Sig Tango-MSR LPVOs


Today, we’re diving into the world of Low Power Variable Optics (LPVOs) — those game-changing scopes you’ve probably seen at ranges or on “the tube.” Think of LPVOs as the Swiss Army knives of the optic world: versatile, dependable, and ready for whatever your shooting day throws at you. Whether you’re lining up for a precise shot in the brush or scanning a field for targets, an LPVO’s got your back, shifting gears from close to long-range faster than you can say “bullseye.”

Let’s talk about a serious contender in the LPVO universe: the Sig Sauer Tango-MSR series. These bad boys aren’t just scopes; they’re your new best friend in the field or on the range. Whether you’re a seasoned sharpshooter or just getting your feet wet, the Tango-MSR series offers something for everyone, combining quality, performance, and that Sig Sauer reliability we all know and love.

P.S. I am completely biased in my appreciation for these LPVOs as I use them; I love the price point and performance. 

What is an LPVO and Who Uses Them

So, what’s the deal with LPVOs? If you’re scratching your head, wondering what these letters stand for, let me explain: Low-Power Variable Optics.

These are not your granddad’s fixed scopes. LPVOs let you switch up magnification on the fly, from basically zero to whatever your model supports—it’s like having multiple scopes in one.

Now, who’s using these optics? Honestly, who isn’t? Hunters dig them for their flexibility; one minute, you’re scanning wide, and the next, you’re zoomed in on a deer sneaking through the brush. Competitive shooters love the speed—snap from target to target without losing your cool. And let’s not forget the tactical crowd; when things get up-close and personal, an LPVO can make all the difference, giving clear sight without tunnel vision.

The real magic of LPVOs lies in their versatility. In the hunting world, they let you adapt to changing environments faster than a weatherman “predicts” rain. For competitive shooting, they’re all about speed and accuracy — no more fumbling with gear when seconds count. In tactical situations, they provide clarity and a field of view that can mean the difference between success and a really bad day.

Features to Consider in an LPVO

When you’re eyeing up an LPVO, think of yourself  – you gotta know what to look for.


This is the heart of the LPVO. A good range means you’re ready for anything, from close-quarters bust-ups to long-range precision. More zoom isn’t always better; it’s all about finding that sweet spot that suits your style.

Objective Lens Diameter

Bigger isn’t just better; it’s brighter. A larger lens pulls in more light, making your view clearer, especially when the sun’s playing hide and seek. But remember, bigger lenses can mean a bulkier scope, so balance is key.


These are the crosshairs that guide your eye and bullet to your target. There’s a whole zoo of them out there: dots, circles, crosshairs, you name it. Some are simple; some are like a Swiss watch. The right one for you depends on how you shoot and what you shoot at. Features like illumination can be a game-changer in low light.

Light Transmission and Clarity

A scope that turns the world HD even in crappy light is worth its weight in gold. It’s all about the glass quality and coatings – they’re what make the difference between a shot hit and a shot missed when the light’s fading.


Your LPVO needs to be tough – weatherproof, shockproof, and zombie-proof (okay, maybe not that last one). It’s going to face rain, mud, and the occasional drop. A rugged scope saves you from heartbreak and keeps you shooting no matter what.

Remember, a great LPVO blends all these features in a package that feels right for you. It’s about matching the tool to the task and ensuring it fits your personal use.

The Sig Sauer Tango-MSR Series

This lineup isn’t just another set of scopes; it is one of the highest-regarded LPVOs at this price point. Sig Sauer has thrown everything but the kitchen sink into these beauties, blending traditional toughness with cutting-edge tech.

The Tango-MSR series is all about giving shooters options without overwhelming them. We’re talking about a range of magnifications, from the close quarters 1-6x24mm to the versatile 1-10x28mm, and everything in between. Whatever your mission, there’s a Tango-MSR that fits the bill.

But what really sets the Tango-MSR apart are the unique Sig Sauer touches. The glass on these units offers clarity and light transmission that’ll give you a little more time at the range or in the field as the day winds down. And the reticle? The BDC6 reticle has built-in windage and holdover marks alongside 11 illumination levels.

Durability? Check. These scopes are tougher than a two-dollar steak, ready to handle whatever you or Mother Nature throw at them.

