Sightmark is introducing the Presidio line, a brand-new riflescope family designed to a variety of needs. These new scopes represent the next iteration of Sightmark riflescopes, giving users powerful optics that are both durable and accurate. The Presidios are available in a variety of magnifications and have  bright, red illuminated reticles that can help you get on paper at the range, win an elite 3-gun competition, or harvest game in the field.

The windage and elevation turrets on each scope in the Presidio line is rigid and produces audible clicks that inform the shooter about every adjustment. The aggressive, exterior knurling on the adjustment knobs is easy to grip, even in inclement weather or when your hands are sweaty. The durable, aircraft-grade aluminum bodies can withstand the harshest of environmental conditions, and each scope has a battery life of at least 150 hours.

Sightmark’s elite Presidio riflescopes are excellent optics for shooters of any skill level, no matter if you’re engaging in a 3-gun competition, plinking at the range or out in the wild on a hunting trip. Every optic in the Presidio uses fully multi-coated optics and etched- glass, red reticles to illuminate the target with speed and precision. Durable as they come, Presidio scopes are IP67 waterproof and dustproof, and shockproof for drops up to 3 feet.

The Gas Pedal Drill

Training yourself to shoot better is the result of developing a higher skill level upon which you may rely. The higher your skill level, the greater your odds of performing well when they are called upon. Greater skill is born from greater control; the greater the control, the better the performance.

Your Go-To Move

When it comes to a self-defense situation, most shooters think “Well, I’ll just shoot him!” Others may consider their personal “go-to” move to be a martial arts technique such as a finger strike to the eyes, bare-knuckle punch to the throat or kick to the groin.
