I have sent back two S111 scopes to them and had them install the new Zero Stop Turret on them. Really like it. That was only thing the sightron was lacking.

Anyone actuall seen one of these in the wild yet? I always thought the lack of a zero stop was the only thing keeping the SIII from being the perfect scope for a LR hunting rig. Hopefully they get to market quick!

That's a great update. The SIII is a very good long range optic with excellent tracking, especially at their price. Now if they will offer it with 1 moa reticle + the zero stop, they'll have a winner.

There was a guy who makes them on here and Accurate Shooter also, Machined to your spec and has a little port out the front. They are pretty easy to make out of a plastic washer.

I have seen those, the only thing that kept me from going that route is you would have to get a new one if you ever changed loads right? The factory style looks like it's headed and can easily be moved up and down with load changes.

Correct, but for $20, what the heck. Also it's simple to make you own with the nylon washers for Lowe's/Depot and just grind it a little thinner or add one if you change loads/zero.

I enjoyed the above comments. I emailed sightron mentioning a 1moa reticle also. They asked if I could accurately hold 1moa in the wind. Lol

I have had the SIII with zero stop for a couple months now. So far it’s proving to be a great scope. Clarity is good and the clicks are crisp, not sloppy. I was concerned with durability but after beating the hell out of it attached to my rhino the zero held true. The sight has returned to zero after numerous occasions of shooting out to 800 yards with no concerns.
The zero stop is easy to use and has held tight. It’s a collar with set screws that screws up to but against the turret. Much like a reloading die. Simple and easy.
My only complaint is I dislike how the turrets are locked into place by a single screw. It makes zeroing difficult
Overall great scope for the money and I look forward to seeing how it can hold up while I continue to beat it up. I primary use it for Coues Deer hunting in the high desert and that terrain is not forgiving.

I hope this helps someone out.
