First Look: Sightmark Latitude Riflescopes

posted on March 29, 2018
Built as a line of high-magnification, do-it-all riflescopes at prices that most budget-minded shooters can afford, the Sightmark Latitude optics lineup is perfect for ringing range steel, competing at extended distances or even going after game animals.

This high-power optic is designed particularly to help long-range shooters excel at the range during extended-distance competitions. The optic is built on a large 34 mm main-body tube with a total adjustment range of 110 MOA, ensuring that users can stretch the legs of their precision rifle. Windage or elevation adjustments can be made quickly and easily, thanks to oversized turrets that are readily accessible from a firing position. Several models in the company's lineup are equipped with zero-stop points built into the elevation turret, enabling shooters to preserve their rifle's zero.

The Latitude Benchrest Riflescope features a second focal plane reticle with red or green illumination for extra aiming help when dialing in during low-light conditions. The optic is designed to handle repeated recoil on rifles chambered up to .50 BMG and is rated IP67 waterproof.

Purpose-built for F-Class long-distance shooting competitions, the company's F-Class riflescope is loaded with a number of features that help the precision-rifle owner get solid hits at extended ranges. Several of the stand-out features on the F-Class design include large adjustment turrets that enable users to quickly adjust windage and elevation from a firing position. The elevation turret features a zero-stop point that enables users to quickly return to a pre-determined zero after dialing-in at distance.

The F-Class design, like the Benchrest, is constructed on a larger 34 mm tube, providing 110 MOA of internal adjustment. The second focal plane reticle offers owners the choice between red or green reticle illumination for low-light aiming. Each optic ships with a sunshade, CR2032 battery and a fast-focus eyepiece.

In addition to the company's F-Class and Benchrest optics, the Latitude lineup also includes a PRS model that differs from the other optics in that it contains a first focal plane reticle that allows users to make accurate adjustments at any magnification level. The PRS features a built-in adjustment range of 31 mils.

Suggested retail pricing on the Sightmark Latitude series of riflescopes starts at $719.99.
