The New Steiner T5Xi Riflescopes

I just got this official info from Steiner (this is what was e-mailed to me). 
No, I do not have firm pricing yet.
No, we are not accepting pre-orders as there are not even product #'s from Steiner yet.
Yes, we will get a delivery from Steiners first shipment once they do become available.

Steiner is pleased to announce the preliminary release on a new Tactical scope. The new T5Xi riflescope is scheduled to ship in September 2014. 

The T5Xi is designed, machined, and assembled here in the US using the same glass as the M5Xi.

We recently showed these scopes at the InterMedia Roundtable and featured them at The Sniper’s Hide Cup competition this past weekend. 

Prices are not set at this time but we are getting close to locking those down. When that has been finalized we will provide you with additional information.
