  • sightron s2 big sky 3-12x42 anyone have one?

    Hey guys been looking for a new scope for the 308 and want something around the 4-12 power and dont want to spend the earth. Looking at the zeiss terra 3 4-12x42 but cant get one through my local dealer as another store has bought all the stock and have to wait a while for next shipment. One i can get my hands on is the sightron s2 3-12x42 big sky which get alot of great reviews and guys have nothing but good things to say about them etc. Anyone here have one or know someone just want a little more feedback if i can would be great! cheers

    I don't have the 3-12x42 but I have two others, the first is on my bench gun it is a 36x and what a great scope it is, the lenses are as clear as crystal and the other one is a 6-24x on my 6.5x55 it is also a great scope. The Big Sky S11 has the same lenses as the S111 but in a one inch tube, where as the S111 comes in a 30mm tube..
    I have no hesitation in recommending the big sky to anyone.

      Hi, I have a Sightron BS 3-9x42, it has very clear glass and I really like their duplex reticle. However I find the eye relief very touchy when on 9x and on 3x there's I little edge distortion. Would I buy one again? Not sure. But I think there are other scopes now for similar money that probably outclass it. The Meopta Meopro range is definitely worth a look.

      Cheers.

      hey guys what about the vortex viper hs 2.5-10x44 seems like it has some good specs and the 30mm tube is nice and bright. Can anyone comment on these from experience? Had a look at the 6-20 something like that today at the lgs as he didnt have the one with my specs but it was super bright and clear! any bad reports? cheers
