Vector Optics Continental 4-24x56 FFP Details

  • The Vector Optics 4-24x56 riflescope is a high-quality scope with excellent components that offers many features usually only found on more expensive scopes. It is perfect for long-range shooting.

  • The scope features a hard zero stop that is easy to adjust, as well as an additional elevation turret that does not feature a zero stop.

  • There are some areas where improvements could be made, such as the magnification ring having sharp edges and the turrets wobbling slightly when unlocked.

  • The locking mechanism is loud and might be a problem for hunters.

  • The turn indicator is perfect for the first and second revolutions, but it doesn't provide a clear indication of whether you're in the second or third turn.

Vector Optics Continental series

The Continental series of riflescopes is Vector Optics' most expensive line. These riflescopes boast the most features and come with a 34-millimeter main tube.

Optical Properties

The scope has a big field view, which is important for hunting and tactical shooting because target acquisition is much faster. Optically the scope is very b and can be compared to some much more expensive riflescopes. The Continental 4-24x56 riflescope features a six-times zoom factor with a magnification range from 4 to 24 and the 56 millimeters objective lens.

Physical Properties

The housing is entirely made of metal, with the only rubberized area being the ocular. Its nitrogen purged to avoid internal fogging in cold weather. The length of the scope is 362 millimeters. It weighs 855 grams and can withstand recoil up to .338 Lapua Magnum.

Vector Optics chose a very interesting magnification range, especially with the 56-millimeter objective lens. Because of that, this scope can easily be compared to 5-25 tactical rifle scopes.

The reticle in this riflescope is set in the first focal plane, which makes it ideal for bullet drop compensation at any magnification. The VCT-34 reticle is a little thick in the middle and covers too much of the target. But it is great for rapid target acquisition. The VEC-MBR reticle has four lines around the dot in the center and a considerably smaller dot.

With the VCT-34 reticle, only the dot in the middle is illuminated, while the VEC-MBR reticle has the middle dot with four lines around it illuminated. The illumination system has six intensity settings and there is an off position between each intensity level. All the configurations are only useful for darker light situations.

The parallax adjustment is on the same turret as the illumination setting, and goes from 10 yards to infinity. It's very precise up to 200 or 300 meters, but beyond that, it gets very delicate, and you have to make really small adjustments.

One turn of the elevation turret is precisely 10 milliradians. The clicks are extremely tactile, and they have a wonderful feel to them. Both elevation and windage turrets have a locking mechanism with a push and pull design. However, the turrets have some wobbling, both of which are quite apparent when the turret isn't locked.

The Vector Optics Continental 4-24x56 riflescope features a nice zero-stop function. There is also a visual and mechanical turn indicator, which pops out when you come into the second revolution. This function is usually found on more expensive rifle scopes. The windage turret does not feature a zero stop, but it features 16 MIL of total travel of the reticle.

What’s in the Box?

  2. sunshade,

  3. cleaning cloth,

  4. zero tools for the turrets,

Good option for those money By
Overall, this optic offers good value for its price point, with fine optics that provide consistent clicks for adjusting elevation. The return-to-zero function is reliable, and the optic maintains its zero position. However, it's important to note that the rings that come with the optic are not of the best quality. In fact, they broke after just a few shots in low-temperature conditions, causing the optic to wobble on the rifle. If you plan on using this optic for long-range shots, it's recommended to invest in a higher-quality MBR reticle net. Despite this issue, the optics themselves perform well and provide a good option for those looking for a budget-friendly option.
