Steiner T6Xi LPVO

Steiner Optics Company is unveiling a new LPVO (low powered variable optic) as part of its new, fully American-made T-Series riflescope product line.

The T6Xi 1-6x24 LPVO is a first-focal-plane (FFP) optic, which means that the reticle either grows or shrinks depending on the specific magnification setting the optic is set to. It also means that any holding points or subtensions are true and proportional at any distance, without regard to the level of magnification of the scope. This LPVO features the KC1 reticle, which was developed by Jon Dufresne of Kinetic Consulting. At 1x, the KC1 has a larger than normal illuminated ring for rapid target acquisition and quick reactive shots. When the T6Xi is fully zoomed into 6x, the reticle displays a more traditional set up with bullet drop stadia and subtensions offering the opportunity for a little more precision. The T6Xi is made from an extruded aluminum housing to help it withstand hard use in rough conditions and environments. The optic is fog proof and waterproof and water resistant to a depth of 33 feet.
