Sightron is launching their new SVIII 5-40x56 ED line of premium riflescopes. Sightron is one of the most recognized brands in modern, high-powered long-range and precision shooting competitions today.

Sightron’s high performance SVIII 5-40x56 ED line of riflescopes are designed for competition, long-range shooting and hunting and has in-demand features such as a close focus of just 10 meters. The SVIII 5-40x56 is Sightron's newest zero-stop first image focal plane (FFP) riflescope and features an all new internal zero-stop mechanism which provides you with an audible positive stop for accurate zero settings.

The new SVIII give you the choice of either an LRM or an MH-6 illuminated reticle and has an generous adjustment range which provides 20 MILS of windage and 40 mils of elevation using tactical turrets graduated in 1/10th mil increments which have a total of 10 mils per revolution. The all new 40 mm main tube is waterproof, shockproof and nitrogen charged, along with a side-mounted focus system that has been redesigned for improved minimum focus performance.

"We are very excited about the new riflescope line,” said Mack Matsumoto, President of Sightron. “The SVIII 5-40x56 is Sightron’s first 40 mm 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.” 

Sightron created a new MC-777 multi-coated lens coating for superior performance, increased light transmission and improved clarity. The patented ExacTrack windage and elevation system is standard on all models, and all reticles in this premium line are illuminated with a side-mounted eleven-position on/off rotary-type dial which uses a standard CR2032 Battery. A high-quality set of 40 mm rings for a Picatinny rail are included.

Features:

  • Precision tactical turrets with internal zero-stop
  • 11-position on/off side-mounted illumination dial
  • NEW MC-777 Fully Multi-coated optics
  • Exclusive ExacTrack windage and elevation adjustment system
  • Illuminated MH-6 and LRM FFP designs
  • Screw-in aluminum lens covers
