    Schmidt & Bender PM II 10x42

    Who's running a Schmidt & Bender Police Marksman II 10x42? How do you like it and on the 1/4 MOA version, how much elevation does the first rotation give? Does anyone have pics of it on a rifle, esp a close up of the elevation knob.

    I am thinking of running one on a M40A1 build. My choices are the S&B, USO ST-10 with a 1/2 MOA Erek and 37mm obj, or a Leupold 3.5x10 VXIII M3 with Marine Corp oval mildots.

    I like that you can mount it lower than the 34mm SB's. I'm looking at one myself. Are they a CCW elevation knob?

    I think you can order a CCW. This one was CW.

    How is parallax clarity at close and far ranges, say 100 or 500 yards?

    I have only shot out to 300 yds, but up close I have had no problems. Like I said, its one of the best scopes (clarity wise) I have used.

    Re: Schmidt & Bender PM II 10x42

    I have one on a Robar SR60 (308). I shoot from 100-600. I have had no problems. I think it is the best scope because it is simple (no adjustment). The clarity is excellent, tracks perfect. You will not regret it. Now good luck on getting one.

    S&B PMII 10x42 on 24" GAP Rock .308

    Flawlessly constructed, simple and straightforward, eerily clear and bright.

    I considered the ST-10 as well. I couldn't decide since USO offered all the same features at a comparable price. I made the call just on the "look" of the S&B on this platform and can't be much happier about it. Good luck!

    Re: Schmidt & Bender PM II 10x42

    I had a 10x42mm PMII and sent it to S&B to reset the "parallax-free" distance to 100 or 200m. I thought my USO MST-100 had a better image and sold the S&B.

    Re: Schmidt & Bender PM II 10x42

    How do these scopes do at 1000 + yards, I understand they dont have parallax adjustments so does it make them fuzzy or not as clear at 1000-1500yards?
    I am looking at putting on on a precision 30-06 build

    I recommend the USO ST-10 with ERGO and EREK over the S&B 10x42mm PMI - I have owned and used both.

    a 10x scope of any clarity is gonna be a lil fuzzy at 1500 my friend. I suggest atleast a 17 power
    All I need is my 308, Reloading Gear, and my Stihl 650 and I can take care of my land and family.

    Re: Schmidt & Bender PM II 10x42

    S&B still makes the 10X PMII....not easy to come by though. Great scope. I have two and they have worked very well on a .257 Weatherby and a GAP Non Typical .308. I also used one on an M40A1 for a couple of years. You wont go wrong with it.

    Good luck!!
