SIG SAUER continues to expand its business to include much more than making firearms. In the recent past, the company introduced or expanded its manufacturing in lights, optics, ammunition, suppressors and more. This is a company that clearly believes in growing the bottom line through being a single source provider of all of a shooter’s needs. Interestingly, the company appears to be doing it all in house rather than through strategic acquisition.
The latest new product from SIG is not a gun, but an optic from its Electro-Optic division.
Called the Bravo4, this sight is a prism based sight that is a 4x optic with a 10˚ field of view. According to SIG, this optic has a 43% wider field of view when compared to competing prism based sighting systems.
SIG uses low dispersion glass with SpectraCoat lens coatings for what they call “unprecedented edge-to-edge clarity.” It uses an illuminated reticle with a horseshoe dot reticle for either 5.56 NATO, 300 BLK or 7.62 NATO. The system has a motion sensor that activates the reticle illumination from sleep mode. There are 12 intensity levels of illumination.
SIG backs the optic with something they call the Infinite Guarantee. According to SIG, “We will fix your optic or replace it, no charge to you. Ever.” The company stated the “estimated retail pricing” is $1,299.99.
