They are great scopes. You don't hear much about them though. I have two, a basic 3-9x40 on my Mini-14 Ranch and then a 4.5-14x44 mil-dot on my 20" RRA upper. They are high quality, yet the price is right.

ETA Swift is better known for making lenses in microscopes, and does a pretty good job at that

My spotting scope is a Swift.

It isn't bad at 100 yards.

I like the optics of the Swift scopes. They have a flatter field than my Leupolds and a bit better resolution IMHO cost less. Mechanically, sometimes you get one with a lot of backlash in the screws, but that's true with a lot of brands with each scope actually hand built. The good news is they have an over the counter return policy, so you just get another.

I have a 4x-12x40mm Swift scope with an adjustable objective lense (to dial out paralex) on my CZ452 American 22 LR. Really nice scope, I would buy one again.
