With its short eye relief, the SWAT Prismatic ‘sits back’ further than any other scope, leaving plenty of mounting rail to allow headache-free attachment of all kinds of Night Vision fittings. Its multi-faceted SCB2 crosshair can also be illuminated at the push of a button, and comes with brightness control to suit all lighting situations. The field of view from its 50mm front lens is three times more than a conventional scope. Put another way: here we have a 12x magnification scope that has the same field of view as a ‘conventional’ scope dialled into just 4x power. Just as amazing is the 12×50’s light-gathering credentials. It sucks in more light than any comparable 12x scope, making it a top choice for shooting in low-light situations. Size-wise, the stacked prismatic lenses of the SWAT 12×50 means it measures up at just 156mm – significantly shorter than, say, MTC’s ever-popular Mamba model (at 370mm). Complete with MTC’s magnetic flip cover and a cool new mount that features integral tilt adjustment to achieve close to optimum optical zero – before even dialling-in the scope’s turrets – the SWAT Prismatic is a scope that’s totally unlike any other available in the shooting optics world.
