The 3-12 x 44 SWAT is different glass than the 3-12 x 40 AO.... They have had several models of the SWAT over the years.... I had one of the early ones, and was very disappointed with it.... First of all, it was more like a 4.5-12, the field of view was limited on low power.... and secondly, it wasn't near as bright on low power as the 3-9 x 32 I had.... They may have improved it with later models, I've never bought another.... The sidewheel is a nice feature, the extra weight isn't.... and I'm gunshy of getting another after my first experience, especially with the higher price tag....

The 4-16 x 40 AO is pretty good.... At the highest powers, there seems to be a bit of glare.... I don't know if a sunshade would help that, the store where I bought the scope didn't have them anyway.... but it kind of looks like internal glare/reflections to me.... The IR has the glare from the LEDs typical of all the Leapers I have had with an IR.... although it does have dimmer settings than others I have had.... IMO, the IR is a gimmick, not worth the extra weight.... It does have 9 MilDots per side (10 if you count the post) which is good for long ranges on high power.... I'd like to see how your 3-12 x 40 AO IR compares alongside the 4-16.... I have a feeling the higher magnifications are not worth the extra weight, and the glare may be related to that as well....

bob

i havent noticed any glare with my 3-12, and the IR at first i thought was useless but i use it on the lowest brightness for the green light and it doesnt glare at all. i was worried about the reports i had heard of the sight picture going blurry on the 4-16's as you reach the 16x so i opted for the 3-12 and i have a great sight picture thats sharp and clear even around the edges on 12x.

i think i took some pictures looking through the scope on 4x and 12x.. let me check if i did i will pm them to you, dont want to hijack your thread into a scope thread.

looks like an awesome gun. i have the same scope and must have gotten lucky because its clearer and more precise than my dads 4-12 hawke airmax.
 and im really looking forward to seeing just how much you can get from that gun.

Gotta ask bob, why not the .25cal  BT65. It does what you want right out of the box.

The size and weight.... The BT65 weighs nearly the same without a scope as mine complete.... In Canada, both come as an under 500 fps rifle, but that's just a simple valve stem change....

More valuable still are the ones who go to the trouble of making me see it.

I'm a peaceful man and prefer the pursuit of peaceful sports.  Those involving teams and balls of any sort tend to be deleterious to one's body and promote violence by both spectators and participants.   The shooting sports, however, tend to promote self control and are peaceably participated in by those who know that their greatest challenge is their need to continually hone their own abilities.

I was getting ready to ask why so low fps!  Then I remembered where your from!  I hate that in some countries guns are so limited in their potential due to crazy laws!
