“Dirte”Sidewinder ED vs. Sightron Slll? What’s your thoughts?


Brightness — Sidewinder but its not a huge difference
Clarity — Sidewinder by a smig
Turrets — Sidewinder
IR — Sightron by miles and miles
Caps — Sidewinder by miles and miles

Reticle is a bit subjective, so I’ll say that the Sidewinder reticle seems to be finer, but that may simply be by design too. Sightron has tons of reticle designs, Sidewinder one.

Being able to change out the turrets for 1/4 MOA, 1/8 MOA is wonderful!

Both are about the same price on the street, at least within a couple hundred of each other. If someone handed me one of each for the same price it would come down to the reticle design and intended use as to which I would choose.


Thanks for the review and comparison.
