Most of us are familiar with Kahles they are a European scope with very good glass. I actually prefer the heavier reticle of the Kahles compared to the Swarovski but I prefer Zeiss over both of those.
My first experience with Kahles was in the early 80s when a friend bought a Steyer SSG sniper rifle and it came with a fixed 6x42 Kahles they have been around a long time but their history of having a satisfactory distribution importer in the US has been a rather irratic issue.

I have four of them from 1.1-4x24 up to 2.2-9x42. They have excellent glass and have been very reliable. They are alpha class in the case of the 30mm tubed models. I have no experience with 1" models. But members here seem to like them.

Hello cervelo,
I briefly had a Kahles which was at least equal in every way to my Swarovski. Traded that scope/rifle (remind me not to do that again) and would keep it if the deal came back around. Kahles are keepers.
