Any one had experience with these? Was hoping to have enough cash to get the new V4 zeiss but I may be a bit short. Had a look through one at the shop, they are not to bad. I would go with Leupold vx5 however the reticle selection is crap.

Greg Duley did a review in his magazine. He liked it for the money.

Yea read that. Wasn't sure how much of a problem it would be that it he said it wasn't true MOA. Have decided on a different one and my wife may yet release the extra to get the V4 I want. She's a good women!!

Congratulations to your wonderful wife (and the nice scope). My wife would support hunting not even out of the grave Angry

I am not yet experienced with rifle scopes but I´ve been reading a lot. A friend of mine hunts with the Zeiss conquest V4 3-12x56 to his full satisfaction. Hard competitors of the V4 are here Kahles Helia and Schmidt&Bender Zenith, some like also Steiner Ranger in this league. Here in Germany it is essential to see the wild pigs at moonlight at night because they are only active by night. If not disturbed they would be day active, but since in Germany doesn´t exist any backcountry the wild animals are disturbed anywhere.

Waidmannsheil with that great scope
