I have been visisting this forum reguarly for several weeks and have a couple of questions for the experts. I am considering a Sightron SII 3-9x42 because of the reviews. My questions are, will this scope handle the recoil of a 7mm short mag., what kind of rings do you recommend and has anyone needed to use the warrenty. If so, did you experience any problems???

Yes it will handle the recoil of a 7mm.  Most any quality scope is rated to handle anything from .375 H&H and down.

I have handled them, but never shot with one.  They appear to be well made with very bright and clear optics.  Koshkin swears by them.

I'll let you know after Monday or Tuesday.  I'm going to the rifle range I just joined to sight in my 7mm wsm with a Sightron 4.5-14x42mm on it.

I'll be patiently waiting Danimal. I'm also waiting for a response from Koshkin.

I have a Sightron S2 3-9x42.  It is mounted ona Tikka M695 in 280Remington.  It never shifted zero.  I've had it on a few other rifles that I have, but never on a real kicker since I do not have anything that REALLY kicks.  At the latest count I have four different Sightron scopes and I have not had any durability issues with them.
