The Swarovski Z8i 0.75-6x20 riflescope is an excellent choice for those looking for a high-quality scope that can be used for close-range shooting.
It offers a wide field of view and stunning optics, perfect for driven hunts.
The Z8i 0.75-6x20 scope is best suited for close-range use, e.g. 20 meters away or closer. It is becoming popular in driven hunts and CQB applications, and with IPSC shooters as well.
There are only two minor drawbacks to this scope: its turrets are made of plastic, and the BTF turret could have been made of a sturdier material. However, these don’t detract from its overall performance or quality in any significant way.
Its optics and field of view are superb and its price is reasonable when compared to other scopes on the market.
The Swarovski Z8i rifle scopes are top-of-the-line and perfect for hunters, offering an 8x zoom range, a high light transmission rate, and a second focal plane reticle. Additionally, the illumination system can be adjusted to any need, and the Swarolight function automatically turns off the scope when not in use. These scopes also have a wide view angle at any magnification.
The Z8i series includes the following models: Swarovski Z8i 1-8x24, Swarovski Z8i 0.75-6x20, Swarovski Z8i 1.7-13.3x42, Swarovski Z8i 2-16x50, Swarovski Z8i 2.3-18x56 and Swarovski Z8i 3.5-28x50.
The Swarovski Z8i 0.75-6x20 riflescope is impressive for its wide field of view of 56 meters at 100 magnification, compared to the 40 or 43 meters offered by other scopes. It has an eye relief of 90 millimeters and offers up to 6x magnification. The optical quality is good, with edge and central sharpness even better than that offered by the 1-8 model before it.
The Z8i 0.75-6x20 riflescope is shorter and lighter than its 1-8x24 model, measuring 28 cm in length and weighing 500 grams. It is waterproof and shockproof for any caliber and filled with nitrogen for fog-proofness, so it will not get fogged in cold conditions. The Z8i riflescope has a fixed parallax which is set at 100 meters.
The Z8i 0.75-6x20 riflescope has a second focal plane reticle which remains the same size regardless of magnification. It is available with two different reticles; 4A-IF, featuring an illuminated dot in the center, and D-I, consisting of a single red dot in the middle. Both are brightly illuminated for use in broad daylight.
The Swarovski Z8i 0.75-6x20 has an updated illumination system compared to its predecessor, featuring two positions - low light and daytime - and plus/minus buttons to fine-tune the brightness. It also includes an automatic turn-off feature that detects the scope's position to conserve battery power. The illumination system can be adjusted to any level of light so it can be used in both dim and bright conditions.
The Swarovski Z8i and Z6i 0.75-6x20 have improved, elegant plastic turrets with a better feel and sound when clicked than the previous top-of-the-line Z6i. The windage turrets of the Z8i come with an extra battery in case the illumination system runs out of power. Each click on the turrets equals 1 centimeter at 100 meters and they are resettable.
The Swarovski Z8i 0.75-6x20 scope is designed with an optional ballistic elevation and/or windage turret, allowing for up to 70 clicks in one revolution which adjusts the point of impact by 1 centimeter at 100 meters away. The BTF turret can be placed on either the top elevation or side windage turret.
You can order the Swarovski Z8i 0.75-6x20 with a Swarovski SR rail or with the 30-millimeter tube.
The Swarovski Z8i 0.75-6x20 scope comes with a 10-year warranty and is made in Austria.
