Scopes - Kahles:

How about some info on a Kahles Zf95? is this scope of equal or greater quality than the Leupold Mark IV M3? are there any drawbacks to this scope?

Rich - I have used the Zf95 and do not like it. The ones we have are too low in power and the quality of glass seems to be lower than the Leupold, S&B, or anyother quality scope. That may be just the ones we have, check with some more people and look through the glass yourself. Check it at twilight as that is when the glass really shows it's problems! (and when Leupold really shines!! On a clear night I have shot until past midnight with a M3A and NO artifical light. You could read the 1000 yard number boards!).

Ding - See above and that is why I don't know why you are trying to trade for a B&L Tactical! What a waste of energy! Email me and tell me why, though I suspect why, you want to trade.

About scopes. I have used Leupold, B&L, Tasco and Kahles. I like the B&L and Leupold the best. I had trouble with not enough light gathering with the Khales. It was so dark with a Kill Flash on that I had trouble in daylight with it. Not a problem with Leupold or B&L. The Tasco was better than the Khales but not as clear as the better two.

I still have a problem with tring to instintly incapacitate someone with a mouse gun. Entry with a M16 but not a sniper shot. Glass and other things are in the way and such. Lets face it energy is nice. I hunt deer with a .308 or above and they weigh less than most bad guys.

Gooch what do you think.
