Does anybody here have experience with Rudolph Optics? We have a shop here carrying them, and of course they're going to sing their praises. Just curious if anybody has used them.

Hi Stuart,

I have not but I understand your trepidation... very hard to trust a salesperson.

Re: Rudolph Optics
No sorry. The SIII Sightron series of scopes seam to have the right balance of price, robustness and functional reliability. Tried and proven by quite a few of us here. They just work and do what's needed with no fuss. Me personally I have 3 SIII Sightrons and a Nightforce. I don't think I'll have to buy another scope unless I manage to wreck one. $1830.00nzd plus freight and customs duty its a lot dearer than the Sightrons.

Rudolph Optics Tactical T1 6-24 x 50 30mm Riflescope Tube with T3 Reticle, Black

I understand them to be Sightron SIII 6-24 "clones" using literally the same glass (?) from the same manufactory, but built to order for Rudolph. A difference is they have a zero-stop, which is prompting Sightron to add this feature to more recent scopes.

However the Rudolphs are 20-30% more expensive than the Sightrons, and while they have a lifetime warranty what does that mean from an entity that has not existed very long at all. Sightron has been around a good bit longer and also has a lifetime warranty.
