I have a new 1 month old SWFA 16X42 I'll trade for your SWFA 12×42

Hey Roger, why don't you like your 16x?  I'll keep it in mind but not sure I want a scope fixed at such a high mag.

I love the scope for long range but I made the mistake of buying it for a 12fpe Walther LGV master pro that I shoot 20 to 25 yards. IMHO the 16 power just doesn't work well at close range. I should have bought a 10 or 12, at the time the 12 power was out of stock so I hit the buy button on the 16, you live you learn.
