If the 4i can’t be found, the circle dot is basically a German 4 when not illuminated.

I actually sent my Z6 ee back to Swaro to have the CDS converted to 4i. Unfortunately the Swaro CDS illuminates both the dot and the circle. At last light the illuminated circle totally washes out the target. I love Swarovski products but I will never own another CDSi. IMO this is a major miss on their part.

I recently purchased a Noblex 1-6x24 German #4 with illuminated red dot in the centre. Mounted it on my Verney-Carron bolt action 9.3x62. Couldn't be happier! I don't know about "best" but it was about half the cost of other scopes of reasonably comparable quality. Optics Trade in Slovenia sell them.

I have Leupold, Meopta and Zeiss scopes with German #4 reticles. It is my favorite reticle and most of my scopes have them. One of my Leupold’s has an illuminated #4 which to me is the best of two worlds. Only the the dot is illuminated, the bars are not. I don’t believe I’d like the whole reticle lit. My Marlin 336 that I hunt hogs with has a German #4, it’s a VX-3 1.75-6x32. I think if I had it to do over again I’d try a German #1, but I’ve been vary pleased with it. If I had the guitas I’d probably go with a Leica having an illuminated #4.

I have a Leupold VX6 1-6X with illuminated no. 4 reticule on my .404J. This scope is from the Leupold custom shop. Very good scope (it would be better if it was a 1" tube!). The custom shop is CLOSED and has been for over a year. No idea if or when they might re-open the Custom Shop. Disappointing.

Leupold does offer German #1. Just not on the illuminated scopes. I also like the Trijicon post as it is always illuminated.

England year round and Namibia x5.
I would suggest you have a look at the Steiner Ranger range of optics.
I have two. A 2-8x42 for my .300WinMag barrel and a 1-4x24 for my .375H&H barrel on my Mauser.
I think they're quality scopes.

CM,
That is nice work! I would like that cartridge slide for 50-110 Win. I would also use it for 500 S&W. Six cartridge loops would be perfect for me.

I will send you payment immediately.

Thank you,

Brian Gallup
