I'm glad someone is handling Kahles here in the States again! I've always been a huge Kahles fan!


+1. Kahles deserve to get back in the game.

The 40X is my only lefty. I am quicker with a righty - shooting lefty or righty.

What is your conclusion on FL vs K in low light???



No conclusion yet.  In fading light, both seem quite good.  I will have them in the darkness and sending rounds next weekend, will have more to add.

Nice review, Jeff!

Now, you just need to add a Steiner MT 5-25X56 and a March FX Tac 5-40X56 to complete your 34mm Grand Slam!
It was between the Kahles and the Steiner, Steiner wasn't available and I had heard great things on the Kahles (and nothing on the Steiner.)  As a shooter that has had little success with 20X optics, I was wary of anything greater than 15X (entirely personal preference) but have been very pleased with the Kahles.

The Steiner might be in my future, depends on many variables, not least of which is scope availability.  And I need a tank to put under it, it is heavier than anything I already own, and the Premier is a beast, hard to imagine heavier - or the need for it.

You've got a helluva nice stable of tactical scopes already; that's for sure, Jeff! I'm pretty sure my parents paid much less for the house I was raised in than the $ value represented in the above pics!

I'm somewhat curious why the Kahles 3-12 doesn't use the same parallax adjustment. That's a nice feature. Only somewhat, because I'm done for the time being with higher mag scopes and heavier tactical scopes. The SS 1-6 I have on order @ 22 oz. is about the limit. I don't know if it's going to have target turrets, but the 3-10x50 KSX I @ 17 oz. that Charlie mentioned in his 312 review thread sounds very interesting.

Well, it really helped when he switched over to this. It's less to insure and other motorists just know to give him a wide berth:

Excuse my original screw up, couldn't find the edit button.

Lots of good information in the review.  I could not find some information on the Kahles website, maybe I missed this information somehow.

Regarding the Kahles:
> Is there a zero stop?
> How many mils/turn on the elevation?

Thanks!

Krazelegs,

There is a zero stop.
There are 14 mils per revolution.

It is an exceptional scope.

Will see hard use next weekend. And there will be pictures.

There will be no bench.
There will be no protection from the mud and rain and cold.
It will be called upon to make shots at various ranges and probably in rapid succession.
Turrets will be spun. Allot.


It will not be national security.

By our standards up here in El Norte, if there is mud and rain it ain't cold.
