Vanguard Endeavor RSIV
4–16x44 $480 Eyepiece illumination module
This is a very good value on a decent allaround 30mm hunting scope. The glass and controls earned only middling scores, but the reticle is very well done. It has a useful number of holdover and windage references and is adequate for a variety of hunting tasks or limited precision work out to 600 yards, giv- ing the Endeavor a high versatility score. The resettable-zero turrets are a little mushy, and we recommend adding revolution indexing to avoid getting lost in the knobs. The eyebox illumination module is overly obtuse, but we love this 4X magnification configuration and low-profile objective.
