Hi,

I'm new to the forum and have really enjoyed reading and learning from the many knowledgeable guys here.
 
I'd like to get a 3-9x42 Sightron scope for my .270 Winchester M70 to use for deer hunting.
I was wondering if the SII Big Sky is worth the extra $100 or so over the SII and what the real difference between to two is? I know there is currently a $50 rebate on the SIIB, which brings the price much closer, but it may be after the first of the year before I'm able to make my purchase.
 
Thanks for your help with my decision.
Mike

The S II is a nice scope but the big sky is well worth the extra money

Thanks grumpy,
Thats kind of what I was thinking. I've had an SII Big Sky in the past and really liked it. I just wasn't sure how it compared to the regular SII.
Thanks,
MIke

If you had a S2 BS scope already than you should not even consider the S2 because it's not in the same league.The Big Sky is more in line with a Zeiss Conquest as far as optics go.Also the Big Sky has climate control and resettable turrets so the extra cost is worth it in my opinion.The S2 is a good scope,I bought one for under $200 dollars and was amazed by it's performance.I sold all my Leupold VXII scopes and put the S2 scopes on because I found the Sightrons were clearer and brighter and worked better in low light.

Thanks Randall,
I've never handled an SII so wasn't really sure how it would stack up against the SII BS.
Sounds like its well worth the extra $$.
Thanks again,
Mike

Hi,
 
Yes the big sky is a step above the SII. You can purchase these scopes at their office in Youngsville at a discounted price. Good luck.
