Steiner Announces New Nighthunter Xtreme Illuminated Riflescope Series
We got notified this weekend that these are new for 2014 and in stock @ Steiner. We have not physically seen these yet and most likely will not until SHOT Show in January which makes it that we have no formed opinion on them. This post is strictly informative as an announcement of new product.
The night scope
Especially good for hunting from stands during twilight and into the night. Thanks to its optimal light yield, the rifle scope can acquire the target even under the most difficult conditions. Extremely finely dimmable illuminated red dot that automatically turns on in the position last stored when in the firing position.
• Outstanding light transmission:
• The newly developed Diamond-Night-Coating achieves an overwhelming result of 94% light transmission
• This optic allows you to see beyond the borders of light and enlarges your hunting possibilities
The 5-Power Zoom factor always offers the right magnification and a generous field of view. The magnification is readable from the firing position.
By developing this completely new type of Diamond-Night-Coating technology, STEINER has developed optics that are fully attuned to hunting and which set new standards. The use and combination of rare fluorides and mineral substances ensure unrivalled light transmission across the entire light spectrum. The images are razor-sharp with the highest level of contrast — right to the edge. Contours are always clearly and distinctly visible and diffused light is reduced to a minimum. These factors guarantee the best possible conditions for observation even in the worst light conditions.
Optimally suited for regular, professional use. A highly specialised coating provides first-class light transmission. The images are pin sharp and of the highest contrast — right to the edge. Diffused light is reduced to a minimum. Contours are always sharp and distinctly visible, even in poor light or at the onset of dusk.
STEINER Smart Illumination
The reticle’s illuminated red dot on the 2nd focal plane is distinguished by extreme brightness and remains clearly distinct even in very bright surroundings. For the onset of dusk and during the night the illumination can be finely dimmed. An innovative motion sensor deactivates the illumination as soon as the rifle is set aside. As soon as it is again placed in the firing position, the illuminated red dot is once again activated in the last setting, thanks to the memory function. The auto-off after 3 hours of inactivity ensures a long battery life.
•Easy to use on/ off switch
•Stepless control of brightness (with dimmer)
•Auto off when putting the gun sidewise or upright
•As soon as you take the gun back the last made adjustment switches on automatically
•Auto off after 3 hous of non use
•Perfect dot with most modern technology
•For the 1-5x24: very bright dot adjustment possible for brightest day light and / or snowy conditions
The hydrophobic coating gives the lenses a dirt- and water-repellent surface, thereby protecting against external effects and making cleaning easier. Rain, snow and moisture disappear from the field of view.
As in the highly regarded STEINER binoculars, special attention is given to intuitive operation in the Nighthunter Xtreme rifle scopes. Especially good grip characteristics guarantee secure handling even with gloves. All settings are also easily readable from the firing position.
The Nighthunter Xtreme concept is optimised for silent operation. Rubber armouring on the protruding operating elements ensure effective sound absorption.
Prevents possible sighting errors at long distances caused by astigmatic aberrations. Setting the distance to the target corrects for parallax errors and optimizes sharpness.
The Nighthunter Xtreme rifle scopes come complete with well designed accessories. The spare battery for the reticle illumination is located in the lid compartment. The tough neoprene case offers protection for the scope optics, can be removed quickly and quietly and can be used as a base on which to rest the rifle.
