So what else is there that's light ,variable mag and under a grand?
Why didn't the Sightron do it for you? - people do sell stuff for genuine reasons and I'd only buy off someone I know.
The other option would be a 60x March - which runs at around £2300 new. Lighter than the Sightron, some temperature shift but easily predictable and manageable. Do I really want to put a £2.3k scope on a springer though??
Either that or you're looking at a fixed mag Leup comp, but they're not without their problems either.
