The Swarovski Optik Z6i 2-12x50 2nd Generation BT Riflescope (Illuminated 4W-I Reticle) combines a fully multicoated optical path with a weatherproof housing and customizable ballistic turrets to create a dependable and precise targeting instrument. This second generation Z6i scope offers a streamlined form factor and improved functionality compared to its predecessor. The latest Z6i models also have a 30mm main tube that houses extra-low dispersion HD glass elements and transmits the premium image quality synonymous with Swarovski sport optics.
This configuration of the Z6i riflescope features a second focal plane illuminated 4W-I reticle designed for precise wind drift compensation throughout the entire magnification range. Vertical lines in 2 MOA increments along the reticle's horizontal axis enables precise windage correction and shot placement. The reticle illuminator offers two last-used memory functions and 64-level brightness adjustments that allow the shooter to optimize the illumination setting for daylight, twilight and anything in between. In addition to a shooter's base zero, Swarovski's Ballistic Turret (BT) impact point correction system enables a shooter to calibrate three distinct ballistic programs for swift zeroing at different distances. The BT locking mechanism preserves the three user-defined windage/elevation adjustments and prevents accidental movement of either turret.
This 2nd Generation Z6i optic also includes Swarovski's innovative SWAROLIGHT automatic On/Off reticle illumination system. Using a built-in two-axis tilt sensor, the Z6i prolongs battery life by deactivating the reticle illuminator when the rifle is no longer in an upright level firing position; once the weapon is returned to the firing position, the reticle automatically illuminates at the previously-used brightness level.
Complementing the impressive functionality and optical performance of the Z6i riflescope is a weatherproof build quality to match. The nitrogen-filled aluminum alloy housing is engineered to withstand extreme temperatures, intense humidity and driving rain. A generous 3.7" eye relief, deeply grooved magnification ring and spare battery compartment provide the Z6i with additional features that help make it a fine-tuned aiming instrument for close to mid-range targets.
