I apologize if this is the wrong forum -

I ordered a scope over the weekend (one of SWFA's ebay auctions, 329$ 10X42) and was informed it's currently on backorder. Now my question is, are they pretty good about getting stock out to customers? I understand holidays are busy, but I was kind of hoping to have it here before Christmas.

I would call them and talk to them directly.  SWFA is one of the best in the industry, but if they don't have them then they can't really ship them.

They were out when I ordered mine but had it shipped about 3-5 days later.

Yeah, I called them, they don't have them in yet, no idea when they will be available. Still kind of irks me that they are listed as "20+ in stock" on ebay though.

I'm not sure why SWFA would bother listing them on ebay if they don't have any in stock, I'm sure there is some reasonable explanation for it.  We are not supposed to complain too much about them though as this is their site and all Wink.  Honestly though I have ordered from them a few times without any problems and would order again.  Just need to be aware they will let you order stuff even if it is not in stock which is a bit annoying.  I guess (just a theory) they offer so many products for sale that they cannot realistically have it all in stock.  So with the more obscure things they have to order from a wholesaler after you place an order.  The Super Sniper scopes are different go out as fast as they come in I hear.  I am not sure what is the issue though, is there a high demand and low production numbers or what.

"I'm not sure why SWFA would bother listing them on ebay if they don't have any in stock"
 
That is easy to answer.  They HAD them in stock -----THEY SOLD THEM. Once they sell all they have --- they continue taking orders for them as a backordered item.  They sell a LOT of them. They sell a lot of them because they are really good and worth any wait and inconvenience you might encounter as a result of getting in line after the guy that bought the 20th scope.
 
It is really not uncommon for a military unit to call up and order 20 of something or 200 of something.
