Ask 100 shooters/ hunters what they want in a rimfire scppe.

I wonder how many would prefer a leupy 3 X 9 X 33 AO.

I have enough of those ...and they are OK in their mediocrity.

I prefer Kahles AH series. The SWFA are Clunkers. Big and Clunky.

Been there, done that, and all it accomplished was draining the corporate coffers, again, and rid us of all that pesky hard-copy documentation that we only used like nearly every day. Oh yeah, almost forgot, the night shift had to rearrange their schedules and screw up their lives in general so they could attend the stupid-azz seminars.

Just another scam like multi-level marketing.

It's all about hanging that banner on the building. Had my first I-S-O indoctrination in about 1993. I was in my mid 20's, and reported back to my boss that it was a gang of ex Alliant Tech engineers using scare tactics. My view hasn't changed. "The doors will close on you". "You won't be allowed to do business with any other companies".

We used to call them ISO mercenaries. Like stated above, people get the necessary experience, then become part of the pyramid.

It's nothing more than re-labeled TQM. Ain't much quality related about it either. It's just paper. For some real fun, take a look at some EN certs, and what they require.

I apologize to the OP for the off topic rant. Good to know others see the ISO flush for what it is.

Lots of people wandering around gun shows here (when they still had them) for the last few years bragging about or looking for under $150 6-24x scopes for their elk rifles.

And every show had a table or two of NcSTAR scopes with a crowd around them.

Never been to a Yard Birds show. Often went to the fairgrounds show, and Vancouver and Portland. Portland Expo shows are the ones with lots of cheap Chinese scope tables. I guess those dealers don't go to the little shows.

I happily hunted with a Leupold Vari xii 2-7 for many years. Then I compared it side by side with a Bushnell Elite 2-7 which replaced it.

Now the Leupold sits on an old used and abused Savage 23-C in 32-20. Mostly Bushnell 4200's on my main deer rifles.

SWFA may not be out of business, but it sure as hell is hard to buy one of their scopes.


The shipments from China take awhile.


They're made in Japan, not China.

I was a bit disappointed with the tracking of my last Z3 3-9x36. Lovely little scope, but it took longer to sight in than any Leupold I've ever tried (about 20). Ditto for my one and only Meopta.

What's with all poseur Larry's scopes wearing buttplugs? Not mounted on a rifle, he must be sitting on them.
