    “JoeWayneRhea”Techno you gonna shit when you look thru it the first time !!!

    
After waiting for this sale for 2 months I actually wet my pants when I got the e-mail.   So I will pick up some adult underwear before it gets here. The deal is I’ll be hopefully needing 2 scopes before long for a AAA Evol .30 and a Daystate Wolverine “R” .25.  I thought maybe I would try a scope with some HD glass for one of them and  I just can’t find a scope to pull the trigger on that has all the airgun features I want.  Gotta have FFP, side focus down to 10 yds, 15-20 power max, maybe 50mm, and not a heavy pig.  I want  a reticle that is friendly for holdover and I don’t care about illumination. These are field guns for varmints. 
    I swear I might just go ahead and order a 2nd  SWFA 3-15  before the sale is over. Whataya think Joe ? 
    Cheers,Scott

    I just bought the 3-15X42 FFP MOA for $630 shipped.  The SFP version was extremely tempting for $180 (cost $450) cheaper, but I had to pass.  I figured if I buy the best scope off the bat, I will not have to keep upgrading continuously and spending $ for upgrades.  I also got a 4″ range wheel for the AO from Scope Werks.

    “JoeWayneRhea”Trust someone who has owned like a dozen swfa scopes . The 3-15 I brighter and sharper

    
Joe you got me so confused so I went and bought the 3-15 also, my 16×42 shipped today and the 3-15 will probably go tomorrow hopefully I’ll have them by the weekend. I still haven’t decided on what Rifles I want to put them but that’s a nice problem to have. I would have also ordered a HD model but unfortunately I have to cut a check to the IRS .

    Hi Joe

    Do you have an opinion on the 3-15 FFP for field target use?
    I’ve not seen any FFP used in competition so wonder if FFP does not have the short field of view necessary for ranging targets.

    Nidaho I wish I could help you there . But you could put everything I know about field target on the period at the end of this sentence and still have left over room .

    I’d be interested in knowing as well. I ordered a 3-15×42 ffp (thanks Joe?) with the intention of trying some FT after the snow melts. Didn’t think to inquire about its ranging ability.      Uj

    Just purchased a 3-15×42.  I almost bought one used a few days ago.
    by waiting i saved plus I got brand new scope.
    I have had a fixed 10 for a few years  I  have been well pleased.

    Joe, thanks for the honest reply. I don’t have the final answer yet, but the little info I’ve dug up suggests that FFP increases depth of field.
    This reduces the ability to range accurately. Good feature for hunting. Kinda sad because apart from that FFP is very nice.

    FFP is more for the hunter. On ffp scopes, the reticle changes thickness so, it is not always optimal for target shooting.  High magnification it can be too thick.  Also, target shooters almost always dial turrets (no hold over & estimating wind and elevation in blank no-man’s land) therefore, ffp does not matter.  That’s what I was told. Make sense?

    Joe, thanks for the tip on the sale. I pulled the trigger on a 3x15x42 FFP. Now I’m playing musical chairs with my scopes. Question is, what do you think about a Athlon Argos 6x24x50 on a springer ie. HW95 or HW97? Athlon says it is shock proof,but ???

    The Athlons I’ve had held up great ! Plus they have really good customer service which is HUGE when you shoot springers

    How is it?! I almost pulled the trigger on it for my WARP but my 10x performs so good I couldn’t see myself selling it to fund it. Is it really that good???

    I’m just getting to know it now. It’s very sharp, but I think my eye (right) is giving me problems. I looked through it lefty and was super sharp, then I took a shot and was spot on! As for one vs the other, I don’t know as I don’t have the 10x. I also have a Sightron that is very sharp as well. I think I’m liking this one the more I use it.
