I recently purchased a SWFA 5-20x50 MRAD (from the April Tax Sale) and it was delivered a couple weeks ago while I was out of town on business.  I finally had a chance to take it out of the box and take a look at it and play with it a bit.  The question I have for others that own one of these scopes, are the marks on the vernier scale align precisely with each click?
The windage scale on this scope is spot on, the elevations scale does not align and is maybe 1/3 the distance between marks.
My other two SWFA scopes (10x and 3-15) align perfectly.
Should I send it back for exchange?
Also there were no instructions or any paper work in the box with the scope other than the order paper.

Thanks Tom

Tom give them a call and discuss your concerns. SWFA does a wonderful job with customer service. I have two of that model. When scopes attach the turret knob with three hex screws that can be fine tuned. When they have gear type with one screw it is more solid but sometimes can be as you describe.
