While I don't have one I'd love an SIII 10-50x and a 1-7x. A buddy has one of the 10-50x's and l was very impressed with it at its price point. The glass is comparable to scopes that are over twice the price.
If I were going in harms way I might splurge for a combat proven scope but for range, competiton or hunting use these scopes are hard to beat if you can find one with the features you're looking for.
I have three SIII's. All three are 6-24x50's. One ffp, one sfp target dot, and the other is a sfp mildot. What sold me on them was the quality of the glass for the price point. Granted I don't think they are as rugged as the NF's and higher priced optics, and they aren't as feature heavy either. But you can't beat the glass.
Personally I was willing to sacrafice features for glass quality. Some aren't and I can understand that.
Sightron = Very high quality materials and assembly. Same as w/ any of them, knowing what kind of shooting you'll be doing with the scope and what kind of bridge dimensions you're dealing with on the rifle's mounting surface and how much eye relief you'll require, makes all the difference between a satisfying purchase and a headache. Don't compromise elevation adjustment range for magnification. You get real clear glass with Sightron.
