Re: New sightron LRMOA?
I think for the money it's a good deal.
Personally, I have a couple small reservations about the scope (same exact one pictured from earlier post) but they are not deal breakers.
The parallax/SF knob is very sensitive on mine. Very slightest smallest movement of the dial and the image focus changes alot. This is something I've not experienced with any other scope I own.
Some say they prefer the optics on the Sightron SIII's better than their Leupolds.........I feel a little different. I feel that the optics on my Leupold Mark4 are better than the Sightron. But the Sightron seems comparable to some of the VariX-III's I've got (the older ones).
It seems the crispness/sharpness of the reticle changes when I change power on the Sightron, which I never noticed happening on the Leupold, or any other scope I've got for that matter. But, I've only seen it under low light........when outdoors under sunny skies, it doesn't seem to be an issue.
Last fall I was sitting on a hillside facing north in the evening after sunset. When I turned and looked west into the reddish light, everything appeared orange through the Sightron, like an orange flood light was in my eyes. I don't recall ever seeing this on any other scope, but I didn't have another scope with me at the time to compare side/side. I did have some Leupold 10X Binos with me and they didn't exhibit that orange fade when looking west. I could still see the landscape through the Binos, but I couldn't see anything but orange through the Sightron on 24X.
The reticle seems to be accurate at 2 moa and I've used it out to 600 yds for shots on my steel plates. I haven't dialed the adjustments a whole lot so far but from what little I have done, they seem good to go.
Optically speaking only, for roughly the same price; I'd personally buy another Zeiss Conquest........Adjustment wise, Sightron may have the edge though.?? I just don't have enough fair side/side comparison tests through my Zeiss vs my Sightron to say for sure which would be superior in the adjustment department, but exact tracking has been Sightrons "claim to fame" for a long time.
Again, even with my small reservations, I think it's probably a good deal for the money.
