Hay im new here and from New Zealand

I was wondering if anyone has used a NZ hunter 4-16x40 illuminated reticle scope before?

If so how did it perform?

Welcome Anschutz


I have not seen this scope yet in the US but what I can tell by the construction and the price, chances are

it is not that good. I would stick with a name brand and spend a little more money. This will problably

save you money in the long run. Let us know what else is available in your area and within your budget. -

Welcome to The OT!!


Don't skimp on a lit reticle!! 

A cheap illuminated reticle is far worse than none at all.


Do you hunt at night in New Zealand, or why do you feel compelled to have a illuminated reticle, if you don't mind me asking??

If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

I'd already bought it before I asked here and i've put it on a .303 and it shoots fine, so far at least

I will be doing alot of deer hunting at night with a spotlight and thought the ill reticle may help.

Will keep ya posted on how it goes


Cheers for the help

ok as you know I put it on a .303. I went down and tried it out last weekend It shot a 1.5 - 2 inch group at 100meters which is pretty good for an old rifle as well
