I'm new to the business of selecting scopes for long range target shooting.  I am looking at the big Sightron and really like it, but I was told it uses a two piece tube.  I don't know if that is an issue or not.  I want to make it clear I am not in any way trying to be critical of the product.  I just want to know if it IS a two piece tube, and if so, does anybody think this might cause any problems.  Is this a good thing, or a bad thing, or does it make any difference?  I assume Sightron does not think it's an issue as they offer a lifetime warantee.

Thanks for the feed back.  It doesn't sound like there can be much of a problem with it, certainly not on a 223 or 6mmBR.  The company also offers a life time warrentee.  True, some warentees are not worth the paper they are written on, but from what I have heard Sightron stands behind their product 100%.

Why dont you stay with something like a 6-24 or a 5-20 or 4-16 those are a lot more plesant to work with.
