From left, 6X42, 10X42, 10X42SF, 12X42, 16X42 and 20X42.

I didn't take a whole lot of pics of the exteriors since they look the same as they always have except for the numbering on the turrets.  Here are a couple of the Turrets:





They're all pretty much the same.

Here are some shots of the reticles.  Again a gloomy day at the range which made taking good pics difficult--especially with the 16X and 20X so don't try and judge the glass quality from the pics.  Don't get me wrong, these aren't meant to compete with the HD series glass-wise, but they do look better in person than in those pics.

6X42:

Much like the 3-9 with thick posts and solid diamonds:





100 yds:



300 yds:



10X42 (SF and RF look identical):









12X42:









16X42:









20X42:

I'll have to get back to you on elevation.  The subtensions are different, with the lower powers having thicker lines and posts, the higher powers thinner.

Anyone else notice that the mil-dot version of the 3-9x42 has been removed, with only the Mil-Quad version still there?

This is great news. This has been a very hard year for me. Construction went down the tubs in my parts. Lost my job back in August. Have not really found anything in construction management since. Money has been very tight. Well, long story short. When I build back up my rigs, some of these will be my first choices to get back economically. I love the addition of the 12 x. Thanks swfa for making these available (soon Big Smile) in mil/mil.

I recently purchased the SS 10X42 Classic with the Mil Quad reticle. Mounted it on my Marlin XS7VH in .308. Still waiting on my thumbhole stock before I break in the barrel and zero scope. Should be here next week. This optic should do everything I need out to the range of the round. I did plenty of research before settling on the 10X42. The main feature I appreciate is the amount of adjustment on the turrets. Nobody makes aftermarket bases for the Marlin yet, so one is stuck with the factory flat base.Cool
