Shvabe Develops New Compact Night Sights


Russia’s Shvabe, a part of the Rostec State Corporation, has presented new compact night sights with lenses characterized by 3x and 5x magnification. Both models have a metal housing and are designed for monitoring terrain and firing hunting weapons under the conditions of natural night illumination and at temperatures ranging from -40 to +40 °C.

As compared to previous versions, the new sights are fitted with a modernized electro-optical converter of the third generation capable of adjusting the screen brightness that can be used by a hunter to regulate the image brightness, depending on the illumination, contrast and background.

In addition, the new sights are characterized by objective lens adjustment from 10 meters to infinity and 35 meters to infinity. This option makes it possible to set a clear and sharp image of the object depending on the distance.
