Steiner Introduces New Military 5-25x-56mm Riflescope

GREELEY, Colo. (April 4 , 2012) — Designed for use on long-range, tactical and sniper rifles in a combat environment, the new Steiner Military 5-25x-56mm extends the shooting range and provides outstanding visibility even in the lowest light conditions, thanks to its high magnification, large objective and unmatched optical elements. The Military 5-25x-56mm is part of the Steiner Military/Tactical riflescope line that was introduced last year. The riflescopes were designed by Steiner with input from Special Forces and international weapons experts, and they include the 1-4x-24mm, 3-12x-50mm, 3-12x-56mm and 4-16x-50mm scopes.

“Steiner’s reputation for its military-grade optics is known around world, and the new Military 5x-25x riflescope incorporates all the technology and expertise that we have developed over 65 years,” stated Rob Siemers, general manager. “It is the ultimate long-range sniper scope and one that we are proud to put our name on.”

The Military 5-25x-56mm riflescope features a rugged 34mm one-piece extruded aluminum main tube and world-class Steiner optical elements, featuring broadband Anti-Reflective coated optics for maximum light transmission. The G2B Mil-Dot reticle is illuminated and glass-etched, and it is ideally located on the front focal plane, so subtension remains unchanged over the magnification range for quick and easy target identification, ranging and accuracy. The scope can also be equipped with the popular MSR reticle.

The digital illumination offers 11 intensity levels (seven night / four day) and a battery-saver position between each level with two OFF-positions at each end. The digital illumination and parallax adjustment are combined in a left-side turret for comfort and ease of use, with or without gloves on.

The windage and elevation on the Military 5-25x-56mm scope are designed for precise adjustment. The windage knob, located on the right side of the tube, is calibrated for up to 5 mils of adjustment for both left and right adjustment. For shooting at extreme distances, the elevation knob on the Military 5-25x 56 riflescope offers up to 19.5 mils of adjustment over the course of two turret revolutions.

Fully waterproof to 10 meters and shock proof to 900 G’s, the Steiner Military 5-25x-56mm riflescope is also nitrogen filled to be internally fogproof. This new long-range military riflescope will retail for $3095.99.

Headquartered in Germany, Steiner has been widely acknowledged as a world leader in the manufacturing of high quality optics since 1947.
