I thought Chris said that they would soon offer Sightron scopes from SWFA. It has been a long wait and I still dont see them being offered. Do the people at SWFA not think the Sightrons are a good scope and dont want to carry a defective product? Just curious.

Our buyer is looking into the line and we might pick them up at the S.H.O.T. show this year.  We think they make good products but behind the scenes politics have kept us from buying them.  We can order any model you like from another distributor at any time.

Could you give me a price on an Sll2.58x42?I am looking for a mid-power in this range with lots of eye relief or suggestions on other scopes?

I can get a 2.5-10x44 SII to you for $179.95.  Didn't see a 2.5-8x42.

 

Also consider the Bushnell Elite 4200 1.5-6x36 or in a lower price range the Weaver Grand Slam 1.5-5x32.

Chris, are you sure that's not an S I ?  I don't see any S II's on Sightrons website that match a 2.5-10x44, but there is an S I.  (Maybe it's a new SII that they haven't updated on their site yet.)

 

Anyway, if it's not too much trouble, I was wondering if you could check and see what the following Sightrons would cost?

SII 3-12x42MD

SII 3-12x42

SII 3.5-10x42

 

Thanks!

S2 2.5-8x42 has been discontinued.

Presumably, because it is not sufficiently different from a 3-9x42.

There is a web site with SII 4.5-14x42mm Illuminated Mil Dot Scope
Sugg. Retail: $542.95
Sale Price: $299.95

I get some blem bullets that are good, but mostly in the gun culture, you get what you pay for.
Those Sightrons are being dumped, and there is a reason for it, even if I don't know it.

They've been discontinued, hence the sale.
