SIG SAUER got into the hunting scope market at SHOT Show with the introduction of its WHISKEY5 and WHISKEY3 Hunting Riflescopes as part of its all-new SIG SAUER Electro Optics line. The new scopes are engineered to bring the most difficult targets into sharp focus with the goal of making every hunter’s first shot count.
The WHISKEY5 super-zoom 5x riflescope features SIG’s proprietary HDX optical system for extreme clarity and low-light performance. There’s a HellFire fiber optic illuminated reticle and the scope comes standard with a free SBT (SIG Ballistic Turret) calibrated to the shooter’s unique ballistics and environmental conditions. The scope features both illuminated and non-illuminated reticles and is available in second focal plane (SFP) with multiple reticle options. This product is waterproof (IPX-7 rated for complete water immersion up to 1 meter) and comes standard with high-end fog-proof performance. The WHISKEY3 features low dispersion glass, rugged chassis and capped windage and elevation turrets so you don’t accidentally turn your turrets when pulling the gun in and out of a soft case. Most models of the WHISKEY3 include one free SBT custom lasered elevation dial. The 3x optical zoom of this scope is offered in second focal plane (SFP) with multiple reticle options.
Estimated Retail Pricing: WHISKEY5- $699.99-$1,299.99 WHISKEY3- $189.99-$299.99
