Hunters have their own specific set of needs when it comes to optics, and SIG Sauer is responding to those needs with their new Electro Optics line. For the hunters out there they’ve added the WHISKEY series to that line. SIG is calling the new line “revolutionary” and lists the hunting riflescope line as one of their high-performance offerings.
SIG’s WHISKEY line is currently made up of two categories, each of which includes models under its given number: the WHISKEY3 and the WHISKEY5. If you hunt, you understand the importance of features such as fog-proofing, water-resistance, and a good zoom, among other necessities. With these new optics, you get all that and more.
The WHISKEY3 is designed for durability and ruggedness, making it capable of withstanding not only the elements but the often-unavoidable bumps and scrapes on a hunt. Models within the WHISKEY3 category have a 3x optical zoom. Features include low dispersion glass, capped windage and elevation turrets, and multiple reticle options. According to SIG the majority of models include a free “SBT – SIG Ballistic Turret – custom lasered elevation dial calibrated to the shooter’s unique ballistics and environmental conditions.”
The WHISKEY5 is designed not just to be durable but to withstand extreme elements and a variety of conditions. Models within the WHISKEY5 category have a 5x optical zoom. These riflescopes are designed to perform well in low light and deliver fantastic clarity thanks to SIG’s own proprietary HDX optical system. WHISKEY5 riflescopes come with reticles illuminated by Hellfire fiber optics and also come non-illuminated. These scopes are fog-proofed and waterproof rating of IPX-7 (immersion up to one meter with a test duration of 30 minutes). As with the WHISKEY3 models these come with a free SBT as detailed above.
