    Swift scopes

    Model 665M

    Just picked one up for $25. Anyone know about these? Had never heard of them myself.

    I've had 2 for about 3 years.I believe they are the Reliant model. Nice clear glass and good light transmission. Used at dusk view through the scope is brighter than with your eyes. No problems whatsoever and have used them pretty hard. Think they were on sale for $105 in the 3X9. I would buy again if they were on sale again. Pretty close in clearness and focusing as my Nikon Buckmaster 1 better than the new Buckmaster 2 which I don't care for.

    Worth what they cost. Will never be confused with a S&B.

    Swift is known for other optic products like telescopes. I read several years ago they were one of the better buys in rifle scopes.

    They are decent scopes for the money. I have a Swift 4X pistol scope(SR661M) on a 14" 44Mag Contender, 1000's of cast boolits downrange with it with nary a problem. For 25 bucks...you got a steal.

    I have a few swift scopes first one fogged up on me carried it back to the gun shop they gave me another one on the spot. Several years later I got another swift that was on a rifle my son picked up and the scope would not zero. I contacted swift paid shipping to them and around a week I got a brand new scope in the mail. Lady on the phone told me it was it was not abused they would take care of it. I have several brands of scopes and optics I just try to get the most for my money and 25 bucks was a good day for you Sir.
    Reloading to save money I am sure the saving is going to start soon
