The Ranger 4 2.5-10x50 is a great option for those looking for an all-round hunting scope in the price range of around €1000.
The second generation of this scope brings many improvements, including a more premium feel, crisper clicks on the turrets, and an increased field of view.
Optically, this Steiner scope is still one of the best in its price class, with a sharp image that is clear edge to edge.
However, some users may not like the new reticle design, and the illumination is not as bright as it used to be. It is better in low-light though.
After six years, a popular Ranger series of five scopes has finally received an upgrade. We can refer Ranger 4 as the second generation of Ranger.

The Steiner Ranger 4 2.5-10x50 is an all-around hunting riflescope. The magnification ring and dioptre ring on this model move more smoothly than they did on the previous version. The chassis is now a tad glossier compared to the previous generation. This is due to the scratch resistant hard anodizing that covers the body of this rifle scope.
Ranger 4 2.5-10x50 has a 30-millimeter mounting tube.
Ranger riflescope feature hunting, low profile turrets. They can also easily be reset to zero. The turrets now produce crisper clicks, and the clicks are further apart from each other so that you can feel them better. Altogether we have 14.5 MIL of elevation, and we have 60 clicks in one revolution of the turret.
In the instruction manuals, the reticle is still referred to as 4-AI (4-A Illuminated) The difference between the old and new model is in a fine dot in the middle instead of the intersection of lines.
