    Just got a little package from Schmidt and Bender...

    They have sent us one of the new 1-8x24 PM Short Dot Rifle Scopesfor T & E. Please note, we do not have any to ship out yet. We will be filming a review on the range in the coming days. If you have any questions about the scope leave it on the thread below or in the comments section at the link below and we'll do our best to cover them in the video review.

    Did this so fast, forgot to take pics of the locking turret feature, but we'll cover that in the video...

    Here are some pics below. If you want more, we've posted many more pics on the CST Online Magazine at the link below:

    We will be doing a video review on these scopes they and are not for sale. We do not have a solid ETA when they will hit the market but we are hoping to for late August. Again we are not sure when they will be out.

    If you have question you can post them here and we will try to address them in the video.

    FYI: The photos were done with my iPhone

    More Schmidt & Bender photos.
    Here you see the S&B 4-16x42mm next to the soon to be S&B 3-20x. First thing I noticed was Length of the scopes the 3-20x50mm is a little more compact. If you look 3-20x’s 34mm tube you will also notice that there is more room for the ring in the back half of the scope and less in the front half, I prefer this.

    The video you guys have been asking for is finally here. Thanks to Mason and Eric they were able to recover the video. So with no further ado here it is the S&B Short Dot 1-8x24mm.
