Does anyone have any experiences with the Steiner Predator Xtreme 3*12x56mm? If so, what are your thoughts? I've looked the site over and couldn't find any reviews. Thanks.

From what I understand, they are just rebadged buris euro diamonds, made in the Philippines, not worth near what they are asking for them.

I'm pretty sure the components are made in Germany, and assembled in the U.S.  Theyv'e certainly changed up a lot of things in them, because the listed weight is 30% higher than the Euro Diamond. 

 I also believe Tahqua addressed this in his fleeting references to his Predator, saying he owned a variety of Burris scopes, and it blew them out of the water.  Said it was better than a conquest, optically.  I'm really wanting him to weigh in on this, and flesh out his review.

My understanding was that they were assembled in Colorado too.

I went by SWFA a few weekends ago and asked about them and Skylar told me point blank they were made in the Philippines when I asked about them. Maybe he told me wrong, hopefully he will chime in, but I had asked him about them and wanted to look at one and that was the spill he gave me.

Steiner specifically states on their website that the scope is assembled in the USA.


New Steiner Predator Xtreme Riflescopes Offer Outstanding German Optics at Affordable U.S. Prices


Steiner, the world leader in lens technology and optical design, celebrates another milestone in its 65-year history by introducing its new line of Predator Xtreme Riflescopes. This new riflescope line represents the finest Steiner German optics, technology and engineering combined with the affordability of being constructed in the United States.

“Steiner is pleased to be back in the hunting riflescope business again,” said Rob Siemers, general manager. “The new Predator riflescope line offers hunters the best European optics with superior coatings in a rugged, American-made housing, all at an affordable price.

“With the proprietary Steiner CAT coatings used on these scopes, hunters are certain to see the advantage of the new Predator scopes,” he concluded.

Available in three models, 2.5x-10x-42mm, 3x-12x-56mm and 4x-16x-50mm, the new Predator Xtreme line offers precision-ground lenses with Steiner’s unique CAT (Color Adjusted Transmission) technology. This specially engineered lens coating delivers the highest levels of contrast and light transmission, resulting in bold color contrast between prey and surroundings.

The Predator Xtreme riflescopes will also feature the new Steiner Plex S1 Ballistic etched reticle. The Steiner Plex S1 provides a simple, uncluttered method for determining both trajectory and wind compensation. The reticle presents a series of cascading .25 MOA dots that help calculate drift to compensate for crosswinds. The dots represent bullet drift from a 10 mph crosswind (+/-1.5 inches at 400 yards) for a wide variety of hunting cartridges. For a 5 mph crosswind, halve the distance between dot and reticle. Likewise, for 20 mph crosswind, simply double the distance. The reticle is located on the second focal plane, meaning that the user can utilize the zoom without affecting the measurements.

These new riflescopes are waterproof, shockproof and fogproof. They feature rugged 30 mm tubes with ¼-MOA adjustments for both windage and elevation. Ergonomically designed, large turret knobs and a power ring with deep knurling make removal and adjustments almost effortless. Additionally, The Predator Xtreme’s interchange dials can be reset to “0” once the scope is sighted-in.

With all the features and engineering of a high-end European riflescope, the Steiner Predator Xtreme 2.5x-10x-42mm, 3x-12x-56mm and 4x-16x-50mm are moderately priced at $799.99, $899.99 and $999.99, respectively. They will be available at retailers nationwide in the spring of 2012.

Headquartered in Germany, Steiner has been widely acknowledged as a world leader in the manufacturing of high quality optics since 1947. In addition to the outdoor, hunting and marine markets, Steiner provides products to military and law enforcement worldwide. Allied forces around the world—including the U.S. Army and countless law enforcement agencies—have made Steiner their binocular of choice. For more information, contact: Steiner Binoculars, 920 54th Avenue, Suite 200, Greeley, CO 80634; call (970) 356-1670..

The bottom of my box says Burris USA. No markings on scope.

IIRC, there was someone here last year or so that claimed he worked for them (Burris) that said they did in fact make scopes for Steiner.

Hmm, so I was told wrong. Wish I had been more informed at the time I was purchasing scopes.
