    From what i hear the yanks love them i wanted one really badly but SWFA does'nt ship out of the US
    I settled with a Nikko 10x42 which is awesome.

    Those scopes are based on the old tasco Sniper scopes btw.
    Was sold in the UK under edgar brothers extremely popular there as well if I were you id get one.

    The Nikko is clearer and crisper has smoother clicks and low profile turrents,
    the MTC however is slightly brighter due to the fact that the object is bigger 44mm compared to 42mm.

    The Lynx by the way is the same as the Nikko l(ike the big nikko/big lynx) but at R4500 the mtc is the better choice by far.

    Overall MTC hold's it own against many scopes twice its price, build quality, optics and value are unbeatable but thats just my 2cents.

    Yes but MTC is not used by US security forces in Iraq and Afganistan yet You can't go and show off to your buddies that you have the same scope as the US security forces. That's what sells SWFA scopes.

    Avi... I prefered SS 10x42 becoz the reputation on review and pricing. since it's .50cal rated which can rugged enough to take a lots of abuse... another reason... the rear focus is nice...

    I also have the nikko 10x42 and am very happy with the scope so far. From what i have seen on the intenet it is identical to the super sniper/tascoits only the ocula bell thats smooth on the nikko. They are all made in Japan proberly in the same factory maybe by Hakko anyway a lot of scopes are made in the same factory and just badged differently.
