The Kahles 3-12x56mm is as good as or better than anything I have ever used. The #4 illuminated reticle is a Robust etched glass reticle in second image plane does not change size with increased magnification. A decisive advantage at a long distance for the long shot. A digital stageless control for day and night lighting, completely silent with memory function and a red indicator ring to identify activation. Different from standard analogue control units, the innovative CSX digital technology realizes an outstanding battery life of up to more than 500 hours. AMV Coatings - Optimized KAHLES AMV coatings realize nearly loss free transmission in the critical spectral range of light (around 520 nano-meters). In this way, the optical system extracts the very smallest reserves of light for the lowest light shooting conditions. The Multizero function is just icing on the cake. Every hunting rig I own has a Kahles with Multizero. This is a $2,924.97scope and does not have a scratch on it. I mounted it to a Sako using rings that are specifically made to protect the scope. I did some Testing and Evaluating for an article I am writing. Since I received two identical scopes I am keeping one and selling one. Whoever buys this scope can register the warranty in their name. I got this information straight from Kahles. I know the guys at Kahles and they are dedicated to good customer service here in the USA. You do not have to ship the optic overseas for any warranty work but let’s face it you will probably never find this out. These scopes are built to last multiple lifetimes and handed down through the generations. I priced for a quick sale. I have more projects that need attention. $1900.00 $1700.00! Somebody will be getting a GREAT deal.
