Sightron Scopes

What are your opinions of the Sightron scopes? Will they withstand the recoil of a magnum rifle over a period of time? Who has the best prices on them?

I hear a lot of good things about them on the rimfire forums, but I need to know from someone who has experience with a little more recoil than a .22

Thanks in advance.

Take care,

Just another beautiful day in paradise!

Re: Sightron Scopes

Big thumbs up to Sightron based on my experience w/their 4-16x42 on a .308. Thousands of rounds. The best, most repeatable adjustments of any scope I have ever used.

Google for vendors, but maybe start w/Bear Basin, or put a WTB ad out there with your requirements. You might get lucky.
it's not about need in the USA -- it's about WANT

Re: Sightron Scopes

I'd suggest using the Forum Search at the top of the screen, the question has been asked about Sightron scopes a lot of times. Mr. Haler has had excellent results w/ his; I'm currently less than enthused w/ mine. It's all been dug up, buried again, etc.

Re: Sightron Scopes

I've got a 6-25 that's probably 50% clearer than my Burris 4-16. .243 bullet holes @ 250y are visible. I got mine on sale from Nazchez for $300 on sale (regularly $400). I haven't shot it off of the 300 WBY I bought it for... I haven't found high enough rings yet.
