SIG SAUER TANGO6T 1-6X24mm Overview

3K views • Published on

Over the years, we've tested a number of LPVO optics from 1-4s, 1-6s, 1-8s, 1-10s. And we're constantly looking for, uh, new options with new technology and just, uh, new batches of features that are brought to the table so that we can bring you guys, uh, some of the best options that are on the market. Again, curating the brand. And this optic right here is one that we feel brings a number of features that other LPVOs maybe don't, but also in just the, uh, package and the form that it comes in. And that is the SIG Tango6T. Now, there's a number of reticle options for this particular scope. There's, uh, second focal plane, uh, options for, you know, having that nice reticle that never changes. That's always very bold and it's easy to see, which could be really nice if you're shooting on 1x a lot.

And then there's of course, the first focal plane, uh, options, which are a little bit easier to use when you start shooting at distance. Your holds aren't gonna change a whole lot. And so what we've got right here is a, uh, first focal plane option. This is the DWLR6 reticle, uh, that we are carrying. And what's really cool about this particular scope is it is a mil-adjusted scope, but it has a BDC built into the reticle. Now this has some pros and cons. The pro is if you, uh, are slapping the scope onto a 16", 14.5" 5.56 rifle, or a 16 or 18 inch, 7 62, uh, gas gun or, or even a bolt gun, but I don't know why you do that. But on a gas gun, that BDC is actually going to line up very nicely. We believe this was tested on a 14.5" or a 16" gun shooting M855A1. But I've taken, uh, this particular optic out on a 16" gun with green tip and the BDC lined up just fine out to 550 meters. So let's go ahead and look at what's in the box.

Inside we've got a manual, which this is actually going to be very important because inside of this it actually details exactly what your scope, uh, information is actually going to do, uh, what the wind dots, uh, typically represent as far as, uh, what mile an hour wind. And then also if you do wanna know exactly what these holds are as far as you know, what mils, you know, the five is or the seven is. Um, it has all of the detail and measurements here on the side. And when I was at the range, uh, recently I took my kestrel, I loaded up all my data, my load, uh, for this Daniel gun and I just shot off of the kestrel going, alright, it's telling me it's 3.2 mills. Fire the round, see if it lines up roughly, uh, with the, you know, range I'm engaging and it lined up very nicely with this 18 inch 308 gun shooting 175 grain ammo.

So very handy. Uh, definitely pull up the reticle. Uh, that is correct. They have all the different ones, uh, listed in here as well. The 7 62 extended and some of the other ones out there. Um, but you're gonna have your reticle information inside of the manual right here. We obviously have the scope itself comes in this very nice, I would say one of the nicer flat dark earth finishes. Um, it does seem to fluctuate a little bit. Some of them are a little bit darker, some of them are a little more golden. Um, but you're not gonna have as much variation as say the Elcan had a pink Elcan at one point and then other ones are brown. Um, but they do differ a little bit, but it is a very, uh, tasteful, uh, flat, dark earth, uh, brown color, which I really like.

There's also this leveling line right here, which can help, uh, speed up leveling the scope. Um, I wouldn't necessarily rely on it though, depending on your receiver and just other stuff going on with the mount. Uh, it could get you in the ballpark, but you definitely, if you really want to have a refined uh, level, you know, you could drop a plumb line or you know, use some bubble levels. But it does expedite the process nicely as far as when you're starting to tighten down, uh, the scope. You just make sure this line is in the middle of where the screws are and you're usually pretty close and good to go. There's also an included throw lever. This is one of the value ads that I really like about this particular optic. And there are three positions that you can set this in. Uh, this is somewhat important and you'll wanna play with this a little bit.

You know, is it sitting against your body when you're holding the rifle close to your body? Do you wanna have it, you know, favoring more, uh, the right side? So when I'm fully magnified, it's sitting on this side or you know, when I'm on 1x, it's sitting on the inside of my body. So there's kind of three sort of locations you could, uh, place it in, uh, based on what you're doing. I haven't usually given it much thought, I just throw it on there and off I go. But you can kind of play with it a little bit and that's nice. There's also a included 2032 battery. Uh, this is an illuminated reticle, uh, because this is a first focal plane though it is daylight bright, it is not red dot bright. Uh, second focal plane optics. Uh, you could get a little bit more juice, uh, powered into the reticle, which is why those are typically brighter.

Um, so I do not rely on this scope, the brightness of the scope to be able to engage on 1x. I'm sole relying on the reticle, uh, the brightness. Is there more for low-light shooting, uh, if I'm using, you know, a night vision clip-on or something like that, um, it is not red dot bright like a Aimpoint or something like that. Um, scopes just generally aren't that bright and that's just how it is. They also include one of these, uh, lenspens, uh, lens cleaners. Um, if you've been buying optics for a number of other companies, you probably already have uh, a gazillion of these. Um, but if not these are really useful. Throw 'em in your cleaning kit, uh, chuck 'em in your pack or whatever and uh, it could just be really handy. So one of those is also included.

There's also a DWLR6-556 reticle. The main difference between that one and, uh, this one right here, the standard DWLR6 is uh, it's more tailored to the 5 56 M855A1 round. So the contract scope that's going out there, uh, the Christmas tree on that one and the BDC on that one only goes to 800. It's also a lot more condensed. Uh, whereas on this one it's a lot more spaced out. You can see just a little bit more and it goes all the way down to a thousand. So as sort of that DMR type scope, if you are throwing it onto a 308 gun, uh, like the Daniel rifle right here, um, the standard model is going to allow you to go a little bit further if that's something that you want to do. Um, but again, if you're not going out to a thousand and you're mainly shooting inside of 500 or 600, with 5 56, the scope still works really great.

Um, you know, if you were to purchase this and go, Hey, I have this piece of equipment, I can throw it on a 7 62 gun, I can use it on my 5 56. Um, there is room to do that and so I actually like having a, an optic that can go down to a thousand if it is a BDC rated scope, just so I have a little bit of flexibility in terms of what guns I have or what guns I might buy in the future. So overall really solid scope option. I've shot with them quite a bit, really enjoy them. Cap turrets to help protect your windage and elevation. And then to change the, uh, brightness of the scope, you are simply going to pull outwards so that it's not gonna get bumped by accident. And then you will do the twisty twist. And there's also some night vision modes, which shooting passively with an LPVO is pretty useless in my opinion. But there are some really low modes if that's something that you're into. Uh, but I'm primarily keeping the scope itself closer to, uh, the nine eight area. And then I just keep it in the off position in the middle, lock it back down, and I'm ready to turn the illumination on when I need it.
