Designed for use at medium to long ranges from the first light through to late dusk—and optimized for the AR and MSR (Modular Sniper Rifle)—the Sig Sauer 4-12x50 WHISKEY3 Riflescope provides you with flexible and reliable optic that is enhanced with the addition of the HellFire illumination system which makes the center aiming point easy to see in all light conditions.
The WHISKEY3 is outfitted with a second focal plane partially-illuminated reticle that features Sig's fiberoptic HellFire illumination system, which offers selectable intensity levels from dim settings that are night vision (NVD) compatible all the way up to a bright setting that makes the center aiming dot clearly and distinctly visible. Complementing the magnification range and reticle design are capped low-profile windage and elevation turrets that adjust as much as 60 MOA at precise 1/4 MOA per click increments to improve your first-shot accuracy.
Optically, Sig employs a large 50mm objective lens that gathers copious amounts of light that ensures views remain bright and clear in low light or if you are observing targets at long range on high power. The scope utilizes low-dispersion glass that corrects spherical and chromatic aberrations, so views are clear and undistorted with accurate color and improved contrast and clarity. Ultra-wide broadband anti-reflection SpectraCoat lens coatings further improve light transmission across the entire visible spectrum, while LensArmor coatings provide resistance to scratches and abrasions to ensure views remain crisp and clear. The 1" maintube is made of a light and durable aluminum alloy treated with an anodized finish for durability and longevity. To withstand the harsh elements of the trail, the housing is nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to an IPX7 rating to make it waterproof, submersible, and resistant to internal fogging.
- 3:1 zoom magnification range and objective lens size are optimized for mid- to long-range shooting in all light conditions, optimized for the AR and MSR platforms
- Moderate 4-12x magnification allows the user to scan the landscape for targets on low power with the ability to zoom in and make positive identification and take shots at longer distances if required
- Large 50mm objective provides the light gathering required for extended use from the pre-dawn hours through into late dusk
- Low-dispersion (LD) glass corrects aberrations, improving contrast and color fidelity and correcting lens-edge curvature
- Highly efficient, ultra-wide broadband anti-reflection SpectraCoat lens coatings reduce surface reflections across the entire visible spectrum, improving light transmission
- Extremely durable and abrasion-resistant LensArmor lens coatings ensure the lenses avoid scratches and other abrasions that can interfere with clear views
- 25-foot field of view on 4x, 8.3' on 12x
QuadPlex Reticle Details
- Simple non-illuminated duplex design
- Second focal plane placement: Reticle appearance won't change as magnification moves power up and down; it appears the same at all power settings
- Long outer posts with short thin center hairs
- Center hairs provide precise shot placement at high power with the posts providing a clearly defined aiming point on low power
- Simple design leaves the field of view uncluttered and free from distraction
Use and Handling
