First Look: Sightmark Presidio Line of Scopes
Sightmark is introducing the Presidio line, a brand-new riflescope family designed to a variety of needs. These new scopes represent the next iteration of Sightmark riflescopes, giving users powerful optics that are both durable and accurate. The Presidios are available in a variety of magnifications and have bright, red illuminated reticles that can help you get on paper at the range, win an elite 3-gun competition, or harvest game in the field.
The windage and elevation turrets on each scope in the Presidio line is rigid and produces audible clicks that inform the shooter about every adjustment. The aggressive, exterior knurling on the adjustment knobs is easy to grip, even in inclement weather or when your hands are sweaty. The durable, aircraft-grade aluminum bodies can withstand the harshest of environmental conditions, and each scope has a battery life of at least 150 hours.
