I will tell you something you don't often see here for some reason (toward the bottom). Yes the glass is good, its not like the Schmidt and Bender 8541 PMII scopes I carried in the Marine Corps but honestly this is good glass. I think it's superior glass and light transmission when compared to my Mil-Spec NightForce NXS and would say it's also better than my Leupold ERT also. The tube here is bigger (34mm) then both the other scopes I can compare to, so that obviously helps too. Additionally these turrets are amazing, love that they roll over on the second rotation so your never guessing. I like these better than the old generation SSDS Schmidt and Benders windows that went yellow even though they were great. I will personally never buy a scope that's not first focal plane, never. I will also forever only buy scopes with a mil radian based retical that doesn't also have mil adjustments. I spent years as a Scout Sniper Instructor for the Marine Corps and teaching a new student to operate a mil/mil scope vs. a mil/minute scope is much easier in my opinion. We have had both and I have taught both as we had the XM3 rifle for years which came with a NightForce with a mil-dot reticle and minute adjustments. Anyway the Steiner T5xi has it all, first focal plane, mil/mil reticle and this SCR reticle is just like a TMR (tactical milling reticle) and this lends itself to much more accurate mil measurements for ranging target size/distance. OK THE POOR PLANNING! So Steiner makes the T5xi scopes in the USA, which I love! But they make the Military line of scopes in Germany and the good accessories like the 56mm ARD (anti reflective device) also known as a honeycomb or kill flash ONLY fit the German thread patterns. I see no reason why within the same company there would be different thread patterns, it's simply poor planning and communication! While I haven't looked into it I would bet this is the case with replacement or different length sun shades. So if you want a great American made scope with great features at a fair price offering a great value proposition, this might be for you. Just keep in mind you wont be able to buy any accessories other than scope rings for the most part. So if that is a deal breaker for you and you don't want to "cat-eye" your optic and prefer the ARD for some reason this isn't for you. Everything said hopefully Steiner will machine up some thread adapter bodies to help out the customers. In conclusion as a former Marine Scout Sniper who doesn't have an unlimited budget, this is the right blend of quality, features and overall value for me. I would love to have a S&B but cant honestly justify the the price increase for glass and a decrease in features that the Steiner offers. I would not hesitate to carry this optic into combat and feel it would serve me just as well as anything I was ever issued. Keep your powder dry patriots!JD. (0317)

Great light gathering - crystal clear glass - postive clicks with just enough resistance. Love the SCR recticle for long distance. Sometimes, you get more than what you pay for, but not often. This is one of those times.

I've had my eye on the T5xi Steiner since it was first announced. The turret design was quite revolutionary at the time and generated a lot of buzz in the shooting community. When first released, there were numerous reports of tracking issues, and honestly I lost interest in the scope until the problems were corrected. Since then, the scope has earned a reputation among scope snobs as not being the "best" in terms of optical quality/performance (very subjective) when compared to higher end scopes in its class or others close to its price point. Nevertheless, as consumers, we all have our own set of certain criteria or what we deem as important, and value certain features over others when it comes to practical use optics. I had a chance to handle one at one of my local outfitters and found it to be of exceptional quality in terms of both physical and optical attributes. In my experience this scope is as good as anything in its class and has a lot of great features going for it. To my eyes, the glass is very good (not sure what some people have bitched about). Edge to edge clarity is spot on, colors are neutral with no overly cool or warm tones, no detectable distortion, the SCR-Mil reticle is very nice and highly practical, the power ring resides in the goldilocks zone (not too easy, not too hard), very nice elevation turret with excellent click adjustments, the locking diopter is a great feature, and the scope is built super solid. Without a doubt I would take this into combat and have confidence in its ability to withstand extreme conditions. The only real negative is that there is some CA/purple fringing present, but it's no worse or better than a lot of scopes out there, to include an S&B PMII I once owned. You can purposely induce CA since it's inherent in all scopes (managed more effectively in some models over others), but much of the CA here is negligible or goes away when you focus on the floating center dot and the parallax is properly set for the target. There are times when it rears its head and unavoidable (as with most scopes I've used), and there are times when you don't see it at all, even at higher magnification. And if it is there, I'm not distracted by it and it doesn't cause me to miss a shot. The bottom line is I can see my targets and therefore I can hit my targets. In my opinion, there aren't a lot of scopes that check off most of the blocks that I find highly desirable at this price point. For someone considering any optic, the best thing to do is get your hands on one for yourself and be your own judge. The internet is full of people who will give their opinion and tell you what you should or shouldn't buy based on their perception of excellence or expectations. Keep in mind that it is just their opinion. Think, experience and judge for yourself. In my opinion, the T5xi is worthy of the Steiner name.

