Swarovski Z6 gen.1 rifle scopes were in production already from 2007 to 2014, and since then, the Z6 gen. 2 is in production. The Swarovski Z6 gen. 2 rifle scopes are the improved versions of gen. 1, and also with some minor esthetical changes. These rifle scopes are one of the top products of the Swarovski Company and in the same time one of the top products among rifle scopes in general. The reticle is set in the second focal plane (by changing the magnification its size remains virtually the same) and is therefore particularly suitable for long-distance shooting since it does not cover a large part of the target.
Optionally also a Ballistic turret can be ordered, that has a locking function and a zero stop for not dialing under the zero adjustment. All Z6 gen. 2 rifle scopes can be ordered also with the Swarovski SR rail mounting solution, which we recommend.
Unlike the Swarovski Z6i gen.2 rifle scopes, they do not have an illuminated reticle but can boast with an exceptional 6 times magnification range and almost unmatched optical properties. The high magnification ratio is not the only thing that is special about the Swarovski Z6 gen.2 riflescopes. They also have an amazing view angle at any magnification and have excellent build quality. For those looking for a versatile hunting rifle scope with no need for an illuminated reticle to hunt at dusk/dawn or on driven hunts, the Swarovski Z6 gen.2 riflescopes are probably the best choice overall.
