After researching and determining that the SWFA SS 1-4x24 Tac scope is THE one. I ordered and...they are on backorder. Went back to research again for an alternate and it only confirmed that's the one I want. Very bummed out. While looking I noticed that there seems to be a history of backorder for these. Customer service at SWFA was great, but they had no estimate on when.

Can anyone share what their wait time was while on backorder. Maybe that will help ease (or make worse) my immediate gratification gene :)  While I'm at it...the only other option I considered is the Vortex Viper PST 1-4x24. Should I wait on the SWFA ?

Thanks for the input.

Waiting builds character, and you should wait.

It will be worth it once you have it in hand.

Yes I would wait for the SS. There is a reason they are so very popular!

I would imagine they'd have some in before black friday for sure... but then again.  they are at the mercy of their supplier and customs.


SS is worth the wait over the vortex, IMO
