posted on January 27, 2022

Sightron is launching a new riflescope, the S6 1-6x24 mm. This new S6 1-6x24 mm targets the low-variable-power optics (LVPO) tactical market with premium full-featured second-focal-plane (SFP) and first-focal-plane (FFP) riflescopes.

The Sightron S6 1-6x24 mm uses premium Japanese glass, new optical designs, and a proprietary MC-777 multicoating technology for enhanced clarity, light transmission, color accuracy, and sharpness. On top of all this, the scope offers eye relief and a forgiving eye box that provides fast target acquisition and increased situational awareness. The 30 mm SFP and 34 mm FFP models use rugged and lightweight aircraft aluminum tubes with wide windage and elevation turrets that have low profile caps for a great look and increased performance. The turrets can be reset to zero and have 140-MOA (SFP) / 35-MRAD (FFP) adjustments for use in even the most extreme shooting conditions.

The new IR4A and LRT reticles have a daylight-bright illuminated center dot that provides easy target acquisition in close quarters. There is a low-profile illumination dial on the left side of the scope that offers 11 intensity levels with an off-position between each setting. Both scopes are O-ring sealed and purged with nitrogen gas for waterproof and fog proof performance.  S6 riflescopes have the Sightron's Lifetime Performance Guarantee that is backed by a team of skilled technicians. If you ever have an issue, they will get your scope working as it should or they will replace it, no charge.

Sightron S6 1-6x24 mm Features:

  • One-piece aluminum tube
  • 11-Position illumination dial
  • MC-777 Multicoating technology
  • Waterproof & fog proof
  • New IR4A & LRT reticles
  • 30 mm SFP & 34 mm FFP options

Exact specifications for the line of Sightron S6 1-6x24 mm scopes vary by model. For more information on the new S6 riflescope and the complete product line from SIGHTRON, please visit
