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!!

I bought this scope for my Remington 700 5R Gen II .308. The clarity at all magnifications is very clear and in true color. At 1000 yards I am able to see targets very clearly at mid 15X to high 25X magnifications. I set up my scope with 0 MOA base and I am still able to get 13 mils of elevation. This is enough adjustment I need for my shooting range out to 1000 yards. Overall, I am very happy and my next scope is definitely going to be the T5Xi 3-15X50 for my AR10. For the price, Steiner-Optics has something good going with the T5Xi line of scopes.

I've been bow hunting for over 25 years; however, I had to have rotator cuff surgery in 2016. So, I decided to take up hunting at extreme long range and needed to purchase my first rifle. As I progressed through my 6 months of studying, I concluded optics is equally or more important than the rifle precision. I spent another month studying optics, i.e., lens physics, durability, engineering, feedback, cost, etc. Clearly, military optics are the best but its designed for a non-big game hunting application. Oh, it's also far too expensive. My studies indicated half to two-thirds the cost of the rifle is a good price to pay for a scope. I set a scope budget of $2000.00, equal to the price of the rifle. However, I need ranging capability, durability, fog resistance, and clarity in low light situations. At this budget point, several high-end brands become a possibility. Since I am a solo-hunter, ranging and durability became my primary segregating criteria. It was easy to confirm the durability from customer feedback but there was little information about ranging. Now, I began a study of reticle design. The Special Competition Reticle (SCR) is the best on the market. The SCR allows measurements from 0.02 to 2.00 mils, precise target acquisition. Decision complete!Yes, this review is somewhat of an academic study. As a bow hunter, I know the importance of first shot accuracy and the Steiner T5Xi5-25x56, from my humble analysis, is the best on the market at assisting with precise target acquisition.

My buddy had this exact scope on his long range bolt gun and i shot it a lot and loved it so much i bought one too. This will replace my bushnell HDMR scope. Great clear glass. Only down side i can think of is the reticle isnt as great for long range prs type shooting as a christmas tree or h95 like my bushy had. But much better features for dialing then my bushy had. And glass is nicer and clearer. Overall great scope. Wish they had more reticle options though.

In short, I really love this scope. I was looking for a scope that was made in USA (100% would have been nice, but German or Japanese glass was acceptable). The scope appears ruggedly built and is fairly light, considering its size. I love the turrets and the clicks are not mushy. For shooting F-class, MOA turrets would be somewhat better (0.785" for 1/4 minute vs 1.08" for 1/10 MIL), but not worth waiting for. Also, range in yards for the parallax adjustment would have been nice since most ranges in the USA are sized in yards, but no big deal, it doesn't take that long to start thinking in terms of mils. One thing to note that may be useful to someone trying to decide on this scope vs the 3-15X model. Be aware that the 5-25X model is big. It barely fits in my current case when mounted on the rifle but, more importantly, I used Steiner "T series" rings (love the built-in level) and had to mount it as far forward as possible (rings nearly up against the turret / ocular housings and mounted extreme forward on a 30 MOA rail) in order for my eye to be in the proper position. (This is most critical at 25X.) The 3-15X model is 3.5" shorter and would probably be easier to mount. But I would still go with the 5-25X because it's just so great.

I bought this a while back for my Ruger precision rifle. Very impressed by it. Never had a high end scope before, this one is amazing. Still learning to use it to its full capability, but am sold on this scope. might get a ARD for it , but I am not a sniper, so the sunshade is fine for me at this time. I have no regrets, would recommend the Steiner brand to anyone looking for a high quality scope.

After reading all the reviews online, I decided to see for myself how well this optic performs for me given its excellent price point and excellent user features. Needless to say, I am sold on the product craftsmanship and optical excellence demonstrated by this rifle scope. Fit, finish, and the features make this the scope to own for those rifleman wanting to invest wisely. Thank you Steiner!

