Key Features
  • 30mm Main Tube
  • Illuminated 4A-I Reticle
  • Ballistic Turret
  • Parallax Side Turret
The 1.7-10x42 Z6i 2nd Generation Riflescope (Matte Black) from Swarovski Optik comes with an Illuminated 4A-I Reticle in the 2nd focal plane as well as a Ballistic Turret. The close to perfect Z6i has been re-engineered into the Z6i 2nd Generation - possibly reaching optical perfection. As if the Ballistic and Parallax turrets of the Z6i weren't already close enough to being mechanically flawless, the 2nd Generation Z6i's handling has been optimized even more. Swarolight technology has been added as well, providing automatic on-off reticle illumination for an extended battery life.

The 1.7-10x42 Z6i scope has a smooth aluminum tube that accommodates ring mounting. It is rugged and dependable with a nitrogen filled tube for fogproofing and water proof to over 13 feet. A low magnification of 1.7x is appreciated by hunters attempting to gain positive target acquisition on fast moving game. Quickly dial up to the 10x high magnification for a longer shot. From the ocular to the objective, inside and out, this scope is a world class performer that will get you on target quickly and accurately.

This Z6i has a 4A-I in the second focal plane so that the reticle size stays constant even though the target size increases with the zoom magnification. It has a 30mm tube and a matte black finish. An especially accurate and customizable feature is the addition of the Ballistic Turret (BT) to this riflescope. The BT allows repeatable, long range accuracy and user defined distance settings.

Impeccable craftsmanship, optical genius, rugged dependability, and repeatable accuracy have all been engineered into the design and construction of this fine sighting optic to ensure a lifetime of successful hunting.

To use a riflescope with your firearm, you'll need a mounting base and mounting rings in addition to the scope itself. Bases attach to your firearm and the rings attach your scope to the base. Proper spacing of the rings, as well as the ring height should be considered to ensure a proper line of sight can be established. This will maximize the value of your investment, and enhance your shooting experience. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.

question

What is the recommended rings and base for a Z6 2-12 30 mm tube ?
Asked by: Anonymous
For the Swarovski 2.5-15x56 P L Z6i which is a beautiful scope. I would have two suggestions for you. Considering it has a 56mm objective I would recommend the Vortex Precision Matched Rings 30mm High. Another set you may want to take into consideration is the Leupold STD Rings - 30mm Tube that are Super High once again giving you a bit of room for that 56mm objective. Without knowing what mounting system you are using I picked two different systems.

question

Is this scope manufacturer in Austria or is it assembled in the United States ?
Asked by: Michael M.
Hi Michael - all of the Swarovski Optik illuminated rifle scopes are manufactured and assembled in our factory in Austria. Specifically, in the town of Absam, which is near Innsbruck in the Austrian state of Tyrol.Here in the US at our Repair and Assembly facility in Rhode Island, we do assemble the 1-inch main tube Z3 and Z5 rifle scopes from components shipped here. Since the majority of 1-inch rifle scopes are sold here in the US, it is more cost-efficient that way and frees up manufacturing capacity back in Absam.
