Thick posts at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock with a fine cross hair coming down from 12 o’clock. Subtension of this at 100 yards is just shy of the width of a fired, 12-bore case. Easily visible and hard to lose in any light. A lot smaller than a rabbits head, so more than good enough.
Schmidt & Bender's Classic scopes include the rotation indicator, created to give you a visual reference of the position of the reticle within its adjustment range. The display within the elevation and windage adjustment turrets contains a black dot in a white window that shows where the reticle is positioned. When the scope is mounted, this allows the gunsmith to verify if the black dot is close to the letter 'M', indcating that a sufficient adjustment range in both directions is available for zeroing.
Schmidt & Bender
For almost 50 years, Schmidt & Bender have improved and refined their original riflescopes. The result is a precision instrument so rugged, so dependable, that Schmidt & Bender scopes are used for culling operations in South Africa's Kruger National Park, cited by the park's rangers as the only riflescopes that will endure the merciless pounding of large caliber rifles. Brilliant optics, precision mechanics and a thick, incredibly tubular body are the reason. Even the handsome anodized finish is designed to resist the nicks, scratches and dings that the harshest hunting environments inevitably bring.
It is not uncommon for customers to refer to a Schmidt & Bender scope that is 20, 30 years old or more, that has travelled the world many times, and is still permorning like new. It is this reputation, earned from the mountains to the rain forest, from the bitter cold of Alaska to the blistering deserts of Africa, that bring a smile to the professional hunter when his client uncases a rifle equipped with a Schmidt & Bender riflescope.
Mount rings to fit it onto a rifle ARE NOT included
If you need .22 rimfire 3/8", airgun 11mm, 20mm weaver/picatinny mount rings you will need to purchase them in addition to the scope. See shop and look for high profile models for 30mm tube. Please ask if unsure. We can also help with adapter bases for rifles such as CZ, Tikka, Ruger, Remington, Howa, Weatherby, Sako etc