I own a vortex HD gen 1 and a vortex HD gen 2 also a leupold mark 6 and numerous other hig end scopes. I am in the military for over 16 years and I get to play with a lot of glass. My first impression was wow this scope is big but is so light for its size and category the turrets are tight and not mushy the feed back is really positive and the glass is clear I put this scope above all my other scopes in clarity and how easy to set the zero stop is a well made scope.

Upon first outing at range for initial sight in, mounted to Savage 308 bolt action rifle, I was on target at 100 yards within 20 rounds, I was on target at 300 yards 10 rounds after that, and finally on target at 800 yards before I expended the 40 rounds I brought with me to the range. Oh, and I did not have spotter. Excellent optics and great light gathering allowed me to do it.

I purchased 2 of these at the same time for PRS & hunting for .308 and 300WM platforms...a bit overkill for the .308, but for the same cost as the 3-15, why not. Mated scopes with Spuhr ISMS and these are rock solid. These scopes are mid-price scope segment leaders to me and are easily competitive with scopes that cost several thousand dollars more (cost-benefit is close to 95% of the top end scopes IMO). I also looked at the MX5i and TX5i prior to purchase, but could not justify the difference. Excellent optical clarity, layout of functions (Really like the elevation turret mil setting Windows) and construction, as well as product support/ warranty. I will remain a loyal Steiner customer for years to come.

Previous to purchasing I had pasted with a friend's 3-15. Compared the glass side by side with a "higher end" scope and the steiner's coatings seemed a truer color. So, I was sold for 800 less dollars the t5xi had all the options one needs in a tactical scope. Love at first sight as soon as I pulled my 5-25 out of the box now wanting the 3-15 for another gun. I think this is the prize egg in the $1-2500 price range

I love that you can see what power you are on from behind the rifle. Turrets are awesome, they feel, sound and lineup great. The turret windows and second turn indicator is revolutionary.The SCR reticle is awesome, enough said. Finish looks great. Sunshade included, tenebraex caps and a throwlever. Packaging was well thought out and is very nice. Made in USA.The glass looks great from what little time I've spent behind it thus far. Easy to get behind, with a fairly forgiving eyebox. Tons of eye relief to.Bottom line is, for the features, quality, priceand warranty it can't be beat. If the 2 I have hold up and track well, I will be ordering another.Which brings me to the 4 rather than 5 star review. There is/was tracking issue with early versions of this lineup. Steiner has taken it on the chin and has came up with a fix, that works. The upgraded internals have been tested by some well respected people within our circle and the reviews are nothing but positive. Only time will tell.

I just got bought this scope 4 days ago. It is mounted on my new long range build. Remington 700 in 260 Rem. As an older shooter my close vision is not as good as it used to be and with other scopes I had to wear my reading glasses to focus the reticle. With the TXi 5-25x56 I don't need my glasses. The target and reticle are sharp and clear. I can't wait to finish my barrel break in and load development to see how a great optic will extend my range.

This is my third Steiner Scope and once again amazed with the clarity and responsiveness of the turret adjustments. Mounted this on my Ruger Precision Rifle and zeroed the rifle in 3 rounds and with consistent shot groups from 100 to 600 meters right away. Both shooting partners achieved the same performance at various ranges with no adjustments needed.

I just bought this scope and shot for the first time yesterday. Amazing the optics and features. I was debating between this and a NF, and am glad I purchased the T5Xi. Very happy with my decision and the scope. #[email protected]

Excellent feel to the turrets. Tracks well. Great features, ie Illumination time-out and reticle design. Optical clarity is excellent, can see a doorknob at over a mile. Very bright image on medium power settings. Best scope I own.

First thing I notice when taking it out of the box was how well built it was. I also love the clear glass and SCR reticle which fits my eye well along with the large low profile turrets. I paired this scope up with some low Vortex precision matched rings and a Talley 20MOA rail which makes the hole setup feel very solid.

I bought this scope 3 days ago. Was a choice between nightforce and this one. Will set up on rem 700 .308 20" for the long range 300+feet. Its a perfect state of the art optic.

