Kahles is known for making high-performance long range optics so they’re not top of mind for MilSpec tactical scopes like LPVOs. But for competition 3gun shooters who are looking eek out every last fraction of a second in their run times, having clear sharp glass is a necessity.

Kahles showed off their K181 LPVO at Shot Show 2024 which offers red dot bright illumination. It comes in either a traditional BDC crosshair style retile or a simple two-dot aiming reticle; the ultimate in simplicity for a speed shooter interested in hiting either point-blank or mid-range targets.
