The Schmidt Bender 3-12x50 Klassik LM L3 Black Riflescope 644-811-482-05-05A91 is great scope for the money.  There are two varieties that come either from the German factory (Biebertal-Fellingshausen) with the Schmidt Bender 3-12x50 Klassik LM L3 ASV H Black Riflescope 644-811-482-40-05A02 or the Hungarian (Budapest) factory addressed this description.  The review here addresses the Hungarian version (not clear if the findings below apply to the German version) which has since been discontinued with new old stock still in circulation and the German version still able to be ordered as of this writing. As this is a hunting, not a tactical scope, many website descriptions for the Klassik line scopes leave out the elevation/windage mil/mrad adjustment range which is 0.1 mil/mrad per click and has 32 clicks of 0.1 mil/mrad which equals one full rotation of the elevation dial (it is not a turret, but a very shallow adjustment dial that is capped). Therefore, one full rotation from center gives 3.2 mils of elevation adjustment. The full range as tested on this scope is a total of 56 clicks from factory center in either up/down or left/right directions or 5.6 mils of elevation/windage adjustment in either up/down or left/right directions (112 clicks of 0.1 mil from top to bottom of the elevation range or left to right of the windage range).  That is, it does not quite make two full rotations on the either the elevation or windage dial (would need 64 clicks at 32 clicks of 0.1mil per full dial rotation), but almost does, and is verifiably repeatable by counting clicks, which are pronounced and crisp.   So if one were to use a MIL/MOA adjusted elevation scope mount/ring setup, you could get the full range of 11.2mils of elevation use (5.6mil x 2 ranges above and below center line = 11.2mil). That is, a 6-mil (or 20.61MOA) scope mount/ring set-up with the elevation adjusted for full range of use would leave you with 0.40 mils of native elevation above factory center with this scope.  A 20MOA (or 5.82mil/mrad) scope mount/ring set-up would leave you with 0.22mils of native elevation above factory center on this scope. Tests to see how much elevation/windage is limited with full deflection of the windage/elevation dial were not conducted and are not known. Strangely, the included manual from Schmidt & Bender does not indicate these ranges anywhere in the documentation nor on their website. Calls to Schmidt and Bender customer service (Winchester, VA) has indicated that there are no turret change/upgrade options offered for their Klassik hunting line. Reticles can only be swapped for what is already offered, not upgraded to any of the PM line reticles.
