The regular 10x rear focus.

Question tho does that model have the turrets where once you zero you can reset them 2 zero?

Guess what I got yesterday







I got it last night. After I got off work I spent the evening with my girlfriend. I took her home about midnight. Then came back and was up to all most 2 am playing with the scope. Then I mounted it and had played some more.  I got up this morning and been outside trying it out. Hope to get to go shoot it soon.

I will come back later with a hopefully decent report. But i ran outside .. fired a few shots. zeroed the rifle. reset the knobs to zero. cranked them both at random. then returned the back to zero and fired a shot. right on the money. Will be back with a report later tho.

Well good news and bad news. I got to shoot my 22. I took everything i needed. I took my camera and was going to attach it to my spotter and take some video for but turns out the batteries were dead.  I double checked my zero at 20 yards. then we I had brand new swing 22 targets. at about 120 yards. We having to shoot over a pond to the other side.  Cranked some knobs and fired 3 at the big 3.5in target. Then we moved up on the hill as far back as we could about 150-155 yards. WE were shooting on very rough uneven ground on my shooting mat. I went out to set my my paper target I was gonna use for range report but it started storming really bad and we had to leave. But I got a picture of the spinner..


The big size is left to right. 3.5", 2.25", 1.5"

I know this is  not the best way to demonstrate the accuracy of the rifle but its all I got right now. At 150 yards  on the 3.5" well you really cant miss unless you just shank it. The other 2 were more challenging. I was hitting the 1.5 about 1 out of 4.  My friend who is a better shooter, shot it and nailed the smallest 3 out of 4. 

Hopefully Ill get to go again. Next time I will bring my camera with batteries and record some videos.
I was really amazed that I could see the  vapor trail thru my spotter. VERY COOL

As far as the SWFA SS scope goes. The glass was ok I guess about what I expect for around the money. IMO I think my Buckmaster6-18x40 might be slightly better though.
The parallax adjustment  is ok. I am a side focus man myself. I dont mind the rear focus. Just adjust till you get the correct picture.  My only real complain about the rear focus is that adjustments are to close together.  You are only only using about 180 degrees of the ring. Im not an engineer but if it is possible to spread the adjustments out further I think it would be more precise. Otherwise I have dont have a problem with it. It is very close and easy to adjust. Adjustments are not loose and floppy, but they are not so tight that u have to hold the gun while u adjust. I could see why people dont like it because you cant read the numbers, but its not necessary. Your eye will suffice as judge.
The knobs are my favorite part. The clicks are smooth and audible and most importantly repeatable. On my 22 I went from 20yards to 120 to 150 back to 20, no problems. Once my zero was achieved I just loosened the 3 screws and reset the knobs to zero. Numbers and marks are easy to read. You get 15 minutes per revolution.  The fact that the knobs seem oversized its a great attribute. Very easy to grip. I believe with gloves you would have no problem making adjustments.

All in all for the money this is a hard scope to beat. My only complaint is, I didnt buy one sooner.

Hopefully next time I will get to bring back some paper targets and video to show ya'll. If any one has any questions or comments feel free to mention it.

That looks like pretty good shooting to me. A 22 L.R., over 100yds and a storm coming in. How was the wind?

We were shooting wold match target. were shooting in about 3-5 at first and by the end it was closer to 15. We tried to do it in in breaks. those. the wind was coming in from about 7oclock. I honestly didnt know a 22 could do as good as we did. At `150 the 3.5 was a easy pickings. It actually got boringly easy.  But the other 2 seemed to be really pushing us. I am not expert shoot by any means I still consider myself a beginner just learning the ways. But I am VERY proud of our shooting today. Cant wait to blast some more. If I may say in my rifle the wolf target match is some amazing ammo.  I think next im gonna get a better bipod.

The storm snuck up on us. it was pretty calm then it started coming in out of nowhere. we shot for about 10 mins  then it started to get rough so we decided to leave. But most of the time it was very pleasant.
