My girlfriend is in need for het first hunting scope I was looking at a sightron SII 3-12 for around 250 on ebay or one of the burris fullfield combo for $200 with bino's.  I have not looked through the Burris yet but am very happy with my own SII6-24.  I would guess the SII is the better scope but the bino would be pretty handy for her.  I am open to any other suggestions in this price range also.

 

Thanks,

The Burris Fullfield II is a good scope for the price.  I have one on my 270, and I have never had a problem with it.  Had a horse fall on my gun and broke the stock.  Never hurt the scope.  It is clear and you can see very well at dusk.  The Burris would be my recommendation.

I own both and without a doubt would go with the Sightron SII.  The Burris is a good scope, but when I mounted my last one, using a leveler and plumb bob, the elevation and windage knobs were not in line with the reticles and the scope is slightly turned to one side.  I am very precise and that just buggs me.  I have had other scopes do this, but not of this quality.  Sightron SII for the optics and ruggedness all the way.

Great advice here from Dolphin.+1 on the SII.
