Sightron SII SS 4.5-14x44mm Mildot

Sightron Optics has been around for several years now and has had a good reputation for bright and solid scopes with very good internal tracking mechanisms. About two years ago they joined the side-focus revolution with the SII scopes and the opportunity came up where we would be able to review an off the shelf 4.5-14 version of this scope (Thanks Wayne). The scope was ordered brand new from our supplier and should be representative of what you would get if you purchased one of these scopes from your local shooting supply store. The 4.5-14 provides a very good middle of the power range scope with good flexibility and a… Read more »

Schmidt and Bender Police Marksman II 4-16x42mm

We had a great time reviewing the last Schmidt & Bender scope we had here so we figured it would not hurt to take a look at another one and see how it compared. The 4-16x42mm version this time around has different knobs, illuminated reticle, as well as a different reticle. It is also setup with MilRad knob adjustments. We have been extremely impressed with all of the S&B scopes we have used and we expected no different from this one, but we figured we had better run it through our set of tests just to be sure. As with all of the S&B scopes that we have handled, this… Read more »

Nikon Monarch X 2.5-10x44mm Tactical Rifle Scope

Nikon has long been a player in the sport rifle scope business and with the boom in popularity that ‘tactical’ scopes have enjoyed over the past decade; it was only a matter of time before Nikon got into the tactical scope game. This actually happened several years ago when they brought in some tactical experts to help them develop their scope and the Monarch X was the result of that. These scopes have been out for a while so it was time for us to review one. The Nikon glass has a good reputation of quality and it sounds like the Nikon Tactical offering was well researched, so we set… Read more »

Mueller Tactical II 3-10x44mm

We reviewed the original Mueller Tactical 4-16x50mm scope a while ago and were favorably impressed with the scope for its price, enough so that we have used it on other rifle reviews and performance checks. So when Mueller Optics contacted us asking if we would be interested in reviewing their new Tactical II scope we said, “absolutely, send it out!”. We originally reviewed a pre production model, but have now reviewed a production version. Mueller optics is a small optics company here in the US that has been selling good value scopes for several years now. They have a reputation of very good value and for standing behind their product… Read more »

Mueller Tactical 4-16x50mm

A few months ago, it was brought to our attention here at Sniper Central that there was a new make of riflescope out there that had been raising some eyebrows with their prices and with reports of some good optics. This company was Mueller Optics. Then, to top it off, it was announced that Mueller would be producing a tactical scope with an illuminated mil-dot reticle. We contacted Mueller to confirm the information and also to get a scope to review. Rich at Mueller optics was a great help and was eager to talk about their scopes and to get them in front of people. We had to wait until… Read more »
