Currently, Sightron scopes come with 'target' turrets. Which is to say they have covers that screw on over the elevation and windage turrets. For 2011 they are coming out with a 'tactical' turret that does not have a cover on it. I like the tactical turrets because I don't like the covers on the targets turrets (one more thing to lose or damage).
The other thing that is cool that Sightron is introducing is an MOA reticle rather than mil-dot. I'm not wild about their MOA reticle though as they put a dot in the center of the crosshair. If they develop a reticle that is more to my liking, you can bet that I will sell my MK4s and replace them with SIII. I do not think the new Sightron turrets have zero-stops.
You can see the new 6-24x50 here:

Their new scopes are due to be released for sale soon.
You can call Sightron directly (as I did several weeks ago) and get one of their technical experts on the phone. They can go over all the specs of their new scopes in detail. They will also take your suggestions for improvements/preferences.
