The Military 5-25x 56mm is part of the Military riflescope line that was introduced last year. The Steiner Military riflescope line was designed by Steiner with input from Special Forces and international weapons experts, and it includes the 1-4x 24mm, 3-12x 50mm, 3-12x 56mm and 4-16x 50mm scopes.

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. An illuminated, glass-etched Mil-Dot reticle is standard, and it is ideally located on the front focal plane, so sub-tension remains unchanged over the magnification range for quick and easy target identification, ranging and accuracy. The digital illumination offers 11 intensity levels (seven night and 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. The first revolution of 100 clicks is indicated by white scale on the knob. Moving into the second revolution for clicks 101 to 195, a small Rotation Indicator automatically pops out and conspicuously protrudes from the base of the turret to remind the shooter to use the second scale indicated by grey numbers on the dial.

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 $2,700.

Headquartered in Germany, Steiner has been widely acknowledged as a world leader in the manufacturing of high quality optics since 1947. In addition to the outdoor, hunting and marine markets, Steiner provides products to military and law enforcement worldwide. Allied forces around the world—including the U.S. Army and countless law enforcement agencies—have made Steiner their binocular of choice.
