Just wanted to pass along infor given to me by phone call to Sightron. Those interested in reticle changes to new SIII SS6-24x50 LR and SIII SS 8-32x56 LR scopes, Sightron has an approved point of contact that does Sightron and Leupold reticle changes. And it does not void the warranty if not the cause of a problem. They will also send the customer's reticle to the same place if the scope is warrantied,so It can be reinstalled in a replacement scope.They do not pay for the replacement of it. Their warrany people now understand that having to wait for a replacement is not good for customer satisfaction, so a replacement scope is a fast turn around.Though they do not expect that to be something that we will see with the new quality controls put in place.  Another example of a company listening to their customers. BTW   the glass in the new SIII scopes is infact the best ED glass available from Japan...now the same quality as the so called UP-Market Scopes......just my 2c worth ...in trying to buy a decent Target scope for LR......

This is an email I sent to Bill below. This should help further clarify some things.

In a message dated 3/10/2009 6:11:56 A.M. Mountain Daylight Time, johnboymason@hotmail.com writes:
Bill,

I will be purchasing a Sighton SIII 36X soon and was wondering what I can get the reticle changed to? I do not like the target dot. Can it be changes to the mil dot or a fine cross hair? Can you install hash marks instead of dots?

Thanks,

John Mason


John,

We can build a fine X-hair for you. The cost is $110.00. We can install a mil-dot reticle  which is an array of dots, 4 up, 4 down, 4 left and 4 right, all spaced 31/2 MOA apart. The cost is $110.00, plus $10.00 a dot for a total of $270.00. We do not make hash marks. A fine X-hair is just your target dot without the dot.
All charges include return shipping, taxes, and insurance.
Bill Ackerman

Called regarding available reticles.  I was looking for the #4.  It appears that the only ones offered are fine, ultra fine (?) and dot reticles.  Price is 110 and that includes return shipping and tax.
