The Hensoldt 3-12x56 FF has excellent glass and I understand it is easy to get behind - has a forgiving eyebox. This has a clean basic Mil-dot reticle. What about the much more modern Kahles K318i with a MSR or SKMR3 reticle. I have not looked at either scopes. I have owned Hensoldt items in the past. Yes, the Hensoldt has no practical service option in the USA.

What about the S&B 5-20 Ultra-short or a S&B 3-12x50 PM II, with a P4F ?



Will mount on a HK MR 762. Not a rig to roll around in the dirt. It's a heavy thing.

Looking for good FOV.

If you want FOV you won’t get it with the 318i.
Although I think its the best ultra short that I’ve tried (have not tried ZCO) if you’re happy with the reticles in the S&B and want a bit more FOV, then the 5-20 US would be my second choice and it doesn’t have the heavy CA that the new Kahles scopes have when you’re eye is off centre either.

If you want a scope in that mag range with a great eyebox good FOV and it being serviced in the USA I'd also look at Zero Compromise Optics ZC 420 4-20x50
