I ordered a SSIISS 4.5X14X44 is that the same as a SSII. If they are different what are the differences. I am putting it on a .17Remington for coyote hunting and target shooting.

Welcome to The OT, Sir!
 
I thought the "S2 SS" was just a S2 with a side focus.
Where's Koshkin to correct me??.......Embarrased

I am not sure S2 SS (Side Focus) is a different line from S2.  Optical quality is similar, but mechanics are a bit different.  S2SS uses 3x erectors while S2, depending on the model, has both 3x and 4x erectors.

S2 SS has slightly different knobs and less adjustment range, but that is mostly it.

Personally, if I were buying a Sightron I would probably lean toward Sightron S2 Big Sky.

Thanks for the info. If I get it for 315.00 is it a good buy or should I jump another 175.00 for the Big Sky or maybe a 4200. This would be my first Sightron and it seemed like a good deal.

That is a very good price, I'd go for it.

I got a Sightron Big Sky 3-12x 42mm scope last year and have been extremely happy with it. It has long eye relief, is light weight, and has 'Climate Coating' which is similar to 'Rainguard'. The Bushnell 4200 is a good scope but the eye relief is shorter than the newer model scopes in its price range.
