Schmidt & Bender is a premium optics company based in Germany. Their history begins in 1957 with the development and manufacturing of riflescopes for hunting by moonlight. Since then, they have focused exclusively on designing and producing extremely high-quality sighting systems that hunters and tactical marksmen rely on to deal with the most difficult of lighting and environmental conditions. Successful missions often depend upon your ability to improvise-adapt-overcome. Consider the extreme savings, obstacles & hardships endured towards attaining success:  when such efforts boil down to the moment of a single shot determining whether a life is saved or a trophy is bagged, excuses are irrelevant.
Variable power sighting systems, like the 3-12x50 Classic Riflescope offer hunters and shooters a tremendous amount of flexibility. By being able to dial up, or down, your zoom power you are assured that a clean shot can be taken even if your quarry moves from brush into the open field. Hunters of dangerous game greatly appreciate this feature when they find themselves up close and personal with beasts than can create a 'So, who's the hunter now?' situation. You definitely do not want to be stuck at 16x when there's a charging Cape Buffalo 20 yds away. Switching to a lower power on your ocular will re-establish your position as the hunter by allowing for rapid target acquisition, and thereby keeping you and your comrades out of harms way. Your sight picture will register quickly and easily thanks to the 3.7 (94mm) of eyerelief. This scope sports a large 50mm objective, for a bright as daytime sight picture, even during twilight. The optics are superb, so not only is your image bright, it is also rich with detail and crystal clear. Dependability and repeatability are two key factors in any scope purchase. The fine mechanics and tight tolerances of all the Schmidt & Bender scopes are truly world class and are a benchmark to which all others can be compared. Shot to shot, you'll be on target when this scope rides on top of the firearm you choose to fit with the best of the best.
To use a riflescope with your firearm, you'll need a mounting base and mounting rings in addition to the scope itself. Bases attach to your firearm and rings attach to your scope. By affixing the scope mounted rings to the rifle mounted base you create a reliable, accurate, and secure sighting system. Proper spacing of the rings, as well as the ring height should be considered to ensure a proper line of sight can be established. This will maximize the value of your investment, and enhance your shooting experience. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.

- #9 Reticle
The #9 reticle delivers the ability to gain quick sight acquisition against heavy cover, dense brush or busy backgrounds. Three long, heavy, non-tapered posts at 3, 6, and 9 o'clock pull your eye directly to the center of your sight picture quickly. Fine cross hairs intersect at the exact center of your line of sight and a fine circle outlines the center for positive and accurate shot placement. A single stadia at 12 o'clock finesses the picture and allows the shooter to clearly see what is directly above the target with ease.
First focal plane positioning of the reticle ensures a consistent point of impact across the entire zoom range.
