List of products by brand Schmidt & Bender
Schmidt & Bender is a synonym for quality and precision, for tradition and innovation. As early as 1957 the family business engaged in the development, production and optimization of riflescopes that always meet the ever increasing requirements in this segment.
Since that time a great amount of passion, ingenuity and a strong awareness for quality, together with a close and successful cooperation with the shooters have always contributed towards accomplishing that goal. Thus Schmidt & Bender has become one of the leading suppliers of precision scopes in the world.
Schmidt & Bender. Founder & Forerunner. Hunting & Fascination. Quality & Precision. Tradition & Innovation. Synonyms for a company supplying high-quality hunting scopes on a global scale.
Something which today may sound rather natural must be attributed in the first place to the hard work and zeal of the two founders who launched their "Project Passion" in 1957. In that enterprise the initial rather poor means in terms of the available materials did not impede precision mechanic Helmut Schmidt and master precision engineer Helmut Bender in any way. Quite the opposite: employing a considerable portion of heart and soul as well as a lot of ingenuity and the utmost skills of their craft they laid the foundation for the path they pursued to become the world's top scope suppliers – among which the company ranks today.
50 years later Schmidt & Bender still is a family business that will soon continue to pursue the values and traditions of the two founders in the third generation.
Since each hunter, each hunt and each climate has its own specific requirements, Schmidt & Bender offers a wide variety of different scopes in two product lines: the Klassik series, perfected through model updates and continuing development over many years, epitomizing the traditional style in form and function. And the future oriented Zenith series, expressing without doubt progress and aesthetic awareness.
Here are the strong points of these two series in further detail: basic solidity and resistance of the main tube. Abrasion-resistant, precious looking anodized surface finish. Reliable function of all mechanical parts. Optics, designed and manufactured to the latest requirements, as well as multiple coating finishes, developed in accordance with the latest findings with respect to thin film technology. The user may select between scopes with constant and variable magnification, different main tubes, with or without rails and with a great number of reticles.
A propos, the latest progress in Schmidt & Bender illuminated reticle technology and the new Convex internal rail are additional proof of our development team's creativity and the close contact with the users of our products.
Whether in the heat-simmering savannah of Africa, in the cold deserts of Alaska or the raw landscapes of the European North: with their proverbial solidity and reliability the scopes of these two series will always be your ideal partner for a fascinating hunting experience.
Why we have equipped the Schmidt & Bender reticle illumination with an automatic switch-off function is rather easy to explain. Many of our employees are passionate hunters themselves, collecting their own experiences and those of hunter friends and clients all over the world. Systematic developing activities, extensive practical testing and regular talks with rifle producers, gunsmiths and shooters also help in finding the right solutions. Innovative and in the most practical applications.
These processes are particularly safe since they are all conducted following the strictest regulations of the DIN ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System, from design via manufacturing up to after-sales services. Thus our employees at Schmidt & Bender always meet a requirement they have asked themselves to comply with, i.e. to not only meet the requirements of the customers, but to exceed them.

This rugged and compact 8x zoom 1-8x24 Exos riflescope equips you perfectly for stalking or driven hunts/fast moving game. Whether in familiar hunting grounds or when hunting abroad: our patented CC-Mode on 1x magnification provides you with a brilliant optical performance and guarantees quick acquisition – just like a red dot sight. On the other hand the 8x zoom enables shots at distant targets which defines it as a very versatile riflescope.
Schmidt & Bender 2.5-10x50 Polar T96
The 2.5-10x50 Polar T96 is perfect when hunting from a stand or ground blind. Due to its very compact design it is also suitable for fast moving game.

The lean 50 mm objective allows the riflescope to be mounted lower and yet still allows a better light transmission performance than other larger 56 mm objective due to its patented optical design.
Schmidt & Bender 2.5-10x56 Klassik
The 2.5-10x56 Klassik riflescope is your ideal choice, when hide hunting for wild boars at night and for every hunting situation inhibited by poor light conditions.

Many hunters are surprised by the image brightness and contrast this riflescope generates, even in comparison to high-quality binoculars.
Schmidt & Bender 2.5-10x56 Zenith
The 2.5-10x56 Zenith is perfect when hunting from a stand or ground blind. Due to its magnification range it is also suitable for fast moving game. In fact it is Schmidt & Benders most popular hunting riflescope with patented FlashDot illuminated reticle in First Focal Plane. One of the reasons for its popularity is the signature tube design with flowing lines which won the iF DESIGN AWARD. Apart from this, it has been proven to be perfect for objective or ocular mounted night vision devices.
Schmidt & Bender 3-12x50 Klassik
With its magnification of up to 12x zoom the 3-12x50 Klassik is suited ideally for close ranges as well as for hunting at longer distances.

Schmidt & Bender 3-12x50 Zenith
The 3-12x50 Zenith is the ideal riflescope for hide hunting and for shooting at medium distances. It also is available with our patented FlashDot P3 reticle (FD P3) in First Focal Plane which serves the more ambitious and modern hunter due to its MilDot design. Apart from this, it has been proven to be perfect for objective or ocular mounted night vision devices.
Schmidt & Bender 3-12x54 Polar T96
With its light transmission of more than 96 %, the 3-12x54 Polar T96 is the ideal riflescope for hide hunting and for shooting at medium distances in low light conditions. The lean 54 mm objective allows the riflescope to be mounted rather low and yet still allows a better light transmission performance than other larger 56 mm objectives due to its patented optical design. Furthermore, the optional parallax adjustment/side focus is ideal for attached night vision or thermal objective devices. If you are using such devices be sure to adjust your parallax adjustment/side focus in order to achieve the best possible image quality with this combination.
Schmidt & Bender 4-16x50 Klassik
Having a brilliant image quality even on 16x magnification and combined with the comfortable parallax adjustment/ side focus the 4-16x50 Klassik is perfect for hunting sensitive and distant game. This application is supported by a fine and unique 0.5 cm click value BDC turret adjustment which gives this riflescope an extra portion of precision. Over the decades, our well experienced engineers have steadily improved and optimized this riflescope which also can be used for target shooting.
Schmidt & Bender 4-16x56 Polar T96
The 4-16x56 Polar T96 riflescope is perfect for long-distance hunting and target shooting in low light conditions. The precise parallax adjustment/side focus enables to estimate distance while the patented optical design is extremely important to hunters and shooters who need to exactly identify their target without exhaustion. A clean D7 hunting reticle in Second Focal Plane or our most popular tactical reticle P4FL in First Focal Plane makes this riflescope very versatile and suitable for different applications.
Schmidt & Bender 6-36x56 PM II
The new S&B 6-36x56 PM II offers the best solution for medium to extreme long-range shooting. Like all of our PM II riflescopes, we designed and manufactured this 6x zoom riflescope according to MIL-STD- 810G for handling the harshest environments. Outstanding image quality with a wide field-of-view (FOV) provides superior detail recognition. Reduced weight and size makes it very compact while the new LPI illumination also enables left handed use. The efficient 6-36x magnification range is combined with a 39.5 MRAD elevation turret which supports more precise shot placements.
Schmidt & Bender 8x56 Klassik
The 8x56 Klassik is THE specialist for the hide hunt at a baiting place or for spotlighting. The fixed power riflescope parameters guarantee a great optical performance for hunters who are hunting or shooting on 8x magnification anyway. It is therefore ideal for the traditional hunter who seeks a no-nonsense riflescope made purely for one purpose: hunting.
