Yea, so badass that I convinced myself a crap image was very good, till I had to use said crap image in the real world.

I'm sure Kahles are much better now than the gen1 and gen2 K624i line.  That said, I sunk lots of cash into something that was sub-par, and the company refused to do much of anything to address it - other than sell me a new scope.

Too many great choices to spend more time and money on Kahles.  I still don't buy Leupold, after about 20 years, for this same reason.  

I'll pay lots of quality and service, and won't pay diddly if you consistently - maybe even "occasionally" - fall down on either.

I completely understand RC's position.  He bought a gen 1 and paid good money for it.  Then Kahles comes out with gen 2, which hurts the value of the gen 1 scopes.  RC buys a gen 2.  The Kahles comes out with gen 3 which kills the value of the gen 1 scopes and reduces the value of the gen 2 scopes.

We would be better served if the manufacturers would get the bugs worked out of a product before they go to market with it.

In Kahles’ defense, they took my gen1 in house and said it was bad enough to replace, for a non-insignificant amount of money paid by me.

They asked that I not widely distribute that information, as everyone with a gen1 would try to do the same. I always thought if it’s bad enough to say “it needs replacing”, why am I paying for its replacement.

The whole thing was not agreeable to me, which is why I am now a huge Vortex fan.

Isn’t that what Glock does, nobody seems to care about that.😂
