For the price, even the early Super Snipers are one of the best deals on the market.  I have "hands on" with the 10x, 16x, 20x, 10xHD and 3-9.  They are all very good quality.  The 10xHD and 3-9 outperform anything in their price range.  My 10xHD sits on my .50BMG and is averaging .75MOA.

I have never heard someone say that something more expensive is better than a Super Sniper unless you save $1200-$2000 more, and that is with the $1,499.95 price tag of the new one.

I have an original 10x that sits on a 300 wsm Savage. Never had any tracking errors at all. Glass is clear and bright, especially considering the $300 price tag. I have yet to try any of the H.D. line, other than to look through one of the 3-9 at a local tac-shoot, but can not wait to get my grubby little paws on the new 5-20X50!

Well what is your definition of quality?

Lets start with the $300.00 line (I do own one of these.)
  1. It is a fixed power. (Depends upon what your application is on weather this fits your needs)
  2. It has over 120 moa of adjustment (important to long range shooters. Nothing in this price range has this that I have found)
  3. Tough as nails (run over it with your truck and it still works)
  4. Adjustment knobs that are repeatable and accurate (find me another in this price range that is this good)
  5. Glass is good enough to shoot past 600 yards easy. ( Not great glass. It is not 1000 dollar glass)
  6. Warranty and Customer service that can't be beat. ( Might be matched by some but not beat) 

For me a quality scope is one that will do exactly what I need it to do for years on end, and the SS 16x has done that for me year after year. I have never had it not be able to dial in differing ranges, all day long, and return to my original zero. I can count on it. I do not worry about babying it. I am going to have to spend 3 times the money to actually replace it with something that I feel will do a better job. 

I do not own the higher end scopes but from what I can tell they are just as trustworthy, but they have better glass. If you want to know what I am planning on replacing it with, it will be the ss 5x 20. It will give me the variable power I would like and the step up of glass that I am desiring. Will it do the job any better? I do not know. The SS 16 has put my bullet where I want it to go for years.

 So to me the quality of the scopes are there. Are they the best. NO. Are they the best for the money. I think they are.

I would say this sums up my love for SWFA SS line of non HD and HD Scopes...

I don't usually buy CRAP.

By no means am I an expert, but I absolutely love my SS 10xHD.
I am famous for having buyer's remorse on everything I buy, but I bought this scope sight unseen based off the reviews.  I've never once regretted getting it.  In fact, I feel a bit guilty lusting after the 5-20 so badly when my 10x is perfect.

In my opinion, I shot it side by side with a NF 3.5-15x50NXS, and there wasn't that much difference in what my eyes saw through the scope to justify buying the NF over the SS.  Not knocking the NF, just trying to illustrate how solid the SS line is.

Took me 7 years to buy mine kind wish I wouldnt have waited as long as I did. Then again I should have waited a little while long and bought the SS 5-20 it is the next one I buy Wink. I'd say its the one the best in the price range and then some.

I have originals in 10x and 6x (both rear focus).

they are dead nutz repeatable.  They also have perfectly good glass ... better than a lot of more expensive stuff out there. 

If you are hearing you need to wait and save more, be ready to save A LOT more!

It used to be that you could just say nothing beat them for the price (and quite a few scopes priced higher). Then the 10X HD and the 3-9X came along and the line became even more compelling. If I didn't already have a NF 2.5-10, I would have kept the 3-9X that I reviewed. Now along comes the new 5-20...HD and illuminated. Those who have seen my recommendations know that I regularly advocate for low end over high end but in this case I've made an exception and ordered one. If I ran a .223 I'd have one of the new 1-4s too. If SWFA introduces a 3-12X I'm likely to never buy anything else again.

As a matter of background, I get an opportunity to look at a LOT of scopes, since they are sent to me for testing.

I also own quite a few different brands.  As far as brands go, I have more Super Snipers than anything else.  Two rear focus models: 6x42 and 10x42, along with two newer model: 3-9x42 and 10x42HD.  The new 5-20x50 will be on the way shortly.

I have a reasonably decent idea (well, an educated guess really) of the models they've got in the pipeline and I am quite certain this will not be my last Super Sniper.  Not by a long shot.

I think that pretty much sums it up.
As a fellow SS owner, I say you are definitly getting ALOT more than you pay for. LOT LOT LOT

I recently spent a few months using a fellow OT member's SS 3-9X42, and I was very impressed with it!  It tracked dead nuts, and it had excellent optics rivaling scopes that cost much more.  I will be buying a SS 1-4X24 soon, and I will also buy the upcoming 5-20X50 when it's available. 
 
Buy with confidence.
