The Burris XTR 2 is a pretty good scope to consider.  They have one in 3-15x.  Glass is not quite as good as SS HD glass, but it is pretty nice.  Overall they are a good scope for the money.

Any of the scopes mentioned in the previous 2 posts would no doubt fit and work.  That said, I have a SS 1-6, 3-9, and 5-20.  I'm used to the mil-quad reticle and quite comfortable using it in these scopes.  To that end, I'm just hoping and holding out for another SS HD to fill the gap for my uses.  It may not ever happen, and that's ok.............. but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

The SS HD line may not be the best that is out there, but for my uses they are more than good enough.  I just can't bring myself to step down to the classic line.  I'm not saying they are bad, it's just that the HD line has the features that I want/use/like, that's all.

Maybe next year.............. In the mean time, I'll use what I have and patiently wait for my 2 Form 4's to go through on the pair of suppressors I have on order.  Figure if I can't buy myself some new glass I want, I can buy some lower decibels! Big Smile

Gotta bump this wish up top one last time......... after all it is now October, 2016.  Which means Black Friday is just around the corner.  Keeping my hopes alive.

Maybe one of the SWFA members could indicate if there is hope for this to happen or just flat out put it to rest.

I'd keep my eyes open, but I'm not on the inside. It just seems like it would be a good choice for Black Friday.

If they had brought it out with IR, I would already have 3, maybe 4.

I agree wholeheartedly!  Hopefully Ilya or Jon A. is reviewing it now to put out their thoughts, right before Black Friday, like he did last year with the SFP 3-15's!!!!!

While the group out here may be small, there is a group that would be all over a HD version.  I have a CZ 455 Precision Trainer sitting here that needs glass - I'd prefer it to be HD with a very adjustable parallax, and be branded SS!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll live with a classic line 3-15 FFP if I must, but man I really like the way the ocular focuses and the turrets secure on the HD line over the classic.  It's a much more familiar (to me) and robust design in my very humble opinion.

Black Friday is in 49 days............. Guess we'll know soon enough!

I would love one as well.  I love my 5-20x, but a 3-15x would be much better for my uses.

I've not heard any peeps about IR yet on a SS, but when it happens, i'll have no reason to buy anything else.

I bet with IR he meant illuminated reticle.

I can tell you that a segment of the precision airgun competition community would love to see an HD version of the SS 3-15 since it has such close parallax adjustment. A buddy of mine who is really into air rifle benchrest made that comment to me and wanted me to ask SWFA about that possibility for him just last week.

I guess if they changed nothing other than upgraded HD glass on the current SS 3-15 you might get there without running the price up a lot.  The 3-15 already has several variations which one do you guys like the best and why?

Out of them all, I'd have to go with the original FFP 3-15. Now if they bumped up the glass, put in turrets & ocular focus like the HD line, I'd have to have at least 2. The cost of illuminating the reticle would bump up the cost too much, that you may get into or close to a 5-20 non-illuminated.

A guy can hope & dream at least.

I'm willing to bet there is a segment, possibly a big one shooting air guns and .22 LR that would be all over this.

I'm not sure the 22 segment can find affordable ammo.  I saw a 100 round pack of CCI Mini Mag at the gun show today priced at $19.95 more than double what it is in a gun store here when they have it. It used to be fun to shoot 22 when you could get ammo cheap.

.22 ammo is fairly easy to find in MN. $22.00 for 325 rounds with no limits on how much you can buy. .07 cents/round. Not as cheap as a few years ago, but still cheaper than large rifle calibers.

If SWFA builds it, we'd buy HD scopes for .22 rifles!

No movement, no nothing as far as anything information related on this topic...................

Please SWFA, why don't you just put a fork in this and put it to rest?
