Leica Fortis 6 series

The Leica Fortis 6 scopes series was designed to compete with the Swarovski Z6i. The price of Fortis 6 scopes is lower than that of Z6i scopes. The difference in pricing comes down to the fact that Fortis 6 scopes are made in Portugal, where the workforce is a little bit cheaper. The scopes also feature single reticle choice and simpler illumination.

Fortis 6 configuration models:

Optical Properties

Fortis 6-12x50i features the 50-millimeter objective lens and 2-12 magnification range. The field of view is nearly 21 meters at 100 meters, which is comparable to that of the Swarovski Z6. But the light transmission rate is 92%. When you compare Fortis 6 to its competitors, you'll notice that it has a brighter image.

Physical properties

The 2-12x50 scope is very modern, and very well build, and it has a nice finish and unmistakable Leica design. The parallax is fixed at 100 meters, which is normal, and the illumination is powered by a normal CR 2032 battery. Leica uses a Zeiss VM/ZM rail standard for mounting.

The Fortis 6 2-12x50i scope features only one reticle which is located in the second focal plane. It's a typical hunting reticle, which is rather slender and has a tiny dot inside.

The illumination can be controlled to a significant extent, from extremely low-intensity settings for low-light usage and bright daytime operation, with levels ranging from the 7th level onwards. The scope features very simple, efficient, and straightforward illumination mechanism as well as an improved dot that doesn't cover too much area.

The Fortis 6 6-12x50i features multiturn turrets. There is no turn indicator because this is a hunting scope. The clicks are very nice, they produce a crisp sound and you're not able to reset them to zero. The scope can be ordered with BDC turrets.

The elevation range is 14 MIL, and the clicks are 1 centimeter at 100 meters.  Windage is 15 MIL. This is more than enough for a hunting scope, even if you want to shoot farther distances.
