Kahles K16i 1-6x24 Details

  • Kahles is the oldest manufacturer of riflescopes still in operation – their products are a synonym for quality.
  • This riflescope delivers unmatched optical performance and advanced reticle options.
  • An excellent choice for 3-Gun and other competitions; can also be used for hunting.
  • K16i is extremely durable and robust – you won’t have problems with recoil damage, no matter the caliber.

About the company

Kahles is the oldest riflescope manufacturer still in operation – the company was founded in 1898 in Austria. They were one of the first to produce riflescopes with variable power, a feat that revolutionized the riflescope industry. Throughout the years, they have focused on riflescope manufacturing – with time, they expanded their offer with binoculars, LRF-binoculars, and red dot sights. Swarovski bought Kahles in 1974 – since then, Kahles Limited GesmbH has been an independent company within the Swarovski group. Kahles and Swarovski nicely complement each other, Swarovski focusing on the hunting and Kahles on the tactical sphere.

About the series

Kahles K is a series of riflescopes split into two categories – tactical shooting and sport shooting (competition, field target). All these riflescopes belong to the premium class, featuring high-quality optics, robust mechanics and lots of advanced features. These can be mounted on any calibre as they handle even the strongest recoil with no consequences. They are available in many different magnification configurations. Many models in this series have a high maximum magnification power, which makes them an excellent choice for long range shooting.

About the model

Kahles K16i 1–6x24 is a wide-angle rifle scope from the K series. It boasts a 6x zoom factor and a 24mm objective lens. It can be used for CQB and many hunting situations, where having a wide field of view and both eyes on the target is important. It is a great companion for a driven hunt – at 1x magnification, it can be used as a substitute for red dots. Many Pro-series 3-gun competitors choose this riflescope because of its excellent performance.

These riflescopes feature a large field of view, a generous eye box, clearest image edge to edge, and a daytime-compatible illumination. Kahles used AMV coatings which prevent the loss of light transmission in the critical spectral range of light (around 520 nm).

The reticle is in the second focal plane, meaning that it appears to be of the same size throughout the magnification span. There are four reticles available – 3GR, G4B, SI1, and SM1 reticle.

The riflescope is constructed of hardened steel and machined to absolute perfection. It is a synonym for durability, accuracy, and repeatability. An integrated magnification throw lever makes setting the desired magnification an easy task, even in the toughest weather conditions.

Kahles K16i is made in Austria.

Main features:

  • SFP configuration
  • 30mm tube
  • 4 reticles to choose from
  • Illuminated reticle
  • Integrated throw lever on the magnification ring
  • Durable and reliable, recoil-proof
  • High-quality fully multi-coated optics
  • Capped turrets
  • Interior purged with Nitrogen


The product comes with 11 years of warranty.

The Best Scope In This Category By
I have now had the Kahles k16i for 6 months and it has proven to be everything it promises and more. I have used it in a .223 ar-15 for 3-gun, bird hunting and varmint hunting. Currently it is sitting on my .30-06 Sako for moose hunting. It has been the perfect choice for all these things. The SM1 reticle is quick and precise at the same time no matter the range is. The glass is crisp and the field of view is huge at 1x with a generous eye relief. It does all this while staying rugger and lightweight. I also own a Leupold vx6 1-6 and I have to say it does not beat the Kahles in any way including quality of glass, eye relief, ruggedness and ease of use.
