Swarovski Z5 riflescopes offer a very interesting combination of a 5 times ratio between the lowest and the highest magnification in very compact 1 inch (25.4mm) housing. As a result the Swarovski Z5 riflescopes are a much smaller and lighter products than its comparable competition, and especially useful for long-distance hunting. The reticle is set in the second focal plane and therefore does not cover much of the target when shooting over greater distances. The Swarovski Z5 also offer an optional ballistic turret which enables the reticle to be set for targets at three different distances. Due to the use of aluminum material and despite the high magnification and lens diameter they remain lightweight and will not be a heavy burden on the rifle. The optical quality, robustness and quality of construction is at a level that is fitting for Swarovski Z5 products.
All Swarovski Z5 models are non-illuminated, and made in the USA. The BT mark indicates the Ballistic Turret that makes it easy to adjust the reticle on three pre-defined distances and thus take into account bullet trajectory.
The Swarovski Z5 rifle scopes can be mounted with 1 inch rings, and they mostly fit on older 1 inch mounts.
