Seeing a row full of Schmidt & Bender PM II scopes lined up with typical German military precision almost brought a tear to my eye. Be still my beating heart. Sigh. Well, its been a busy year for S&B: nine new scope offerings are being shown at SHOT this year. Included in this release are two new long range “compact” scopes from the PM II series of scopes: the 3-20 x 50 PM II Ultra Short and the 5-20 x 50 PM II Ultra Short. The smaller of the two, the 5-20, is just under 30cm long (11.7 inches) and weighs only 870 grams (30 ounces) . . .
The 3-20 x 50 PM II Ultra Short is a bit longer and heavier, but is truly an engineering marvel with just under 7x of power range:
Other new scopes include 3 Gun scopes including an updated versions of the 1- 8 x 24, and slightly more affordable 1.1-8 x 24’s and 1.5 x 8 x 26.
A 3-37 x 56 PM II high Power digital scope which provides digital readouts for aimpoint correction and communication capability with ballistic computers, is also available.
Pricing is . . .oh, hell, does it really matter? Take your best guess and multiply by 2x.
