I bought this scope after reading several reviews about it,and since nobody around here carried Sightron scopes that was all I had to go on.
When it arrived,I examined it closely and was impressed by all the features it had. It is a well built scope,a 1pc 30mm tube,50mm Objective lens,Indefinite Side Focus,Resettable Target Turrets w/covering Caps-I like that,no more accidental scope movement,Nice smooth turning Eye focus & Magnification Ring that is clearly marked.
The first thing I noticed when looking through this scope was how Clear & Bright everything looked. This scope has some good glass & coatings on it.
From 6x all the way to 24x power this thing is cristal clear,the Side focus works great,for parallux focusing.
This is a Mildot reticle scope,so ranging with it is no problem if you can do math in your head,or cheat with a calculator for others.
The scopes not canted,it's just hard to hold a rifle and get a good pic of the reticle.
The scope passed the box test,perfectly,the turrets turn a little easier than I like,but had nice audible clicks.And with the turret caps on,you won't worry about the turrets getting turned by accident.The scope has great repeatability,when turning the turrets.
I really like this scope,and for what you get in it,and the quality of the optics it is well worth the price.It will hang right with the Swarovski Pro Hunter scope that I have,and cost almost 2.5x less.
Sightron scopes have a Lifetime warranty,and if you have a problem,they just send you a brand new scope.Not a bad warranty in my book!
Now this isn't a Cheap scope,most places sell it for $800+,but if you look you can find it cheaper,I bought this one less,but the prices must have increased because they raised the price.But I have found it for $735,and I'm getting another one for my Savage 10FCP 308.
If you are looking for a long range target scope,take a look at the Sightron SIII,you'll like what you see. THB
