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.

First I wish to thank the American technicians for creating an excellent product here in the USA! Keep up the awesome work! This my first Steiner product and will definitely not be my last. 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!

After countless hours of research I decided on the Steiner scope. I am very happy with my decision. Steiner has a great reputation for making quality optics and rugged and back it up with a life time guarantee so I don't have to worry, I plane on getting more rifles in the future and they will have Steiner scopes on them thank you.

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.

Awesome scope with great clarity and eye relief. Even at full magnification there is no blurring of the object or target that you are acquiring. You can't go wrong with this item and it will last for everything you do. Love this scope. Thanks

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.

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.)

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.

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.

Bought the Steiner 5TXi 5-25 56 and mounted it on my new Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor. I noticed that the clicks of elevation and windage gave an exact predictable result on the target. I would go to the zero stop and it was exactly where it was set from the previous setting. Clear sharp optics with precise adjustments everytime.

The glass is great. Can easily range out to great distances. The adjustment knobs make very distinct clicks so you can count them easily and the zero stop feature is always very nice. The windows allow the knobs to sit low which is very nice as well. The illuminated reticle is nicer than on my other brand scope. The more time I spend behind this glass the more it's becoming my favorite scope. I will most likely be sticking to Steiner optics from now on.

I am scope girl. I LOVE optics. I shoot 1000 yards. I have purchased MANY scopes. I have NEVER been so impressed with the... I guess the durability and the clarity at the same time. You usually get one or the other. Now, this is my husband's scope, but I WANT ONE. Last year I watched my husband place a three inch group at 1200 yards with a very nice, very expensive scope. The Steiner T5Xi is even nicer (I know the grammar is not correct). I do not think I can state how amazing the scope is. 1000 yards is easy for this scope.

I have used it a few time since the purchase but find it to be a very good fit for myself. The zero stop was easy to set. And you will never be lost after moving the torrents. Once I am able to get out to shoot some distance targets 600 to 1000 meters I will update this current post. I do wish that this scope came with lens covers for the price. But did fill out the warranty and waiting for them to arrive.

This certainly is a high quality product worthy of the Steiner name. When it comes to glass, I have a hard time finding anything better with a tactical reticle. You can read all about the features, all I would say is that all those features play a role in the overall concept of this scope. I give kudos to Steiner for listening to the precision community. This is a very viable product that delivers value at its respective price point.

Turrets and illumination are crisp and very user friendly. Glass seems to be sharp, and once diopter is adjusted, view is quite clear. Power knob runs up counterclockwise. Looking forward to getting this installed and out to the range.

I purchased this optic from Reliable Gun yesterday and couldn't stop playing it. It will probably be a while before I actually go out and shoot with it, but just I have a fantastic view from my office and the clarity of the glass appears to be right up there with other high end optics that cost much more.The turrets have nice feedback with crisp audible clicks. Big target knobs give you something to really grab on to, even with gloves on. I really like the feature where the numbers shift up so you will never lose track of how many revolutions for elevation.The packaging was excellent, well padded, came with everything neatly organized. Sometimes unboxing an item is just as exciting as the purchase and it seems to be a trend now to film or photograph the unboxing and put it online.Looking forward to testing out this optic soon!

This is my first long range rifle project. I put this on a Remington 5R 24".

The glass is as crystal clear as some of the $4000 dollar scopes. I was set on buying a NF prior to this purchase but a friend of mine suggested I give the T5Xi a try instead and I'm glad I did! You can't go wrong with this scope, you will be happy with your purchase!

I looked at many makes (including S&B, they only offer a 10 year warranty) and models before deciding on the Steiner. The first focal plane reticle and features are well thought out and useful. Quality is represented though out the product. The reticle allowed me to zero the scope within 3 rounds once on paper. My advice, check the T5Xi out while shopping for optics, you will be impressed and not get sticker shock

So I purchased this optic to sit on top of a Desert Tech Covert 338. I have been "shooting" my whole life but just learning about true long distance shooting and accuracy. It's incredibly fun and challenging. This scope is the ticket to my mile long shot. I have a LONG way to go (pun intended) and a lot more to learn but each step seems easier with the right equipment.In short, it feels like I am getting similar features, quality and functionality as scopes for twice the price. My next purchase will be the 2-15x50 for the 280 AI.

