The Swarovski Optik 5-25x52 dS P L Digital Riflescope takes all the guesswork out of shooting to greatly improve your accuracy—whether you're shooting from medium to extreme long range.

Packed into a conventional form factor, the scope features a wide zoom range and an oversized objective that allows you to use it for large and small game, in all light conditions, and keeps views bright and clear even when targeting small game at long ranges. It comes with the full complement of optical coatings to maximize light transmission and keep the lenses clear and clean.

Beyond the optical performance you'd expect from a Swarovski riflescope, the dS is packed with a suite of electronics and tools to get you on-target, starting with integrated laser rangefinder and inclinometer. These measure the distance and relative angle from you to your target and, using low-power consumption Bluetooth connectivity, transmits that data to your smartphone running a companion app for iOS or Android devices. The app takes the distance and angle transmitted from the scope and adds information you've entered—such as your rifle and ammunition load, altitude, air pressure, wind speed, and temperature—and calculates an adjusted aiming point, which it transmits back to the scope. With this new aiming point determined, the illuminated aiming point on the reticle is moved to appropriate position. Now, all you need to do is put the dot on your target and squeeze. At no point do you need to manually adjust your turrets, so your rifle remains properly zeroed at all times.

Protecting the optics and electronics is a large 40mm aluminum maintube and housing that is treated with a scratch-resistant anodized finish. The scope is nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and submersible to 13 feet and resistant to internal fogging even in extreme conditions and temperatures. Front objective filter threads allow you to install polarizing or specialty filters to further improve performance, while the included clear lens caps give you another level of protection with the ability to use the scope with them on. The illuminated reticle, rangefinder, inclinometer, and Bluetooth are powered by a single included CR123 battery.

Optical Performance

  • Wide 5-25x zoom range allows scope to be used at medium to extreme long range
  • Large 52mm objective lens draws in copious amounts of light for use in all light conditions, from pre-dawn through dusk, and keeps view bright even when viewing small targets at very long range
  • SWAROTOP internal lens coatings are index matched to the glass to reduce light loss to just 0.2%
  • SWARODUR lens coating protects the external lenses from chemicals such as hand perspiration, condensation, gun oils, and insect repellents while offering scratch resistance
  • SWAROCLEAN external lens coating makes it considerably easier to clean off insect repellents, watermarks, and other residue without leaving streaks
  • Comfortable 3.74" eye relief
  • 9.6-2.1mm exit pupil
  • 21.9-4.5' field of view at 100 yd

Reticle Details

  • Modified 4A-I duplex reticle
  • Designed for accuracy without obstructing view or target, even at long ranges
  • Thick outer posts on horizontal and lower vertical axes draw the eye toward the center
  • Thin hairs in center and upper vertical axes won't obstruct small targets
  • Second focal plane placement maintains the reticle size through the zoom range
  • Red illuminated aiming dot; placement changes based on calculations transmitted from app
  • Illuminated aiming circle around center dot indicates when a measurement has been activated
  • Reticle can be used with illumination turned off, but adjusted aiming point will not be displayed
  • Free subtension dimensions program at SUBTENSIONS.SWAROVSKIOPTIK.COM provides accurate subtensions for all magnifications and different distances

Shot Placement Calculator

  • dS Configurator app for iOS (v8.1 and higher) or Android (v4.4 KitKat or higher) uses a variety of data to calculate precise shot placement for improved accuracy
  • Customizable to specific rifle and ammunition load
  • Utilizes range and angle to target, air pressure, and temperature to determine an adjusted aiming point
  • No manual adjustment to windage or elevation turrets required, aiming point is automatically moved in the field of view
  • Range and angle are automatically transmitted to app
  • Additional data is entered on the dS Configurator app and the calculated ballistic curve is transferred directly to the scope via Bluetooth connectivity
  • Adaptive system adjusts aiming point if magnification is turned up or down

Ranging Capabilities

  • Class 1 eye-safe IR laser
  • Integrated rangefinder accurately ranges distance to target
  • Built-in inclinometer measures upward or downward angle to target up to ±60°
  • 33-1,500 yard metering distance with ±1 yd/m ranging accuracy
  • ≤ 0.7 second measuring time
  • Maximum aiming correction range 1120 yards (1024m)
  • Display distance in yards or meters

Use and Handling

  • Monochrome Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) display shows information clearly without distorting view
  • Selectable 40/60/80 second display time, configurable through the companion app
  • Pitch rifle/scope side-to-side 20° to override and reset the display timer without having to take another measurement
  • 64 brightness levels for use in all light conditions
  • 1/4 MOA impact point correction enables precise zeroing
  • Inset and covered windage and elevation turrets; used primarily for zeroing scope to rifle
  • -3 to +2 diopter allows reticle and in-view display to be perfectly focused
  • Parallax adjustment from 55 yards to infinity
  • Separate brightness + and - control buttons for easy adjustment
  • Single button activates rangefinder function
  • Low battery indicator when an estimated 100 measurements are still possible
  • LED Bluetooth indication light
