The New Steiner H6Xi Riflescope Series: Tactical-Grade for Modern Hunters

Following last year’s release of the T6Xi series of tactical riflescopes, Steiner Optics, known for precision made riflescopes and binoculars with industry leading light transmission and clarity, releases a new lineup of premium optics designed with the modern big game hunter in mind—just in time for the 2023 hunting season.

Boasting similar military and law-enforcement DNA as the T6Xi tactical riflescope series, the all-new H6Xi series is designed for serious hunters who demand an optic that blends unfailing precision, versatility, and exceptional optical performance in a package capable of conquering the most extreme hunting environments.

The H6Xi series is comprised of three models, covering those who count ounces on the trail to those looking for enhanced magnification. The first focal plane 6x optical system is offered in 2-12x42mm, 3-16x50mm, and 5-30x50mm zoom ranges, and sets new benchmarks and expectations in what German-inspired, American-made hunting scopes should be.

Milled from solid aerospace-grade 6061-T6 aluminum, the H6Xi 30mm tube delivers a rugged waterproof, fog proof, and shockproof design with weight and compactness in mind. Several additional key features have been incorporated for hunters who stand ready for difficult shots.

Optical clarity and maximum light transmission come courtesy of Steiner’s world-renowned HD (high density) lenses. These are backed by the illuminated Steiner MHR reticle set to the first focal plane. This Modern Hunting Reticle presents duplex crosshairs for quick aiming in the lower magnification range and precise, illuminated denotation for wind drift and bullet drop when zoomed in for distant shots. Matched with 92% light transmission and a wide field of view, the H6Xi riflescopes ensure hunters can locate their targets and apply a sighting solution quickly and easily in the most challenging conditions.

A low-profile elevation turret is sized to reduce the snag-and-bump potential common to hunting scopes with tall target-style turrets. Easy-to-read numbers, tactile detents with audible clicks, and a zero click stop let hunters make confident and precise adjustments even in low light conditions. A capped windage knob ensures piece of mind when trudging through brush or bumping against rocks.

Further adding to its diverse capabilities in changing environmental and shooting conditions, the H6Xi offers 11 illumination settings. Two night vision settings, four night settings, and five day settings ensure shooters can always find the right illumination regardless of the scene.

Backing the illumination dial is the focus adjustment knob. Tuned for the broadest shooting range spectrum, the fine parallax adjustment extends from 25 yards to infinity so you can always be confident of point-of-aim, point-of-impact performance.

Ergonomically, the H6Xi boasts a lightweight design—an important consideration for the modern backcountry hunter, where ounces equal pounds. To accommodate gloved and wet hands, all knobs and the power adjustment ring feature aggressive knurling for no-slip operation. The diopter also comes with a locking ring, meaning there is no chance of accidentally moving the eyepiece out of focus.

Steiner continually seeks merge the latest technology and precision manufacturing with optic designs to match specific needs for the demanding hunter. The new H6Xi series riflescopes certainly deliver—whether you are pursuing sheep on windswept mountain ranges or stalking whitetail in the hardwoods.
