Swarovski designed and built the Z8i 1.7-13.3x42 P L Riflescope to deliver uncompromising optical performance, precision, and durability. With its high-quality optical system, lens glass, and fully multi-layer anti-reflection coatings, it provides brilliant and sharp images with high resolution. No matter when you hunt, a state of the art optical system will deliver bright, crisp, and clearly visible images with the 42mm objective aperture. The objective and ocular lenses are further enhanced with SWAROCLEAN repellent coating to ensure that water droplets and dirt can be easily removed without a trace. To help with ballistic and wind drift compensation, this scope offers a 54 MOA windage and elevation adjustment ranges with 0.36 MOA click values.
A notable highlight of this riflescope is the 4A-IF illuminated reticle. Its inspired by the German #4 outline is etched on glass in the 2nd focal plane and features three medium posts, a fine crosshair, and an illuminated brilliant center dot. The FLEXCHANGE function allows on-demand switching on and off of the illuminated target circle for added precision. This feature can be engaged using a small lever located on the top portion of the eyepiece. The scope also offers 64 reticle brightness levels for twilight and daylight and SWAROLIGHT inclination-dependent activation and deactivation of the illumination.
Drawing on traditions of engineering excellence and precision manufacturing, this waterproof and fogproof optic was impeccably constructed from high-quality, lightweight, and durable aluminum with a matte black corrosion-resistant anodized finish. Among the many highlights are 30mm single-piece maintube, capped finger-operated turrets, a side parallax corrector, and a precision zoom eyepiece. The windage and elevation gear is also compatible with the optional high-precision ballistic turret flex (BTF). This turret can be used for either windage or elevation and provides extended range of adjustment, precision graduation, and high-traction knurling. The knob can be enhanced with custom graduation and does not require any tools for installation.
