Schmidt & Bender has been manufacturing riflescopes for 60 years. It is a family-owned business, located in Biebertal, Germany, with global offices serving international markets.

Specifically, the 3-12x50, 5-25x56, and 3-27x56 PM II series have been adopted by US Marine Corps and Special Forces groups as well as other elite military groups worldwide. We offer riflescopes manufactured in Germany, as well as in Hungary, for sporting, competition, and tactical applications. At Schmidt & Bender, "PRECISION MAKES THE DIFFERENCE!"

Outlaw Nature

The outlaw nature of the sport has made this a very unique collection of matches in all of the series. Matches are run very differently, focus on different fundamentals and include a vast number of stressors, no two matches are the same! This provides for regional variances that are unique and very challenging.

Born out of Military, Law Enforcement and Hunting scenarios, the practical application of the precision rifle is the underlying theme for all series. Whether you are looking for a local club to join, wanting to compete with America’s favorite rifle the AR-10/15 or you want to test your self against the best shooters in the nation and the world, the Precision Rifle Series has a spot for you.
