Title: Swfa uh.....
Post by: car-ram-rod on October 19, 2016, 10:16:04 am
After I got my new load zeroed for my Barrett m99 my swfa SS fixed 10x decided to take a shit on me.

On the plus side there warranty covered it and I'll be getting a new scope for free.

Saw that on Facebook.  Did it just come off under recoil?

A friend had one that went bad ( lost the use of elevation). took the elev. knob off and found the plastic gears were stripped.

When I had my Barrett I went through 2 swfa optics on it, i did not want to put my nightforce in the thing and since swfa claimed theirs were 50 proof I said fuck it.  Blew out a 10x and a 16x.  Both turned the recticles sideways after about 10 rounds

I still believe there good scopes even after my problem. The Barrett is a bolt action
