I HAVE GOOD MEMORIES of my last experience with a new Kahles scope. It was one of the company’s new KX 4-12x50s designed for the American market, but so far it hasn’t made it to Australia. This is a shame because it had a one-inch tube and 1/4-minute click adjustments and was reasonably priced for such a high-quality European scope. I mounted it on my Model 70 Winchester .270WSM, took it afield a couple of times and took a couple of deer with it – one at a long range of 350 metres and the other at 150 metres.

The latest Kahles product that I was sent for testing is a another high-quality instrument, a CBX 3-12×56 which features a unique digital, dimmable day & night reticle. This scope has been engineered with CBX illumination to take full advantage of the last hunting
light as well as the brightest daylight conditions.

Like most modernday European variables, the CBX is a big, heavy scope with a length of 355m which will add 567 grams to the weight of your rifle outfit. It’s built on a one-piece 30mm tube with a third turret located on the left side of the saddle is not for parallax adjustment, as might be expected but is a multifunctional control unit which switches the illuminated reticle on and off and changes its intensity. The reticle is located in the first image focal plane where it increases in thickness as the power is raised and grows thinner when it is lowered.

The CSX model which was designed for the American market has the reticle in the second image plane. Since this reticle is non-magnifying, it appears to become increasingly finer as the power is increased.
