Based in Youngsville, NC; Sightron has been in the optics business since 1993.  In terms of scope manufacturers, that’s a short period of time, but they have gained a foothold in the rifle scope industry. Sightron offers a couple of different scope lines, but their most popular are the SI series, the SII series and the deluxe SIII series.


All Sightron rifle scopes come with certain standard features, including:

  • A  one-piece, 1” aluminum alloy main tube
  • A patented “ExacTrac” drift free windage and elevation adjustment system. This is really neat system where the windage and elevation adjustments maintain complete contact with the erector tube so the scope holds it’s zero through most anything.
  • A ZACT-7 Revcoat 7-layer multi-coating
  • All Sightron scopes are waterproof, shockproof, nitrogen charged, and fog proof; ensuring that they can be used in any weather conditions.

Out of all the rifle scope series that Sightron offers, the SII series seems to be the most popular and features the largest number of models within a series. This series includes an extensive line of riflescopes including the following:

  • Variable Power Hunting Scopes
  • Target/Competition Scopes
  • Mil Dot Scopes
  • Compact/Fixed Power Hunting Scopes

Sightron offers a somewhat unique lifetime warranty.  It’s unique as they actually don’t try to fix the scope if something goes wrong, they actually send you a brand new replacement. Interestingly enough, the warranty lasts the lifetime of the scope and even transfers to someone other than the original owner.  I’ve seen posts on hunting forums where Sightron scope owners have raved about the fact that Sightron replaced a scope that was 5 or 6 years old. From what I’ve seen, it looks like they really stand by their warranty.

From a price point, Sightron isn’t the least expensive or the most expensive.  Depending on the model they fall somewhere between mid to higher mid in terms of price. The lowest power SI rifle scopes has an MSRP of around $125.00 while the highest power SIII has an MSRP of around $825.00.

Sightron offers an impressive scope for the money and seems to convert quite a few fans with their performance and value.
