While their rifle line might not have expanded very much this year, SIG SAUER’s Electro-Optics is growing. Adding onto the line of TANGO6 “tactical” scopes, SIG is adding a 5-30×56 scope for longer range shooting. They had one on display at their media day and I had an opportunity to put it to the test.
First and foremost, the styling on the optic is definitely SIG SAUER sharp. It fits well with their design concept for their rifles and handguns, and would be comfortable on any “tactical” style rifle. All the features you’d want are there: locking turrets, first focal plane reticles, and grippy feeling control knobs.
On the inside SIG SAUER has installed their latest reticle: the DEV-L MOA. Much in the style of the Horus reticle configurations, this grid pattern allows for easy hold-overs on long range targets without needing to dial the turrets. Also of note: the “LEVELPLEX” function, which provides in-scope guidance on when the scope is actually level to ensure the most accurate shots.
I like the specs. I like the way it feels. And I like how easy it is to use on the range. I’ll have to ask for one for a proper long-term test soon. Stand by.
