(MANSFIELD, TEXAS 2017/11/16) – Nobody likes taking the time to sight-in their rifle. Wasted time and ammo, as well as frustration when fine-tuning, are just a few of the reasons why laser in-chamber boresights are becoming increasingly popular. Perhaps even more popular is the 6.5 Creedmoor rifle cartridge, which is dominating the long-range precision shooting and hunting game. Lucky for those who stay on the forefront of popular cartridges, Sightmark is proud to announce a 6.5 Creedmoor laser boresight (SM39020) that can also be used for .22-250 chambered rifles.
The quickest way to reliably zero your 6.5 Creedmoor or .22-250 firearm, this laser boresight is inserted into your rifle like a standard cartridge. A red laser shines through the tip of the boresight and out the barrel, allowing shooters to easily align their reticle to the boresight and get on paper for fine adjustments.
The boresight’s brass construction makes it durable and improves chambering and ejection. Since it is the size of a standard cartridge, the Sightmark 6.5 Creedmoor Laser Boresight is easily packed for travel and is extremely lightweight. The boresight is powered by 2x AG5 batteries and includes the appropriate batteries and a carrying case.
(MANSFIELD, TEXAS 2017/11/15) – Sightmark is proud to announce the new Wolfhound 6×44 Mini Shot M-Spec Kit. Military-inspired, these two optics work together to keep shooters on target no matter the situation. Designed for the MSR platform, the Sightmark Wolfhound reticle is ballistically matched to .223, 55 and 62-grain ammunition. Etched into its top-tier glass lens, the Wolfhound’s 6×44 horseshoe reticle features a 7.5 MOA outer ring for flawless close-range shooting, while its .5 MOA central dot and holdovers at 300 to 900 yards allow the shooter to take precise long-range shots.
Included with the Wolfhound 6×44 is Sightmark’s new Mini Shot M-Spec. Built with a high-strength protective steel shield and 100% waterproof aluminum body, the M-Spec Mini Shot is a battle tested optic able to withstand any tactical situation thrown its way. Ideal for target shooting and law enforcement applications, the crisp 3 MOA red dot reticle has up to a 30,000-hour battery life with a 12-hour auto shutoff, giving shooters even more time at the range. The Mini Shot’s ability to mount on the Wolfhound 6×44’s top picatinny rail, gives shooters the option for close range operations and long-range precision shooting, making them effective at all distances. Included in the kit is a Wolfhound rubber lens cover, honeycomb filter, Mini Shot M-Spec rubber cover, Mini Shot low profile fixed mount, Mini Shot AR riser fixed and batteries for both units.