Alright, here we go.... The GLASS is pretty dang good I have to admit. I own ALL of the T5xi Mil Radian offerings. I feel like the glass in my 5-25x is better than my 3-15x. The M5xi line says the glass is "HAND PICKED". This makes me believe that whatever line we're talking about, there can and will be variances in clarity. That being said, I'm very, very pleased with the clarity of my 5-25x56. In fact, it's my clearest glass and I own Burris, Bushnell Elite Tactical XRS II as well as Vortex Viper PST Gen II. Most people would assume the Steiner would be the best out of those and they would be right about that. My brother in law owns a Night Force NXS and I think that scope is horrible honestly. I'll be honest here... I paid $1,350 for my 5-25x56 two or three years ago when I purchased it as a blemish. There's a little machining mark on the objective lens housing, which I consider completely irrelevant in every way. What a freaking steal.... Moving on to the heart of the matter. GLASS: Awesome.... seriously AWESOME. TURRETS AND RETICLE: My elevation turret is dead nuts on the money so far. In fact, I was just up at the famous North Springs ELR range in Price, Utah about a week ago with family and we were hitting milk jugs at 1,000 yards. Here's the raw truth on the performance of my turrets. I got my DOPE and dialed 8.7 mils elevation for a 1,000 yard hold shooting the Tikka T3x Tac A1 in 6.5 Creedmoor loaded with 140 grain Federal GMM Sierra Match kings bullets. The 8.7 was dead on. This is good because with the SCR reticle, YOU MUST DIAL IN because it isn't a Christmas Tree Reticle. That being said, on the horizontal part of the reticle you have 2/10ths mil tic marks for wind holds, which are fantastic. * After we were done shooting at 1,000 yards I dialed all the way back down and then POINT 3 MILS BACK UP TO ZERO ( funny how one reviewer returned his because he didn't realize why Steiner does that, albeit sad that their customer support reportedly couldn't explain it to him ). So now I'm back down to my zero stop and I take a shot at the bullseye at 100 yards. I KID YOU NOT, it was a PERFECT SHOT. Literally PERFECT. The center circle I was aiming at was the size of a dime and I hit it dead center. So for ALL the old 2015 or thereabouts turret problems that Steiner did have... they have obviously corrected that problem years ago and what you have now is a scope with amazing glass, great turret tracking and great "non busy" reticle. I do prefer floating center dots to the cross hair though because I think you can really fine tune your zero better and hit small things at distance better with floating center dots... especially fine floating center dots. Granted I have hit the round 2.5" underbelly of a Coke can at 500 yards with relative ease with this SCR reticle... but it's easier with a fine floating center dot. I DO APPRECIATE that this reticle is FFP and has illumination. FFP is appropriate for this magnification range and the illumination is always welcome if done well..... which it has been. The turrets, while accurate, are somewhat mushy feeling. I have seen others say the same about this t5xi line and I would have to agree. It would likely be challenging to dial in by feel alone. I recommend getting your hands on one and testing it out before buying if that is a deal breaker for you. Maybe you won't find them mushy like myself and others have. The "Never Lost" turret feature is really great IMHO. That said, for those shooting ELR keep in mind there may only be 24 mils of elevation available or 2 full rotations, despite you using a canted base. Please verify that before purchase if you think you need more than that. I doubt you will but for those shooting that far, they will likely know what they need before hand. ROBUST BUILD QUALITY: This scope appears to be built extremely well and my feeling / belief is that it is extremely robust. I have 2 of the T5xi 1-5x's and one goes on my SCAR16S and the other goes on my SCAR17S. Steiner customer service told me when I asked about the SCAR's famous optic destroying recoil impulse that their T5xi line would be right at home on the SCAR with no need to worry about any failing of any kind, be it the red dot illumination feature or the reticle / glass loosening, resulting in a canted reticle down the road. 34mm Tube is a must for this magnification as well as a 56mm objective lens. Steiner delivers on all fronts here. WARRANTY: Among the best in the business. Steiner Heritage warranty is a lifetime, transferable warranty. You just can't beat that. Bushnell by comparison only offer UP TO a 30 year warranty depending on which scope you buy. I suppose that's the end of my essay on the T5xi 5-25x56. I think this is probably THE BEST GLASS you can get for the money if you can get it for under 2K. I have not looked through the M5xi line or the new 7 either but the T5xi truly impresses me. Finally, the locking diopter = muy bueno!!
