There's a part of me that would love to pick up one of the new 1-4 SS Optics...but I just can't justify one.  I have a 10x42M and a 6x42...great scopes!!!  They do exactly what I want...and they are in a decent price range.  I am looking for a 1-4x24 optic that doesn't break the bank but is a quality product.  A 1-4 with a simple reticle @ $300 would be awesome...maybe I'm dreaming but I remember a time when SS Optics were reasonably affordable and could hang with the 'uber' optics.  An intermediate price line of SS Optics would be great...any chance?

As tremendous a value as our, (yours and mine), older Super Sniper's are, they really aren't in the same league as the new line of Super Sniper's are. The folks at SWFA wanted to offer their customers something special and started with a blank piece of paper and built these new SS from the ground up.  
Have you looked at or through the new 1-4x SS? The glass on mine is stellar. 

I think your asking if SWFA is going to make any "tweener" Super Sniper's in the future. I certainly can't speak for SWFA, but I would say they are going continue to get better and better. Why go backwards? 

Dude, you've been registered on this forum for a looooong time.

Hippie...yup, been here a while.  ...don't say much, just like to read what others have to say.  I guess I just would rather have a SS than buy something from someone else.  I just can't see the point to buy something that is so advanced that I'll never be able to utilize.  Why not provide a simple reticle for straight forward shooting...

I'm loyal to my SS's too, but there's some decent, no frills 1-4x optics out there in the $300 range.  
Seems like 1-4x optics have been the rage for a few years now, with all the AR shooters coming around.

The next "wave" IMO will be the 1-8x models on AR's.

Cheap trick hit the nail on the head.  The "new" line of SS scopes are a complete step up in optics from the $299 models.  I was skeptical when the first model came out, the 10x HD model for 799 seemed steep.  I picked up one on the samplelist for a 100 off and gambled.  The glass is a huge upgrade in clarity and quality.  When I wanna develop a load on a rifle and dial it in ... that is the scope I use.  So when the 3-9 FFP came out, I snatched one of those up and now have 2 of them.  Have the circle reticle 1-4 and one of the new 5-20 models as well.  I am a HUGE USO fan but having USO SN3's on all my rifles is just not financially possible.  So the rifles that don't have USO glass get SS models.  My Varmint AR has the 5-20 on it and shooting MOA steel to 600 yards is easy.  I have the 1-4 and 3-9 on the BoBro mounts for a 16 inch 1/7 floated AR, with the 1-4 you can shoot both eyes open clost in and 500 yard hits on a E type on 4x are a snap.  with the 3-9 on it shooting 2MOA steel out to 600 is pretty cut and dry.  This is with 77g hand loads in a AR that is far cry from a $800 DPMS sporter. 
 
Long winded reply, short version ... the $599 KIT for the 3-9 with Bobro mount, BC flips, sunshade, ARD or the $799 KIT for the 1-4 with Bobro mount... is a STEAL ... you will me more than happy with it.
 
Another plug for that setup is its FFP.  On the AR platform ... you see your impact and reference your reticle ... hold correction ... rengage ... DONE.  Its FFP so no matter what mag power your on ... it will work.
