Sig Optic Tango 6 1-6x24mm – SHOT Show Optic Preview

The Electro-Optics division is the newest addition to the Sig Sauer family.  I had a chance to talked the vice president of the new division during the Sig Sauer range day. The new Sig optics are developed by the same folks that also worked on the Mk6, Mk8 and VX-6 series for Leupold and Stevens.



The Sig Optic Tango 6 1-6x24mm offers a true 1x on the low end. The one that I tried has a triplex reticle with mini fiber optic illuminated the center dot. The reticle illumination is daylight visible. Sig Optic is planning to offer multiple reticles for the Tango 1-6x24mm. Those will be including horseshoe dot with BDC for 5.56, 7.62 Nato and 300 Blackout calibers.



The illumination control on the Tango 6 has off positions between each level settings. The adjustment turrets are lockable with the pull-up to unlock feature. The scope tube size is the common 30mm size.



No specification is available on the Tango 6 yet since it’s still in development. Sig Optic said they are planning to have it on the market in few months. The production version will be made in Japan.

    Looks very promising. Price point and weight will be huge factors… We shall see.

    • I used it at the range and found it to be a very nice scope. Also the MSRP will be $300.

      • F22RaptorADF

        Count me in if it’s just $300!

        • Timothy G. Yan

          The 1-4x maybe. The 1-6x should about a grant or more.

          • Wingbert

            You could get a Primary Arms 1-6X for $280.. SIG is not known for high dollar optics so $300 is plausible

      • Mark Morrison

        I will gladly drop 300 on a 1×6 FFP. I am currently throwing wads of money at my screen, but nothing is happening.

  • Mike N.

    Huge, uncapped turrets again.

  • Griff

    Hopefully we’ll be getting a lot of bang for our buck. Then again there is still a lot to be determined. Do you know if this comes illuminated or will that feature cost more?

    • ruffone

      Read what it says under the third picture.

  • cawpin

    All I want is one of these 1-6 optics with FFP, Mil-dot reticle and 1/10 mil adjustments.

      How strange right? To put the same useful and requested feature found on every serious military scope on theirs. What were they thinking!?

  • scubacat

    Who makes the AR carbine in the first pic?

    • Timothy G. Yan

      Sig of course…
