Under the name KILO, at SIG Sauer you can find a wide range of rangefinders (pun intended), and the new KILO5K laser rangefinder monocular is the latest addition: advertised as “the next generation of the award-winning KILO laser rangefinders”, it is “packed with the advanced technologies of the new KILO K-Series” – which means that it also features SIG Sauer’s proprietary LightWave DSP Gen II rangefinder engine with extended range XR technology, integration with the BaseMap app, on-board Applied Ballistics capabilities, and complete configurability with all SIG Sauer Electro-Optics BDX devices.
SIG Sauer KILO5K laser rangefinder features
This is how Andy York, President, SIG Sauer Electro-Optics, introduces the device: “The new KILO5K can range reflective targets up to 5000 yards, trees up to 2500 yards, and deer up to 2000 yards.” “In an industry first, these rangefinders allow users to range a tree, rock or deer and instantly drop waypoints into the BaseMap app to help navigation to that target, integrated BDX technology provides ballistic solutions out to 800 yards with Applied Ballistics Ultralite or will sync with external devices featuring Applied Ballistics Elite, and the K-Series now include a complete suite of onboard environmental sensors for real time ballistic solutions.”
The LightWave DSP Gen II engine of the KILO5K 7x25 mm laser rangefinder monocular can be used in multiple target modes: Extended Range (XR) for distant targets, Fog mode to cut through fog, rain and snowy conditions, as well as First, Best and Last target modes.
A vivid red segmented OLED display provides range to target, elevation holdover and wind holds. All KILO K-Series rangefinders leverage Low Energy / Long Range Bluetooth 5.x for multipoint Bluetooth connections and improved connectivity to BDX enabled riflescopes and sights.
The BaseMap app provides remote waypoints on ranged targets and can be fully configured with the SIG Sauer BDX App, allowing hunters and outdoorsmen to plan, navigate, and share their outdoor adventures. “Having the ability to remotely mark the location of any distant object with accuracy through your rangefinder provides the outdoorsman options and advantages they’ve never had before; it’s one of those features you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it, and we are excited to partner with SIG Sauer Electro-Optics to make it happen,” explains Jeff Balch, CEO, BaseMap, Inc.
The SIG Sauer Electro-Optics KILO5K 7x25 mm laser rangefinder changes hands for $779.99 (MSRP) and comes with a black/grey carry pouch and lanyard.
