Truly, the world became a better place when the low-powered variable optic (LPVO) was created. To me, it is one of the most versatile optics you could ever use, especially the 1-6x and 1-8x LPVOs. Born for a tactical and competition demand, I would even take an LPVO over a traditional hunting optic for all but the longest shots. Clearly, I’m a fan, and I’ve been fortunate to try out many different models from many different manufacturers. The latest I’ve tested is the Model SAI 6 from SAI Optics, which has quickly become one of my all-time favorites.
