    overall a very good scope and on par with Swarovski etc. expect to pay about 500 for a good one.

    as a product the kahles are excellent glass.
    Since seeing the scopes firsthand a couple of weeks ago .im going to try and push these top quality optics along with the nightforce and zeiss.

    i may well be replacing my nightforce nxs with a kahles .

    A more important question (lol) is how the hell do you pronounce it?
    I have heard loads of variations, ''Car lez'' ''Kales'' ''kaylez''....and more.

    ​Which is correct?

    It's "ka luss", with a short "a" in the "ka", like a Yorkshire bath or glass. Not to be confused with Kahless the Unforgettable, legendary founder of the Klingon Empire: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kahless

    I have Kahles on both my guns, one US and the other from Tain. Spent ages looking through different glass in Bass Pro shop, all the names. It came down to 2 Swarovski or Kahles. In the end I went with what my eyes told me and bought Kahles. At that time I had never heard of them. Not regretted it.
