It's a gamechanger

TAGS:

The ZEISS Conquest V4 scope has already caught the attention of airgunners, thanks to its ability to parallax down to 10 yards.

Versatile and useful, the Conquest V4 works round the clock, both outside on the range and inside for pest control.

From dawn to dusk

When the mist is swirling at dawn the Conquest V4 deals with poor visibility efficiently.

As the dusk falls, dark targets can be dealt with thanks to the efficient contrast controls, with the central point of the 60 crosshair illuminating to suit you and the conditions you find yourself in. The Conquest V4 is never too bright and never too dim because you set it to suit you. There are 10 degrees of brightness to experiment with for optimal vision. Just adjust the outer dial on the left hand turret for light and the inner dial for parallax adjustment.

Even with cold hands it’s easy to adjust

Colder weather

Even when you’re wearing gloves to deal with the chill you won’t be fumbling with the controls. Dials are ergonomically designed with grooves for a steady grip, turning smoothly for parallax adjustment and light conditions. However the zoom ring is set firmly enough to stay put when touched unintentionally.

The Conquest V4 deals with damp too, as it is waterproofed and nitrogen-purged to prevent fogging.

Wind and rain

In strong gusts the V4 holds its own. Aim point layouts assist with pellet placement when shooting in crosswinds so that precision is never compromised by conditions. The adjustable windage turret has clear and reassuring click stops, with each adjusting aim point by ¼ MOA. Pull it up for swift adjustment and snap back down into position.

Ease of use

The Conquest V4 is designed to be intuitive to use and users will quickly learn to assess the holdunder and holdover required for various distances. Airgunning targets are thrown into sharp relief from 10 yards to infinity. You can set a stop position with the Ballistic elevation turret to return accurately to zero.

Reviewers have reported adding their own calibrated distance markers to estimate range accurately and quickly when the target appears.

Weighing just over half a kilogram (or 22.6oz) the Conquest V4 is an unobtrusive bit of kit that won’t weigh you down. Its presence is felt only by the superb performance it turns in.

Airgun targets

Airgunners will find the Conquest V4 the ideal telescopic sight for range shooting, pest control and field targets. It’s a useful companion for everyday use when light is challenging and will work over medium and long distances. Thanks to the 16x setting, targets are thrown into sharp detail.

Walking along hedgerows or inside barns low light isn’t an issue as everything comes into focus and targets are more easily identifiable.

Maintenance

The Conquest V4 is designed to be tough and sturdy. Lenses are water repellent and any muddy splashes can be wiped off.
