line.  The 44 Mag series however, we have been selling for years.

 

I feel comfortable in saying that it is one of the best scopes we sell under $200.