It's an outstanding rifle scope. My next scope will be the T5xi 3x15-50mm. Can't wait to get it. One scope for long range and the other scope for even longer range. Outstanding scopes to compete with and go after my trophies.

I just got this to pair with a Savage 12 LRP - everything about it says quality. Very clear glass, very crisp clicks on the turrets, smooth power and AO adjustments. Very nice matte finish as well. This is a top-end scope at a very reasonable price - excellent value.

Just purchased a T5xi and am impressed. I shoot competition tactical matches and was looking for a reticle fine enough to range at long distances. This does the job very well. Very clear, and bright all through the power range, no fading on the edges. The eye relief for my old eyes is not very forgiving. The sweet spot is small, but not a problem, just need to be on it. I don't need or use the illuminated reticle but it's a good one. Not to much is lite up which is perfect in my opinion as you can turn it up enough to be a distraction or possibly create a some blind spots. The elevation turret is impressive. Large numbers in the turret let you quickly see where you are at. It dials from O all the way up and doesn't miss a beat. The clicks are positive and accurate without being to loud or sloppy. The zero stop travels 3 tenths past zero for a little down if you need it, so you have to remember to come up a tad to get back to zero. It is a BIG scope, so be ready for that. But most in this class are, just sayin. Overall I don't think you'd find a better scope in its class for the money, when compared to others, it's even cheaper for what you get. I'm very pleased and will buy other Steiner products in the future. Happy shooting!

Bought this optic a week ago very pleased. The reticle is a little busy and gets some getting used too but overall a great optic

Great scope for the money. It has features that compare to much more expensive scopes. I can only compare the glass to my bushnell elite ERS. The glass is as good if not better. I haven't mounted it to my rifle yet so that's not entirely fair. To me. The value is great. The scope seems extremely well made and the glass is very bright and clear. It's also light weight for a scope this size and the warranty is hard to beat....

Very well built scope, turrets lock into place well, optics are superior and its reticle is true. Will definitely buy again and recommend this product to others looking for a long distance scope.

The glass is clear and bright. Turrets are the best Ive ever used. Absolutely returns to zero every time with no tracking problems.

First Steiner scope. So far, I'm impressed. Love the location of the controls. Like the illumination and parallax control. Best feature is the numerical identification on the elevation turret. Nice feature, eliminates the need for zero stop.Optics are clear.

I was fortunate enough to win this scope at the Sniper's Hide Cup. I had never used a Steiner before, so I was excited to try it out. The scope feels very durable and has a straight-forward design. The optical clarity is great and performed well in low light. Eye relief felt great and the reticle thickness is prefect in my opinion. I really like having the isolated cross hair in the SCR reticle. The turrets are definitely my favorite part. They are very crisp and have the right amount of resistance. You would have to bump the scope pretty hard to accidentally move the turrets a few clicks. The texture of the turrets and magnification ring are also great features, giving a very positive grip. From my testing, I found that the clicks are just a hair off when dialing to 10 mils. But it returns to zero and is consistent. Making a small elevation factor correction in my ballistic calculator makes this a non-issue. My single complaint is that the glass on the eyepiece is very close to the edge. It feels likes it will be more vulnerable to scratches than other scopes that I own. Nothing scope caps can't fix. Great scope, it's not going anywhere.

Perfect choice for someone who wants a ffp mil-rad based long range destroyer! Looks bad to the bone on my 300wm custom savage.

This scope is excellent for a beginner who wants a great scope to learn on. The numbers on the dial means never getting lost on your elevation. Crystal clear and illumination works great.

I am currently having a 30x378 custom rifle built. I searched for high-quality FFP scopes from all manufacturers and compared the features, quality, and price. After considering Leupold, Vortex, Bushnell, and Nightforce, I chose the Steiner because it has all the desired features at a great price. The low-profile turrets will be helpful in the field, because they won't hang up on anything. The illuminated reticle can easily be turned off without having to dial all the way down. The elevation turret see-through window is great! the only thing that is a bit difficult to get used to is the SCR reticle.

