Sightron Announces New S6 5-30×56 ED Riflescopes
Sightron has announced a new line of S6 5-30×56 ED riflescopes. The company says that these offer long-range shooters and hunters a new, premium level of quality and performance. Yet these 34 mm tube scopes also focus down to 10 Yards and are suitable for airgun use, too.
S6 models have a 6 x magnification range and are to be available with full-featured second focal plane (SFP) and first focal plane (FFP) reticles. There’s also a choice of MOA and Mil-Dot reticles.
Sightron scopes are very popular with HAM readers and we expect that to continue with this new S6 range. We found that the SIII FT model delivered HAM Gold Award-winning performance on test.
The S6 5-30×56 ED riflescopes employ premium Japanese glass with Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) elements. The company says that this enhances contrast, improves clarity, and reduces chromatic aberration. The result is the cleanest and sharpest sight picture possible, Sightron tells HAM.
Combined with Sightron’s exclusive Zact-7 Plus anti-reflection multi-coatings, the S6 5-30×56 ED gives shooters excellent light transmission and flare reduction, they explain.
This new optical design offers best-in-class fields-of-view at 100 Yards with 22.7 Ft (5x)-13.8 Ft (30x) and a comfortable eye relief of 3.6-3.4 Inches. Combined with an easy to acquire sight picture, you have a scope that gets you on target quickly and keeps you on target longer.
The S6 5-30×56 ED offers side-adjusted parallax correction starting at 10 Yards for competitive close Field Target and long-range benchrest shooting.
The large tactical turrets are easy to read, resettable to zero, and they house Sightron’s highly accurate and repeatable zero-stop mechanism. The turrets offer wide 80 MOA elevation and 60 MOA windage adjustments to allow for drop and wind corrections at long range. Sightron’s exclusive ExacTrack erector tube system provides constant, positive and flush contact that eliminates drift at any windage and elevation adjustment.
Reticle illumination is accessed via a low-profile side dial. It provides 11 intensity levels with on-off alternating dial positions. Combined with the MOA-2 and MH-4 reticles, the scope is ready for fast target acquisition in any lighting conditions.
The scope is constructed from a one-piece, 34mm aircraft aluminum tube that is O-ring sealed and nitrogen purged to provide the shooter both waterproof and fogproof performance for the life of the scope.
S6 riflescopes come with Sightron’s Lifetime Performance Guarantee that is backed by a team of skilled technicians. If you ever have an issue, they will get your scope working as it should or will replace it, no charge.
Availability is scheduled for Fall 2022.
