Clarity Of Binocularity

Trust us. For once. 

Everyone knows the saying, "You get what you pay for." However, few people know the follow-up: "But sometimes you get about twice as much as you pay for." That's the deal with these Steiner 8x30 Military Spec Binoculars.

These are serious, European special-ops military-grade binoculars for serious binocularists. But through some fluke of tariffs and trade agreements and so forth, we've managed to sell them at a pretty spectacular discount. They ain't cheap, but superior, lightweight optics never are (as the saying goes).

To put this deal in terms we can understand, this is like paying $3 for a shot of well vodka and getting served a Grey Goose martini. Or playing nickel-keno and winning dime-keno payouts. Or giving your cousin $800 cash for a 1992 Honda Civic, and receiving a 1999 Honda Accord instead. In short: Our lives are very sad.

The Steiner 5912, 8x30 Military R is a military spec. tactical binocular, the same as the model #481 but with a different reticle. This model is used by many special operations units because of its compact size, outstanding durability and extraordinary image brightness. Ideal for many tactical applications under extreme conditions, especially if you’re on foot or have space and weight limitations. The 8x30 R is lightweight, compact, and fits into a coat or BDU pocket. The brilliant optics deliver excellent performance in low light, amazingly at only 18 ounces.
