Arken Optics LH4 4-16×44 Riflescope

Each year, the Shot Show reveals thousands of new products in the firearms and outdoor industry from all over the globe. This year, our marketing team visited the Show and talked to Josh at the Arken Optics booth about their latest product, the Arken Optics LH4 4-16×44 riflescope.

The features of LH4 4-16×44 Riflescope

Despite being a relatively young player in the industry since 2019, Arken Optics has quickly built a strong reputation. Although still a small team, they have gained a significant foothold in North America’s shooting market and are expanding their reach globally, including in Europe.

A recent addition to their lineup is the LH4 4-16×44 Riflescope, launched in the fourth quarter of 2023. With the LH4, Arken leans towards a more traditional and hunting-oriented design with 30 mm main tube. The riflescope features capped elevation and windage turrets that, once set, remain secure against accidental adjustments during hunting. Both MIL and MOA configurations are available, with Turret Adjustment either in 1/10MIL or 1/4MOA.

The turrets can be adjusted by hand without using any tools which adds to the ease of use in the field. The center post cap can be easily taken out and then the turret can be repositioned to where you need it. Additionally, the LH4 offers an adjustable parallax from 9.14 meters (10 yards) to infinity. The scope is nitrogen-purged, allowing it to be used in very low temperatures without the lens fogging up. The resulting image is clear and sharp, free from blurring or distortion, and maintains clarity to the edges.

The LH4 offers a 1-6 setting for the illuminated red reticle, available in both VPR windage-tree-style and VHR crosshair configurations. Although the scope is designed as a hunting device, Arken has incorporated first focal plane reticle positioning, which is an approach that might be seen as unusual, especially for European users.

The scope is made of high-grade aluminum, measures 335.2 mm (13.2 inches) in length, and weighs 693 g (24.5 oz), which won’t significantly increase the rifle’s weight. In fact, it’s among the lighter models available.

Accessories, Warranty and Price

In the box, you will find the scope, a bikini cover, and a sunshade, with additional accessories such as a throw lever and rings available for purchase separately.

As usual, Arken Optics provides a lifetime warranty for this scope in the US, covering it for as long as it remains in production. In the EU, due to regulations, the warranty is specified in years, likely to be 10 years. Customers who aren’t satisfied with their purchase have a 30-day return period for a full refund, no questions asked. We’d like to suggest that offering the LH4 in a Second Focal Plane (SFP) configuration could further appeal to the broader European market. However, we do recognize and appreciate the optical quality of the LH4, which stands out as one of the better options in its class. The final price is yet to be determined, so stay tuned to our blog for updates.

From our observations of the company and numerous user testimonials, it’s clear that Arken Optics is also rapidly gaining popularity in Europe. This trend isn’t surprising given the high-quality devices they offer at competitive prices. We think the company is on the right track and are looking forward to testing the units in the field.
