The 1.5-6x42 model Konig is slightly different from the other Konig scopes in that it has a 30mm body instead of 1 inch. Check out our explanation of differences between 1 inch and 30mm scope tubes for more explanation. Other than that difference, the 1.5-6x42 has the same features as the rest of the Konig scopes such as a 1 piece anodized aluminum body, illuminated reticle with 11 brightness settings, and an impressive build quality overall.
This particular model includes a set of 30mm rings. They aren't branded, but they do have six screws each and appear to be the same anodized aluminum as the scope itself. Build quality is standard for the Konig scopes we've seen so far, with tight and precise adjustment knobs, and magnification and focus rings that could be best described as tight and precise. This scope also has a type of zero stop feature that allows the shooter to zero the scope, loosen a set screw, reset the adjustment knobs to zero, and retighten the set screw. This allows the shooter to adjust for distance and reset to zero effortlessly.
The illumination on the Konig 1.5-6x42 is a step above that of the Trueview scopes, and the brightest setting on the illumination dial is usable by shooters who find themselves in the dark. The reticle itself is a 4A type with an illuminated center dot, though Bresser does not name the reticles in its scopes at the time of this review.
Glass quality is a notch or two above the Trueview scopes we have reviewed, and is extremely clear. Chromatic aberration is only visible if you're looking for it - in situations where it can be seen, most shooters won't even notice.
One thing that manufacturers can't seem to understand is that when you try to fit decent glass, illuminated reticles, and waterproofing/fogproofing into a scope at this price, all three usually suffer. It seems that Bresser took this all into consideration, because all aspects of the Konig 1.5-6x42 hold up to our scrutiny, and we're comfortable recommending it to our customers. If you're a hunter or a semi-regular competitive shooter, this scope should be on your list of possibilities.
Bresser Trueview Konig riflescopes are premium optics with features you'd expect from a scope with triple the price tag. Each Trueview Konig scope includes a body made of one piece aluminum, fully multi-coated optics, hard anodized finish for durability, and variable brightness illuminated dot reticle.
