Sightron S1 4-12X 40 mm G2​

While Sightron’s catalog includes riflescope models appropriate for virtually any application, the S1 G2 series is the company’s effort to prove that quality hunting glass need not be expensive—and the 4-12X 40 mm version that we evaluated (shown) may be the most versatile of the lot.

Second-focal-plane scopes built into aircraft-grade-aluminum 1" main tubes, the waterproof, fogproof and shockproof S1 G2s provide clear, high-contrast, glare-free viewing, thanks to their MC-333 multi-coated lenses.

The capped turrets offer a 60-m.o.a. total adjustment range for both elevation and windage, and the 1/4-m.o.a. adjustments yield distinct, audible clicks. Reticle options include a simple duplex, a mil-dot and the company’s BDC-style Hunter Holdover Reticle.

MSRP is $250. For more information, visit
