SightMark Triple Duty 8.5-25x50

by BOB, from United States, CA Written on February 17, 2015
I have not had the chance to completely test this with the true test of time. So far it has been a good value for the money. Having weaker eyes and needed more magnification power. The scope mounts are not that great and if mounted on any AR platform with free float forend there is not enough room to put the covers on. I will eventually change mounts to a higher profile. I assume if tapered such as a bolt action rifle it would be fine. The turrets seem to work fine so far on a .308 set up. The locking system is ok, but wish the ability to reset zero was easier. I bought in comparison to a Vortex crossfire. The Vortex glass is definitely clearer....

No adjustment no hold of adjustment

by Robert, from United States, MO Written on February 13, 2015
I bought this rifle scope to go on my weatherby 338 lapua mk5 threat response rifle and guess what it failed it would not get a bore sight zero out of the box and it would not after repeated adjustments get on target or if it got close after one round it was not there next time a waste of my money Leatherwood is the deal for long guns and heavy caliber dont give these people your hard earned money...........

I was impressed

by Mikey, from United States, IN Written on February 12, 2015
Put this on a Remington 700 .308 for my first bolt action rifle/ long range shooting. For getting into long range I have hit out to 500 with this scope. For the money you can't beat it. I would suggest it for a budget build. I have since done a different build with a Leopold and Nikon. It is a close comparison when you talk 200 to a 1000. I still use it to this day on other rifles....

Fantastic Scope

by senderoguy, from United States, MD Written on February 1, 2015
I have been shooting high powe small caliber rifles for years, mostly varmint and long range targets. I own several quality rifles, all in small caliber, 243 being the largest. My earlier rifles have Burris, Leuopold, and Nlkon optics, all of which are capable of 1/4" 5 shot groupings. I recently purchased the Sightmark just on a whim and put it on a 22-250 Remington Sendero. I was pleasantly surprised by this scope. It allows me to group 1/4" shots @100 yds. I have also bagged a coyote at 700 yds and several groundhogs at 600 yds +. I just bought a 220 Swift Sendero, I will be putting a Sightmark on top of that one as well!...

Great scope, great price

by Midahu, from United States, WI Written on January 27, 2015
Exactly what I needed for my AR build. Great scope for target shooting out to 500 yards (farthest I have gone). Nice reticle and so far holds zero. Finish is a nice flat black and scope has solid construction. No cheap materials anywhere. Will definitely order more scopes for the rest of my rifles!...
Pros:
  • Price
Cons:
  • none so far
Best Used for:
  • Target/ Range
Would recommend: Yes

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....
