Below I’m checking out one of my favorite models, the Pinnacle—specifically the 3-18×44 version. A very versatile scope with fantastic performance top to bottom, the Pinnacle has some great utilization in hunting and distance shooting.
When looking to shoot long ranges consistently, you are going to have to be willing to spend more for a quality product. With Sightmark, you get more than you pay for. The Sightmark Pinnacle is an investment that pays off in the long run.
Marksmen demand excellence, as well as functionality. With a scratch-resistance and a multi-coated finish, this top of the line premiere Japanese glass is protected by an extremely durable aircraft-grade aluminum tube, giving it the ruggedness to be taken wherever the shooter decides to adventure. With top-notch materials and American designs, Sightmark has a high-quality product that exceeds expectations.
Pinnacle Riflescope Review
This model is one of the best scopes on the market right now. The first focal plane reticle is an innovative design that increases the size of the reticle the more you magnify the scope, giving you an advanced look at your target. Also included are ballistic-matched BDC dials. A single-piece tube construction provides a sturdier and more rugged scope. The aircraft-grade aluminum is built to last and survive adverse conditions including water, fog and shock. Included turret caps give you the ability to leave your caps to your liking. The reticle has a variety of illumination settings giving you the ability to adapt to your situation. You can be as precise as possible with 0.1 MIL adjustments. This model Pinnacle has a magnification range of 3x-18x, objective lens of 44mm and a tube diameter of 34mm all while being only 33.5 oz. Overall, this is a fantastic riflescope any hunter or shooter could use in his arsenal.
