Swarovski’s latest offering: the Z8i riflescope

Swarovski’s latest offering, the new Z8i riflescope, will be on sale in Australia towards the end of June. We take at look at the advantages it could provide.

With perseverance, expertise, and vision, Swarovski Optik has succeeded in integrating a proper 8x zoom into a slim, elegant 30-mm (1.2-in) central tube, creating an impressive combination of strength and beauty.

8x zoom second to none and crystal-clear optics

The Z8i rifle scope completely redefines performance with its 8x zoom and outstanding optics. The 8x zoom combines a large field of view with a high level of detail accuracy. Combined with masterfully crafted optics, the new rifle scope, offering optimum detail recognition, is impressive with its high magnification, uncompromising image definition across the whole field of view, and exceptional viewing comfort facilitating rapid target acquisition.

Perfectly designed: New standards in terms of design and ergonomics

Clear lines, a slim central tube, and a compact design. It was only the many years of effort spent on development that made it possible to implement the 8x zoom in a slim 30-mm (1.2-in) central tube that blends with any hunting firearm in terms of design and weight. The perfectly ergonomic illumination unit and large operating features make it quick and reliable to handle.

Unlimited versatility: FLEXCHANGE, the first switchable reticle 4A-IF

The Z8i is a rifle scope to suit every hunting scenario. The combination of the easily attachable ballistic turret flex, powerful 8x zoom, and the first switchable reticle makes it extremely versatile. One particular new feature is the FLEXCHANGE reticle. The new 4A-IF reticle was specially developed for driven hunting, and has an illuminated ring that can be switched on and off with the press of a button. You can then adapt the reticles exactly to the hunting situation ahead and achieve greater flexibility when facing any hunting challenge. 

One turret, for every eventuality

The ballistic turret flex (BTF) can be configured separately using three different types of rings, and be attached with a single click. It can be used as a top or side turret, and can be combined with all the available reticles. This makes it possible always to stay on target at the desired distances. If it is used as a top turret, it can compensate for bullet drop, and when used as a side turret, for windage adjustment or estimating the lead distance. A lock mechanism also prevents it from being turned inadvertently. The Z8i’s parallax turret allows you to set a parallax-free image, which can be quickly adjusted even when in a shooting position. The catch at the 100 m (100 yd) mark allows you to set the parallax turret easily and reliably even at twilight.

Customized special accessory: the personalized ballistic ring (PBR)

As an optional accessory for the BTF, the personalized ballistic ring (PBR) offers maximum scope for personal adjustment to all the relevant hunting distances. It is individually engraved based on your personal data input into the SWAROVSKI OPTIK ballistic program, adapted to the ammunition selected.

Four Z8i models for different hunting priorities

The¬†Z8i 1-8×24¬†(available with the optional 4A-IF FLEXCHANGE reticle) is the powerful experts‚Äô rifle scope suited to driven hunting. It impresses with its exceptional field of view, which is important for maintaining an overview in rapidly changing situations and making the right decision.

The¬†Z8i 1.7-13.3×42 P¬†(available with the optional 4A-IF FLEXCHANGE reticle), a versatile rifle scope suited to driven hunting and stalking, combines a remarkable field of view for driven hunting with a lightweight design, making it also ideal for mountain hunting.
