Default SWFA super sniper 10x42m

I bought one of these scopes a few weeks ago, but only recently mounted it and shot with it, i read all the reviews and did some research on it and all seems very impressive,the scope is very clear,good eye relief and seems to be built very well, adjustments are on the money,only thing i seemed to notice is that the clicks can be a little soft in one direction but are still positive clicks, not bad at all for the money, has anyone else used this scope and what is your take on the scope?

I have one and it is excellent for the money. I also had a 16X and it's clicks were precise and easy.

They are a great value.

Thanks for the report guys.
I've been looking at them for a while, but never knew someone that used one.
Nice to hear from someone outside of the published testimonials.

They are in pretty heavy use out here. I know a bunch of guys who own at least one of them, and they have had no issues at all.

The optics are not as clear or bright as good Euro glass, but still excellent.

The clicks can be hard to feel if you are wearing gloves but cleaning some of the lube off the turrets helps fix that problem.

They are easily worth 2-2.5 times what you pay for one.

If you are target shooting, they are fine. But as a hunting scope they get low marks. A 4x for meat hunting, yes. A 10x for meat hunting, No. This company tends to draw mall ninjas from Arf.com.

I have two of those SS scopes, both are mounted on 22 rifles. I had the first one on a AR15 for awhile & used it for coyote hunting. Shots to 200 yds on steel with the Savage MKII FV with the SS scope& a EGW 20 moa rail are easy enough & if the wind ever quits blowing I'll go out further. My goal is 300 yds. I don't know if there is enough elevation in the scope to do that yet, though.

Plenty of elevation in the Super Sniper for 300 yard use.

Your right! Got to 300 with some elevation left to spare. I can't call them groups yet, but I was hitting my IDPA style steel target at that range. Even a 4 mph 1/4 value wind will blow the .22 LR round around a little.
