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.
Surgically precise shot placement across extremely long distances (2000 yds) can be successfully negotiated with several larger caliber rifles (50 BMG, 338 Lapua, etc). Your ability to accurately range these distances, and successfully place a shot within a few MOA is contingent on your proficiency as a shooter and the capabilities of your gear. While a milling reticle can enhance your abilities somewhat, certain crucial facts need to be addressed if you are going to achieve success in this long range arena. Basically, if you can't see it, you can't hit it. The Schmidt & Bender 5-25x56 Police Marksman II LP Riflescope ensures that you can see, and see clearly, over great distances & under adverse conditions. This scope features very high magnification to enlarge the target in your sight picture to levels you can work with safely & responsibly. You'll find the image in your scope to be extremely clear, thanks to state of the art lens construction and coatings. Your line of sight will be bright, sharp, and full of details not seen when looking through a scope of lesser quality. The 56mm objective lens delivers an astounding level of light transmission, a necessary feature for when the sun starts to head toward the horizon. Repeatability is a major issue for all precision shooters. The rugged 34mm main tube adds a notable level of rugged dependability and stability to the equation. A better hold into your rings is possible due to the added surface area, thereby protecting your zero from recoil and field abuse. Shot to shot repeatable accuracy makes all the difference when the stakes and stress levels are high, and you're in unfamiliar surroundings. You need every advantage to be on your side. It is time to stack the deck in your favor with the 5-25x56 Police Marksman II.
This scope features a color coded elevation knob that delivers a total of 56 minutes of adjustment. The color on the knob changes when you adjust past the initial 28 minutes of adjustment, which gives you a fast read when you're adjusting your knobs under stressful conditions.
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.
Color Coded Elevation Knob
Illuminated P4 Reticle
At the very center of the reticle there are fine cross hairs, indicating your point of impact. These cross hairs can be illuminated when lighting conditions necessitate doing so. There are 11 brightness levels for you to choose from to help you balance the illumination against the prevailing lighting conditions.
First focal plane positioning of the reticle ensures consistent shot placement and accurate ranging calculations across the entire zoom range.
