Product Features: 

One-Piece Oversized 34mm Tube

increases strength and reliability and provides greater elevation and windage adjustments for longer ranges.


Special Competition Reticle (SCR™)

designed by Steiner for precision competition use. Located on the first focal plane, it offers an extended illumination area, 2/10-mil windage and 1/2-mil holdover lines. 1/10-mil ranging brackets allow for precise distance ranging.


Tapered, All Metal Magnification Ring

is angled so the shooter can see his magnification setting while positioned directly behind the scope.


Large, Easy-to-Grip Windage/Elevation/Parallax/Illumination Knobs

for positive, non-slip adjustment of the diopter, reticle and parallax settings.


Low Profile Turrets

parallax adjustment and illumination controls are less likely to hang up or snag during movement.


Second Rotation Indicator

Locking Dioptor

that prevents accidental rotation of the diopter.



durable construction that canstand up to any cold or wet condition, waterproof to depths of 33 feet and impact tested on all optical and electronic components.


Consistent Eye Relief

T5Xi 5-25X56 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 433.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME OPTIC This is my second T5Xi 5-25x56, purchased the first one and just love the sharpness of image, it is outstanding and super clear. I have been using Nightforce, Leupold, Zeiss and recently played with my friend's T5Xi and just loving it, so place the order for the first one to go on my Savage 10TR bolt action and could not stop myself to buy another one to put it on my long range shooting AR. The target turrets are very low profile and user friendly, the reticle is some fine and easy to read. Overall, i am very please with the quality of the scope, will definitely spend some time on the range and see how well this scope can do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing optics I drove 9 hours just to take a peek. I had been in the market for some time for a scope that I can shoot ELR and also hunt in the harsh deserts and mountains of New Mexico. I had been in the market for a scope that I can use for both purposes. I am not made of money and wanted a one and done scope that I can use for many years to come. The optics and reticle were far superior to my fathers night force and razor HD. The price point was also better than I expected. All of the reviews I had read were right. Steiner is an amazing company with a warranty as good as the other companies well above what I paid. American made and top notch service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Value, Excellent Rifke Scope I have been waiting for the release of the T5Xi for quite sometime. Having had the opportunity to use the M series scopes on friends rifles previously let me know that this new version would be worth the wait. I am replacing my Bushnell HDMR G2 on my long range precision rifle. The Bushnell has served me well, but the T5Xi offers additional features at a price point only slightly higher. It also offers superior optical quality only matched by the other "German" players at a fraction of the cost. The ease of use of the zero stop system is awesome. The tactile clicks of the turrets, illumination, and solid construction is found on scopes costing several thousands of dollars more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesom long range scope I was one of the first in the USA to obtain this great scope. I mounted it in seekins rings on my brand new RBros custom built 338 lapua magnum rifle. This scope has all the features offered by much higher S&B scopes at a substantially reduced price. I think there is no better scope for ELR shooting/hunting for my application out there. The clarity of the glass and repeatability of the turrets has proven to be spot on, exactly what I expected from Steiner. The new SCR reticle suits my applications perfectly. I am very satisfied with this purchase and recommend it to others without question. Believe me, you will not be disappointed in this high end optic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed right out of the box I bought this product primarily to begin long-range precision shooting. My prior experience is in shorter ranges 1-300 yds. I have a few zeiss scopes, but nothing with this amount of magnification. Image quality is extremely crisp and sharp throughout the magnification range. Light gathering is incredible (as would be expected from a Steiner product). Build quality and finish are very good, and indicative of typical german engineering. I cannot wait to put some rounds downrange, and begin testing the limits of my shooting ability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unbeatable value at this price point. This is my 4th Steiner optic. Turrets, scr ret, resistance of parallax knob and magnification ring are all 100% spot on. One thing about this scope is the diopter adjustments are very sensitive and can take some time to fine tune the adjustments. If you take the time to fine tune I'm confident you will eliminate any CA you may be seeing. Other possible downside is the parallax markings are off by a significant amount on my scope. Not a deal breaker for me as I've used scopes before that don't have markings at all. Overall I think I will really enjoy this optic and if all goes well in my further testing of it I will be buying another one for my 300wm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost everything you want with amazing price In short, I really love this scope. Rugged build, fairly light, using German glass, designed and assembled in US. Turrets are amazing, clicks are positive and audible. Image is sharp, with generous eye relief and no tunneling at low power set. The new reticle SCR is a great design from Steiner, so easy to use and will not interfere the view at lower mag power set. Only thing I find that gave me a little trouble is the bottom of the scope turret is not leveled with reticle, so when I use the Spuhr mount I can't level the scope with the wedge provided. Other than that everything works perfect for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the turrets. Purchased this scope(5-25x56) through an online retailer. Was a little frustrated when I got the scope and the reticle was severely canted. Sent it back to Steiner and they shipped me out a new one, no questions asked within a week. Finally got the new scope mounted on my rifle and performed two separate tracking tests and I am very happy with how everything is performing. Absolutely love the turrets, and the quality of glass. Steiner seem to have had some quality control issues on the initial run of optics, but it seems they have ironed out the kinks and I would not hesitate to buy another Steiner. Would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for the issue with my first scope.

T5xi 5-25x56 coming soon so what is the recommended mounting rings and top rail for a Savage T10 in .308.   -how tall on the rings and what material should they be alum or steel? -as for the top rail, again alum or steel and what MOA should it be?

Asked by: Evodave
The bell of the scope is 2.5" across. subtract 1.25 by height of the base then add clearance at the bell about 1/8" for zero MOA or 1/4" for 20MOA. increase in MOA is obtained by angling the scope downward toward the muzzle (I believe it is 1/3 of a degree for 20 MOA).so if the base is .5" rings should be roughly 1.15" for 0MOA or 1.25" for 20MOA base. Recommend steel base and aluminum rings Nightforce or Vortex make good rings.

Can the SCR Reticle in the T5Xi 5-25X56 be seen with the battery off or when the battery dies?  If so is there a visual we might see?

Asked by: Justin D
The reticle is visible when there is no power applied either when the illumination dial is in the off position or the battery no longer provides power. The reticle remains the same except the portion in the picture that is red is black just like the rest of the reticle.

Hello, Is this a first focal plane scope? I'm sorry if I missed it, but I didn't see it mentioned anywhere on the site.

Asked by: ZachS13

What is the correct elevation travel for the T5Xi 5-25x56? The specs on the web page say 26mil, while the specs in the manual say 23mil. Thanks!

Asked by: OneShotJim
The total adjustment travel available is a little over 26 mRad, however this will likely change depending upon how you have the scope mounted and the amount of adjustment used after zeroing the scope in.