Very happy with my Steiner T5xi 5-25x56 mounted on my Nemo Recon 300win mag. Scopes glass is extremely clear and sharp. The turrets snap in place and hold very well. Very easy to zero in and holds zero with the best of them.

Does the paralax have to be so tight? I Can hardly turn it with two fingers. Is there any Way to loosen it?Other than that, it's a great scope. Solid, crisp, clean and precise clicks.

I bought this for long range shooting and so far I am very pleased with how the scope performs and the oustanding customer service from Steiner.

Buying this to put on a 300 RUM. I have researched and spoken with several long range shooters and decided on this scope. I have Zeiss and Nightforce and the glass in the Steiner is superior.

I wanted a quality scope to go on a long range 30 06 ar 10. I read and researched many any found this one to rise my curiosity. A lot of money to spend..... but I took it out with a 20 moa offset mount and wasnt disappointed in the least . the clarity is amazing and the moa clicks a breeze and firm to use. The long range accuracy is well withijn projectile tolerance.

I bought two of these to go on matching Ruger Precision Rifles for myself and my son. Should be the perfect setup. I have only looked through the glass so far and the clarity is impressive. I pick up the second Ruger this week and hope to set them up and shoot soon.

The good:-clear optics-first focal plane AND illuminated-good choice of reticles-looks great on my rifle. People look at my rifle and they think I know what I'm doing, until I start talking.-probably overkill for my rifle.The bad:-The only bad thing I can say is it's a notch under Schmidt and Bender's PMII series.-Some internet people say there are tracking issues. This is not a problem for my shooting purposes.Conclusion:I paid less than half the price of the Schmidt and Bender, and I got 100% of what I really need. If I'm spending someone else's money, I'll go with the Schmid and Bender. If I'm spending my own money, I'll use this scope and work on upgrading my own skills. For this price, I have no problem recommending this scope. It does everything I need it to do, and the scope is not the weak link in my shooting. (It's me.)

This is my very first high end glass and I am so amazed at the fit and finish, the quality, and the clarity of this optic. This is my first and definitely NOT my last Steiner product.

I just got this from my wife for Xmas (of course I told her what to get, it's too expensive to take a chance) and it looks great. I am waiting for delivery of a Spuhr mount so I can attach it to my AI AX 308. Out of the box, it looks as good as promised. I will update when I get to try it out later this week.

This is my second Steiner T5xi and I continue to be impressed with this rifle scope. Put this on my new riffle build and shot it out to 1000m on the weekend! Awesome!

Just received the T5xi 5-25x56and mounted it on my .338 Edge. The scope is very nice in regards to clarity and craftsmanship. I think when you are paying more for an optic you tend to be very critical on clarity and craftsmanship and have an expectation that sometimes can be intangible. This scope seems to have surpassed my expectation. I will post another review after taking it out on a few trips.This is the first Steiner scope I've owned and reasonably sure it will not be my last.

This scope is excellent, the turrets movement is clean & crisp, resolution and clarity is good throughout the range, I really like the elevation knob for the second revolution

I've been searching around for a long range scope. I love Steiner binoculars, have some predators and the wildlife xp 10x44 which I absolutely love. There are plenty of great high end scopes out there but I knew I couldn't go wrong with Steiner and they did not disappoint. I couldn't be happier. The optical quality is top notch, reticle is perfectly centered unlike some nasty reviews I've read. Built rugged and all turrets turn flawlessly. Can't wait to sight it in. On a coyote.

Just received scope in the mail...clarity looks great and feels sturdy...reticle is off center by a 1/10th of a mil but not a big deal. Really like the ocular lock...now just need to get to the range and shoot with it!

This scope delivers. Very crisp glass even at full magnification. Turrets have crisp clicks as well. Definitely would recommend you will not be disappointed.

I received my Steiner T5XI 5-25 X56 a couple days ago. I also have a Zeiss T FL Victory Diavari Riflescope. I find the clarity of my Steiner to be equal to my Zeiss at considerably less cost.I have not tested the tracking but if it is equal to the superior construction I will be extremely happy.I will have to wait and see.
