Kaps was founded in 1946 by Karl Kaps in the town of Asslar, located near the famous city of Wetzlar. They produced parts for cinema projectors at first but soon expanded their offer with microscopes and riflescopes. In 1979, they introduced their first surgical microscope, which was a breakthrough for the company. Their microscopes are incredibly popular and world-famous even today – this remains their main area of expertise. Their sports optics offer includes binoculars, riflescopes, and – since 2019 – analog night vision devices. Kaps riflescopes are identical to those which were popular 20 years ago, making them popular among traditionalists. Their devices have always excelled at optical quality. After more than 50 years of operation, Kaps remains a family-owned company. We have been cooperating with them since 2012 as a distributor for Slovenia.
