Newington, NH -(AmmoLand.com)- SIG SAUER, Inc. and the company’s all-new Electro-Optics Division is proud to announce that in its first year of operation, SIG Optics has received top honors in the 2015 Field & Stream Best of the Best Awards in two product categories.
The SIG WHISKEY-5 Riflescope and the KILO-2000 Rangefinder were both recognized for being the top performing products in these highly competitive categories.
“Our expectations for the Electro-Optics Division are very high, but to win Field & Stream’s Best of the Best in two extremely competitive optics categories this early in our existence is a true honor,” stated Andy York, president of SIG SAUER Electro-Optics Division. “There is a bright future for SIG Optics and we are excited to see our products in the field this fall.”
The first product to be crowned number one in its category was the KILO-2000 Digital Rangefinder. Extreme accuracy was the goal for York and his team of engineers when developing the KILO-2000. Updating at 4x per second, the KILO-2000 rangefinder is amazingly fast. Couple that with the ability to range reflective targets at 3,400 yards, trees at 1,500 yards, and deer at 1,200 yards this product quickly made its way to top of the testers list.
The WHISKEY-5 Riflescope was also recognized as being 2015’s top performing hunting scope. The WHISKEY-5 was built to perform in the toughest conditions and bring the hardest of targets into sharp focus with its proprietary HDX optical system. All WHISKEY-5 riflescopes come with a free SBT (SIG Ballistic Turret), a custom lasered elevation dial calibrated to your unique ballistics and environmental conditions. When the dust settled the WHISKEY-5 was the second SIG optic to win a Best of the Best award.
In the 2015 Field & Stream Best of the Best, experts tested more than 150 products to find 42 that met Field & Stream's exacting standards. This award comes as one of the most prestigious honors that can be given to hunting, fishing, and outdoor products.
The 2015 Best of the Best is covered in detail within the September issue of Field & Stream Magazine.
