Highlights

The innovative 6x zoom from Swarovski Optik offers a unique range of magnification and field of view. This gives rise to greater flexibility when stalking without compromising either image quality or design. The increased eye relief also ensures a higher level of safety.

What are the advantages of 6x Zoom?
Zoom describes the adjustable magnification range in optical instruments. The larger the zoom factor, the greater this range. The lowest magnification is characterized by a large field of view whilst the highest magnification enables razor-sharp identification of the target. With 6x zoom you will profit from both to the maximum extent possible for zoom riflescopes: maximum field of view and maximum accuracy of details.

Optics:
The innovative lens design provides the largest range of magnification. The lowest magnification stands out for its wide field of view, while the highest magnification enables an identification of the target object in true detail.
Sophisticated, high light-transmission optical system for large field of view with optimum edge-to-edge sharpness and steady reticle position.
Re-reducing coating: Swarotop
Microstructure grooves for precisely defined ribbing prevent residual reflections inside the tube for bright, high-contrast images, even in intense light.

Reticle:
Centered reticle in the second image plane. The target observed is magnified whilst the size of the reticle remains the same.
Quadratic range of adjustment for full range of elevation/windage even in marginal areas of the adjustment range.
Various reticles possible
Robustness:
Rugged light alloy main tube - 30mm
Patented Swarovski Optik 4-point coil spring system for excellent marksmanship - shot for shot
Highly accurate adjustment of sighting lines and certainty of shot even with large calibers.
Zero setting system for precision adjustments of the point of impact without the use of tools.
Waterproof to a depth of up to 13 feet
No fogging due to nitrogen filling
