Sightron, an established name in the precision optics world, has just released a new line of premium riflescopes that they call the SVIII 5-40×56 ED. The new line has two different illuminated first focal plane reticles to choose from, making them ideal for low light hunting, competition, or tactical applications. The SVIII 5-40×56 ED is Sightron’s first 40mm main tube rifle scope, and like all Sightron optics, it has been designed to deliver maximum, consistent precision and unwavering durability in the most serious of environments.

The SVIII 5-40×56 ED line features a new internal zero-stop mechanism in its turrets which provides positive, audible feedback when the zero has been reached. The tactical turrets are precision-tunable and work in conjunction with the first image focal plane (FFP) reticles to allow minute adjustments at any range. The close focus has also been improved to about 10 meters, adding to the versatility of the SVIII 5-40×56 ED scopes. Reticle options are between the LRM or MH-6. Both are illuminated and controlled by an external, 11-position dial and are powered by common CR2032 batteries.

Every air-to-glass surface within the scope has been coated with Sightron’s new MC-777 lens coating. This coating allows for more light transmission and even better clarity than what the scope's extra-low dispersion glass already provided. The SVIII 5-40×56 ED’s 40mm tube is also waterproof and shockproof, but if the scope fails to withstand your abuse Sightron also offers a lifetime warranty.

Besides the scope itself, in the box you will also find two wrenches for installing and adjusting the SVIII 5-40×56 ED, lens covers, a sunshade and even a battery. It also includes a high-quality set of 40mm rings for mounting to a Picatinny rail.
