Description

A mil. spec. tactical binocular with the U.S. Army M-22 reticle, which can be used in conjunction with a variety of mil. dot or other reticles and riflescopes. This is the model used by many law enforcement and special operations units (they discourage us from telling you which ones), so let's just say these binoculars are ideal for many tactical applications under extreme conditions, especially if you're constantly on the move. This 8 x 30 is lightweight, compact, and fits easily in a coat pocket; brilliant CAT optics deliver excellent performance in low light, and at only 18 oz., their nighttime or low light performance is truly impressive.

About Steiner
From its humble, post-WWII beginnings, Steiner has become one of the largest manufacturers of high-quality optics. Optics pioneer Karl Steiner established Steiner Optik GmbH in 1947, offering products from small cameras to binoculars and special lenses. As the company grew, it increasingly focused its production on professional high-quality binoculars. Steiner innovations include rubber armoring, the first binoculars ever with an integrated compass, the first binocular with special optical coating to protect against harmful UV radiation, the pocket-size binocular, and the new Predator lens coating to increase contrast of animals against wooded backgrounds.


Today, Karl Steiner's son Carl continues to strengthen and develop the company's position as a world leader in binocular production, utilizing the highest level of technology and setting high standards for future products with all binocular manufacturers. Steiner is located in Moorestown, N.J.

        My son wanted these binoculars before he left on deployment. We looked for several weeks trying to find the exact ones he wanted. I finally found them on Hayneedle[...] Will look on this web \site first for the things he needs.

          Comments about Steiner 8x30 Military R Binoculars:

          This is a very good and reliable product. These are optically sound binoculars, with the M22 reticle for estimating size/distance. They are somewhat heavy for the power/field-of-view, but this is primarily due to their robust waterproofing and shock-resistance (always a trade-off).

            The quality glass is well worth the additional money. Do not be fooled by the 30mm lens, excellent low light images.

              Comments about Steiner 8x30 Military R Binoculars:

              I recently used these on a trip through Arizona to use for backpacking. Couldn't be happier with the way these worked! Crystal clear lenses, excellent performance in low light, and powerful enough to see small objects from miles away. (In the Grand Canyon, I could clearly spot people walking around the top of the canyon from deep below.) May be a bit heavy for backpacking but the performance and clarity made the extra weight worth carrying. The rugged construction held up to all the abuse of camping in below freezing weather and rainy conditions. The reticle came very much in handy for estimating distances from landmarks. While a bit on the pricey side, you get what you pay for in terms of quality and construction. Looking forward to using these for years to come. By light years, better than any other set of binoculars I've owned.

              Customer Q & A

              Q1: What is the  close focus distance for these binoculars?

              A: The close focus is approximately 12 feet

              Q2: I am looking for a good binos with best low light-nighttime performance& now i wanna make a decision between 8x30 Nighthunter XP & 8x30 Military R, Would you please help me to choose the two?

              A: Both the Steiner 8x30 Military R and Nighthunter binoculars do very well in low-light conditions. The Nighthunter's optical coatings, however, give a shade better low-light performance than the 8x30 Military's.
