Steiner have announced a new line of optics in their tactical line, the T6Xi series. The brand new optics will be offered in the following magnifications; 1-6×24, 2.5-15×50, 3-18×56 and 5-30×56.
Based in Germany, Steiner was started by Karl Steiner in 1947 and the company has a long-standing reputation for producing rugged optics with high quality material.
The T6Xi series will include some interesting features such as Steiners new low-profile ‘Never-Lost™’ locking windage and elevation knobs. A second rotation indicator will also be present on the optic.
A diopter locking ring is included to prevent inadvertent movement once the reticle is focused. All models in the T6Xi series are set to include a throw lever to assist magnification changes. Another extra that I often find I have to get after purchasing a new scope is scope covers. Luckily Steiner is offering high quality flip up Tenebraex covers on all optics in the series.
As these optics are designed for tactical applications in mind, the reticles on offer reflect this work.
These scopes are made in the U.S.A and are listed as being waterproof, fog proof and shockproof. Prices range from $1699 USD for the 1-6×25 model upto $2499 USD for the 5-30×56 model.
Further information about the T6Xi series will be posted once we know more.
