Had to return the 1st one because of slight spherical aberration and slight barrel distortion. SWFA was very nice about it. David hand picked another and sent it on it's way no questions asked. Also ordered Weaver med., height tactical rings. Scope with adjusted eye relief to my specs and rings were attached to a Bassett, low Picatinny mount all ending up on a stock SAI M1A. Guessed at the torc specs on the rings. Next day to place on paper , shot at 25 yards. Scope turrets at zero. 8 shot's touching in the X ring! I was amazed that with a casual mount and considering all the variables that this was possible.Shocked Went to 200 yards, took 10 shot's to dial in. The last 5 produced an inch and 3/4 group.

I'd add photo's but don't have a URL based photo thingy. Can't seem to upload from my computer.

Sounds good nice to have the rifle up and running.

I really like my 6xSS.  It is a great compliment to a rimfire to work on your doping drops and windage!
