new member here. 1st post, been visiting this forum and ordering from SWFA for a while now. I LOVE my XOTIC on my .50.   I read in a post here that a variable SS is in the works- any updates on when it will be available?  Any idea what powers will be available?   I want to buy at least one in the 4-16x44 range, and maybe another in something like 3-9x40 or so fro a couple of my rifles.

I thought I saw a post on another board (THR, Firing Line?) where Chris posted pics and some specs of the variables coming out - anyone know where I could find those?

I can't wait!  I am passing up good deals right now on "Almost perfect for my applications" optics to wait for these.  I am thinking that overall the best Tactical will be the 4.5-18x42 model - I like to mount my optics as low as I can, so the 42mm obj will help - also the exit pupil should be better as well as eye relief, and it will be lighter. 

 

Now, here's a question - will it have the same (if not superior) glass that the current SS uses?

 

Same awesome MOA adjustments?

 

Most importantly - first focal plane or second focal plane for the reticle?

I bet the SS variables will sell out fast. I guess a guy should put in an order as soon as they will take them because each shipment will be gone as fast as they come in.
