    Sightron SII Big Sky 6.5-20x50 scope

    This is an decent medium-long range or alpine scope, with (IMHO) better glass than a newer S-TAC. Sightron have a transferable lifetime replacement warranty like Leupold or Vortex.

    60 MOA dial. Was enough to let me dial to 1300m with a 20MOA rail on a 270WSM, without using the MOA2 reticle which would give another 20 on hold over.

    Selling as I have replaced with a scope that better suits the majority of the hunting I do (Vortex Viper HS 2.5-10). The 6.5x min zoom was a bit much for me on the sightron.

    In very good condition, apart from some rubbing on turret covers, area of chipping at top of eye piece ring(not lens) and a light scratch on the cone section of objective body. Lenses are PERFECT.

    Comes with sun shade and objective lens flip up cover (rear lens cover lost hunting), plus cleaning cloth/bag.

    Rings not included, but could be negotiated after purchase of scope if they suit.

    Looking for $675

    Chill out, man.

    You gave me no feeling you were ever going to get to what I wanted and I had some other inquiries, so I didn't reply..

    Here's 3.

    Focus knob is virtually perfect.

    The turret covers just have a bit of light rubbing from a strap or sling etc from going on hunts. The worst areas are shown in the photo. It's nothing a light spray paint couldn't fix.

    Also - I have just found the spare rear lens flip up cover I thought I had lost.
