Steiner Police Binoculars will give you a Better View!!!

Mar 30, 2012 • News4 Comments

I just read a news report that really highlights the difference between various binoculars.  In the article, a man and woman were siphoning gas out of commercial trucks at night.  I suppose the exorbitant cost of gas these days drove them to the act, but they thought that the cover of darkness would protect them.  Quite a bit of gas was stolen by the pair over the course of a few days, and though security cameras could see the couple, the image was not clear enough to catch them.

The man crept into the parking lot between the trucks, which provided just enough darkness to fool the cameras.  The woman kept a lookout at their car.

What they didn’t expect was a police officer to be monitoring the area with a high quality pair of police binoculars.  The article didn’t say what type of binoculars they were, but I’d bet they were similar to the Steiner 10x50mm Police Binoculars.  In addition to their incredible toughness and waterproofing (which is an absolute must-have for any tactical purpose) these fantastic binoculars have large 50mm objective lenses, which make them very bright.  The larger the objective lens, the more light is gathered, and this translates to more detail in  low light situations.  With smaller objective lenses I doubt the police officer would have been able to see well enough to identify the thief.

What’s really funny about this is that the woman waiting in the car had a pair of binoculars as well, but she was not able to see the police officer.  Again, I don’t know what kind of binoculars she was using, but I bet she didn’t invest in quality optics like Steiner Police Binoculars.

    I WOULD PURCHASE THIS IF IT ALSO HAD A RAIL SYSTEM SO i COULD ADD OTHER LIGHTS, OR A LASER TARGETING LIGHT.

    Ok what is new Surefire has been making replacement forearms with lights for year for both Remington and Mossberg, problem is the cost low in being 300.00. You can get a replacement forearm with a rail and attach a 1 inch mount with a tac light a do the same thing. I set up 3 shotguns for what one would cost if I did a surefire replacement forearm.

  3. Brian says:

    That’s a great idea, and one we hope SureFire looks into as well! I will say this particular light is so ergonomic that an additional rail might make it too bulky, but there does seem to be room on the end for a rail. Maybe next years model will have further customization options.

  4. Brian says:

    This particular model and the intuitive and ergonomic design is what’s really new with the SureFire Mossberg Forend light. You certainly can buy a regular replacement forearm with a rail, but the great design on this light makes it much easier to turn on without changing your grip.
