    KAHLES 8X56 s/h Price

    I am not selling yet but was wondering what I should ask for this scope if I decide to sell. It is in very good condition slight scratch on tube, glass is mint comes with transparent bikini covers which are a little scuffed and all paperwork and box. I was thinking 600-650.....TOO HIGH.....TOO LOW, i HAVE NO IDEA??

    Cant be 100% I bought it from someone who bought it new. He had it about 5 years if I remember correctly, I have had it a year and I have no idea what I paid, haha

    I have a Kahles 8x50 illuminated reticule that is the same age as your scope. I paid 630 for it brand new. Kahles optics are as good as anything one can buy, which is possibly why Swarovski took them over.
    I recently bought a Swarovski 6x42 for 225 unboxed and with one minor scratch on the tube. I appreciate that neither of my scopes are a direct comparison with yours but offer an indication. I would estimate 350 as a realistic selling price in the current market for fixed power scopes. I would keep it as you cannot buy better optics regardless of the price tag.

    I have a Khales Helica 8x56, only paid 300 for it 2nd hand and it was in excellent condition, I think that i got a bloody good deal as i doubt i'd be losing any money on it now. As said above, the glass is as good as the other 'big 3' so unless your desperate, i would be wanting 350-400 to start with.
