I'm looking at a used Swarovski scope to buy.  The only question I had is this:  On the top of the eye piece, it reads: 3-10x42 A.  What does the A stand for?  Does is stand for American?  Or what?  Any other cautions I should have?  The scope is a Swaro AV 3-10x42 with TDS reticle.  Thanks!

Yes, the "A" stands for "American."  "AV" = "American Variable."  I have the 3-10X42 AV (but not with TDS), and I have been very happy with mine ever since I bought it 10 years ago.  I can't think of anything you should be cautious about, as it's a great scope.  I've heard some say that Swaro doesn't recommend using any of the AV scopes on really hard kicking rifles.  I haven't personally heard that from them and can't verify that myself.  Nevertheless, if you plan on mounting it on a heavy recoiling rifle, it wouldn't hurt to call S.O.N.A. and ask them about this.
