    Are Khales 8x50 scopes any good?

    Hi chaps,
    Are older Khales scopes any good? I've been offered an older 8x50 with 30/30 reticule in decent condition as a swap for my NV scope but have no experience of them or even looked through one before. Are they on a par with the Meopta 7x50 or better optically?

    Cheers

    Stratts,

    If the value to you us right........
    You can always get it refurbished by Khales (part of Swarovski now) and it will be like new.
    A classic scope that will look good on the old crap, I mean classic, rifles you shoot

    Stratts -- Kahles are very well built scopes with superb optics & good trracking / return to zero etc - as long as it isn't wrecked / scratched it will serve you well. If necessary these old scopes can be refurbished either by the makers or one of the excellent UK repair people like Paul Burke. So depending on condition it may be a fair swap. Then you'll have class glass on the classy bang stick!

    I have a 4x32 Kahles helia and it is a lovely bit of glass.

    very good scopes,

    had 2 over the years when I was flush, sold one on here and I think the bloke still has it, the other is sat on a good buddies rifle to this day,

    they are better IMO than meopta and out class leupold and on a par with swaros, I have only used a couple of S&B over the years but think they are ok but not for me,

    grab it or tell me and ill grab it

    I have an 8x50 IR Kahles here. Call in and you can have a look through it. Very clear and as good as anything available.

    I've got a Newish Khales and it's on par with Swarovski, you will not go wrong.
