Steiner, a trusted name in the area of hunting and tactical optics continuously introduces new optical innovations to their rifle scope offerings. These range from new scopes for military to tactical and hunting applications.
M6Xi Riflescope Great for Tactical or Hunting Platforms
The M6Xi 1-6×24 is a new addition to the M Series scopes. The M indicates in Steiner’s product lines that it is a scope that is supposed to be used for military applications. Yet, there’s no reason not to have a closer look at this scope if you’re interested in a scope for hunting or tactical use.
The scope is designed to provide fast target acquisition and a crystal-clear image whether you’re in the brush or on the streets. It’s usable for pretty much any kind of application.
The M6Xi features a 1-6x magnification range. The tube features a 30mm diameter and the scope comes with Steiner’s illuminated Rapid Dot reticle. The field of view at 100 yards is 118.1 feet to 23.7 feet depending on the selected magnification.
The reticle is positioned on the 2nd focal plane. It provides aiming points for both 5.56 and 7.62 caliber rifles to provide shooters with fast and easy targeting.
The illuminated reticle offers 11 different illumination settings. 7 of these are intended for night use and 4 for the day. At each end of the dial, you can find an Off position to switch the illumination off. Between each setting, you can also find quick standby levels that put the scope into a standby state while allowing you to return instantly to your previous setting.
The glass components of the scope are made from crystal clear glass and multi-coated to prevent light reflection. Windage and Elevation turrets offer precise adjustments. The scope is designed and made in Germany.

It weighs 22 ounces making it a lightweight scope that is durable and rugged. The length comes in at 11.25 inches. The scope is nitrogen purged and is waterproof and fogproof. It can be submerged up to 33 feet (10 meters) and offers a fixed parallax.
FinnAccuracy MSR2 Reticle for the M5Xi 5-25×56 Scope
Another new introduction by Steiner is their new Multipurpose Sniper Reticle (MSR2) that is exclusively developed for Steiner together with FinnAccuracy. The main improvements compared to the MSR reticle are gradual enhancements with regards to target acquisition in low, mid and full magnification settings.
The new reticle is currently exclusively available on the M5Xi 5-25×56 sniper scope. It German made and built to strict military specifications. You can rely on the scopes to perform in even the harshest conditions.
The reticle sits on the 1st focal plane and the scope provides a 5-25x magnification range with a 56mm lens and a 34mm tube. This setup provides excellent optical performance in any lighting situation.
The reticle center is illuminated and uses the latest lend etching technology. This ensures precise setup with slimmer lines to provide the shooter improved visibility of the target at high magnification levels.

T5Xi Rifle Scopes with MOA Reticle options
The T-series of Steiner rifle scopes is designed to be used for tactical environments. Steiner added their popular Special Competition Reticle (SCR) with MOA adjustments to the T5Xi 3-15×50 and 5-25×56 models.
Both models feature a massive 34mm tube and large lenses to provide excellent clarity and low-light performance. The scopes are designed for rough use and are rugged and dependable.
The illuminated reticle is on the first focal plane. It’s an etched glass reticle with center part illumination. Adjustments can be made in ¼ MOA clicks. The illumination brightness can be adjusted in 7 levels for night use and 4 levels for day use.
The scopes feature low-profile turrets that are resettable. A Steiner exclusive is the Second Rotation Indicator. It shows each mil or elevation through an indicator window on the elevation turret. The numbers on the scale change after each ¼ MOA rotation. This adds additional information for the shooter and prevents from getting lost in the dialing process.
