    TFB Behind the Gun Podcast Episode #23: Chris Gaddy from Steiner Optics

    The world of firearms optics is vast and ever-growing. Steiner has been a name in the industry since just after the second world war – born out of the ruin of ware in Bayreuth, Germany. The company, started by Karl Steiner, was created from a one-man workshop whose goal was to create sturdy yet flawless products capable of providing soldiers with reliable optics. This one-man workshop eventually grew into the world-renowned name in optics you know today as Steiner Optics. Today on the show we have Product Manager Chris Gaddy who showed us back at TFB GUNFEST 2021 that Steiner Optics has progressed well beyond their humble beginnings in 1947 and is now producing some extremely high tech battle-ready optics for the modern warfighter or sportsman.
