Default New Kahles 10-50X Competition Scope

Shot show showing another entry into the big mag, big objective arena. 56mm this time.

However it remains to be seen if it comes down close enough for airgun ranges. The 6-24 this seems based upon is spec'd to parallax to 50m+...

The parallax wheel on the top turret is a novel solution for selling wider gun boxes if you want a wider wheel.

The 50-100m markings are about a 12th of a wheel's rotation, so it could have some legs on it, if it can be parallaxed down.

It's also 1st focal plane, which isn't my personal preference, and heavy, at just under a 1kg.

Khales aint cheap, and regarded well optically. I wonder what their response will be to pricing and re-parallaxing. Being based in Austria I wonder if they'd be tempted for a trip to Ebern to see what scopes can be used for.
