New Sightron 36X ED Glass Scope with 1/10 MOA Clicks

Sightrong 36X ED competition scope SII 36x45mm

Here’s something of interest for benchrest competitors, particularly those who shoot at 100/200/300 yards. In those disciplines, high magnification is very important, and fixed-power options are popular. And in a game where the goal is to shoot in the ones and zeros, it is absolutely vital to have a scope that never experiences even the slightest shot-to-shot change (drift), and that allows very precise adjustments for windage and elevation. If you have a scope that moves internally, even the slightest amount, from one shot to the next, that can ruin a group.

Sightron recently introduced a new competition scope that should be a serious option for benchrest shooters. The new Sightron SIII SS 36x45mm ED riflescopes offer quality glass, precise adjustments, and reticles that hold steady — with no drift from shot to shot. This is a side-parallax scope with 1/10 MOA click values. MSRP is $1249.99* with an expected “street price” around $1100.00. Two Reticles are offered: Fine Crosshair (FCH), and FCH with 0.125 MOA Target Dot.

Sightron ExacTrack Windage and Elevation
When you’re trying to shoot one-hole groups, you need a scope that holds its values, and can also give precise, 100% repeatable adjustments when you need to dial a windage or elevation change. This SII SS ED’s ExacTrack windage and elevation adjustment system maintains proper alignment of the adjustments to the erector tube. That, Sightron says, ensures “precision and accuracy even when the most dramatic adjustments are applied.” NOTE: The adjustment values for both windage and elevation are 1/10th MOA. That is unusual. We usually see 1/8th MOA clicks in this type of scope. Here the click values are one-tenth Minute of Angle. (NOT 1/10 MIL). Sightron note: “Precise target knobs with 1/10th MOA click value provide hair-splitting accuracy.”

ED (Extra Low-Dispersion) Glass in New 36x45mm Optic
The new SIII SS 36×45 ED features precision ED glass for crisp, razor-sharp views with minimal chromatic aberration — Sightron promises “crystal-clear target definition” with no color hazing. The SIII SS 36x45mm ED boasts Zact-7 Revcoat multi-coated precision ground lenses. Sightron claims “the highest quality light transmission in the industry”.

NOTE: If you want more magnification, Sightron also offers a 45x45mm SIII scope with ED Glass. To learn about that, READ Sightron 45x45mm SIII ED Review.

A side parallax adjustment knob allows the riflescope to focus from 10 yards to infinity. All SIII SS ED competition target riflescopes are compatible with all air guns and are backed by SIGHTRON’s lifetime limited warranty.

* The Sightron Press release lists a $1249.99 MSRP, but on the Sightron website we are see a $1150.00 price for the SIII 36x45mm ED scope models SIIISS36X45EDTD/FCH.
