SWFA doesn't list Steiner scopes, but does carry Steiner binoculars. Is there any particular reason the scopes are not sold by SWFA? They seem to be competetively prices when compared with other German-made products.  Does anybody on the forum have any experience with Steiner scopes?

I have only seen two Steiner scopes, both were 30mm.  I was under the impression that these scopes were either no longer made or at least no longer imported.

Steiner is no longer in the riflescope business in the USA or anyplace else that I am aware of. The 30mm scopes that ranburr referred to are long gone so if you are seeing any currently for sale, they are probably at least 15 years old. These scopes were made in Germany, a little on the heavy side and didn't have some of the " user friendly" adjustments that others Had during their manufacture. On the bright side, the Had very nice optics and were tough as nails ( mil. spec.). In the early 90's, Steiner teamed up with Leupold to produce a line of 30mm scopes called the " Hunting Z line. Steiner optics and Leupold tubes, turrets etc. After a couple of years of low sales and having to compete with the American mindset toward other brands of European brand scopes, they discontinued the " Hunting Z " line as well. The Hunting Z was a great scope that had all the US user friendly adjustments. If you have come across someone that is selling these scopes, I would strongly advise you to contact the folks at Pioneer Research @ 1-800-257-7742 to inquire about warranty issues in the unlikely event of repair.

We get them on trade from time to time and list them on SampeList.com.  Right now we have an 8x56 Penetrator listed and this week I will be putting a really hard to find little 4x stanag scope calibrated for .223.