The Tango-MSR series isn’t just about seeing your target; it’s about connecting with it, every time, under any conditions. It’s about having confidence in your gear, knowing it won’t let you down when the moment counts. That’s the Sig Sauer promise and the Tango-MSR delivers.

Tango-MSR Variants

Tango-MSR 1-6x24mm

This little powerhouse is your go-to for a wide range of scenarios. Whether you’re patrolling the back forty, clearing brush for that perfect shot, or competing where speed and precision count, this scope’s got you covered.

What makes the 1-6x24mm stand out? First off, its magnification range. From 1x for that no-scope, both-eyes-open approach, all the way up to 6x for when you need a closer look, it’s versatile. This is your do-it-all scope for medium-range engagements where split-second decisions matter.

The 24mm objective lens hits that sweet spot — large enough to let in plenty of light for clear images, but not so big it feels like you’re hauling around a telescope. It’s the Goldilocks of scopes: just right for dawn, dusk, and everything in between.

Now, while the Tango-MSR series may not come with all the bells and whistles of higher-end models, what it does have is reliability and clarity. The lenses are designed for optimal light transmission and clarity, ensuring that what you see is what you get. No guesswork, just clear, crisp images.

Plus, it’s backed by Sig Sauer’s Infinite Guarantee. That’s right; they’re so confident in this thing that they promise to back it up forever. You’re not just buying a piece of equipment; you’re getting peace of mind.

The Tango-MSR 1-6x24mm is for the shooter who needs flexibility without compromise, reliability without the hefty price tag, and performance that punches above its weight.

Tango-MSR 1-8x24mm

Step up from the versatile 1-6x24mm and you land at the doorstep of the Tango-MSR 1-8x24mm — a scope that takes everything good about its sibling and dials it up a notch. This is for those of you who love the 1-6x but find yourselves craving just a bit more reach without sacrificing the up-close-and-personal clarity.

What’s the big deal with the jump from 6x to 8x magnification? It’s all about stretching your legs (or in this case, your eyes). That extra magnification can be a game-changer in environments where your targets are typically a bit further out. Think open plains, rolling hills, or long, abandoned airstrips. It gives you that extra edge when identifying and hitting targets that are just out of comfortable reach for the 1-6x.

But don’t think the 1-8x24mm has forgotten its roots. At the low end, it still offers that 1x magnification, perfect for quick, both-eyes-open shots. It’s like having two scopes in one: a close-quarters battle optic and a mid-range marksman’s scope.

In terms of features, the Tango-MSR 1-8x24mm keeps it real with clarity and reliability. The 24mm objective lens remains, providing a good balance between size and light intake, ensuring that your view remains bright and clear, from dawn till dusk.

The main comparison point here with the 1-6x24mm variant is your operational range. While both scopes offer superb flexibility, the 1-8x24mm just gives that extra zoom for when precision at distance becomes critical. It’s like having that little extra gas in the tank – you may not always need it, but when you do, you’re thankful it’s there.

The Tango-MSR 1-8x24mm is for the shooter who’s looking to push the limits just a bit further without stepping into the territory of bulkier, more cumbersome high-power scopes. It’s all about finding that sweet spot between versatility and extended-range capability.

Tango-MSR 1-10x26mm

This scope is for those who venture beyond the usual boundaries, offering a magnification range that takes you from no-magnification-needed close-quarters clarity to the detailed precision of 10x zoom. This isn’t just an upgrade; it’s a leap into a new class of flexibility and potential.

What sets this beast apart? Let’s start with the magnification. 1-10x means you’re covered from practically point-blank range to distances where you’re counting on those extra few times zoom to make the shot count. It’s the scope that says, “Yes, I can handle that,” no matter what you’re pointing at.

Then there’s the 26mm objective lens. Slightly larger than the 24mm on its younger siblings, this lens offers a subtle but noticeable bump in light-gathering capability, meaning clearer, brighter images, especially as you start stretching into those higher magnification levels.

But here’s the kicker: despite the enhanced capabilities, the 1-10x26mm doesn’t throw portability out the window. It manages to keep things relatively compact and lightweight, ensuring that your rifle remains balanced and maneuverable, even with this powerhouse mounted on top.

