I would like to order one of the new SWFA SS 12x42 scopes with MOA reticle. I have a 10x42 but with mil-quad reticle, but have long wished for a Classic SS scope with MOA, which is my preference whenever possible. I imagine the build quality of the two scopes is the same, but I'm wondering if the glass quality is the same.

Anybody have both of these scopes that could tell me if the 12x is a good buy, or should I just stick with the 10x and get used to the mil-quad reticle? I would appreciate any and all opinions. Thanks.

Glass should be the same. 

I had the 12x SS and liked it. I sold it because I didn't really need it, when I already had a VERY serviceable SS 10x.

Thanks. I see the wisdom of your words and will pass on the 12x. Now I need to get busy and learn the Mil-quad reticle.
