i think it would be a toss up from all i have heard about the the BS.  The only edge for me is vortex's lifetime transfereable warraty and the knowledge of how it works.  don't know anything about sightrons

just double check the warranty on the sightron and if its good then go for it. you could always trade it in later with the trade in program for another scope

With the S2BS at 260 and the Viper at 399, I would also take the Sightron.

I would say if you like it better the VX3's and Monarch then just buy the thing. At that price you cant really go wrong.

I have both the 3-9X42 Big Sky and the 3-9X40 Viper. While I love the Viper the B/S edges it out ever so slightly in clarity and color but I like the Vipers power ring and adjustments better. The B/S also has a water repellent coating on the lenses.
