A good rifle scope is like your right-hand man. Reliable and strong. The Sig Sauer Tango 4 is all that and more. This rifle scope will not just be your right-hand man but also your best friend. The Tango 4 is ideal for long-range shooting and hunting. An excellent choice for tactical engagements. It comes loaded with feature and I’m sure by the end of this review, you will want one too!
Sig Sauer is very well known for their military-grade scopes. They build some of the most durable and strong rifles, guns and optics in the world. It goes without saying, durability is one of the most impressive features of Sig scopes. Tango 4, in my opinion, is a class apart. This beautiful aircraft-grade aluminium, multi-coated matte black tactical scope has virtually zero flaws.
The Tango 4 range has 4 models and 4 reticles that you can choose from. Basically, you get to customize your own scope. In this review, I shall be talking about the Sig Sauer Tango4 6- 24×50 scope. Right off the bat, some of the most impressive features of this scope are the MOTAC, LockDown System and the SBT. Let’s cover more of the myriad features of this scope in this review.
Sig Sauer Tango 4 Review
The Sig Sauer Tango 4 comes with a high quality, durable lens. The lens coating is abrasion resistant that protects the glass lens. Now, the enamouring part of it, is that its Low Dispersion (LD) glass. Low Dispersion glass reduces chromatic aberration in the lens of your optic. In simpler terms, while using the scope in sunlight, it will reduce the flare that you experience in direct sunlight. This not only gives you better vision but also a more accurate aim.
This device also offers MOTAC (Motion Activated Illumination). This is a sensory technology that preserves your battery and enhances user experience. MOTAC is especially handy when you are on the field and do not have spare batteries.
The scope has an illuminated reticle. There are 10 settings, 8 daylight settings and 2-night vision settings. There are stop clicks between each setting. The good clarity of the lens paired with an illuminated reticle gives you a clear line of sight. Now, this product comes with a couple of different reticles options.
You have the MOA reticle, MRAD milling reticle, DEV-L MOA and DEV-L MRAD. All reticle options are illuminated, so you don’t have to worry about brightness. The reticles are etched in the First Focal Plane (FFP) and have a very vibrant and pronounced finish. No blurred lines with this one. The Mil dots in this scope are active all the time.
SIG scopes are always durable and so is the Tango4. It is also waterproof, fog proof and weather-resistant giving you clean visibility. If you’re a firearms savant, you know the importance of a durable scope. The Sig Sauer Tango4 is all that and more.
Magnification & Range
As I said, the reticles are etched in the first focal plane. This means that the reticle zooms in and out while you increase magnification. The reticle changes while keeping the image crystal clear and still. Talking about magnification, the Sig Sauer Tango4 has a 6-24x magnification.
This is a variable magnification scope. With variable magnification essentially you have the ability to choose what zoom you want. The image gets crisper at lower magnification and a little dimmer at higher magnification. But that’s not a problem with this scopes illumination settings.
Another key feature is the 4x optical zoom that this scope gives you with illumination. A 6-24x magnification and 4x optical zoom with crisp clarity is everything. You also get a linear range of view of 3.4ft to 14.7ft at 100 yards.
The scope comes with an objective lens of 50 mm. A 50 mm objective lens is perfect for long-range shooting or hunting. It also gives you better brightness and a visibly higher resolution and image quality in low light conditions. The accurate ranging, distance and bullet drop compensation (BDC) is something you want to experience.
The Sig Sauer Tango4 also features the Lockdown Zero System. This system has a resettable zero, auto-lock at zero and zero stop. This system is a stop-locking turret which allows you to zero in rapidly. This takes away the worry over how far you will turn the dials to return the adjustment back to zero. You can easily remove the fallen key, set it to zero and push it back.
Speaking about turrets, they are super easy to adjust in this scope. The windage and elevation turrets gauge at 52 MOA. All the adjustments on this scope have rubberized texturing. The texturing makes it easier for you to grasp the knobs and turn them around. The adjustable diopter located at the back, allows you to focus on everything. The illumination knob is tactile and smooth. All the adjustments nobs have good spacing from each other and smooth movements. It is important to have smooth movements in your scope adjustments so that they don’t jam up and give you any problems on the field.
The turrets have pronounced clicks and stiff positioning. This scope also comes with a throw lever with fibre optic sights. So that you can see where everything is at from the rear itself. Along with rubber texturing, the caps and knobs have neural texturing. They easily hold zero making this an excellent zero stop scope. The parallax adjustment has a bright green chevron on the side. This tells you exactly what yardage you’re at and makes it easy for you to move the dial around. The SBT (Sig Ballistic Turrets) only make this deal sweeter!
The optics, range and adjustments on this scope are designed in a way to make it extremely user friendly. Apart from those, the zero adjustment has a count on the rear that tells you how many rotations you went up or down. Making everything so convenient.
The riflescope also comes with a free turret and booklet, so you can get a free ballistic turret that allows you to calculate the ballistic drop for whatever cartridge you’re shooting. The booklet is very useful and handy to have. This scope has a myriad of features and the booklet makes it easier for you to understand all of them.
The scope also has a good eye box and a generous eye relief of 3.3″. The parallax is at a 100 yards. Since this scope comes with a variety of reticles, the prices of the model also depends on what you choose.
All the variations and the scope itself are weather-resistant and IPX- 7 waterproof and fog proof. The scope retails around $600, which, if you ask me is a great deal on a scope of this calibre and capabilities. In the market, today you won’t find such a high quality and feature-loaded scope in this price range. So, if you are looking for a cheaper but highly efficient scope, you’ve got yourself a deal.
