Has anyone had a chance to run one of the updated Tango 4s? Looks like they updated the turrets and some other features. I have only seen the for sale at Rainier Arms.

There was on old thread a few months ago where Sig exchange the OP's Gen 1 model with one of these new models under warranty, but I don't recall seeing any feedback from him on it. I am actually sending in my Gen 1 tango 4 this week for warranty work and I'm curious to see if it comes back as a Gen 2. If I do get upgraded, I'll let you know. The new model's turrets appear to be similar to the way it's done on the Tango 6, hopefully they'll be an improvement because the turrets are my least favorite aspect of my Gen 1

They eliminated the locking turrets, and mine was very mushy on the clicks.

I traded mine for a gen 1 specifically for the turrets.

Unless I missed something, there was not a single mention of locking turrets in the instructions it came with, and I couldn't find anything from SIG about it, and they damn sure didn't lock anywhere out of the box.

Got my warranty scope back, Sig upgraded me to this Gen 2 version. @chevy_man is right that this version doesn't have locking turrets at all. I guess to be fair, the Gen 1 didn't really have true "locking" turrets either, they just locked on zero. Non-locking Elevation isn't too big a deal for me since it has a zero stop, which BTW is done very nicely on the new design. Losing the zero lock on windage is for sure a bummer though, I wager that was entirely driven by cost. These Gen 2s seem to be retailing for a bit less than what the Gen 1 models originally came out at.

Another nice change is a redesigned parallax/illumination turret that's much lower profile, about even with the size of the windage turret now. They also threw in two extra accessories which didn't come with the Gen 1: a sunshade and a removable throw lever that works pretty well.

Nice thanks for the info. I am happy with my Tango 6 and would like to have the same reticle at a lower price point. Might have to check one out.
