SIG Ups Whiskey to 4th Gen
SIG’s Electro-Optics wing is fairly new, just eight years old. Their naming convention is easy to figure out, borrowing from the NATO phonetic alphabet. For instance, Romeo is set aside for non-magnified red dots, Juliet for magnifiers, Zulu for binos, Kilo for rangefinders, Foxtrot for lights, etc.
Their Whiskey line of hunting riflescopes has been flying under the wire for the past few years, but the new 4th generation promises a lot of glass for the money. Borrowing from lessons learned from making thousands of Tango series scopes for the Army, the new Whiskey 4 series includes a 5-20X50mm FFP, 4-16X44mm FFP, and a 3-12X44mm SFP compact option, all with big fat 30mm tubes, IPX 6 argon-purged waterproofing, 0.25 MOA external adjustments, and options for illuminated reticles.
Costs are in the $300-$550 range, which isn’t bad.
