They do... or they did, here's one example, couldn't find any on the main SWFA website, just the sample list.

It varies, but from what I understand Zeiss is doing some re-working of their lines, so what SWFA has may be existing stock until things get updated.  I saw the one that Mike mentioned.  I almost bought one like it when I bought my 4.5-14x50 with hunter turrets from the SL.I ended up putting the black scope on my stainless barrel and couldn't be happier with the looks.  Here's a peek:

IMO, black scopes on stainless barrels are fine. It's nearly impossible to get a perfect match between "silver" scopes and different SS barrels anyway. Besides, in the future, you may end up doing some scope swapping / rifle hopping. LOL. Just my $.02. Hippie

sweet rig DC94....  can ya tell us a bit more about it?  I really like the Green stock.  And I do like black optics with stainless receiver/barrels.  Why limit yourself to short list of Silver scopes?

Nice looking rig. 

Black on stainless is OK, just don't go stainless scope with black matte rings or some such.

Guess I'm no fashion queen. I put tan, O.D., and coyote furniture on black rifles. Anything as long as it worksBucky

Ah...The Rick James Commemorative Edition. Wink

That looks really good. There's enough black on the scope so it doesn't clash with the black rings.

Thanks Mark!

I like the all silver look if your hunting for a silver scope to mount on a rifle.


That's my daughter, eleven years old in that picture, shooting a 10/22 with compact 3-9x33 Leupold at our range. She has many rabbits under her belt, graduated to a .243 and shot her first buck this past summer (3x3); one shot one kill, to the neck. She's well on her way to be a better shot than me.

Opps, sorry Todd, I deleted and re-posted due to grammar, then saw your question.


Yes, the zone we hunt in starts the second weekend in August and ends 7 weeks later toward the end of September. It's usually Africa hot the first three to four weeks and then starts to cool down, the last week is by far the best.

It's coastal area, mixture of hills, mountains, meadows, etc.

When our zone ends, others start. DFG is pretty good in timing each zone so hunting isn't going on during full blown rut. The last week when the temps really drop, the rut starts.
