I purchased a Kahles 4-12X52 CL Helia from the SWFA sample list.  It arrived today.  The box is a little battered.  I suspect the scope was in a display case and the box was making out as best it could in some storage cabinet.  The Scope however is perfect. The the knobs show zero wear, the adustments screws beneath them are apparently unused, the body tube is perfect and unmarked.  It arrived with lens caps, the owners manual and lifetime warrently paperwork. 

The glass is wonderful.  I checked the focus and it works as intended.  I'm delighted with it.  I've ordered a set of medium Talley rings, which should be here in a few days, and I'll get it mounted.  I'm very anxiouis to try it out.   I'll admit I was a little leary of the SWFA "used" scope thing, wondering just how good it would be.  It's really good!  Thanks SWFA.

Make sure you read through the manual, the CL can be alittle confusing at first.

Thats interesting about the warranty. I called before ordering mine and asked specifically about warranty and registrations cards being in the boxes. I was told they were not and that all Kahles samplelist scopes came with 3 year warranties. I have since read 2 years on this forum. My scope was exactly as you described yours, worn box, scope looked brand new.
