Long range scope

by CWL, from United States, TX Written on December 31, 2014
I purchased this scope for a DPMS 308 to reach out to 1k. My previous scope was a Nikon Monarch 6-24x50, and I ran out of elevation at 600 yard. I also have a Sightron 10-50x60 on a 300 WSM (military dot) with a 20 mm picatanny rail with high Talley tactical scope mounts. The Talley mounts were not available when I orded the scope so I opted for the same Burris mounts used on the Nikon, just in 30mm. They worked great and would recommend them for a low recoil caliber. I mounted the scope and went to the range with no issues for sighting in. When I went to the 1k, the 32x became grainy and on the 10-50x60 this did not occur until the 40 plus power. So I opted to return the scope and trade up to 10-50x60mm. For a cost up of roughly $200....
Pros:
  • Pricing against other options
  • cost, quality
  • reticle
Cons:
  • Long tube
  • grainy at full power
Best Used for:
  • long range shooting
Would recommend: Yes

Good scope for the money

by Mike J, from United States, IN Written on December 22, 2014
I ordered this scope as my first Sightron scope. I compared it directly with my Nightforce scopes. It compares very favorably in the first shooting. It has very clear glass, the reticle is very good for 1000 yard shooting. The adjustments seem to be very repeatable when running the elevation out to 1000 and back to 100. The eye relief is better than my 8x32 Nightforce, Good scope, I would recommend this scope as a Nightforce alternative....

Objective focus not calibrated

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on May 8, 2013
The Objective focus os only calibrated at infinity. It will be necessary to calibrate the objective to assure parallax-free use.
Pros: bright, sharp image; 1/8 MOA adjustment...
Would recommend: Yes

SIIISS832X56LRMOA

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 25, 2013
I mounted this on a savage LRP .243
I really bought it for another gun and thought it was to much scope for the application, but I am happy with it and will order another. I do not have any 8x32's to do a side by side comparison, but I have many leupolds, nikons, a vortex and a swaroski. For the price I think sightons are hard to beat, its my second sightron and they make great scopes...

Sightron SIII 8-32x56 MOA/MOA

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, ND Written on December 18, 2012
These scopes have fantastic glass, great resolution, color, even in low light this optic impressed me. Tracked true, returned to zero, I didn't see a shift in POI when adjusting power, turrets are a stout thud, no mush.
Pros: Light, Exposed turrets, accurate adjustments, holds zero, fantastic glass
Cons: Turrets could use a locking feature...
Would recommend: Yes

Great Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MA Written on November 21, 2012
I purchased this scope to replace my Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50 because I wanted a higher power rifle scope. The glass on the Sightron SIII is definitely a step above the Vortex PST. Its extremely clear and I really like the MOA Dot Reticle. The side focus is very tight but nothing you can't deal with. Eye relief is perfect right under 4". It is mounted to a heavy barreled AR-15 with Magpul PRS stock. Windage and Elevation knobs have very firm clicks, 1/4moa, and tracked perfectly shooting a box at 100 yards. All in all I'm extremely happy with this scope and would recommend it to anyone who is considering purchasing.
Pros: Very Clear Glass, Tracks well, Firm clicks, Good eye relief
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes
