Schmidt & Bender Scopes PM II Line
The versatile scopes in the PM II line cover every conceivable application scenario: from the use of a PM or PM II ShortDot scope on an assault rifle in house-to-house combat, to the use of a PM II High Power scope on a .50 BMG to engage tactical targets over extremely long distances. The world leadership role played by Schmidt & Bender PM II scopes was underscored significantly when it was used to win the Precision Sniper Rifle competition of the American special forces, drawn from Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps back in 2011. Prior to that, the 3-12×50 PM II emerged as the victor from a two-year test conducted by the US Marine Corps involving 25 other products, after which it became the scope used by the USMC.
Schmidt & Bender 1.5-8×26 PM II ShortDot
Small, compact and pinpoint accuracy.
- Short riflescope for assault rifles
- Tactical reticle with FlashDot in the first focal plane
- Lockable turrets specifically developed for safe transport
- Available in colors PANTONE 7504 M and RAL 8000
Schmidt & Bender PM II ShortDot scopes were tailor-made for mobile use in urban terrain and have been adapted continuously to suit the new requirements of these combat environments. The 1.5-8×26 PM II ShortDot is the first scope of the ShortDot line with a 34-mm tube. This configuration was selected with the intention of providing a good elevation and side adjustment range even with 8x magnification. The tried-and-true FlashDot is located in the center of the tactical reticle in the first focal plane and can be used with a night vision device as well as for a target in bright daylight. The perfectly round red dot in the first or second focal plane can be switched off altogether, and it assures quick and optimum target acquisition.

Schmidt & Bender 5-20×50 PM II Ultra Short
The shortest marksman scope of all time.
- Ultra-short sniper riflescope for long distances
- Ultra-flat lockable elevation turret with two revolutions and MTC function
- Flat windage turret with cap and zero-stop function
- Various tactical reticles in the first focal plane available
The 5-20×50 PMII Ultra Short was developed for use with attachments on short rifles. With a length of less than 30 cm, it is the shortest sniper scope in the world and a true lightweight. The ultra-compact elevation turret – available as single turn or double turn – can easily be used with a red dot sight that is installed on the back mounting ring to bridge close distances. Thanks to the precise parallax adjustment and a large field of view, medium- and long-range targets can be easily identified and combatted. As on the other scopes for sniper use, the turret also has an MTC setting and can be locked in place. The side turret has a cap to prevent unintentional adjustment. Illumination of the reticle in the first focal plane is optional.
