  • Varmint Scopes

    For long-range shooting of small targets, our 4–16 x 50 Varmint scope is the perfect choice. Exceptional light transmission and a wide magnification range also allow it to perform double duty as an all-around hunting scope. Special reticles, including one with rangefinding capablities, allow you to place a precise shot to 800 yards.

    Created specifically for small targets at long ranges. Brilliant optics, high magnification and convenient parallax adjustment make it deadly on small game anywhere in the world. Proven in the field to 800 yards. Also an excellent performer in target shooting competitions. Order the No. 6 Varmint or No. 8 Dot Varmint reticles designed specifically for small targets

  • Scope Of The Month

    Sometimes, you should go into a hunt with both eyes open. At its lowest magnification, our newest Zenith model allows you to do just that. Designed for large, dangerous or running game, its FlashDot technology lets you choose from 11 different illuminated dot settings, for the lowest light to the brightest sun.Steps 1 through 6 are for low light conditions, providing a precise aim point against the dark body of an animal at times when non-illuminated crosshairs may be impossible to distinguish. Steps 7 through 11 provide full illumination to the red dot at the center of the reticle, for use in bright sunlight or snow.  This functions much like the front bead on a shotgun, allowing quick, accurate shots at moving game. Turn the illumination off, and the reticle functions normally.

    Being a Schmidt & Bender, it’s one of the few scopes that will hold up to the pounding of the largest calibers and double rifles. Any light, any game, any time, it puts you in control of the situation. Not something that would have you for lunch.

  • Reticles Flash Dot

    Our FlashDot technology lets you activate a bright red dot, precisely at the center of the reticle, when conditions dictate; or turn off the dot completely when conditions change.

    In the field, the FlashDot acts much like the front bead on a shotgun, bringing your eye immediately to the target. This is invaluable for quick reaction shots on running game or even charging dangerous game. It is well suited to bright and harsh lighting conditions, with the bright red dot providing a precise, easily seen aim point against the dark body of a moving animal. When the dot is switched off, the regular fine crosshairs remain in view.

    While the FlashDot was first conceived for daylight use, our beam splitter now allows a single scope to function as a non-illuminated riflescope under normal conditions; as a FlashDot scope in bright light; and as a fully adjustable illuminated reticle at twilight. This feature, included in some of our Zenith models, results in a single scope that is applicable to any lighting situation the hunter will ever encounter.

    A digital chip automatically switches off the power after six hours of non-use. Just in case, an extra battery can be stored under the cover of the windage adjustment turret.

  • Fixed Power

    Rugged, simple and practical, Schmidt & Bender fixed power scopes allow you to hunt with the world’s finest optics at a reasonable price.

    An extremely versatile riflescope, adaptable to a wide range of hunting situations. It is slender and mounts low on your rifle, with excellent light transmission for a medium-power scope. Ideal for all but the very longest shots. Specifications

    As its large 56 mm objective lens would suggest, the high twilight factor of the 8 x 56 makes it particularly well suited for the poorest light, and even nighttime hunting from a high seat or blind. Specifications

    The ideal scope for open country and long shots on big game and varmints. Also well suited for target shooting, as its high magnification allows identification of shots on target without the necessity of a spotting scope. A good choice for flat-shooting rifles in small and medium calibers

  • Illuminated Reticles

    In the past, a reticle with thick lateral bars was necessary to position the aim point on the dark body of a game animal in poor light.

    Today, our luminous red dot or finely illuminated crosshairs perform this task much more efficiently…providing you with a precise aim point in near total darkness.

    With any illuminated reticle, it is essential that its brightness can be easily adjusted. A reticle that is too bright will cause glare in the hunter’s eye, interfering with his ability to see the contours of the game. This is because the pupil of the human eye closes quickly upon receiving any source of light.

    Schmidt & Bender illuminated reticles provide 11 fully adjustable brightness settings, allowing you to adjust the reticle precisely to the ambient light. The power supply is switched off between the 11 click stops on the adjustment turret, allowing you to accurately preset the appropriate brightness, then turn it off with a slight turn of the dial. Not only does this conserve your battery, but it allows you to instantly restore your chosen setting while avoiding the risk of glare that can occur when brightness is turned up from the zero position. When a shot presents itself, the slightest turn from this standby position to the next click immediately illuminates the reticle to the appropriate intensity.

    In continuous use, the small, readily available battery will last over 100 hours.
