Citadel Riflescopes Overview

From CQB to long-range precision, SIghtmark’s Citadel series of riflescopes offer feature-rich, premium performing optics for competitors and hunters.


Designed for 3-Gun competition, long-range precision shooting and hunting, Sightmark’s series of Citadel riflescopes are available in three models—5-30x56mm (SM 13040LR2,) 3-18x50mm (SM13039LR2) and 1-6x24mm (SM13038CR1). All models feature illuminated red reticles with range-estimating capabilities, finger-adjustable windage and elevation adjustments and low-profile, locking turrets. Citadel long-range 5-30x56mm and 3-18x50mm models have first focal plane optic systems for mid- to long-range precision shooting, LR2 reticles and 0.1 mil windage and elevation adjustments. The tactical 1-6x24mm model has a CR1 second focal plane reticle for quick target acquisition at close- to mid-range and ½ adjustments. The one-piece 30mm tubes are constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum with a hard-anodized finish. Submergible to one meter, the Citadel scopes are recoil-rated to .50 BMG and feature 70 to 100 hours of battery life. Eleven brightness settings provide sharpness and clarity in any shooting condition, including low-light. A side diopter adjustment knob accommodates any shooter. 3-18x50 LR2 The 3-18x50 LR2 is a first focal plane riflescope, with precisely tracking .1 Milliradian (Mil or MRAD) turret adjustments, perfect for mid- to long-range shooters. With a magnification range from 3x up to 18x, long-range enthusiasts will have no problem engaging targets out to 1,000 yards or further, dialing in DOPE or using holdovers. It features a large 50mm objective lens and LR2 mil-dash reticle complete with subtensions and a lower holdover reference grid with precise, consistent incremental values throughout the magnification range. 1-6x24 CR1 Designed for rapid close- to mid-range engagements, the second-focal-plane Citadel 1-6x24 CR1 Riflescope features a 6:1 zoom ratio with 100-yard parallax; .223-calibrated reticle; ½-MOA per click windage and elevation adjustability; and a windage/elevation adjustment range of 120 MOA. 5-30x56 LR2 The Citadel 5-30x56 LR2 first-focal-plane riflescope features are identical to the 3-18x50 but with a larger objective lens (56mm), as well as increased base and top magnification powers of 5x and 30x for long-range shooting, up to 1,000 yards away.
