I was in the market to upgrade the scope on a custom Savage 7mm Remington Magnum. I looked at the Monarchs and even ordered one, the 3.5-10x50 model. It was at the time the best scope I had ever had. Then I started looking on the samplelist and decided screw it, I'm gonna go all out. I ordered a Kahles C 3-12x56 30mm tube. The list said it was like new condition. I have returned the Monarch. OK, then I decided to upgrade the scope on my Tikka 300WSM. I thought, maybe the Monarch again. I again went to the samplelist. This time I ended up ordering a Kahles KX 4-12x50 for the Tikka. That's not all, I told a friend about the scopes I bought and the prices and he's not an internet person and he asked me to order him a scope. From the samplelist he ordered the Kahles KX 3.5-10x50. I have ordered 3 scopes within a week. I never thought I would spend this much on optics. I think I have a disease now. I just hope with the money I spent, this will be huge upgrades to the Nikons and Leupold stuff I am used to.

There is no known cure for the disease, and symptons will probably get worse.  The only recommended treatment is to spend hours (even at work) on Optics Talk Forum.

And I feel sick for ordering two scopes last week!

 

Its not all bad.  At some point you will reach a ont were the scopes you have will fullfill all your expectations and youl stop trading them.

 

I went thru this with my shotguns and now Im totaly happy with the one shotgun I have now. Tes,t costs a bundle but its so awsome that I cannot even think about replacing it.

 

I havent found the rifle that I feel the same way about nor a handgun.  Knife yes, Scopes, we'll see after I get them next week....ok,my name is smitty and I'm just as addicted as you are!
