Nothing beats getting behind a rifle and checking optics out, I would try to find a forum member near to you that would help you out.

I actually did not have the sunshade on when I saw the glare. I put the sunshade on and reduced the power and the glare went away.

Ditto. For the price I have loved my Sightron, and I had a Viper HS that was an excellent scope for the $400 I paid for it. They both have things I don't like about them, but the pros more than make up for the cons in my mind, which is why I've owned both.
