T6Xi 5-30x56 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicest scope I own Steiner knocked this one out of the park! I have it mounted on a Rem 700 in 6.5 Creedmoor in an Aero precision chassis. The combo is outstanding. Since this is about the glass, I’ll focus on that. The tracking and repeatability are spot on. The locking function is intuitive and easy to use. The clarity is amazing and lends to easy target discrimination. They included a three-inch sun shade, flip caps, and throw lever - just add mount of your choice and go. To my eye, the image only starts to dim as I approach 30x, but remains crystal clear. At the pro price offered, this purchase is a no brainer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing scope Amazing scope and finish, the tracking on it is perfect and have taken it out to a mile already. Paired with the correct scope based and rings it’s an absolute unit! Now to the downside, the weight of the scope is on the heavier side compared to other models. Also wish the adjustment would be in smaller units than what’s give same as reticle thickness. This becomes an issue especially on precision shoots at closer distance.. other than that this scope is an amazing option

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope, Great Price Purchased this for use during PRS matches. Glass is exceptional and compares well to my Nightforce Optics. The turrets take a little getting used to but that's only because the locking mechanism is different than what I'm used to. Very tactile and audible turrets and the "Never Lost" feature on the elevation turret is pretty cool. However, the that feature is useless if you intend on using a turret tape during matches. Haven't found turret tapes for the scope so it isn't likely to be an issue. Overall, extremely impressed with this optic and would not hesitate to purchase another one in the future if I need another optic. All in all, I'd stack it up against a Mark 5 or ATACR with the ATACR having a slight advantage. BUT, this is a seriously quality scope and I don't think you can beat the quality at this price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal scope for expert pricing. Only thing is; at low/pitch black visibility my scope seems to have a glare that starts at the bottom left of the scope when I turn on the illumination. This only happens when it’s super dark though and does not happen during dusk/dawn times of days. Other then that it’s great even up to 1500 yards I still get a sharp image much better then my other 50mm-55mm objective lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good glass, great turret The turret system on the Steiner is unmatched in my opinion. Never get lost in your turret. The feel and positive feedback on the clicks is great. I have had two t5xi scopes and the just added quality to quality with the t6 lineup. Really good glass but not the best in the business, it’s up there though. Good reticle. And really good light gathering ability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steiner T6X Turrets track well, glass is clear and has held up to being run on two different rifles. Included scope caps mounted just fine. Reticle does illuminate but is definitely not sunlight bright but that's not really it's purpose. Reticle is a little on the busy side but overall workable. Paired with a Spur 4601 mount
Date published: 2023-11-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crystal Clear Amazing glass that looks better than some of my Nightforce scopes. Turrets are just ok and could be more tactile. The turret numbers changing over after a full rotation is one of the coolest things I’ve seen on a scope. No chance of getting lost.
Date published: 2023-12-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price/Performance ratio Overall great “tactical” scope. Reticles are useful without being cluttered. Glass is great, only a small step down from the big $$$ stuff. You can get a better scope, but you’ll have to nearly double the expenditure.

Is there a difference between the T5 and T6 other than the additional zoom range?

Asked by: bob27_7
The T6 will have upgraded turrets and the latest in glass and coatings technology that we have to offer.
Answered by: Steiner Tech Support
Date published: 2023-01-25

Will the turrets allow for the full 28 mils of adjustment or will it limit it to 23 like the T5XI turrets did?

Asked by: Justincaseholsters
The overall adjustment spec does not equate well to available adjustment for dialing. Adjustment will always be needed to zero the scope. Additionally, any adjustment used in windage will reduce available elevation adjustment, and vice versa. This is true of any scope.

How do I get the battery in? Myself and 3 other dudes have tried. 

Asked by: Nick p
Replacing the Battery The reticle is powered by a 3-volt lithium cell battery #CR2450. To install a new battery, unscrew the battery cap on the illumination switch and install the new battery flat side (+) up. It is advisable to remove the battery for long-term storage (over a month)
