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.

  1. Not meaning to be a prick, but the correct nomenclature is: a hyphen between the numbers of the magnification range and an “x” between the magnification and the objective size.


    — 10×40
    — 3-9×40
    — 3-37×56

  2. And almost no-one makes a decent fixed power scope. I’ve been looking for a decent quality fixed 4×32 or 4×40 for a 8mm Mauser. Bigger magnification or variable over 4x will result in being in a different class for the competition.

  3. The site has been great as I can put samples of my
    work within my ads, therefore showing that I run a legitimate and quality
    business. Unique ad content – This is the most important step.
    The bottom line is that marketers will now pay for real,
    measurable results.
