Re: Why isn\'t anyone useing the SIII SIGHTRON 6-24x50 side focus

Reed;
I look forward to testing the scopes. I will have several 338 snipe-tac rifles for testing. I am building two ultra light single shots for long range hunting in Wyo. Ultra light, well maybe for this round anyway. We are trying to hit the sub 11# range. Ti action, carbon bbl and stock. I just finished a all stainless barreled action with carbon stock, it came in at 13.25# with the above materials i should be able to shave off at least 3.5#.

Dave

I can't build a 22 dasher under 11 lbs, let alone a fire breathing monster like that. A good tank style break will be a must on that rifle. With a ti action and carbon fiber barrel with a 338 -408 tac improved is about the most advnced long range big boomer a man can build. I'm sure it will work out. Keep in touch

Sightron replaced my scope with a new one. With no hassle at all. They had a shipment of bad glass, from what i understand. My new is very clear, adjustiments very good, and side focus workds great. I don't think there is a better scope for the money. I am very happy know [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Iím kind of curious how a bad shipment of glass ever got past quality control? Did they send out or publish a recall anywhere so everyone affected could get a new scope? If it was just bad glass why didn't they simply fix it? Arenít Sightron's serviceable? It sounds like a lot of bad scopes were shipped and they are only fixing the ones where people are complaining.

This is my favorite!

I checked with MidSouth, and they plan on investigating/feeling Sightron out this fall. They may become another stocking vendor for Sightron's products. I am waiting to hear back from them to see if and how much.

SIII SIGHTRON 6-24x50mm Mil-dot side focus

I'm using it. Best scope on the market for the money in my opinion. Better than some that cost much more. The second generation SIIIs have better glass than the first, from what I've read. The glass is outstanding in the second generation SIIIs. I'm done with 2 lb scopes for pack hunting. I've got two that weight 29 oz and that's too much for me. I hope they expand their line of reticle offerings, and I'd like to see a 4-16X power range. But I can't continue to wait so my order is in for another SIII 6-24x50mm Mil-dot reticle.
