Photo Of The Day – And yes as you probably already guessed we also have the Tikka TAC A1 in 6.5 Creedmoor and a Spuhr mount to carry the heavy burden of the Schmidt & Bender 5-45×56 PMII with Pulsar Krypton FXG50 Thermal Clip-On.
The 5-45 PMII really is something else. I was expecting a riflescope with an extremely tight eye box, but it’s actually a lot more useful than I expected. The reticle on this scope is GR²ID.
The Spuhr mount is tilted, to allow for long-range shooting, but it also means that the adaptor for the thermal front attachment just clears the Picatinny. Not ideal, but good enough to do some testing and evaluation.
The red dot on top is an Aimpoint H2, Cerakoted.
The base color is Patriot Brown Cerakote.
So what does it look like? Here’s a video with Wild Boar filmed with the Pulsar Krypton FXG50.
Below you can see the B&T Industries Atlas Bipods which TFB reviewed recently. The muzzle device is from Ase Utra, a BoreLock to attach a suppressor. The white is in fact snow.

Below is a photo S&B posted on Facebook just a day ago. TFB reviewed the LRR-MIL in 2019: Schmidt & Bender 5-25×56 PMII with Long Range Reticle – Milliradian (LRR-Mil). It’s difficult to comprehend how small the center dot is – my iPhone didn’t notice it!
What a perfect combination! 5-45×56 PM II High Power with our LRR-MIL reticle. Due to the bright illumination you will easily recognize on low power the red center-cross. If you crank up magnification to 45x you will see how the center-cross is interrupted having a free floating red dot in the middle which only covers 1.6 cm at 1000 m!
If you’re looking for a dedicated Thermal Sight instead of a front attachment then the new Pulsar Thermion 2 XP50 might be it for you.
You can find the Pulsar Krypton here. The S&B 5-45×56 PM II High Power can be found here and the T3x TACT A1 here.
An alternative could be the Schmidt & Bender 3-27×56 PMII with Pulsar Krypton FXG50 Thermal Clip-On.
