The international award winning Zenith line of Scopes from Schmidt & Bender are engineered to be some of best scopes on the market today. By concentrating on building only world class rifle scopes intent on quality over quantity, Schmidt & Bender is dedicated to building the finest product possible.

Everything about a Zenith riflescope is designed for ease of use both in the field and at the range. This scope is equally suited for a big game rifle as it is atop an AR-15 for predator hunting and 3-Gun matches. With its tremendous field of view, 35.9 yds/100 yds, and generous three and a half inch eye relief, this is the perfect scope for when quick shots are needed. By being able to reach full magnification in just 180 degrees, a mere half turn of the adjustment dial, coyotes that hang up at a distance and steel plates in a shooting match are easily within reach.

FlashDot Technology makes getting on target as instinctive as shooting a shotgun. With most illuminated reticles, when in the off position, the illuminated part of the reticle is always visible. With the FlashDot Illuminated Reticle, a bright red dot is visible in the center of your crosshairs when activated, but when conditions dictate, the red dot can be turned off and completely disappears from view for more accurate shots at distance. Originally designed and particularly suited for bright harsh lighting conditions during the day, acquiring a target is as easy as shooting a red dot optic. Evolved into the most versatile sighting system created, the Zenith line of FlashDot reticles contains a beam splitter to allow a single scope to function as a non-illuminated scope under normal conditions, a FlashDot scope in bright light, and as a fully adjustable illuminated reticle in low light. The FlashDot Reticle offers an adjustment range suited for any lighting condition a hunter or shooter will ever encounter.

To conserve battery life, a digital chip is built in to turn the power off after six hours of non-use. To take it a step further so you are never without power, a spare battery can be stored under the windage adjustment cap.

The Zenith scope also is equipped with Posicon turrets for both elevation and windage. These turrets are finger adjustable for ease of sighting in. What sets these turrets apart is the reticle position indicator on top of the adjustment knob. It is designed to show you the reticle position relative to the square adjustment range within the scope. This means that when the arrow is pointing within the green range, there will be no reciprocal interference of windage or elevation movement. The red adjustment range can be used if necessary, but is a warning that if too much adjustment in one direction (for example, elevation) could limit available adjustment in the other direction (windage). This allows you to make sure when you mount your scope, you can adjust the rings if necessary to ensure you have the full adjustment range when sighting in. The Posicon indicator also allows you to mark different settings on the silver ring within each turret. You can then easily return to these settings when switching between different bullet weights, styles or different loads. With only one session at the range, you can shoot match ammo in your 3-Gun event and then take the same gun out predator hunting without ever having to re-sight in.
