The New SIGHTRON SVIII 5-40x56 ED Premium Riflescope lineup is here

SIGHTRON announced the launch of the new SVIII 5-40×56 ED line of premium riflescopes. They’re one of the most recognized brands in modern, high-powered long- range and precision shooting competitions today.

SIGHTRON SVIII 5-40×56 ED Features

SIGHTRON’s high-performance SVIII 5-40×56 ED line of riflescopes are designed for competition, long-range shooting, and hunting. The new SVIII 5-40×56 ED riflescope line has all the features you want, for instance a close focus of just 10 meters. The SVIII 5-40×56 is SIGHTRON’s newest zero-stop first image focal plane (FFP) riflescope. This new SVIII model features an all-new internal zero-stop mechanism that provides an audible positive stop for dead-on zero settings.

Equally important, the new SVIII offers your choice of an LRM or MH-6 illuminated reticle. The SVIII also offers a generous adjustment range that provides 20 MILS of windage and 40 MILS of elevation utilizing .1 Mil tactical turrets. The windage and elevation knobs have a total of 10 MILS per revolution.  The all-new 40mm main tube is waterproof, shockproof, and nitrogen charged. The scope has another user friendly feature. It comes with a set of 40mm scope rings for Pic rails.

We are very excited about the new riflescope line,” said Mack Matsumoto, President of SIGHTRON. “The SVIII 5-40×56 is SIGHTRON’s first 40mm main tube riflescope. It’s also, the first to utilize the new MC-777 coatings on every air-to-glass surface throughout the entire optical system.”

Additionally, there are performance enhancing features that include a new MC-777 multi-coated lens coating. This increases light transmission and improves clarity regardless of the hour of the day. Furthermore, SIGHTRON’s patented ExacTrack windage and elevation system is standard on all models.  Lastly, all reticles in this premium line are illuminated with a side-mounted 11-position on/off rotary-type dial which uses a standard CR2032 Battery. Another standout feature is the side-mounted focus system that has been redesigned for improved minimum focus performance.
