Just watned to pass along some information I unearthed as I was filing some paperwork.  I have three Kahles CL scopes, (two 2-7 and one 3-9).  They all came with the Plex reticle, which is why they were a bargain to begin with.  I had the reticles changed out to 4As before SONA stopped servicing them.  On the receipts, they list the reticle as AV 3-9/3-10/Kahles 3-9/2-7.  So it appears that for the 1" tubes, they use the same reticles between both scopes.  I have to wonder, it it's just the eye and objective lenses that are proprietary. 
Please don't get me wrong, I love the scopes, just found it odd, with them being two separate, yet owned by the same parent company.

There are a lot of other lenses and components in a scope aside from objective lens and ocular lens.  Depending on the configuration, a scope can comfortably have somewhere between 6 and 15 optical components.  Due to similar configuration, I am not surprised that the reticle itself may be shared.  It is likely made by an outside vendor anyway.  As for the rest of the scope, I would expect most of it to be different.

I thought the Kahles CL line used an etched reticle and Swarovski AV line did not, am I wrong?
