Technical Deep Dive

At the heart of the 5-25x56 PM II's superiority is its advanced optical system. The scope’s high magnification range is complemented by an objective lens of 56mm, providing exceptional clarity and detail. The scope's robust construction includes a main tube diameter of 34mm, ensuring stability and alignment under recoil. This model's particular innovation is the integration of the Horus Tremor3 reticle, a first focal plane reticle designed for rapid range calculation and windage adjustments. This reticle's application in specialized fields, like military sniping, demonstrates its precision in real-world scenarios.

Understanding the Horus Tremor3 Reticle

The Horus Tremor3 reticle in the first focal plane is a significant advancement in long-range shooting. Known for its intricate grid system, it allows shooters to make quick holdover adjustments without needing to manipulate turret settings, vital in rapidly changing situations. The reticle's design facilitates instant range estimation and bullet drop compensation, making it a preferred choice for precision shooters.

Quality Assurance

Schmidt & Bender's legacy, since 1957, is evident in the 5-25x56 PM II. This scope represents a blend of traditional craftsmanship and modern optical innovation, assuring users of its reliability and performance in demanding conditions.

RAL8000 Finish

The riflescope boasts a RAL8000 finish that is also known as German Tan.

Understanding S&B Speak

The term "DT27 MTC LT/ST ZC CT" refers to specific features and mechanisms of Schmidt and Bender scopes, particularly the model in question. Here's a breakdown of what each part of this term means:

  • DT27: This stands for "Double Turn 27 MRAD." It indicates that the elevation turret of the scope is capable of two full rotations (double turn), with a total adjustment range of 27 Milliradian (MRAD). This feature allows for significant adjustment in elevation, essential for long-range shooting.
  • MTC: "More Tactile Clicks." This feature implies that the turret provides distinct, tactile feedback at each click adjustment. It helps shooters make precise adjustments by feel, especially useful under conditions where visual confirmation is challenging.
  • LT: "Locking Turret." This suggests that the turret can be locked into place to prevent inadvertent adjustments, a crucial feature for maintaining zero in dynamic environments or during transportation.
  • ST ZC: "Single Turn Zero Click." This likely refers to the windage turret, which might be capable of a single full rotation with a feature that provides an audible or tactile "zero click," indicating a return to the original zero setting.
  • CT: This could stand for "Counter Turret," suggesting the design of the turret is such that it moves in the opposite (counter) direction to standard turrets. This can be a preference for some shooters based on their training or comfort with certain directional movements during adjustments.
