The history of Steiner optics brand started during a post-war period in 1947 with a Karl Steiner’s one-man workshop in Germany. The founder dreamed of creating high-quality functional optical products that could be compared to nothing in the existing world.
The production of Steiner scopes began in 2010 with the line of military scopes, which, no wonder, cost a pretty penny. Later, there followed a line of tactical scopes and a hunting one. In 2011, Steiner put the second hunting line (the Predator rifle scopes, which, luckily for customers, cost about half of military ones) into a mass production.
