posted on August 27, 2018
Designed as a more-affordable optic option for competitors looking to get into the long-range game of F-Class matches, the Sightmark Latitude 8-32x60 mm F-Class riflescope is loaded with features. Overall, the design is intended as a rugged, high-magnification optic that will get shooters set to enter long-range competitions without blowing their budget or their chances of placing well in the match.

Each Sightmark Latitude 8-32x60 mm riflescope is constructed on a 34 mm aluminum tube and is designed to provide a rugged optic that can handle most conditions in which long-range shooters will find themselves competing. The optic is designed as a nitrogen-purged, fogproof, dustproof and IP67-rated waterproof design and is rated to handle recoil shock from guns chambered in magnum calibers up to and including .50 BMG.

Inside the optic, consumers will find fully multi-coated lenses that are protected against scratches and abrasions, along with an etched reticle located in the second focal plane. The reticle is illuminated and offers both red and green illumination options to allow users to adjust to their environment, along with a five-setting rheostat that can be fine-tuned to match ambient lighting. The illuminated reticle is powered by a single CR2032 battery, which provides a total battery life measuring between 30 to 2,000 hours, depending on brightness setting.

On the outside of the optic, the Sightmark Latitude is equipped with large adjustable turrets, offering 1/8-MOA adjustment values for both windage and elevation. Total adjustment range for elevation is 110 MOA, while the windage can be adjusted across a 70-MOA range. The scope is also equipped with a zero-stop ring as well as a diopter ring that allows for quick focusing while transitioning to targets at different distances.

The overall length of the Sightmark Latitude 8-32x60 mm F-Class riflescope is 14.05 inches, while the width and height measure 3.54 and 2.95 inches, respectively. Total weight on the scope comes in at 36.2 ounces, and each model ships with a sunshade included. The suggested retail price on the 8-32X F-Class model is $779.99.
