36X Sightron SII Target Scopes on Sale at MidwayUSA

Sightron 36X scopeHere’s a good deal if you’re looking for reliable, fixed-focal length optic for benchrest competition. MidwayUSA has knocked $43.79 off the price of Sightron SII 36x42mm BRD target scopes — they are now on sale for just $369.99. These same scopes sell elsewhere for up to $450.00. We’ve used this scope model on rimfire and centerfire benchrest rifles from 50 yards to 600 yards, and it worked well. The 1/8-MOA clicks were repeatable and the front-parallax adjustment worked “as advertised”.

Newer Model Available
The scope that is on sale is the SII model that has been available for quite some time. Be aware that Sightron recently introduced an updated “Big Sky” version of its 36-power target scope. This is officially the SIIB 36×42 BRD. This newer SIIB version is slightly longer than the earlier model, and the new model has a bit more eye relief. The main difference is that the earlier model has more elevation adjustment — 50 MOA vs. 40 MOA.

Scope Model Length Weight Relief Elevation Travel Price
SII 36×42 BR D (older) 15.3″ 17.3 oz. 3.4 50 MOA $369.99 on sale
SIIB 36×42 BRD (newer) 15.6″ 17.3 oz. 3.7 40 MOA $580.00 average
