wideglide07's Review of Armasight Zeus 4 Thermal Imaging 42mm Rifle Scope

Reasonable image for a low resolution sensor. DO NOT go by the images presented in the ad or on Armasight's web page. They are not representative of this scope but of the higher resolution models, somewhat deceptive. The operation buttons are very hard to use with normal size finger tips and impossible to use with gloves. The video/ext. power receptacle and provided cable are a disaster waiting to happen. When the supplied cable with it's long stiff strain relief is installed it sticks straight up 3.5 inches above the scope and just begs to get snagged or banged resulting in either a broken cable plug or worse yet a broken scope receptacle. I contacted Armasight to get some explanation about color palettes and scenario functions and got vrtually no useful information from them other than to contact FLIR to ask those questions. Funny, I thought I bought my scope from Armasight! In retrospect I think I would have spent the same amount for a higher resolution scope with more usable control buttons.
Pros:
  • light weight
  • solid mechanical build
Cons:
  • Hard to use control buttons
  • poor design of video/pwr cable and receptacle
  • low resolution for cost
Best Used for:
  • night time varmint hunting at close range
Would Recommend: No
