  • Legendary PMII 5-25x Performance
  • DT Dual Turn Elevation Turret with subzero clicks and revolution indicator
  • ST Single Turn Windage Turret

When it comes to light transmission, the 5-25x56 PM II boasts an outstanding light transmission rate of up to 90%. Your pursuit of that perfect shot won't be hindered by the dying embers of the day or the earliest whisper of dawn. This is further enhanced by an illuminated reticle that stays lit under the dimmest of conditions, giving you the upper hand in any shooting environment. The GR2ID reticle features a mil-based grid above and below the center line. This gives more reference points for spotting as well as reference points to hold under for extremely close or high angle shots.  This is a unique and pleasing reticle.

The secret behind the scope's precise targeting is tucked away in its tactile turrets. The trusted DT (Dual Turn) elevation turret and ST (Single Turn) windage turret make minute adjustments a breeze, ensuring your aim remains true. These turrets do more than just rotate—they give you the power to align every shot perfectly with audible clicks. It can be difficult to work through the noise of all the different Schmidt & Bender models.  This one has the high turrets.  While it is more of an older design, the look and feel are comfortable and the price is a little less than some of the newer turrets, and you get the same great glass and performance.

Talking about long-distance shooting, this scope offers an impressive parallax adjustment range from 10m to infinity. It's a game-changer for PRS and ELR shooters, dramatically reducing potential aiming errors. Coupled with a generous eye relief of 3.54", the S&B 5-25x is designed for your comfort, reducing eye strain even during extended shooting sessions.

On the aesthetic front, this PM II sports an understated matte black finish—anodized to add an extra layer of durability. It's a testament to the detailed craftsmanship synonymous with the S&B brand.

With its birthplace being Schmidt & Bender, a stalwart in the optics industry since 1957, there's an unspoken guarantee of quality and precision associated with this riflescope. And the 5-25x56 PM II more than lives up to this reputation. Its features are a nod to the past and a wink to the future, reflecting the perfect blend of tradition and innovation.
