2011 starts a new era of innovation from one of the world's oldest optic manufacturers. Steiner has doubled in house optical engineering capacity in the past 5 years hiring top optical engineers that specialize in state of the art riflescope technologies. R&D outside co-operation and expenditures have increased more than two-fold to get more "cutting edge" developments. Steiner's merger with Beretta has provided both companies with deeper insight into military needs and desires. Steiner has a stellar reputation for building top performing military binoculars and has more binoculars in military use than all competing brands combined. Steiner's increased assets and technologies have allowed them the luxury of designing a precision riflescope from the ground up using the best tools and engineers available. These scopes are not adaptations to existing designs they are completely new from the ground up. Steiner also had the benefit of evaluating everything on the market and were able to use the best performers as their benchmark to exceed. The new Steiner Military Tactical scopes are the real deal and will be seeing duty by many militaries world wide very soon.
