Sightron is an innovative optical observation- and aiming-device company, and now it is launching a new line of S6 5-30x56 ED premium riflescopes. These new scopes offer long-range shooters and hunters a new level of quality and performance with full-featured second focal plane (SFP) and first focal plane (FFP) models.

The S6 5-30x56 ED uses premium Japanese glass with Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) elements that offer enhanced contrast, improved clarity and reduced chromatic aberration for a clean and sharp sight picture. This combined with Sightron’s exclusive Zact-7 Plus anti-reflection multi-coatings, gives shooters using an S6 5-30x56 ED scope excellent light transmission and flare reduction when it matters the most. This new optical design offers a 22.7 feet (5x) to 3.8 feet field of view at 100 yards at 30X power, along with a comfortable eye relief of 3.6 to 3.4 inches. These features, combined with an easy to acquire sight picture, give you a scope that gets you on target quickly and keeps you on target longer.

The S6 5-30x56 ED offers side-adjusted parallax correction that begins at 10 yards, a useful feature for competition shooters. The large tactical turrets are easy to read, resettable to zero, and house Sightron’s accurate and repeatable zero-stop mechanism. The turrets also offer 80 MOA of elevation and 60 MOA of windage adjustments for extreme shooting conditions. In addition to this, Sightron’s exclusive ExacTrack erector tube system provides constant, positive and flush contact that eliminates drift at any windage and elevation adjustment.

Daylight illumination is accessed via a low-profile side dial. It provides 11 intensity levels with on-off alternating dial positions. Combined with the MOA-2 and MH-4 reticles, the scope is ready for fast target acquisition in any lighting conditions. The scope is constructed from a one-piece, 34mm aircraft aluminum tube that is O-ring sealed and nitrogen purged to provide the shooter both waterproof and fogproof performance for the life of the scope.

The Sightron S6 5-30x56 ED riflescope is the new choice for hunters, target and long-range shooters that need a versatile, high-performance precision optics. The S6 come with 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 we will replace it, no charge.

BallistiClean 00 Buck Review

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
