I have been shopping for a scope for my new CZ 452 Silhouette in .22lr.
I am looking to stay on the 3-9 power range, at this time, and AO is a requirement.

I already own a Leupold VX -II 3-9x33 EFR on the wifey's Marlin 880 SS, and we been happy with it.
But after reading many threads here, I expanded my horizon to include other manufactures.

I have narrowed my choices down to these  2 scopes. Both focus down to 10yds.

http://swfa.com/Leupold-3-9x33-VX-II-Rimfire-EFR-Riflescope-P3277.aspx

http://swfa.com/Sightron-3-9x36-SII-Big-Sky-Riflescope-P9154.aspx

There are more choices if I move the power up to the 4-12 range. But most of my shooting is inside 75yds these days.
I have a VX-III 4.5-14x40AO not in use, but I just can't bare to mount that much power, and it only focus down to 25yds. NOT close enough.

Any body own the Sightron I have listed above? Your thoughts?

I know there are cheaper cost scopes out there, but are thay in the same optical class as these two?

the big sky and vxII arent even close to each other, i dont own any sightrons but i have messed with them a little and  the big sky is in competition with the vx3 to be honest with you. they have an exceptional cs-dept as well.

Hello snakeman48

Either of those scopes would be good choices.
Both the rimfire Leupold's parallax setting at 50 yds and the Big Sky's AO make them good choices.
I've owned similar models in each line and the Sightron has much better optics, but the VX-II has a more comfortable, albeit variable eyebox.

Ps to Brian:
 Any new Leupold you buy no longer has 'Made in the USA' printed on the box... care to guess why? Last I heard, Sightron is still a USA company.

The 3-9 Leo EFR is adjustable down to 10 meters. I have a discontinued 3.5-10x50 EFR and it is an excellent scope for rimfire use. The 3-9x33 should be better.
There are a few scopes in Leupolds huge line up that tend to outperform their model number designations (like VX-II). The EFR's are some of those
The Big Sky is supposed to be a very good scope based on feedback here.
