Thread: Ordered a Sig Cross

  1. #1

    Ordered a Sig Cross

    Ordered this morning at the Sig academy pro shop, to receive a 15% discount.

    Black
    6.5 creedmoor
    18” barrel

    Cant wait... estimated to arrive in august/September.

    Would appreciate recommendations for glass. I am thinking 4-16?

    I've only seen pics online and they look pretty cool.

    What is a ballpark that someone would pay for one at a gunshop?

    Edit to add my glass recommendation- It depends on what you are going to do with it. If long range, get something with at least 24X.

    Is this that "Fix" competitor?

    Looks like MSRP is 1649, and sig pro shop quoted right around 1400.

    I plan on shooting this out to 600 on a regular basis, with a 1000y stretch at the sig academy class.

    So, 4-16 is not enough?

    16X is enough to shoot that far but I like more power so I can see my hits. I have a Vortex 4-16 MIL on my 6BR and have shot it to 1K several times.

    Kinda.

    Side folding stock precision rifle.

    But the biggest differences, the Sig has a 90º throw vs. 45º on The Fix, and the Sig uses an AICS pattern mag vs. The Fix that uses an AR-pattern magazine.

    And of course...the price...The Sig is ~1500 and The Fix is ~3300.
    Seriously guys, are we not doing 'phrasing' anymore?

    Midwest. Far Upper Midwest whever I get the chance
    16x is plenty for 1K. The issue becomes one of both glass quality and mirage when you start getting above 16-18x. Even some high end glass starts showing a bit of edge distortion at higher magnifications. Mirage is a real thing too, and I find myself dialing down my 6-24 quite often to help mitigate that. Lots of folks think “the higher the power...the better” and that’s just not the case. Heck...you could do 1K with a fixed 10x easily. I’m in my late 50s with old guy eyes FWIW.

    This x1000

    16x is plenty for shooting to 1k, that magnification range will get you into the more compact scopes that will complement that rifle well.

    ATACR 4-16
    Mk 5 3.8-18
    Are two solid options off the top of my head that can usually be found for pretty good prices if you shop around. Especially used.

    Stepping up in budget you have the S&B ultra-shorts 5-20, or 3-20, and the ZCO 4-20.
