Looking at that pic, I thought the Sightmark riflescope and spotting scope were one unit. Which would mean the blond was springing, Athena-like, from the bearded guy’s head. Once the drugs wore off, I read the press release for their Pinnacle 3-18×44 (below) and reckoned their $1559 msrp optic could well be . . .
“ideal for extreme hunters, competition target shooters and law enforcement/military personnel.” Right mag, right?
As for the manufacturer’s contention that “the Pinnacle 3-18×44 is sure to never leave your rifle once mounted,” these guys know me so well! I’m one of the laziest — I mean most versatility-seeking gun guys you’ll find. And you’ll find me and the team at SHOT a week from Monday, checking out all the new gear. Watch this space.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
As versatile an optic as they come, Sightmark is proud to introduce their latest first-focal-plane riflescope, the Pinnacle 3-18×44 (SM13030TMD). Bridging the gap between the 1-6x and 5-30x Pinnacles, the meticulously designed 3-18x Pinnacle is a first-class riflescope with close- to long-range shooting capabilities. Ideal for extreme hunters, competition target shooters and law enforcement/military personnel, the Pinnacle 3-18×44 is sure to never leave your rifle once mounted.
Built with world-class Japanese glass and featuring fully multi-coated lenses, the Pinnacle’s image clarity and resolution are second to none and help bring shooters the most precise shots possible. Its zero-stop elevation dial allows a “no look” return to zero without passing below the zero range.
A must for serious shooters, the Pinnacle features a first focal plane reticle for accurately range finding targets and shooting holdovers at any power quickly. The 3-18×44’s 34mm tube also helps add an elevation adjustment range for those extra-long shots.
The Pinnacle also gives shooters the option of capped or exposed turrets depending on their preference. For low-light shots or those with damaged eyes, the Pinnacle boasts red or green reticle illumination. The 3-18×44 Pinnacle includes sunshade, 2 turret caps, 2 thread protectors and a CR2032 battery.
