P4Xi 1-4x24 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just received yesterday What a great scope. I received the scope yesterday. I have waited over a year to purchase a scope for my AR-15. A guy I follow on Instagram had just ordered this. I had never heard of it. After my research, I concluded this is the scope to have. The optic quality is above top notch. The red dot range is perfect. The included throw lever is a very nice bonus. The perfect size and optic range. Great German optics. I hope to shoot it this weekend. Keep up the great job Steiner on quality, American Made products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4.5/5 stars Great Value optic Great optic. Can only compare to Vortex Strike Eagle, and Trijicon ACOG..With that being said. PRO: The glass is clear. the red dot is daylight bright even in the Arizona sun. The reticle itself is simple, clean and easy to use. The build quality of the scope is amazing, especially considered its price. CON: Newish scope that lacks detailed documentation ( What size power ring is the optic, so you can purchase a throw lever?) The 1x isnt a true 1x, its slightly larger. Still very workable and quick, better than other 1-x scopes I have used in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steiner P4Xi 1-4x24mm This optic has been good to me so far. I've taken it out to the range 3 times and it's held up to my usage. The glass quality is superb. It is not a true 1x scope, but it's pretty close. The illuminated red dot really sets it apart from others. A throw lever is a must-have because the dial is pretty stuff to adjust. Also, a lot of people mention that the turrets are a little bit mushy, while this is true, the scope is a set it and forget it type. Zero the optic and place the covers on the turrets, then you'll never feel the mushy turrets ever again. I would give this optic a 4/5 stars, only because i've had it for a short time. I really do enjoy this optic, and I'm glad I went with Steiner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Glass Very impressive. Bright, clear glass. Very clean and distinct etched reticle. The red dot is vey crisp and perfectly centered. It is daylight bright on some of the lower settings even in sun. 1X seems truly 1X with no distortion or anything. Very rugged, zeroing took only a few clicks each way. Compared back to back to. trijicon TR24 the glass is equal if not better. Much prefer the red dot to the green triangle. No negatives at all. Very impressive and for the price I don't think you can get much nicer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Factor! I'm very satisfied with all the features. The Steiner P4Xi is optically clean, with extremely bright and crisp resolution. The ample internal adjustment easily corrected some otherwise difficult mounting issues. The etched glass reticle is flawless and well defined. The illuminated dot is the perfect size, with eleven brightness settings allowing the perfect illumination level for any lighting condition. I like the lower settings in daylight, giving just enough illumination without aberration. The low profile capped turrets are nice, the scope adjustments stay put. The compact overall size is a plus as is the lifetime warranty. This scope is made in the USA and item #5202 comes with a free "throw lever", a very useful upgrade. Factoring in the modest price tag this scope is simply amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of glass Mounted on an ar15 chambered in 450 bushmaster. I handled a leupold mk ar mod 1 and a vortex 1-4 all side by side and this scope was the clear winner. The eye box was way larger and glass much more clear and crisp the free set of rings also helps

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear, solid, Excellent Sight! Mounted and sighted in last week on my daily carry patrol rifle. Excellent sight. Per Steiner recommendation, I used the extra high TSeries Rings. It co-witnessed with the stock front sight, yet doesn't interfere with using the optic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This scope is awesome! This scope at the price point has all the features I was looking for in an AR-15 type scope, clear glass, red dot illumination is good, huge eye box at 1x. Nothing bad to say about it. I like it so much I bought 2 of them!

Will the illuminated dot be blurred by astigmatism? I've noticed in some etched glass it doesn't (prism scopes), but I looked at another scope where just a dot was illuminated and it was distorted.

Asked by: gogobuffalo
Typically, astigmatism will distort projected aiming point, but with the P4Xi having an etched reticle, it should have no more distortion than the reticle of any other riflescope.

What is the difference between the P4XI and the Military scope 1-4x24 item #5146? I noticed the MSRP on item 5146 is more expensive but wasn't sure why.

Asked by: pwig
The P4Xi is a more economical build for LE and competition shooters in mind. The Military 1-4x is actually an older model that was discontinued a couple years ago, but is a much higher grade of optic with a more robust design intended to withstand extreme combat applications.
