New Sightron SIII SS 36×45 ED Premium Competition Riflescopes

At a time when reticles are becoming ever more complex and every scope is a zoom, the new Sightron SIII SS 36×45 ED Premium Competition Riflescopes are a refreshing change!

For here we have a scope with a high – 35x – fixed magnification that’s paired with a simple crosshair reticle. “No Christmas Trees”!!!

In fact, there’s a choice of two models with differing reticles. One model has a plain, fine crosshair. The “Target Dot” reticle has the same fine crosshairs, but with a fine 1/8 MOA dot in the center.

These Sightron scopes are designed for specifically for benchrest competition. However they could also be used for long-range plinking. And – of course – they’re ideal for anyone who prefers the simplest-possible reticle so as not to distract them from the target!

The new SIII SS 36×45 ED riflescopes feature a precision-ground ED (Extra low Dispersion) glass objective lens system for high-quality, crisp and clear color corrected images, says the company. Utilizing Sightron’s Zact-7 Revcoat lens coating technology, the SIII SS 36×45 ED has fully multi-coated precision ground glass lenses providing the best resolution and claims the highest quality light transmission in the industry.

Another standout feature is Sightron’s innovative ExacTrack windage and elevation adjustment system. This applies proper alignment of the adjustments to the erector tube ensuring precision and accuracy – even when the most dramatic adjustments are applied.

A side parallax adjustment knob allows the riflescope to focus from 10 Yards to infinity.

These scopes are fitted with capped target turrets. These have 1/10th MOA click adjustments for precision adjustment of Point of Impact on the target. All SIII SS ED competition target riflescopes are compatible with PCP air rifles and are backed by Sightron’s lifetime limited warranty.

If you want a similar style of scope but with a higher (fixed) magnification, Sightron also has a 45×45 version with very similar characteristics. Of course, if you prefer zoom magnification and a more complex reticle, they have those, too.
