Postby jimmiroquai » Mon Oct 08, 2012 11:58 pm

Does anyone have the Viva arms ZF41? I've been searching the net for a review without success.

I have one.
Quite close visually to an original.
The side mount did not fit easily to the bar on my Tanaka K98. It needed a couple of files to sort that.
Optics? They seem as good as an original my local RFD had on a de-act K98.
Do the adjusting tools fit the repro? No idea, I dont have those.

You mean it hardly magnifies and is a pain in the arse to look through? :lol:

All of those.
The pull out front shade/cover is rather thin and may be the favorite for first part lost.

Thanks for the reply! Is windage adjustable or is it set internally like the original? Does it improve your game much over using iron sights?

All just like the real deal, wind age is a pain to change, not actually tried on mine. Eye relief takes some getting used to and targets take time to acquire.
As was intended by the Germans this is not a sniper tool.

Thanks, then i guess i'll hold out until I can afford a zf39 and turret mounts. I usually play a sniper with a scoped Bar98k conversion...iron sights with limited ammo will take some getting used to.
