HI bird lovers! Have some binocs that it seems are great (1 Viewer)


I was about to sell on ebay or other site the old binoculars I've had for many many years, and googled them. (they were from my husbands father) It brought me to this website as it seems many birdwatchers love this vintage brand and model, and if they are great for bird watching I'd love to have them sell to someone who will truly enjoy them.

It appears they are SWIFT Sport King Mark 1, 7 x 35 Extra wide field (600ft at 1000 yds). Model # 704. It says on there Fully Coated and Amber Coated Optics U.V. Coating Swift.

Are these good for birdwatchers? I read a few threads that makes me think they might be?? If anyone knows please let me know! Thanks!

Hi Debbie,

Here is what new entry level 7x35 Porro Prism Binoculars made by Nikon cost. They are Chinese made.

https://www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-products/product/binoculars/aculon-a211-8x42.html. ($79.95)

https://www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-products/product/binoculars/action-extreme-7x35-atb.html (129.95)

Yours has a wider field of view and some collector value that has not been determined yet.

Here is one listed on e-bay for $239.00. I don't know if it is yours or not. If it has no problems and can be promptly used it seems like a bargain!
