    How old are the Steiners? What type are they, Roof or Porro prisms? Roof prisms have the eye lens and objective lens inline. Porro prisms have the objective lens further apart than the eye pieces. Most Steiners have the binoclar name onplates attached to the front of the barrels. The serial number on a porro prism is stamped onto the circular disc on the front of the binocular between the objective lenses. On a roof prism it is located on the underside between both barrels. Is it a green rubber covered military Steiner?

The model of Steiner binoculars is on the plastic plates on the body. On earlier models mainly the green rubber covered military types is is molded at the front of the body near the objective lenses. These were called the Military/Marine and are of a different specification to the current Military/Marine. The original were a military bincocular which has more in common with the current Steiner Military. If you are after the serial number it is located on the front metal disc between the binocular barrels on a porro prism binocular. A porro is where the objective lenses are spaced further apart than the eyepieces. On a roof prism Steiner the serial number is located underneath between the two barrels on the hinge. Roof prisms are binoculars where the objective and the eyepieces are in line. If the serial number is a 10 digit number the 1st and 3rd numbers will give you the year of manufacture.
EG: 9042577777= 1994
If it is five or six digit number then it is the 1st and 2nd numbers
EG: 871245= 1987

SOURCE: how long is the warranty on steiner binoculars

The Firebird model is no longer listed on the Steiner webpage, so I'm guessing it's probably out of warranty already.

How do i tighten the swing action on my stiener safari binoculars?


These binoculars have a 10 yr warranty, so you may contact steiner (http://www.steiner-binoculars.com/) for repair for a nominal charge, however there is an easy fix: You'll need a small (about 1/4 in) screw driver.
1. remove the objective lens protector. This is the small metal piece on the binocular side that is loose, opposite from the eyepiece(part you look through). It appears impossible to "pop" loose from the outside, but if you slip your finger inside(try not to smudge the lense), you'll feel a significant ridge. You may be able to pull / pop it off with your finger, or a small handle.
2. Tighten the screw that is now exposed. Do not overtighten, just a little tighter than what it takes to keep it from "falling" on its own weight.
3. Pop the lens protector back on the object lens.

Steiner Commander Compass


I would contact Steiner. The Commander has a 30 year warranty. Unless there has been some damage caused by you it shouldn;t have leaked. To remove the compass would compromise the seal between it and the body. The body is nitrogen filled and the gas will escape. It's not a home repair job and needs to be sent to the company.

To get your year of manufacture look between both barrels at the front. The disc on the hinge pin will have a number. If it is a ten digit number. The first and third digits will give the year eg: 908245 etc is 98 or 1998.
If it is a five or seven digit number then it is the first two numbers eg 97123 is 97 or 1997.

Eye rubber for 7X50 military marine


You can get the green eyecups for the military marine model from steinerpartsdirect.com I can also recommend changing the standard neck strap with a neoprene one for an older Steiner Nighthunter that is non cliclock. Makes for a much more confortable carry. Just make sure it is one that loops and isn't click lock.