In all my years of shooting, it seemed that the scope manufacturers just didn't make anything that really fit my tastes. I have owned Leupold, Nightforce, IOR, and Vortex and they have always been lacking in the features that I want. They were good quality in glass clarity and were mechanically good, but they either didn't make the features that I want in a scope or they had a bunch of features that were useless to me. This T5Xi fits my requirements perfectly.Lets talk about this scope. It has plenty of magnification on the top end and goes low enough to be useful even at the shortest of ranges. I finally get low profile adjustment knobs that speak the same language as the reticle (mil - mil) and the reticle offers just enough measuring and hold capability without being too cluttered. Illumination of the reticle is easy to use and there are OFF positions between each of the brightness settings. This is the perfect package for me as I don't care much for tall adjustment turrets that sometimes spin too easily and I don't have to get out a calculator or have a scratch pad to convert MILs to M.O.A.. One more thing about the knobs that is just the cat's meow. When you complete on full revolution of the elevation knob, the numbers in the windows automatically index to the next set. You get 0-11 on the first rotation and 12-23 on the next one. NO more having to count rotations and no "pop up" indicator that you have to look for when dialing.Even though the mechanical features are very attractive, lets no forget about the heart of the scope and the overwhelming reason that I chose it. Clear, clear, and clear is the only way to describe the view through this scope. High quality lenses are a constant on Steiner products and I couldn't be happier with this one.This scope is going to find it's way to a lot of new ranges and places to shoot.

bought this because I used a friend's scope on the range. same model. All I can say is OMG! Clarity is amazing, index is right on the money... I eat part is didn't have to wait another two years to pay for high end optics when this one is high end without the price... good for less than half the price. Very pleased. Hooked on Steiner!

I was looking for a FFP rifle scope in a 5-25 magnification, I had looked at Nightforce, USO, and S&B. I have a friend who recommended taking a look at the Steiner scopes. I checked them out and was blown away by the clarity, the repeatability, and the robust construction of the optic. The heritage warranty is nice to have as well. Great scope.

I have been wanting a top level scope for many years. After much research I have decided on a 5 x 25 x 56 Steiner. I have yet to mount my new masterpiece, but I plan to shortly on a .257 Weatherby and take out West for a pronghorn hunt.

I have researched a lot of optics, Steiner is the best. American made and assembled in the US means a lot to me. Out performs nightforce, vortex and leupold.

It took some time to find the right scope for me. Ive never shot long range before but I wanted to give it a go and I wanted to learn to do it right. Steiner T5Xi felt like the only scope that met my demands. The retical is very crisp and clear. While I do not find the illuminated reticals necessary they are a nice touch to have, especially so when you are shooting at a steel plate that has been painted black.

Just purchased this scope today. Have mounted it on a Blaser 93 LRS2 308 Win. Have a number of high end scopes, this glass rates right at the top of the list. I especially like the "never lost" turrets, as well as the 1st focal plane reticle divisions. Can't wait to get it out and dialed in!

Just recived it and have not had the opportunity to see what it wiil do. I think it will be all I will ever need. This thing is a beast I really love the the never lost elevation turrent. Very generous eye relief with large clear sight picture. I cant wait to see what It will do on the range. The price was a little tough to chew and swallow but I've got a safe full of cheaper glass that didn't make the cut.

I just received this scope, and cant wait to set it up on my precision long range rifle. Out of the box, initial quality seems very high. Presentation and finish are superb. Optical clarity is excellent, which was no surprise given the quality of other Steiner equipment that I have had years of field experience with. Can't wait to see what it will do at 1000yds.

This scope exceeded my expectations, especially in the glass departement. The clarity is there from lowest magnification to the highest. Overall I would reccomend this to a friend. The only thing I dislike is the way the clicks feel on the turrets when dialing down. Other than that they are great and seem to track good.

I got this scope a couple of weeks ago, and it is excellent!!! The quality of the optic is superb. The glass is super clear, reticle is great, and the adjustment knobs are high quality. It is ridiculously accurate, in a couple rounds I was able to get it zeroed and shoot a 5 shot group with a span of approx .6 inches. I look forward to using this scope in competition, hunting, and just for fun target shooting. Very happy with the product and the customer service/warranty that steiner provides.

This scope is excellent. Great magnification range, love the reticle and turrets. The only reason I gave it a 4 and not a 5 is because there are a couple of minor cosmetic flaws. These flaws will not affect the scopes performance as they are purely cosmetics flaws in the finish however they are very minor.

I bought this scope on the recommendation of the gun store owner where I do business for a Sig 716. I've shot with it 3 days in a row now and love it. Very clear glass, easy to use turrets, and fantastic eye relief. I have a Mark IV Leupold and the Steiner definitely takes the cake.
