The ESA biathlon lineup has grown! A multitude of Savage rifles are now available, including a left handed model. The basic model will still be the FVT, but with the addition of the new snow sights, any bull barreled MkII rifle can be used!
The new snow sights utilize an upgraded rear sight from AirForce Airguns originally designed for 10 meter 3-position competition. The sight features large 1/8 minute click adjustment knobs that may be reset to zero and the threaded diopter is compatible with Anschutz inserts. We have been very impressed with this optics performance in biathlon and are pleased to be able to offer this upgrade to our customers.
The new snow sights are available as a retrofit kit for FVT owners looking to upgrade their rifles, and does not include the Williams Target Globe, which gets reused from the FVT. The sight kit is user installable, but does require drilling and tapping one #6-48 hole in the rear of the receiver for the rear sight with the included #30 drill bit and tap. All rifles ordered with sights installed will already have this done. Price for the retrofit kit is $250. Price for the snow sights when ordering with a rifle is $275.
