The New Kahles K525i Ultra-Premium Tactical Scope

With the Kahles name instantly bringing the thought of incredibly clear glass, quality, and well-thought-out features to mind, it's no surprise that the new Kahles K525i has me drooling like a '90s teenager who just got the new JC Penny catalog.

The Kahles K525i adds one more option to the growing list of precision riflescopes that are jaw-dropping (for an optics nerd) and it includes all of the features you would expect from the high-end Austrian optics company that made its name by pioneering the riflescope as we know it today– as well as the first to offer a waterproof riflescope in 1960.

Building on the successful K318i riflescope, the new flagship K525i is described by Kahles as “the perfect package for the highest demands.” With a very useable 5-25x power magnification range and a large 56mm objective lens, the K525i is no doubt going to be a contender even though it is going to carry a rather lofty MSRP of €3,300 (or $4055.03 in freedom dollars).

I wouldn't be dissuaded by the MSRP, retailers like EuroOptic.com are already taking pre-orders at $3,299.00 putting it directly in competition with many Leupold, Nightforce, Schmidt & Bender, and other high-end optics built on either side of the pond.

Specs from Kahles' Press Release:

The company also said the scope will be offered in right and left-handed versions that have the “Twist Guard” windage knobs on either the right or left side of the scope and Kahles' signature parallax wheel integrated into the elevation turret.
