The Sightron SVIII HD line of riflescopes is built for long-range shooting.

If you want to really jump into the long-range game, the glass oftentimes proves more important than the rifle itself. To help meet the growing demand for long-range performance, the new Sightron SVIII 5-40×56 ED line of riflescopes comes fully loaded for going long.

Sightron SVIII 5-40×56 ED Riflescopes

The SVIII 5-40X comes designed for long-range shooting and hunting, including precision competition. It comprises the company’s first zero-stop first focal plane riflescope. The optic features an internal zero-stop mechanism for audible, positive stop. For versatility, the scope includes a close focus range of 10 meters. It comes with a choice between an LRM or MH-6 illuminated reticle. A generous adjustment range provides 20 MILs of windage and 40 MILs of elevation. Windage and elevation knobs deliver a total of 10 MILs per revolution. Finally, a 40mm main tube provides a waterproof, nitrogen-charged, shockproof housing. The scope ships with 40mm rings for a Picatinny rail.

“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.”

The optic also features MC-777 multi-coated lens coatings for increased light transmission and improved clarity, according to Sightron. The ExacTrack windage and elevation system comes standard. The unit runs on a standard CR2032 battery and retails for $3,099. For even more info, please visit
