The Field Tested Workhorse
SWFA SS 3-15x42



In sub-zero temperatures or searing desert heat (-50 degrees to +130 degrees Fahrenheit, and altitudes of 30,000 feet to depths of 15 feet in salt water) the waterproof, shockproof, fogproof SS performs. Whatever the weapon, from .223 to .50 BMG, the SS handles the recoil. Whatever the target, the SS gives you the best advantage. Made of lightweight aluminum but strong as steel, it has superior multicoated optics for maximum light transmission. Built to NATO specs.

Reviewer: Yoder

This scope is a great value, aside from good glass and consistent turret tracking with both audible and tactile clicks you're getting:

*FFP reticle (with mil reticle you can range targets at any mag range)
*Adjustable Parallax from as close as 6m up to infinity
*Matching MIL/MIL reticle and turrets
*Good glass (Japanese glass, not HD but still very nice)
*3-15x magnification range is versatile for shooting close or far
*30mm Tube and HUGE RANGE of adjustment (36 mils) so likely wont need a 20MOA or other canted base
*Integrated knob/lever on magnification ring so no need for throw lever

Although the scope doesn't have illumination or a zero stop you can solve the latter buy purchasing a kit for $22 (search YouTube or SnipersHide forum and you'll find them) and it certainly works as I've installed a set on mine. I dont need illumination for what I'm doing and for the price point i'm already getting great value. I highly recommend this scope.

Just love this scope. Exceeds all expectations and comes in under budget. Comparable scopes with these features and performance would cost me over $1,000.

Fantastic scope. I have it on my Savage 308 using 168gr Hornady Match bullets. In 98 degree temp at 2.7 mils shot one inch high 1/2 inch right of bulls-eye at 500 yards on sand bags. out of three shots two were within one and 1/4 inch one to one 1/2 inch low two and 1/2 inch left. 

The third shot 1/2 inch left six inch low. 

the glass is clear at this range, turrets very positive clicks.

rifle zeroed at 200 yards Great combination. Savage Axis for $299.00, and this scope made it a real shooter.
all at 500 yards.

Mounted this scope on a .22 PCP air rifle. Glass is very good, tracks perfect, reticle is good as it gets. The PCP with a rainbow trajectory, the reticle and elevation tracking makes 50 to 100 yard easy.

I would buy this scope again, very pleased.

SWFA's customer service is very good, others should copy.
