The Steiner Ranger 4 3-12x56 is an excellent rifle scope that offers great value for the price.
It has excellent optical quality, color fidelity, and light transmission.

The drawbacks are that some people may not like the reticle design, and the lens covers could be improved.
Overall, the Steiner Ranger 4 3-12x56 is an excellent choice for a hunting rifle scope.
After six years, a renowned Ranger series of five scopes has received a makeover. We can call the Ranger 4 as the second generation of Ranger. The original Ranger rifle scopes were one of the finest hunting rifle scopes available for such a low price, and the second generation continues that reputation.
Models in Ranger 4 series:
Steiner Ranger 4 1-4x24 for driven hunt
Steiner Ranger 4 3-12x56 twilight specialist
Steiner Ranger 4 2.5-10x50 all-round hunting scope
Steiner Ranger 4 6-24x56 long-range hunting scope
Steiner Ranger 4 4-16x56 was originally discontinued, but it has since been reintroduced
The most noticeable improvement is probably the field of view, which has been made wider. At 3x magnification, the rifle scope now provides 13 meters of the FOV at 100 meters. The difference, when compared to the first generation, is about 5 to 10% in terms of fields of view.
The light transmission rate has been improved and the colors are better. The riflescopes also fares slightly better at night and in low light. The image is very sharp, there is no tunnel effect.
The Steiner Ranger 4 3-12x56 is a 640-gram rifle scope that measures 35 centimeters in length. For this sort of rifle scope, it's rather standard weight and length. Even in temperatures as low as minus 25 degrees Celsius, you won't have to deal with internal fogging. It comes with a robust aluminum housing and is also waterproof.
With Ranger 4 3-12x56 the parallax is fixed at 100 meters. There are now plus, and minus symbols on the diopter dial for an easier diopter adjustment. The clicks on the turrets are further apart and they produce crisper sounds.
The Ranger 4 3-12x56 comes with a redesigned reticle. In the old series, the lines used to intersect in the middle, and the dot appeared at the intersection when the illumination was turned on. With the new model, the intersection has been replaced with a fine dot and there is a small gap between the lines.
The new Ranger 4 3-12x56 model has eleven illumination settings, and they're split into two sections - the first six of which are for dusk use. Levels from 7 to 11 are more daytime usable, even though they are not strong daytime usable.
The turrets may be reset to zero in a matter of seconds. One revolution has 60 clicks. There are 11.6 MILs of elevation altogether.
Steiner Ranger 4 3-12x56 comes with a 30-millimeter tube for mounting purposes. It's unusual for riflescopes in this price range to come with a mounting rail.
