How good are they, do you guys have any experience. DO they have good reputation?

I've had one for about 2 years mounted on a Ruger NO.1 in 7 mm Mag. It's a decent lower price range scope. I paid $100 for mine. Ofcourse not up to the same standards of Leupold, but better than the $100 Tascos and Simmons that I have seen. They also have a lifetime warranty, but that wouldn't mean much if it made you miss a good buck.

I have 2 swift scopes. Not that bad. Clarity is fair, Price is good. I have one on an 30-30 and one on a PSS. I have had 3 rnd groups covered with a half dollar at 100yds. Hit golf balls at 150yds.

I am overall happy with mine. I plan on upgrading the one on the PSS someday, but it has treated me well. I would buy one again. Supposedly the quality has gone up in the the past year. My buddy's had a god awful "snap" when you adjusted the magnification (was on a flat-top Bushy). He sent it back and they gave him a new one. No questions asked. He was happy.

Swift make a good scope. I would, hoever, consider the Leupold ($177 everyday at academy sports) or the simmons aetec (aleays on sale for less than $150 somewhere). ZT

Which Leupold and what in hell are you talking about?

You definately want to stay away from Simmons and Leupold is AMAZING! What price range are you looking at Colonel?

My Dad sold these in his gun shop for the better part of 18 years......and for the money you can't beat them.....sent one back to Swift for a customer because it had fogged up......the scope had to have been 10 to 12 years old......and they sent a new scope in place of it no charge....how can ya go wrong there....

minman: I'm referring to the Leupold vari-x II that Academy Sports (a medium sized sporting goods chain) sells for $177USD everyday. Its a great low priced scope. Also, the Simmons AETEC 2.8-10x44 is available for less than $150 online. The Simmons may not be the best built scope, but the AETEC lens system provides very good clarity. Personally, I'd try to find a used Zeiss or Schmidt and Bender for $700, but to each his own! ZT
