Glass quality, ability to return to zero, eye relief.

Differences between the Tango 4 and 6 besides the obvious, big difference in cost.

Looking at either a 2x12, 3x18, 3x12 or 4x16, not sure which way to go.

Glass quality, ability to return to zero, eye relief.

Great quality - of course, there are different levels of glass, depending on the model you are looking at. HDX in Tango6 and Whiskey5, HD in Tango4 and Whiskey3, etc.

Differences between the Tango 4 and 6 besides the obvious, big difference in cost.

They're names come from their erector and magnification - Tango6 scopes are all 6x mag (1-6x, 2-12x, 3-18x, 5-30x, etc). Tango4 is a 4x mag (1-4x, 3-12x, 4-16x, 6-24x, etc).

Looking at either a 2x12, 3x18, 3x12 or 4x16, not sure which way to go.

What are you putting it on? What type of shooting do you do the most/will the rifle do the most?

2 rifles.

First a 14 inch carbine for distances up to 300 yards, second an 18 inch rifle for distances back to 600 yards.

Looking for something reliable, low weight.

Eyesight going slightly hence slightly higher magnifications, Tango 4 looks good for the money.

I would go with a T4 1-4x or a T6 1-6x. I have a Romeo4 on my MCX, too. But, you mentioned eyesight going, so that may not be your best option.

T4 is great for the money. Something like a 3-12, or even a 4-16, would work well of you.

What would be a good magification scope for hunting/home defense for a Sig MXC SBR with 11.5" barrel in 5.56?

Well, I'm not a dealer, so

And I would go with a Romeo4, which is a 1x red dot. If you absolutely need some magnification, you could wait for our Bravo series optics, or go with something like a Tango4 1-4x.

IIRC Sig scopes are Made in China. They should not be an expensive line but they are costly. I would not want to pay $500-$1500 for a scope that could be manufactured in the NcStar/Tasco factory and who's quality remains unknown.

Not entirely true. Some of our lower end, lower cost stuff is Chinese made. The optics in the price range that you quoted are Japanese manufactured and several are US assembled. Made by the same manufacturer making some of our competition.

Fixed power battle sights (think ACOG, etc). They'll be available in 3x, 4x and 5x models.

300BO. This one is a 9" with a 338Ti-QD can on it. I have a 6.75" barrel now that I run with my 762Ti-QD can.

Local shop sure tried to push these on me when i asked to see a Nightforce. Unusually pushy, almost like a commision was on the table. Told them id let aomeone else beta test them. I did look at the rangefinder and liked it, but it seemed awfully close to the Leica, almost like a clone.

So no price point on the bravo series optics? If you guys can get around $500-700 and be ACOG tough with good reticles you'll have a serious seller.

Sorry, missed that part. MSRP's will range from ~$450-$1500.

I do want something that is variable but still fast.



What about a Trijicon MRO with a magnifier? What would be a good magnifier?

I have one, no complaints here. Dot is crisp even through a magnifier
Link Posted: 4/15/2016 11:17:20 AM EST
I don't own one but a friend just bought a Romeo 4, my first thought was re-branded Holosun (I could be wrong but it wouldn't surprise me IE Sig1911-22 = GSG)

the first one he picked up the sight would turn off after 2 mins but the motion sensor was broken so the only way to get it back on was to manually turn it on then it would go off in 2 mins again


I believe he's getting a replacement today for it from his LGS.

No it's better than the leica... Furthest I've ranged with it was 2500 yards, handheld even. Fast ranging time, a reticle that changes intensity on it's own to maintain good illumination levels, clear glass, awesome range, and way less expensive than the leica..

Coregon - Seeing as you're a Sig rep/employee I have a quick question...

In the Sig Optics sales blurb it says: "Military units trust the ROMEO5 when it counts, so why wouldn't you?"

Who are these "Military units"?? Are there any, or did someone at Sig just get carried away with their creative writing?

I am seriously interested to find out, not trying to knock the Co.

Thanks
