New sightron s tac

Post by Barmyfarmer » 20 Apr 2016, 20:23

Anybody tried the new s tac with add on NV? Think it was using different lens coatings so probably not going to get the same results as the original s tac :thumbdown:

I'm interested to know also;

Have been looking at the older 6-20x50 S-TAC but can't find any information on which S-TACs people are using!

Is that an S-TAC - or the one discussed here a few weeks ago Clive?

I had one in 3-16x42.
It's an excellent scope for the money and worked really well with a Ward type rear add-on right up to near maximum magnification
It doesn't have the HD glass that's in it's big brother (2.5-17.5 x 56) so, in the limit, it will never be quite as good.
It's about half the price of it's big brother, but about 90% as good

Cheers

Hi Bruce.
Thanks for the info. Is that 90% in daylight or NV or both please ?

I've got the newer 3-16x42 STAC and it is very good in daylight, particularly coming in to its own at dusk when lower quality scopes cannot cope.

I have not stuck the wardy on the back yet as I have lost the original shims that Clive sent when I bought it. I had wrapped duct tape around my old scope to make a much better, tighter fit.

I will do the same with the STAC and see what results it produces but from what I understand, they are very good with NV like the original 56mm jobby.

What I can say is that the build quality is pretty good and it focuses down to literally nothing. Ocular adjustment is perfect for adding on NV as well. I did (by hand) sort out the Ocular adjustment the other day and got a really crisp crosshair in daylight conditions but have not got round to sorting out fully at night as do so little night time stuff right now. Kinda prefer mooching around late evening for dusky bunnies.

Will update when i get round to it.
