Kahles, an Austrian company, was founded in 1898. They are the oldest riflescope manufacturer still in operation. Throughout the years, Kahles came up with many innovative solutions which left a mark in the sports optics industry. They were the first to launch a nitrogen-filled riflescope and among the first to manufacture a variable magnification riflescope. In 1972, the company was sold to Swarovski but has remained an independent company within the Swarovski group. Swarovski and Kahles nicely complement each other, the former focusing on the hunting and the latter on the sports shooting and tactical sphere. Kahles manufactures most of its products in Austria but cooperates with some factories in Asia as well. In 2018, they underwent a complete makeover, changing their logotype and swapping the blue colour that they were known for with orange. Lately, they have expanded their offer with red dot sights and laser rangefinding binoculars. We have been selling Kahles products in our store since 2012.
