SIG Sauer had one of the hottest booths at SHOT Show 2015, and for good reason—the company rolled out its new optics line for the first time, further cementing its new place as a do-it-all company within the industry. Though much of the line is of a tactical nature, there are a few hunting-specific products to take note of, particularly the new Whiskey riflescope.

No, the new optic isn't named with the beverage in mind—SIG has assigned each product in the new line with a military-style moniker. There's a Tango, Romeo and Bravo, too, among others. Whiskey was the designation assigned to the hunting-specific scope, which will be produced by the companies new Electro-Optics Division, with facilities in Portland.

“With our first entry into the military and sports optics marketplace, we’re raising the bar on both performance and design,” said Andrew York, President of the Electro-Optics Division. “The visual product language of our optics line was created specifically around the ergonomic designs and precision engineering of our pistols and rifles. The new products embody the essence of the SIG Sauer brand in every way.”

The hunt-ready Whiskey line have been designed with features that hunters will have a hard time saying no to—like low dispersion glass, a rugged chassis, capped windage and elevation turrets. Whiskeys are second focal plane reticle design, meant to get better performance at long ranges. Like the rest of the line, they include a free SIG ballistic turret, which can be laser-engraved to the user's ballistics.

You can bet that we'll have more information on SIG's entrance into the hunting riflescope market later this year in American Hunter magazine.
