First Look: SIG Sauer ECHO3 Thermal Reflex Sight

posted on February 26, 2020
SIG Sauer has released the ECHO3 Thermal Reflex Sight, sure to appeal to the predator hunting market. A direct-view thermal sight, the ECHO3 utilizes the company's BDX technology, meaning it is capable of capturing images and recording video in eight different color palettes.

“The ECHO3 is an ultra-compact, lightweight direct-view thermal sight,” said Andy York, president of SIG Sauer Electro-Optics. “The innovative direct-view thermal display on the ECHO3 is a massive improvement over traditional eyepiece-style thermals which induce eye fatigue, and force the shooter to look through the sight. The ECHO3 allows the shooter to sit back and view the thermal display, and when targets are identified, the new BDX reticle technology allows for exact aiming solutions in real time.”

Available in 1-6X or 2-12X magnifications, the sight can be used with nine different onboard SmartBDC ballistic holdover reticles, or paired with any KILOBDX rangefinder. The ECHO3 also features a motion activated MOTAC display that powers up when it senses motion, with over six hours of continuous runtime and six brightness settings. Further, it is adjustable in half-MOA increments, with 150 MOA of elevation and windage travel. To mount, the ECHO3 includes a quick-disconnect mount, with an easily adjustable zoom lens and a throw-lever attachment. A weight ranging from 14.5-16.6 ounces, an IPX6 waterproofing rating and a more-than six-hour battery life means this is a sight for any situation or weather condition.
