I have found an add for an older Kahles Helia S4 and a newer Zeiss Victory 4x for a reasonable price. I am after a scope for my 22 rimfire for low light shooting. Does anyone know how the Kahles Parralax will be for closer range shooting? I know the Victory was available in rimfire version, with parallax set for shorter distance. Any ideas how each will compare in low light?

Sorry, should have read Zeiss Conquest 4x,   Not Zeiss Victory.

I own a Kahles 3x9x42 and an older Zeiss Conquest in 4.5x14x44. Both scopes have great glass with a slight edge to the Kahles. As far as low light situations go either of these are fine however I would attempt to find the Zeiss in 4.5x14x50. Fairly affordable and just that much better in low light. It will be my next scope purchase. I shoot rim fire and pcp rifles. Good luck !

The Kahles Helia S4 is from the sixties..... the "s" stands for STEEL.....go with a modern scope....although I bet the Kahles would STILL WORK!!!
