The Steiner 10x42 R Tactical Binocular is a midsized roof prism unit created by Steiner to address specific needs of law enforcement and surveillance operations. The R Tactical features their innovative SUMR (Steiner Universal Mill Reticle) targeting reticle system and an entirely improved optical formulation to deliver increased brightness and superior resolution. Steiner's combined traditional silver mirror prism technology with selected dielectric coatings to their proprietary "Interference Mirrors", and these optical enhancements offer maximum broad-band light transmission with exceptional clarity and color fidelity.
The 10x42 R Tactical binocular's universal reticle system is based on the standard Mil System, and can be used for effective ground observation, direct/indirect fire coordination, air support, and delivery of PGM (Precision Guided Munitions).
The 10x42 R Tactical borrows some design cues from great sidearms, with a checkered rubber outer finish and recessed thumb pits that make this binocular both comfortable to hold during long viewing sessions and immediately secure in your hand when adrenaline is high. Its non-reflective, hard black rubber exterior protects against shocks and bumps. This is a binocular meant to endure heavy use, and is backed by Steiner's 10-year warranty.
