Schmidt & Bender 5-25×56 PM II PSR Limited Edition

As most readers know Schmidt & Bender (Germany) won the Precision Sniper Rifle Program of the United States Special Operations Command.  Since 2011 S&B have been been supplying the Special Forces of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines with high quality optics.

There is a limited edition of that scope. There are only 300 on the market, each with a numbered emblem (see front of scope).

The scope is called S&B 5-25×56 PMII PSR (Precision Sniper Rifle), and the part number is 677-946-532-B2-A8B20.

If that’s enough of a reference, a lot of the units at the European Best Sniper Squad Competition use the S&B scopes as well. Check our previous article loaded with images here.

 

 

A great optic for sure, but it would have been nice to see some more reticle options than just the TReMoR2. Like the newly designed LRR-MIL (milliradian-based intelligent reticle) or MSR for instance.

TReMoR2. In low resolution.

 

The price? You know the saying, if you have to ask…?

Well with TFB you don’t have to ask a sales person, we’ll tell you that the price is set at USD 3975. You can find N# 8 here.

But if you can afford the rifle that won the same program, the scope is peanuts. The Remington Precision Sniper Rifle costs around USD 21,000, at least at Eurooptic.  LINK.

Another way of being unique and Tacti-Cool, is to get a Heckler & Koch label on your Schmidt & Bender (3-20×50), like on the G28E / G28Z.

    I know just the rich IT guy that would love to park this in his 7th gun safe, along with countless other treasures that never see the light of the range.

      I wish I was him, even though I don’t like the color or emblem;-)

    Nice scope…
    It would be even nicer without the PSR medallion.

  • MeaCulpa

    That is suuuuuuper tacky S&B. Shame on you!

  • will ford

    I am processing the paperwork as I write this for my SECOND MORTGAGE to get one. YEEEHAW!

  • Bulldogdriver

    Why doesnt SOCOM buy USA? I am sure Nightforce or Leupold can offer something similar.

    • ARSac68

      Nightforce, yeah. Leupold, meh.

      Nothing is american in small arms.

      FN has the monopoly on most small arms, SIG/Beretta has handgun. Remington has the bolt actions (Basically only American Company for small arms)

      But i whole heartedly agree, wish everything was american designed, made, and owned.

      At least most of the small arms are made in country and employ many americans.
