Swarovski Optik is one of the most renowned companies in the field of sports optics. The company, headquartered in the region of Tyrol, Austria, opened its doors in 1949. It was established by Wilhelm Swarovski, a man who produced his first binoculars back in 1935. Today, Swarovski boasts a rich tradition in the field of optics. Their products are a synonym for indisputable quality, providing superb optical quality and a meticulously crafted exterior.

About the series

The Z8i series was introduced at IWA 2016 in Germany. Since then, the series has comprised the top-of-the-line Swarovski riflescopes with an 8x zoom factor, 30mm tube and illuminated dot in the centre of the reticle. These riflescopes are built to last, enduring the recoil of even some of the strongest calibers out there. All have the reticle in the second focal plane and boast a 93% light transmission rate. The illumination control is located on the top of the eyepiece. Z8i riflescopes are equipped with the SWAROLIGHT function which automatically powers off the illumination whenever the riflescope is either tilted to the side or pointed upwards/downwards.

About the model (3.5–28x50 P)

Swarovski Z8i 3.5–28x50 P was introduced in 2019. With it, Swarovski filled the gap between the all-round 1.7–13.3x42 and twilight specialist 2.3–18x56. The 3.5–28x50 is a true long-range specialist, ideal for hunting situations where detail recognition is a must-have. This model excels at mountain hunts – on top of offering a maximum 28x magnification the riflescope is incredibly light (665 grams). In the mountains where every gram of surplus matters, the 3.5–28x50 is an indispensable piece of equipment.

The riflescope can be ordered with or without the Swarovski SR rail. There are three reticles to choose from – 4A-I, 4W-I, and BRX-I, all illuminated. It comes with capped turrets as standard which move the point of impact for 0.1 MIL per click (1 cm at 100 m). 3.5–28x50 can be ordered with one or two BTF-turrets (ballistic turret flex). ‘P’ in the name of this riflescope stands for the parallax turret, which provides parallax error correction from 50 meters to infinity. If rotated, the turret slows down at the 100-meter mark. Buyers also have the option of upgrading their 3.5–28x50 with a PBR (personalized ballistic ring) with individually engraved data.

On the exterior of the lenses, the SWAROCLEAN coating is applied. It repels dirt, dust, and water from the lens. The SWAROLIGHT function automatically powers off the illumination if the riflescope is tilted to the side or pointed upwards/downwards.

Swarovski 3.5–28x50 P is manufactured in Austria.
