"Kahles has long had a great ultra-short, and magnificent long range scopes. Now, Kahles enters the mid-range market with a really great looking Ultra-Short body, very much like the S&B 3-20x, which is one of my all time favorite scopes. The scope is a 3.5-18x50, with a 34 mm tube, so great specs for a mid-range scope. This is (naturally) a FFP scope, and has two choices for reticles, the classic MSR, and the Kahles proprietary SKMR3, which, if you are in the know, is pronounced, "skimmer 3." Both are great reticles"
The K318i from Kahles delivers optical performance unmatched by other scopes with the ultrashort design. The views are sharp throughout the entire magnification spectrum due to its truly masterful engineering. To achieve this great feat, Kahles delved into a long-term commitment to research and develop the latest technologies. The complex lens, system, the special glass, and the innovative etching technology are all results from the in-depth research and development. The K318i offers a wide field of view and high contrast images that set new standards for ultrashort riflescopes.
