It's really simple, I cannot bring myself to do business with any other firm regarding high end optics, except OpticsPlanet. Wonderful service. Period. Regarding the Steiner M5Xi with a Horus Tremor 3, forget everyone else, nothing like it, nothing compares. The closest, a Schmidt & Bender PMII, and as good as the glass was on the S&B, the build quality was not even in the same Universe with the M5Xi. The warranty alone at Steiner is Generational, it's a Heritage Warranty. So there you have it...for my TRG 42 in 338 Lapua, it's a magical combination.���

I went through extensive research to buy the scope I did buy. All the scopes were in and around the same price range. They all had high quality features but I choose Steiner because of the features and the type of shooting I do. The scope is definitely of military grade, high glass quality and mil precision. More than enough windage left/right. The illumination intensity goes from low to very bright great for dark light shooting. I had to narrow my choice down between three contenders and Steiner won out. I hope this helps you make your own decision.

This scope feels extremely robust. The knobs are very tactile. Everything about this scope is top quality. OpticsPlanet had the best deal on this scope. I am very happy with this scope, can't wait to mount it onto my 338 LM rifle.

Not the scope for the faint hearted given its price tag but it delivers what one would expect from a long range scope. First impression out of the box "my God that's a beast" I bought this for my Ruger precision rifle 6.5mm creedmoor. Tourets have a great feel positive feel and sound with each tic. The optics are very clear and crisp with generous light from the wide 56mm apapature; I'm now waiting on delivery of the sunshade to reduce some of that brightness. I mounted it with a spuhr 34mm with no rise that was a real debate as some recommended some rise in the mount. I'll be shooting for awhile at 200-300yrd (barely stretching her legs) until I move out west to longer ranges at that time I'll likely zero the scope at 300yrds and Im sure I can push the scope easily to the limits of the blastics.
