Steiner M-Series Laser Range Finder: 6 000 meters

At EnforceTac and IWA in Germany, we had a look at the new Steiner 6000 meter laser with Bluetooth.

We know you’re going to ask, so expect around 7000 USD/EUR for the LRF, but this is to be confirmed.

It comes with 8x magnifications and weighs about 1 300 gram (46 oz).

The M830r LRF 1535nm ranges farther for targeting accuracy, unknown to your opponent. It calculates target distance from 25 meters to beyond 6,000 meters, using a wavelength invisible to your adversary’s night vision devices. Opponents won’t know they’re being targeted, your position stays hidden, and challenging targets can be zeroed in. With Steiner’s high-precision optics and longer-range accuracy, the edge is yours.


From the Steiner Specification:

Sports-Auto Focus™ System

lets you focus each eyepiece to your vision once, then keeps images razor sharp from 20 yards to infinity. No more chasing focus on moving objects.

Floating Prism System

uses flexible silicon lens mount to absorb severe shock, impact and abuse without damage

Ergonomic Design

shifts the center of gravity into the palms for comfortable, long-time observation and round-the-shoulder shape won’t hang up on hatches and doors in urgent situations.

N2 Injection™ system

seals 14-psi pressurized dry nitrogen into the optic, for fogproof clarity in any condition – from artic cold to desert heat.

NBR Rubber Armoring

is durable, slip-proof and noiseless to ensure secure, chassis-protecting grip in all conditions.

Makrolon housing

is durable polycarbonate with NBR Long Life rubber armoring, creating a lightweight, rugged chassis that withstands 11 Gs of impact. Impervious to harsh conditions for generations of trusted use.



Perfect for mobile troops who travel light. Lenses and prisms are combined with state-of-the-art coatings to provide bright, crisp images at any range. Ranges can be set to meters or yards.

I’m pretty happy with my Leica Geovid LRF, but this Steiner remains an object of desire.

    Why only 8x for a 6000m range finder?

    • Brandon Davis

      The same reason all of the other highend mil LRFs are 5x or 10x (ie see Vectronix). It’s a wide FOV observation system, not a narrow focus spotting system.

    I wonder if the wavelength of the laser would show up on NVG or laser designator spot imager?

    • SGT Fish

      It says specifically that you can’t see the laser with NVGs

    • I can tell you that the Vectronix models do not.

      • noob

        yeah Vector21 is supposed to be 400g heavier than this and reach out to 12km with no laser signature to opposing observation devices.

        I guess this M830r is like a mini version for tankies and APC commanders.

    When I first saw the backdrop for the picture I thought it was a bloodstained carpet. And what would make a better backdrop for a 6000m range finder than that?
