Hi 
Glade I have found this forum.
I have just purchased a new rifle, Sako 85 hunter laminated in 6.5x55. And thinking about the following scopes. Are they any good?
Meopta meostar 3-12x40
 Meopta meostar 4-16x44
 KAPS 2-8X42
Does anyone has any experience with these scopes. I am curious about the Kaps, it is made in Germany and they are an unknown quantity to me.You can view it on this link.
<competitor link snipped> 
kind regards
villihun

Villi is from Australia so doubt either SWFA or the other site can export to him anyway.

Granted but the company is a US distributor and could be seen as competition.

Kaps makes pretty good scopes, but they do not really have a US distributor, so there aren't all that many of them seen on these shores.

I inspected a couple of their tactical models a while back and was impressed with overall build quality and optics, but the knobs were not as good as I would have liked.
