07/15/2019 Shepherd Scopes Launches SAWMAN Series of Tactical Optics

July 24, 2019

Seminole, FL – Shepherd Scopes and Marine Corps Scout/Sniper and Navy SEAL Sniper, Craig “Sawman” Sawyer, are proud to announce the new collaboration line of SAWMAN series tactical optics. These next-level scopes are more ruggedized and effectively camouflaged, simpler to aim & fire, and easier for gloved hands to manipulate under adverse weather conditions than any other scope line – right out of the box. This product line includes five scope variants to suit multiple shooter needs.


“To work with Craig Sawyer, such a renowned and respected military professional, has been a dream for us here at Shepherd Scopes”, remarked Salvo Technologies Executive Vice President, Patrick Bass. “Our mission was to blend the optics expertise at Shepherd with the field knowledge of Sawman, himself, to deliver an unmet market need for both tactical and hunting use. This partnership is really about bringing consumers a scope line designed for the toughest environments, with ultimate fast target acquisition and the stealth required in the real-world.”


“As a Navy SEAL Sniper, I always had to modify my stock scopes to make them much more rugged and user-friendly in the field”, said Craig Sawyer. “The engineers at Shepherd Scopes had an appreciation for that and wanted to team up to produce a scope line that incorporated these unmet needs into a product that had all the proper fittings and features that would allow a war fighter to open their scope and go right to work. Shepherd makes high-quality, simple-to-use reticles and uses the best glass in the world. This line is incredible, and I’m thankful for their willingness to build something for the end-user in the field that has never really existed before.”
