I have but you have to make sure they have it in stock. They seem to be slow on back ordered items. Their CS is decent.

That is good to hear Paincave, I have been a little worried since they have not sent me a email conformation yet. I put the order in over the phone this morning.
BTW you still have the sharpest pistol case I have ever seen.

Just received a Sightron 12x42 fixed from them yesterday. Took a little over a week to get here. They sent tracking number when shipped. Am I happy? You bet, scope was Reg price $540. Marked down to $299 and $100 on top of that. My cost $199!!

16X on closeout @ $379 from $577. Sorry no rebate on that one. Am really trying hard not to pull the trigger on the 3x9x42 with target crooshairs for my A-bolt 270. Can get that on the same closeout deal and rebate for $199 as well

I got the Sightron 6x24x42 with the mil-dot for the 204. Then I am hoping I can scratch enough funds up to get a 17WSM when they come out, to put the 6x32x50 Bushnell that Im taking off the 204 on.

I had a horrible experience with them. Ordered a Zeiss scope that had a rebate until 12/31/12. They told me it was on backorder but that Zeiss would honor the rebate if the order was placed. After January 1st, I contacted them again after not hearing anything and they told me that they had not gotten enough in to fill the orders they had and would not be getting anymore. Therefore, I did not get the scope and I could not get the rebate anymore from another dealer because it was after Jan. 1st. They also offered nothing else other than to order another model at full price with no rebate. At the advice of some others on here, I went to Cameralandny.com and got my xeiss scope. Will not deal with SWFA again. Hope your experience is better.

Could not resist any longer. Went ahead and ordered the 3x9x42.

Be very careful dealing with SWFA. They bill your credit card the instant you place the order whether item is in stock or not. If you cancel the order before it actually ships it is VERY difficult to get them to refund your money. I have been trying to get a refund for quite a while now and all I have gotten so far has been excuses. The scopes that carry the SWFA name are as good as they come but their business practices not so much.

I bought 6 zeiss and minox scopes from them and transaction went perfect. I will definitely buy from them again.

I contacted them today for the first time, some how they got my email address wrong by 1 letter. They put a notice for the amount of the money on my card when I ordered it, and charged it today. It is on the way with tracking infor and everything. I have no trouble with them yet, sofar so good.

Two weeks ago I order Sightron scope from SWFA. My credit card was charged that day AFTER I received confrimation of the order. 4 days later I received shipping confirmation and tracking info. 4 working days later the scope arrived. I would prefer that card not be charged untill shipment takes place but have no real complaint IF product is in stock and ships in reasonable time.

For what they are selling Sightron Scopes for on closeout I dont care if they charge my card before I order it, as long as I get it. Which so far I have got one last week and another will be here Monday.
