I have a Sightron 3x9 MilDot.  I no longer have documentation.  How do I know if I have an SI or SII?

 

Yes, I am waiting for a response from their customer service.  But they are pretty slow.

Hello Army_Eod

 

It is a SI, you will notice the glass difference right away when you recieve your SII.

They usually have the SI, SII and such stamped at the end of the bell housing on the front of the scope.  It's not colored in or anything and sometimes only visible in the right light.

Is the size of the objective lens stamped an ywhere? S1 is 40mm and S2 is 42mm.

To my knowledge Sightron never made a 3-9 SII Mil-Dot unless it is custom

or a special run.

I believe you are correct now that I look at their website.  So that would make mine an SI.

 

Thx

Sightron used to make a S2 3-9x42 with MilDot.  I have one.  I also have an S1 3-9x40 with MilDot.  I am in Israel right now, but I can make a picture of the two side by side when I get home.

Hello Koshkin

 

Great info I have never seen a SII 3-9 with a Mil-Dot, it sounds like

a great scope I wonder why they discountinued it.

Sightron decided to keep their tactical line-up with a 4x erector, so they kept 3-12x42, 4-16x42 and 6-24x42 with the MilDot and discontinued the 3-9x42.

Also, they are trying to charge more for their new scopes, so I expect most of the older S2 line-up to be disconitnued to make way for more scopes similar to their S2 SS line-up (this is just my speculation, no hard data).

I do not think that the new price increase was wise for Sightron, I do not feel

that they are in that position yet especially with the stiff competition in thier

price range. The future looks a little shaky for Sightron in my opinion. It is

going to be interesting to see what happens with thier new products in the future.

I finially got to a shop that has Sightrons....... Yankton, SD........ and I was really disappointed in the eye relief!  I was looking thru the SSII in the 2-7X32 and I think a 3-9, but I'm not sure.  I just picked up a FFII and it has an inch, maybe more of ER.  I have not shot the gun yet I mounted the FFII on and I'm hoping it works out well, because I really like it so far......... we see how it does in the field.

 

I just joined a gun club..... they just recently started open enrollment...... and hope to go tomorrow.  I will be breaking in the 22-250 with the FFII 3-9X40 I got for my son.  We are not bench shooters by any stretch.... he'll use this gun for coyotes, dogs and plinking....... which is a major reason for joining the club.

 

Will post a note about how it goes.

The break in process started off pretty well..... tried to do the "shoot once and then clean" method for the 1st 10 shots, but only made it to 6 or 7 before I shot 2 times. think I went back to 1 and clean before I did 2 again.  Not sure if my cleaning equipment is right........... sure was taking along time to clean between shots!

 

Anyway....... back to scope......... again this is a Burris Fullfield II 3-9X40 with free Binocs.  When I'm looking/focusing on just the center of the target, it is fine.  But anything around the edges are distorted      I think there is something wrong with the Binocs as well     I was really concentrating on the target and the cleaning, and I didn't have all day, so I will do this again and have a better idea if the scope is bad or maybe it was me. 

 

I really don't think I would have even noticed this if I had never been on this site!  I've learned a boat load from reading the posts!  I put this on my kids gun.....oh btw....I got him a Savage 11FL with the Accu-Trigger and it is awesome!!!!!  When my brain said to pull trigger.... gun went off....... no time to flinch or move.  Very impressed!  Will have to have trigger job on my Rem. 700 BDL and Browning BARs.    As I said, put this on my kids gun and he is going to have a cow if I try to take the scope off and send it to Burris.  He doesn't give a &^%$ about the edges.... he just wants to shoot the darn thing.  He didn't think too much of the shoot and clean either!  Damn kids have no patience these days.
