Just five months ago in March 2018 the US Army announced its selection of SIG Sauer's TANGO6 1-6x24 riflescope for their Squad Designated Marksman Rifle (SDMR). The optic is the final component to be selected for the complete SDMR system that will be put into service. Now it's also available on the commercial civilian market. Our team member Franco has been at SIG Sauer in the USA and sums up his personal impressions exclusively for our readers.
