Steiner Launches Their Smallest and Lightest Hunting Riflescope with the Predator 4s
February 5, 2024

Greeley, CO – Steiner Optics, known for precision-made riflescopes and binoculars with industry leading light transmission and clarity, announces the launch of the all-new Predator 4s — the industry’s smallest and lightest premium 4-16X hunting riflescope. This latest addition to the Predator hunting riflescope series is a testament to Steiner's commitment to innovation by delivering a powerful and compact design and setting a new pinnacle for versatility and precision in premium hunting optics.

The Steiner Predator 4s is the world’s shortest and lightest 4-16X hunting riflescope, being 25% shorter than its closest competitors while delivering an astounding magnification range. Built on a rugged 30mm tube chassis and measuring 10.9 inches in length, the Predator 4s weighs just over 18 ounces. This compact, ultralight riflescope fulfills all the requirements of traditional and contemporary hunting scenarios while optimizing weight distribution and optical performance.

The Predator 4s doesn't sacrifice quality for size but improves on it. With an exceptionally generous field of view, Steiner’s legendary glass, and precision component engineering, the Predator 4s ensures bright, high-clarity and high-contrast imaging with remarkable edge-to-edge sharpness. This class-leading optical clarity plus industry-leading light transmission combines with a massive field of view to ensure hunters have the best possible sight picture even in the most challenging lighting conditions.

Further, an illuminated E3 second focal plane reticle with 11 brightness settings delivers a fast and crisp sight picture for quick and confident point of-aim/point-of-impact performance. Foul weather and harsh climates also offer no resistance to the Predator 4s thanks to its fogproof and waterproof design and broad -13°F to +145°F operating temperature.

Designed for versatility, the Predator 4s’ parallax compensation, featuring a large adjustment range is specially tailored for use with thermal imaging attachments while improving weight balance. The reduced length and weight, when compared to conventional riflescopes, help shift weight bias rearward to minimize holding effort while making the shot. This is especially welcome when using clip-on-style thermal units because it makes the rifle more agile when tracking game movement.

Delivering the best in German precision, the Predator 4s promises peak optical performance in a compact, tough, weather-resistant platform suitable for any hunting adventure…anywhere.
