The Light Recoil Scope.

The SA LRS is the result of a unique collaboration between Schmidt & Bender and Scandinavian Arms to offer the best optical sight for competition shooters around the world.

Through our years as competition shooters, SA recognized the need to make better optics available to a wider audience.

After years of evaluating the scope market we decided to build our scope around Schmidt & Bender’s brilliant and trusted 5-25x56PMII scope. 

The industry benchmark in terms of optical quality and mechanical reliability.


Key features.

Unmatched parallax ranges from 10m to infinity.

Specially designed turrets and magnification ring.

The 1st focal plane Multi Competition Reticle.

Perfect for your airgun and Long Range rifle.

Easier adjusting these when wearing gloves.


  • The 1st focal plane Multi Competition Reticle is designed by SA and offers a clean open center with a center dot and is designed to work well through the full magnifying range, with increasing line size as the magnification decreases.

  • As 95% of the corrections to a well aimed shot is made within a 2-mrad square (80% within the the 1-mrad square) of the center of the reticle. The Multi Competition Reticle offers a reference points at each corner of the 2-mrad square to assist the shooter to quickly make corrections.

  • A thin lined measuring scale is located at the top right of the center to assist in the estimation of unknown distance targets in field shooting competitions.

  • An SA “Hold-Over” reticle will be available as an option later in 2023.
