Steiner 8790 overview

  • 1Description

When the terrain changes as fast as the engagement range there's no time for guesswork or hesitation, and Steiner Optics makes fluid transition from CQB to ranged use easy with the 6x40 ICS Innovative Combat Sight. This multi-ranged use sight is a 6x40 riflescope for long-range use and features a built-in IR laser rangefinder and inclinometer that measures the range and angle to the target and, using the user-defined ammunition ballistic characteristics being employed, calculates the ballistic drop. The red-dot aiming point is automatically adjusted according to the calculated BDC to put you on-target quickly - ranging to a target at 550yd takes about one second, while a target at 765yd takes about two seconds. A remote pressure pad switch is included for fast and safe system activation without sacrificing your combat grip.

To facilitate rapid transition from long-range to short, iron sights are integrated on the right side of the housing and set at a 45° angle. A simple rotation on the grip is all that is needed to change from the primary optic to the familiar iron sights. A short rail on the top of the sight allows for accessories or transitional optics such as holographic or dot sights to be mounted without interring with the magnified optic. The ICS features 0.5 MOA per click impact point correction and a ±60 MOA windage and elevation adjustment range.

Complementing the versatile usability of the sight is a lightweight aluminum alloy housing with a corrosion and scratch-resistant matte-black anodized finish. The housing is nitrogen filled for fogproof performance with wide temperature changes, and O-ring sealed to make it submersible to as much as 32'. A broad -40 to 149°F operating temperature enables the sight to work in extreme weather and conditions. The ICS comes with a Picatinny/Weaver quick-release rail mount and it runs on a single CR123A battery.

    6x40 ICS Innovative Combat Sight (Red Dot Reticle) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a civilian available Mil-Spec Scope with Laser BDC This is getting mounted to a FN SCAR 17S.My first impression is funny... a $ scope that comes in a $ cent carboard box. Nit picky but I expected it to come in something a little more worthy like a plastic case. Most pistols which cost less than this thing come in plastic cases. Stupid complaint but that's what my initial thought was upon getting it. Steiner has always produced very nice, tough, functional products and this is no exception. It feels like it's built like a tank, or should I say submarine as its capable of being submerged 30'. The size is perfect. It's actually really small for the capability that it has. It's sister company Burris, makes the Eliminator BCD scope and it's huge in comparison. But a hint to the quality of this thing is that even though it's way smaller than the Eliminator it only weighs about an 1oz less. It appears to be built with very typical German quality. Everything seems very well thought out and functional for normal use (not so for setting up). The Quick attach rail system on the bottom reminds me of Heckler & Koch's claw mounts from their earlier rifles. Very precision. The eye relief isn't adjustable and has to be set by the physical location of the scope on the rifle, but it's no big deal. The optics are typical Steiner, bright and clear. The functioning of the laser and BCD system is pretty basic, however, programming the ammo you're using into the scope is not. Unlike the Burris Eliminator which can be programmed for just about any round, the ICS has preprogrammed Ammo codes for 5.56, 7.62, .300 WM, & .300 Black Out. There's no option to enter your own ballistic info, and to change which round you're using is a little strange. There's two button at the back, left, near the eye piece. In normal operation those just adjust the brightness of the info being displayed inside the scope. If you hold those two buttons together for 3 seconds it lets you change between meters and yards and gives you the option to turn on or off the actual distance display. If you turn it off it still illuminates the mil-dot you're to use for the given range but wont display the actual range. To turn the scope on for use, you can either plug the pressure pad in and mount it to the rifle and every time you squeeze it, it activates the laser. OR, there's a small button on the bottom left side of the scope near the objective end, and this little button is the reason changing the ammo being used is strange. This little button is actually a screw on cap with a small rubber button built onto it. To change the ammo, you unscrew the button and screw on another cap that comes with the scope and this other cap puts the scope into a programming mode where you scroll through ammo codes using the two rubber buttons near the eyepiece. Once you have the code you want to use selected you have to quickly unscrew that cap and screw the button back on and press and hold it for 3 seconds. Sounds easy... but the caps are fine threaded and not so easy to get screwed on when you're trying to do it under 30 seconds. Why 30 seconds? Because that's all the amount of time it gives you to accomplish this task before it reverts back. It took me 3 tries to get the ammo selected. I think this process is odd and worrisome. What happens if you loose the little programming cap? There is no button to turn the scope off, it just times itself out after a few minutes and turns itself off. The one thing I wish it would have come with is some sort of cover or lens caps. As it's an oddball shape there's no covers or caps that will fit over the end of it. As far as functioning of the Laser and BCD goes, it functions great. Very quick to range and reads out the distance in a amber digital display at the top of scope, and lights up one of the Mil-Dots on the elevation leg of the cross hair. It also has adjustable iron sites which is nice to have as a backup.And it has a small picatinny (sp) rail on top for mounting a reflex site or small dot site. I'm mounting a RMR on mine. Overall it's a wicked cool package and looks totally natural on a military style rifle.
