SWFA 6x42 SS - Mil-Quad Reticle, 30mm, .1 MIL Clicks, Rear FocusSWFA SS
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.

This scope and the 10x42 MQ are by far my favorite scopes. The 6x42 is a little more versatile for hunting use though in my opinion. I used to be a staunch Leupold guy but I tried the 6x42 MQ and now I have SWFA's on all my main using rifles. They always hold zero, always track, I never worry about them getting knocked off zero, they are built like tanks. The reticle is simple and easy to use. You just can't beat them, especially for $299.
I have owned this 2+ years. This scope is clear and bright. Actually bought this and a Leupold FX-3 6x42 at the same time for comparison. This was a bit clearer and brighter at dark than the Leupold. Sold the FX. The mil-quad is nice but a little thin in the quad section as the sun lowers though it has never prevented me from taking a shot. The 6x is probably a better magnification for most people and most purposes. I liked this scope so much, I just bought another SWFA 6x42 (mil-dot).
