Hey fellas, any field reports on the current generation V4 -16 or -24x models with updated knobs?

Been eyeing those for future builds since they tick off a lot of boxes for me.

Thanks!

I am still using 2 V4s. I have not had any issues with them.

I love mine. Light weight but sturdy turrets. Tracks perfect. Shot it out to 1200yds. Couldn't be happier.

For the money it’s hard to find more features or better glass. The Maven RS.5 looks like it would be a great option too. It wasn’t available when I bought my V4. Red hawk rifles typically has demo models of the V4 at a discounted $

Just got finished setting up my brother in laws Model 70 300 wsm. I bedded the Murphy precision stainless rail and set the scope in Hawkins precision low rings. Pretty awesome little setup.

This is the V4 4-16X44 zmoa2
Glass is excellent. I'm impressed initially.

Only one nit pick so far. Zeiss should drop the plastic windage cap for metal IMO.


Edit:
I meant to mention to be sure and reach out to sport optics for pricing on scopes. They offer some discount for LRO members. That is where this scope came from. Bought several from these guys now and they're excellent.

Did a reviews for LRO on the 6-24 and liked it so much I ended up getting 2 4-16’s V4’s for my boys rifles. For scopes in that price point I think they’d it’d be hard to find something better

Many thanks fellas!

For Ryan and Broz, which powers models are you currently using?

Are these the current production with new windage adjustment?

My only nit pick is the adjustments are in MOA instead of MILS but that's any easy fix.

Thanks fellas!

I actually have a couple. A 4~16 and a 6~24. I like the 6~24 best for my needs. They are the new models with the new windage turret. The early models are just fine if used as intended and hold the wind in the reticle. They were not intended for dialing. The newer current model if fine to dial. I prefer MOA it is easier.

I have two 6-24s. One capped windage and one locking windage. Both are great. I much prefer the thinner reticle.

I have two of them one 4-16, one 6-24. Zero issues with either of them, I feel they have very good glass in their price range.

I have 4-16x44 on a .243. I have taken it from different distances 200-700 yards dialing up and down. I have had no issues. For the price it is a great scope.

I have the 4-16x50 with the locking windage turret. Love it!

Thanks fellas!

Looks like it's gonna be a toss up for me between then -16x and -24x.

Do you fellas feel the 6x is low enough for still hunting through timber?

Kinda looking for the one-all-do-all, if the V4 came in 3-18 or the V6 3-18 came lumed AND dials; I would go broke.

What do you guys think?

You’ll be just fine in the timber with 6x. That’s where my grandpa used to make me set mine when I was starting out as a kid.

I have two V4 s both are 4 x 16 x 44 with zero issues. One is the z moa 2 I bought when they first came out and the newer generation T 30 retical which IMHO is perfect. It has a nice fine retical but its thick enough to see in the timber.
