Schmidt & Bender Polar T96 4-16×56 L7 FFP Illuminated



Availability: 1 in stock

The Schmidt & Bender Polar T96 Series defines a new standard of low-light hunting. As the name implies, it guarantees an overall light transmission of at least 96 %.

Therefore the Polar T96 is the ideal riflescope for hunting in low-light conditions and gives you the precious extra minutes for a successful hunt in the evening. Schmidt and Bender offer this scope in the L7 first Focal Plane with an illuminated red dot. Another unique feature: the Schmidt & Bender patented “Minimum Deviation Technology” allows only a negligible deviation of less than 1 cm at 100 m (0.39” at 109 yd). This is essential for achieving the highest precision since every Second Focal Plane riflescope suffers deviation when rotating the magnification from maximum to minimum. As you can see, the Polar T96 convinces not only with superb optical performance but also with precise and robust mechanics according to our philosophy: “Precision makes the difference”.


Schmidt & Bender lens coatings adhere to the highest technical standards. Nothing less is appropriate in order to fulfill our demands on image quality and light transmission. The Polar T96 riflescopes distinguish themselves from others through the careful selection of high-quality glass material, combinations of highly refractive glass and SCHOTT HD glass. Schmidt & Bender carefully inspects every lens and optical assembly at each production step to ensure they fulfill our requirements. Since our tolerance are very tight we must measure and handpick every single lens. By doing so, we achieve a minimum amount of variation from riflescope to riflescope in regard to optical performance. This is an essential requirement since we guarantee and measure after assembly the outstanding light transmission of at least 96 % for every single Polar T96 riflescope.


You will experience the superior optical performance of our Polar T96 especially when facing difficult light conditions such as moonlight or at dawn or dusk. We have optimized the wavelength depending transmission to suit the human eye sensitivity under low-light conditions. Furthermore, our 3-12×54 with optional parallax adjustment/ side focus is ideal for night vision or thermal objective devices. If you are using such devices be sure to adjust your side focus in order to achieve the best possible image quality with this combination.
