[SHOT 2021] New Kahles Riflescope – K525i Dynamic Long Range

    With 120 years of experience in the development and production of riflescopes for hunting and sports shooting Kahles have a lot of tradition and experience within their company. Their line of K525i 5-25x56i riflescopes now has another star where the focus is dynamic long range competitions.

    The name is K525i Dynamic Long Range (DLR) with features including a 34mm tube, an extra wide field of view, 100 clicks per rotation with reliable tracking and clearly defined clicks, extra-large turret lettering for easy and fast reading. You can also add an extra-long throw lever & parallax spinner for quick adjustments.

    Below you can find what Kahles Optics have to say:

    K525i – 5-25x56i DLR (Dynamic Long Range)

    The K 525i combines maximum optical performance and precision with unique handling and ergonomics. The new DLR model was optimised for the high requirements that the speed at Dynamic Long Range competitions brings, while additionally being equipped with an extra wide field of view, easy readable clicks, extra-long throw lever, and a parallax spinner.
    The central array of the parallax wheel is only available at and patented by KAHLES, which allows for ergonomically optimal and extremely quick – both right- and left-handed – operation of the adjustment options for side elevation and parallax correction. The important click indicators on the turrets were enlarged even more on this K525i model and are now easier to read and operate from the shooting positions in DLR disciplines and their fast time laps.
    The TWIST GUARD anti-twist safeguard that was established and patented in the meantime reliably prevents accidental adjustment of the windage turret with its freely rotating covering cap. It allows for fast, unobstructed operation by the shooter, without time-consuming “locking” or “unlocking”. The supplied extra-long throw lever and the parallax spinner ensure for an even faster and more intuitive adjustment of magnification and parallax.
    The K525i DLR is furthermore equipped with the newly developed illuminated reticle SKMR4 on the first focal plane, specifically developed for the dynamic requirements of competitions, such as PRS.
    With the K525i DLR, the shooter can concentrate on the essentials in a competition and hit the target even faster.

    As anyone into optics know, a great riflescope can be destroyed by a poor reticle. That doesn’t seem to be the case here. The K525i DLR has an  illuminated SKMR4 reticle in 1st focal plane

    The K525i DLR will be available in stores starting March 2021 for a retail price of €3.550 in Europe.
