Sightron s-tac

I have spent the last 2 weeks, reading all the good stuff about calibers!
The wife is not pleased, but that's how it goes;-)

Am using an Browning BAR 3006 for everything, here in Denmark.
Range, Very seldom more than 200 meters, max 300.. Anything more and you are most likely not on your own land;-)
We can hunt from dawn to dusk..
I have a S&B on my 9,3x74R, does not get much use(driven hunt)
And a Nikon Monarch on the BAR(2,5x10-50)!
Have noticed that Sightron get's some nice remarks allonge the way.
Especialy the S3 lineup..
My local shop tells me, why not the S-Tac?

Any thoughts?

Regards Morten

Hi Morton, any of the SIII series are very good scopes. You don't really need exposed turrets for your style of hunting and if you are hunting very tough ground, the turrets can on occasion be bumped so in these conditions, an SIII scope with turret covers like the 3.5-10 can be very good. Nevertheless, if you are not under such duress when hunting, the S-Tac would be fine and the illuminated reticle very handy!

I hope your local store can get you a good price similar to U.S prices. I find European hunters sometimes get ripped off. If your store turns out to be good to deal with, let me know please, I friend in Denmark who could do with a decent contact for optics.

Have a S3 1x7-24 in the mail.
Did't go for the S-tac This time, maybe next time.

The Price in Denmark is around 1000$ us. Thats not to bad, I think.
But you are quite right.. Anything les than a Swaro, Leica or Zeiss at 2-3 maybe even 4 grand$$ and the dealer rolls his eyes, in desbelife!

A few specialiced Web shops are doing their part, to get prices down;-)