So, who’s this scope for? If you’re someone who likes to keep their options open – whether that’s taking shots that are a stone’s throw away or reaching out to those at the edge of visibility – this is your tool. It’s for the shooter who demands more from their optics, who needs that wide magnification range without wanting to lug around a heavy, bulky scope.

Compared to the smaller lens models like the 1-6x24mm and 1-8x24mm, the 1-10x26mm stands out by offering that extra range and slightly improved light performance, all while maintaining a footprint that won’t weigh you down. It’s the ideal middle ground for those looking to bridge the gap between close combat and significant distance without skipping a beat.

The Tango-MSR 1-10x26mm is the Swiss Army knife of the LPVO world – versatile, powerful, and ready for whatever the world throws your way. Whether you’re scanning dense brush or pinpointing a target in the open field, this scope is ready to rise to the occasion.

Tango-MSR 1-10x28mm

The Tango-MSR 1-10x28mm takes the foundation laid by its siblings and adds a touch of sophistication and range. This is the scope for those who say, “Go big or go home,” but still appreciate the nuance of a well-crafted tool.

The 28mm objective lens gives an extra couple of millimeters over the 1-10x26mm. It might not sound like much, but every little bit counts in the world of optics. This larger lens size translates into better light gathering, which means brighter, clearer images, particularly as you push into higher magnification ranges. It’s all about getting that edge when clarity counts, especially in low-light conditions.

The magnification range remains a generous 1-10x, offering unparalleled flexibility. From close quarters to extended ranges, this scope doesn’t just cover the same ground as the 1-10x26mm; it does so with a bit more grace under pressure, thanks to that larger lens.

But here’s where the 1-10x28mm really stands out: it’s the scope for the discerning shooter who knows that in long-range engagements, details matter. That extra lens size isn’t just about light; it’s about getting a fuller, more detailed view of your target, giving you the confidence to make those critical shots.

In comparison with its siblings, the 1-10x28mm is like the premium version in a lineup of already impressive LPVOs. While the 1-6x24mm and 1-8x24mm are about adaptability and balance, and the 1-10x26mm ups the ante with greater range, the 1-10x28mm is the culmination of all these features with added emphasis on enhanced clarity and detail at distance.

Who should consider this scope? It’s for the shooter who finds themselves often transitioning between varying distances and needs that extra bit of visual clarity and light. Whether you’re engaging targets at varying ranges on the fly, or you need the versatility to move from dense wooded areas to open fields without changing gear, this is your scope.

The Tango-MSR 1-10x28mm is for those who demand a bit more from their optics, who appreciate the nuances that a larger objective lens brings to the table, and who require the flexibility to adapt to any scenario without sacrificing performance.

The reticle is designed specifically for Modern Sporting Rifles, and the illuminated BDC6 reticle with 11 brightness levels is calibrated for 5.56 NATO, making it practical for various distances. Despite being priced lower than expected, the scope was considered a great value​.
  2. OpticsPlanet User Reviews: Positive reviews highlight the good value of the SIG SAUER TANGO-MSR 1-6x24mm Rifle Scope, praising its clarity, illumination, and included mount. The scope outperforms competitors like the Strike Eagle and Bushnell in terms of illumination and mount quality. However, a negative review mentioned an issue with reticle illumination failing after short use​.
  3. GearMovement Review on the 1-10x 28mm Model: The reviewer noted the scope’s excellent eye relief, ensuring comfort during long shooting sessions. Image distortion is minimal, even at the edges of the field of view, providing unwavering fidelity across the magnification range. The reticle is clean and uncluttered, with a Bullet Drop Compensation (BDC) feature and 11 brightness levels for illumination, making it suitable for various shooting conditions​.
  4. American Gun Facts Review: This review focused on the 1-10x model’s comparison with higher-priced options, noting that it comes with a sturdy mount included, making it a plug-and-play system.

The scope maintained zero even after heavy use on a .308 caliber rifle, achieving an average of 1.1MOA with premium ammunition, which speaks to its reliability and accuracy​.

This Sig Sauer Tango-MSR series is generally well-regarded among users for its clarity, value, and performance, though, like all products, it may have some drawbacks depending on individual use and expectations.
