Sig Sauer stands as one of the most innovative and original producers of optical products in the world. A certain individual can quickly recognize the Sig Sauer products predominantly on the account of their eminent and unique style of design. On Shot Show 2019, they almost left us all absent words when they introduced their Tango 6 riflescope in a brand new FDE version. The company also released an ultra ruggedized Romeo8 and Romeo8t red dot sight, on which we have more to say in the continuation of this article.
Sig Sauer Tango6T 1-6×24 Riflescope
This riflescope was primarily designed and optimized for the United States Military. A scope was released in both SFP (second focal plane) and FFP (first focal plane) configurations. Both configurations are satisfactory for close to middle range tactical or CQB engagements. Throw lever is included with any reticle configuration out there which permits a user to change magnification with ease and at a very swift pace.
With Tango6T 1-6×24 you can choose from a variety of reticles – 5.56 / 7.62 / 300 Blackout Horseshoe Dot, 7.62 Extended Range, M855A1 HELLFIRE, MOA MILLING HELLFIRE, 3-Gun HELLFIRE. Both SFP and FFP versions are obtainable in FDE color which resembles a gold color finish on a first glance and a black color. It is of paramount that a wide angle riflescope has an illuminated reticle which is also daytime bright. With Sig Sauer Tango6T this particular endeavor has been attained.
Sig Sauer Romeo8 and Romeo8T red dot sights
Romeo8 1×38 is a brand new reflex sight of an enclosed type from Sig Sauer. It is constructed with high-performance coatings which provide immaculate light transmission rate. This hardened reflex red dot sight is accessible in black or FDE color finish. Romeo8 is powered by a CR123A battery which according to Sig Sauer enables 10+ years of battery life.
Sig Sauer implemented the MOTAC™ technology into the Romeo8T devices which stands as a motion activated illumination system. The functionality is fairly simple. MOTAC™ powers up when it senses a movement or a motion and powers down when the sensor is idle for at least 2 minutes. When this time frame passes absent motion the MOTAC™ system turns the reticle automatically off. It is essential to understand that the device is primarily constructed for a hardened military use which means that the implementation of the latest technologies is more or less a necessity.
Romeo8 which has a letter „T“ in its name is constructed with a removable titanium shroud which serves a purpose of providing topmost protection of optics against environmental and physical effects. Water has no effect on this rugged optics since it is protected by an IPX-8 standard (International Protection Marking) which makes Romeo8 submersible in depth of 20 meters for as long as 30 minutes. You are able to order this product either in FDE or black color.
Sig Sauer’s goal is to implement new technologies and develop them up to their maximum potential to serve both military and civil market although it is true that their primary focus is on the military market.
