Swift Optics was formed in 1926 in Colorado. Since that time, they have been making good quality optical devices that are used in a number of different sports and fields. Like most optical companies, they provide a assorted variety of optical products like riflescopes, binoculars, and spotting scopes. Swift has various rifle and pistol scopes that will cover just about any hunting or shooting application.

Swift Scope

Swift breaks their scope offerings down into two groups: the SwiftReliant family and the SwiftPremier family. Both series are substantially different. The SwiftReliant is an entry level series of 7 scopes that includes both fixed and variable powered models.  All the variable powered models within the Reliant series are produced in a 3X9 variable configuration. The SwiftReliant is designed for the budget minded or occasional hunter that wants a scope that performs without breaking the bank.

If the SwiftReliant doesn’t offer the power or options that you prefer, consider looking into the SwiftPremier series.  This series offers 24 variable powered models that range from a 2.5 power up to an 8X32X50. The higher grade Premier models feature a higher quality of lens that allows more light transmission and a clearer sight picture.If you happen to be in the market for a great scope, try to SwiftPremier 671M.  This model features a huge 50mm objective which allows as much light as possible into the scope.  The 3X9 adjustable power is great for close to medium range shooting. If you prefer a longer distance model, consider the Swift 672M. It’s 6-18×50 adjustable objective has more than enough power for most long distance shooting.

The major differences between the two different families include the fact that SwiftPremier models come with a lifetime warranty versus SwiftReliant models have a 2 year limited warranty. The SwiftPremier models also feature better glass, better components, and a higher quality sight picture.

Swift also offers a pistol scope line that features 6 different scopes at various low powered settings.  Each features the extended eye relief needed for pistol scopes and a wide field of view.

Although many U.S. based shooters may not have heard of Swift Optics, they still offer a good product at a good price.  Can you buy better? Yes. Can you buy worse? Absolutely.  The Swift is a nice middle of the road alternative for a shooter who wants nice optics at a reasonable price.

If you don’t see the Swift rifle scope that you are looking for, please consider utilizing the “search” feature located in the top right hand corner as we may have the model that you are seeking featured somewhere else on our site.
