True, you can dial it down from 24x, but you can't from 6x. In the kind of hunting I do, 6x is too high for some of the close ranges I get into in the timber. Ideally 3x, the most 4.5x for timber shots.

Re: PST comparible scope

The Sightron SIII is way better than "decent". They just came out with a new MOA reticle model that doesn't have turret caps, nice big knobs. These guys have them in stock SIIISS624X50LRMOA sightron sIII 6-24x50LRMOA

Re: PST comparible scope

Man I must have gotten super lucky. My buddy told me about the Vortex PST about 9am yesterday and I drove over to Wholesale Sports in Salem, OR and bought one off the shelf. Vortex PST 6-24x50 for $719.99, couldn't see any difference in the glass between this one and a $2100 Swakorski next to it when I looked through them. Incredible scope and the price makes it impossible to pass up. On another note, I did find 3 Sightron III's in 6-24x50 at Philomath Gun Shop in Philomath, OR for $449 each if those help anyone out.

I think the Sightron 6-24x50mm is a SFP scope I believe.

I guess you will need the 4-16x then.

I garuntee you those Sightron's you found for $450 were SII's not the SIII models. Two very different scopes in quality and price.
