These Sightrons will be my first forray into "Premium" scopes. I have always had Bushnells, Tasco, BSA etc. I did a lot of research and have not read one single bad thing about them and only high praise. These were regulary $500 scopes which was still way out of my price range but for $200 I could not pass up the deal. So far I have the 12x42 mounted on my CZ527 22 Hornet and have run about 20 shots through it. I am quite happy and can see now the difference a cheap and a "Premium" scope. I will never go back.

Wow, how did you manage that? I've been hammering different sites all week and never saw that one. Today they don't even have the scope listed for sale on Cabela's website. Was it like a 1 day/flash sale or something? And why the heck didn't I know about it . Well, you did good.

Unbelievable. That is the exact scope I originally was looking for but refused to pay $200 for it because I know they have been on sale here and there for less. I literally bought a scope 2 days ago off of eBay, otherwise, I'd rip your arm off. Thanks for the offer.

I have Sightrons. Great scopes. Get the 3.5-10x42 Big Sky. The SI series are cheap but not so much as a Walmart Bushnell. SII is much better and the SII Big Sky is on par or better than a VX3. I would even put mine up against a Zeiss or Minox for light, color and sharpness.

Cameraland new york for high end scopes-demo pricing
SWFA
Opticsplanet

Minox on demo price sale is best glass for money.
Best value I have seen this month is Sightron from SWFA with January rebate
Opticsplanet for lower end scopes has reasonable pricing with good service.

I have found the Optics Planet overall have the best deals on optics and hardware (rings bases etc). They have close out items from time to time from all the big boys with factory warranty. No question the fastest delivery of any. How they process the order and get it to you is amazing(and free shipping). Allways provinding status update via EM. Having purchased 4 high end optics from them in the past two years, 5 stars from here.
