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.
The right tool for the right job gets the job done right. Hunters and shooters who have their sights set on smaller targets over longer distances will find that the Schmidt & Bender 4-16x50 Classic Riflescope can boost their game considerably. Dialing into 16x Magnification brings distant targets, even small ones, in close enough for proper sight acquisition. Constructed from a 30mm aluminum alloy tube, this scope was built to work hard and last a lifetime. You can count on the fine mechanics designed by Schmidt & Benders engineers to track correctly, and to provide dependable repeatability. Optically, this is a world-class sighting device on par with Europe's finest offerings. Long after the sun heads toward the horizon, and right through twilight, your sight picture will be bright, clear, sharp and rich with contrast and detail. Apparently, it seems that Mr. Woodchuck is going to have a bad day.
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.
