Reply To: SWFA SS 10×42, rear or side focus?
I prefer side focus. I have a bug buster on a airsoft sniper rifle, I have the protective flip cap mounted so when open, it’s nearly touching the stock at *50yds, I use the cap to adjust the AO with thumb to *decrease range and can guesstimate range by the angle of the cap. Have two side focus scopes Athlon Argos BTR and UTG Swat -so much easier to use, with the 80mm side-wheel on the UTG my left hand thumb can adjust easily -while on target…looking for a side-wheel for the Athlon -loving the SPF APMR recital. But like most things over time you’ll get use to it, think about those old muzzle loaders the mountain men used -practice practice practice.
*edit, dyslexic memory, picked the rifle up yesterday and saw my minds mistake!
