    Sightron scope

    Hi,
    I've currently got a Swarovski 8x50 on my .22lr but fancy something with more mag for target shooting. I'm thinking of something along the lines of a sightron 6-24x50 but don't want to compromise on decent glass. What's the general view of sightron and how does the glass compare to "top" glass?

    Cheers

    Gary

    Good glass , I once had a bigsky and was very happy with the scope and glass

    I use a Swaro 4 power to good effect - I don't see why more is needed unless you're shooting benchrest.

    Because you can't see how your grouping at 100yrds on 4x mag without a spotting scope, well not unless you've got superhuman vision you can't anyway.

    I have the sightron stac and rate it highly , had the 6-18 meopro and to me the glass is better with the sightron, but that's just my eyes , I would say the build quality and movement of the dials is better however on the meopro. if ever in Gloucester area you are more than welcome to have a look through my sightron,
    Before the sightron I had a docter 8x56 illuminated and loved it but for a little more mag the sightron provides I'm over the moon

    Thanks for that mate, I'm wondering if the MeoPro 6-18x50sf would be a better option although it's only 25mm tube so would need inserts or new mounts.

    I use two Sightron S11 fixed 6x42 (.22 Air rifle and .243W deer rifle) - production of which is no sadly discontinued, due the the fashion for variable scopes- and the are excellent, hold their zero and have been very good value for money compared to the top Brands.

    I know have three

    very clear on high mag unlike many other mid range scopes

    I use a 3-10x56 IR on my .222
    a 6-25x50 on my 300wm
    and now an 8-32x50 on my 6mm BR

    for the money I am not sure what you can buy to compete with them

    better than Zeiss Conquest I had
