I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a scope purchase(s) and I've hit up the following websites looking for the best prices and just wanted to know if you had any other suggestions?

Places I've priced:
cameralandny, swfa, opticsplanet, eBay, Kittery Trading Post, BassPro, Cabelas, Sportsmans Guide, and even Wal-Mart

Thanks in advance!

Well, I'm not exactly sure. Probably something in a 3-9x40 or 4-12x40 either with a BDC type reticle for .223 or something with adjustable turrets. For this scope I was trying to keep the $ value under $200 and had narrowed it down to either the RedField Battlezone 3-9x42, Nikon P-223 3-9 x40 BDC, or Nikon ProStaff 4-12x40 BDC, or really anything along those lines without sacrificing too much quality for the low $$ value.

SWFA has Sightrons on closeout and with rebate for $199. I have bought a 12x42AO fixed and 3x9x42 in the past two weeks.

I'm not familiar with Sightrons. Where do you think they fall in comparison to known brands/models?

Zeiss conquest is the best bang for the $$ hands down! Swfa runs them for $350 sometimes.
