I have already SIII 16x42 for six months, as you know and I would like to
buy another riflescope for Air Arms TX 200
http://www.airarmsownersclub.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=3231&start=125  - rifle scope SII Big Sky 6-24x42.
My question is if I can see the difference in the image with the same
magnification between SIII 16x vs SII BS 16x? Construction is different, but
glass are the same so I will not see the difference, will I? For me it is a
huge sum of money.
 And with which magnification is the mil-dot true in the case of SII
6-24x42?

+ zoom 24x - a better estimate the distance to 45 metres.
+paralax from 10 yard
+ hidden turrets
+ 6-10x zoom less vibration = better resolution in details when shooting
handheld.
- AO (Adjusted Objective)

Thank you for all your reactions!

At 24x.  The reticle dimensions are right there on the website.  No need to e-mail anyone about it.

Thank you for your help. Maybe it´s stupid question, but how do you know that it is 24x? I couldn´t find it on Sightron´s website. I know there are reticle dimensions, but I can´t see that 24x  is the magnification where the Mil-Dot is accurate.

1 mils is 3.6 inches at 100 yards, as listed in the Max Power "B" measurement.
So the reticle is subtended at max power (24x).
