Nicknamed "The Mountain Hunter" and developed specifically to meet the needs of long-distance shooters, the Swarovski Z5i BT 3.5-18x44 Riflescope comes outfitted with their proprietary elevation Ballistic Turret (BT) that provides a fast way to adjust your zero for up to four different distances with the ability to easily reset to absolute zero. Speaking to the fast reaction time that is the hallmark of the BT turret, it is uncapped for easy and instant access when changing shooting distances in the field. Complementing the turret system is a partially illuminated reticle and a generous 58 MOA elevation adjustment range at 1/4 MOA/click to improve your aiming point and provide you with plenty of adjustment room for distance shooting.

Optically, the scope is built with a wide 3.5-18x zoom magnification range that allows you to take in sweeping views on low power with the ability to dial up the magnification for positive identification and increased confidence in your shot placement. Its moderate 44mm objective is ideal for use in all light conditions to ensure views remain crisp and bright when viewing targets at long range with the magnification turned all the way up without adding excessive weight or bulk to your rifle. Index-matched anti-reflection SWAROTOP lens coatings reduce light loss to just 2% so views are bright and crisp with enhanced clarity and resolution and accurate color rendition. SWARODUR exterior lens coatings protect their surfaces from scratches and abrasions.

Furthering its user-friendly design are ergonomically placed zoom and dioptric correction adjustment collars that are easy to manipulate with precision, even when wearing gloves. A 1" maintube makes it compatible with a wide variety of rings and mounts. The housing is made of a lightweight and durable aluminum alloy that is treated with a scratch-resistant matte black anodized finish. O-rings seal in the inert nitrogen gas that fills the scope, making it waterproof, submersible, and resistant to internal fogging in extreme conditions. Threads on the front lens allow you to install filters, such as neutral density (ND) or polarizing, to improve your vision when you're around water or hunting in the snow.

Stripped to the basics and optimized for long distance, the Z5i is an ideal choice for no-nonsense shooters.

Optical Performance

  • Magnification zoom range and objective lens diameter combination is optimized for use in rough mountainous terrain or long-distance shooting on open plains
  • 3.5-18x magnification is ideal for mid-to long-range use
  • 44mm objective provides the light-gathering ability required for use all light conditions without adding excessive weight or bulk to the rifle so the user remains highly mobile for stalking
  • Versatile zoom range allows users to enjoy a wide field of view on low power to scan a large area then zoom in for proper identification and accurate shots
  • Anti-reflection index-matched SWAROTOP lens coatings are specifically formulated for the glass they are applied to—which minimizes light loss while reducing glare and improving contrast, color rendition, and clarity
  • Scratch-resistant SWARODUR coatings protect exterior lens surfaces
  • 30-foot field of view at 100 yards on 3.5x magnification, 6-foot at 18x power
