M7Xi 4-28x56 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope Got the m7 in December and especially for the price (2705€), best tactical scope you can get period. The versatility of the 4-28 is outstanding, image quality great through out and buildquality is amazing. Parallax is a tad on the stiffer side compared to my m5 5-25, but mechanically everything feels slightly more solid than it. And that says alot if you are familiar with the m5. Optically the m7 is slightly better than the m5, especially on how close the image gets sharp. With my m7 thr image is very clear and sharp starting around 5 meters, while the m5 gets sharp from about 10-15 meters. Doing a lot of rimfire work it is nice, since sometimes shots do present them selves in very close situations. The msr2 reticle is the best there is. If you preffer dialing, get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from M7Xi 4-28 x 56 MSR2 review I was lucky enough to have this scope supplied to me by GMK in the UK, who are the Steiner Military importers.I am using it for 600 & 1000yd matches paired with my Fortmeier .50Cal in the upcoming .50Cal World Championships this year in Raton, USA. I also use it regularly out to 2 miles, where it performs with absolute clarity. This IS a Tier 1 level scope. The tracking is both repeatable and precise. I regularly use IOR and Vortex Tier One scopes for the same disciplines - and the Steiner is right there on colour separation, ultra low aberration, eye relief at high magnification. Turret dialling is crisp with good audible feedback and haptics, combined with the physical elevation rotation indicator. As for the MSR2 reticle, I generally use a windage holdover during matches, and it allows the shooter this benefit with ease.My good friend Jarno Lankila of FinnAccuracy designed the reicle, and although the features are more operator orientated, the centre dot and ability to bracket the target using magnification are first class. Overall usage of this scope has made it a permanent feature for my competion rifles, only to be replaced with the M7Xi IFS later this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical target shooting application I got the M7Xi at the start of 2020. It’s built to the usual Steiner M series quality where the glass is very clear at all ranges/magnification and the elevation/windage clicks are crisp. I shoot matches multiple distances are engaged in a single stage. The M7Xi has been dialing in and out over the last 3 months without error. I enjoy being able to rely on a match to match zero without having to adjust the turrets. Really good quality and the 28 power magnification is great for targets beyond 1,500 yards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coyote Steiner Steiner has done it again! Squeezing three scopes into one and defying the laws of physics and geometry! The M7Xi delivers the optical clarity in a shorter, lighter, more compact package. Think M5Xi 3-15 on the low end... think NF 7-35 on the high end (only better) and the versatility of the M5Xi 5-25. All this for a bargain price considering what you are getting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from M7Xi is the best scope in the world! The Steiner M7xi is the best scope in the world! I own other Steiner’s and they are all perfect. (Check my other reviews) Lots of horsepower under this hood. If you like my 22 LR setup ...it’s an Anschutz 1903 MSR (Dave Eisenried @ Anschutz North America can help you get one of these limited run guns) 10 shots same hole @50 (RWS Ammo importer @ Anschutz) Harris BMRS notched leg bipod with #6 Harris UIT bipod rail adaptor. Steiner Medium rings on a DIP Anschutz 25 MOA rail. Topped off with Steiner M7xi 4-28, Tremor 3. (Doug @ CameralandNY is a family run business and authorized Steiner dealer and he will get you a good deal.) This scope exceeds my expectations and I did not think it was possible. What else is there to say? Steiner lives up to its legendary name!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good high end scoope I bought this scoope five months ago. I use to own a Kahles k624i scoope. But this Steiner m7xi just are a little better att all points. The glass is a bit sharper, not much but att long range I can see bullet holes with the Steiner, that none other scoope can. The turrets and quality of the whole package is excellent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Another electronic mess Like every Steiner product I have purchased (which is about 4 or 5 now), the electronics don’t work. Not sure what the over/under is now on my returns but I think the average is crawling up to 3 returns for every product I have ever purchased from Steiner is that has a battery in them. Glass is great, but again (and will be sending this one back for the third time), the electronics just don’t work. Ever.

I have a question regarding the Steiner M7Xi 4-28x56. I understand steiner offers a lifetime warranty. If one of these optics needs to be returned to Steiner for service or repair, would the optic go back to Germany for repair or would it stay in the USA?

Asked by: Mattv931
The M7 scopes typically go back to Germany for repairs.
