Excellent on my 308 for the price

by Mikey, from United States, IN Written on January 4, 2015
I live in indiana where you go blind in your scope during this time of the year from the snow. Bought a sunshade and this scope has done very well. Have had no problem hitting targets out to 700. Very clear in my opinion. If your looking for a value scope right here it is. Holds zero. Easy to sight in. Very good construction. Dropped the dang thing on the driveway and put it back on. Still had zero so very durable in my book....

excellent scope

by john, from United States, VA Written on January 1, 2015
Scope is rugged and almost as clear as my 550 dollar millet scope. Side parallax focus is great for critter hunting. Got it on a savage mark 2 fvsr .22. Holds zero perfectly. Dont know how it handles large calibers but the locking turrents are very tight and the moa clicks are very crisp and accurate. Buy new scope rings when you buy this scope. The ones that come with it are cheap and too high. I bought a set of medium and low and ended up using the low rings....
Pros:
  • very clear optics and precise adjustments
Cons:
  • scope rings are ceap and too high

Tremendous value: delivers consistent results with modest features

by O.Coles, from United States, NV Written on December 5, 2014
A tremendous value on sale for $180, the Sightmark Triple Duty 8.5-25x50 Riflescope delivers consistent results with modest features. The package contains the Sightmark SM13011 scope with 1/8" MOA adjustments and mil-dot reticle, flip-up lens caps (identical to Butler Creek products), a pair of lightweight 30mm tall stamped-aluminum scope rings, a small micro-fiber cleaning cloth, and a user guide with mil-dot scale.

For recreational shooters this is the ideal scope for fixed known-distance targets: dial onto target and make ultra-fine adjustments. Both wind and elevation turrets offer 0 to 7-1/2 MOA per rotation in 1/8 increments, before a four-click (1/2 MOA) dead-space restart between the 7 and 0 marks. Absent a zero-stop, the dead space gap makes keeping track of turns past zero difficult and meaningless. It also makes the scope virtually impossible to record accurate elevation DOPE (data of previous engagement). I have a slip-on turret ring that fixes this for the second rotation, but Sightmark should have done it right the first time. Since I'm using this for a 600-yard F-Class rifle, it won't matter a bit.

The included rings should work well on small caliber and semi-autos rifles, but I wouldn't trust them to resist sliding on bolt rifles of .243 caliber and larger. The rings aren't concentrically trued, so don't expect a perfect mating surface with the scope's tube. Further, the scopes has a 2.13" erector housing for the turrets, and popular AR-15 mounts like the Bu...

sightmark tactical riflescope

by bob k, from United States, OH Written on November 21, 2014
was easy to install and set up, I used this on a shotgun at a indoor outlaw card shoot. The illuminated dot was a nice change for shooting indoors. Was very visible and the different colors was a nice contrast for shooting at the red card. The on/off switch is placed in a very user trendily place....

On my .308 but what's up with the mil dot config

by Tiresias, from United States, TX Written on November 2, 2014
Great scope for price and matches my rem 700 SPS tactical perfectly. Sight picture is clean and the scope is heavy duty. I am still having trouble figuring out the mil dots as they don't seem to match other standard configurations. They say the mil dots are standard NATO but I can't find any reference for a standard NATO....

500 plus round downrange.

by chris, from United States, OH Written on September 20, 2014
I rarely review items but I felt this qualified. I now have atleast 500 plus rounds thru my 308 with this scope. I have it on a savage 308 trophy hunter. I cannot speak for the rings that are included with this scope. They looked cheap and I never used them. I use Burris rings almost every time. The scope holds zero on a pretty heavy recoil gun for 500 plus rounds. IT is just as clear as my other big name scopes. I would have to say it is good to go. Now I just came home from the range. The illumination switch with battery in it completely blew off the scope, its done. I played with the illumination some and it seemed nice but I never really shot with it, so no big loss to me. I will glue it on to make it cosmetically appealing again. The side focus seems to have a lot of slop in the dial. I cannot remember how long its been like that. It stays put, but feels cheap. Over all I think this is a good scope for the money. Optics Planet is always great to deal with. I belive that with a semi auto or a smaller cartridge gun this scope would be ideal. I would buy another for a .223 or similar. However I would not put it on anything bigger than a .308...
Pros:
  • Holds zero
  • Clear, bright optics
Cons:
  • rings are cheap
  • illumination swtich broke off
Best Used for:
  • medium calibers

It's Okay.

by mach33, from United States, MI Written on August 30, 2014
I purchased two of these items.
PROS: Optical clarity, brightness, were all very nice. Cross hairs on this are amazingly thin and mil-dot pin points. Exactly what I wanted. Turrent are 1/8" moa and easy to get to and operate. Illuminated mil-dots are very nice. Illumination levels were just right. Not too bright nor too dim.
CONS: missing two scope ring screws, one scope ring stud was stripped. magnification not as expected compared to an inexpensive simons whitetail 50mm scope. Biggest disappointment was neither scopes would zero properly or hold after an adjustment. Also no diopter adjustment for those with corrected vision. I cant shoot with glasses on.

Only spent one day on range with them on new rifles. Will go out and spend more time and update review. Not very good quality controll or high quality. But features per price is a balancing act. I am undecided on the recommendation but leaning towards no....

Good Starter Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on June 3, 2014
I used this scope on my Savage 10fcp chambered in .308. The clarity of the glass at high magnification did not impress me. However, at this price range and with the features included, this scope is worth it for plinking any day. I recommend purchasing new rings for this scope. The rings that come with the scope are terrible.
Pros: Many features for its price range.
Cons: Glass quality could be much better....

Good Scope for the Money

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, TX Written on February 12, 2014
I have this scope mounted on a Weatherby Vanguard II 25-06. It has hled zero and I have taken a few deer with it. It may be too much zoom for what I use it for but my eyes are getting old and I need all the help I can get.
Pros: Low Price vs. Features, Holds Zero
Cons: Glass a little cloudy at full zoom but usable...

Awesome Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on December 12, 2013
The scope is great. I put it on my Savage .308 and looks great. Very easy to sight in and took it out to about 160 - 165 yards which was about as far as I could go at the time but the scope can easy see further than that. It's a great functional scope for the price I have and will highly recommend it to anyone.
Pros: Clear glass, great focus, great at distance.
Cons: none...
