The Swarovski Z8i 1-8x24 offers an incredible 8x magnification that allows this scope to be utilized in almost any circumstance that may arise. This line of Swarovski scopes will push the bonds of scope technology like never before. It has incredible clarity and 93% light transmission that can only truly be understood by looking through one. This is made possible with the highest imaginable glass quality and Swarovski’s state of the art coatings. The slim 30mm tube size is not overly cumbersome and gives this scope a very elegant look upon the rifle that it is mated with. It also features the optional BTF or ballistic turret flex for both elevation and windage adjustments, which can be installed without the need for extra tools. The 1-8x magnification on this scope lends well to a variety of situations that include the driving hunt. In this particular circumstance speed and low magnification are needed to hit game that may spot you before you spot them. However you must also be wary of game that is farther away. This creates a particular challenge for hunters, but not any longer as the 1-8x Z8i is perfectly suited to both situations with a quick turn of the throw lever.

Swarovski Z8i riflescopes offer the latest in user flexibility with their large 8x zoom range and the latest in features. These innovations include:

  • Slim 30mm main tube with impressive 8x zoom
  • Parallax adjustment knob with catch at 100m mark allows swift and reliable parallax adjustments, even in low-light situations (No parallax adjustment on 1-6x or 1-8x models)
  • SWAROLIGHT illumination with compact illumination controls, 64 levels of intensity, memory function, and auto-switch-off battery conservation. The automatic switch features a tilt sensor which detects whether the rifle is in a shooting position and turns the illumination off if the scope is not, saving battery and extending service life
  • Optional BTF (Ballistic Turret Flex) allows for 3 methods of elevation correction, easy windage adjustment, and tool-less installation
  • Extremely high 93% light transmission

Glass quality is nothing short of amazing. The fast focus eyepiece has a reference mark on it, which is a very nice detail. I don't like locking eyepieces as I find that my focus changes depending if I'm wearing contacts or eyeglasses. The threads for the focus adjustment seem to be the perfect pitch too. It adjusts very quickly. This is something I hated about the NF 2.5-10x24 this scope replaced. The diopter adjustment was very finely threaded, and required many turns. The ocular lens on the Z8i is very large. This gives the user a wide open viewing experience that is very easy to get behind. The scope is very user friendly in this regard. Pointing and finding the reticle is very intuitive. Scope is very lightweight, and doesn't have the unnecessarily heavy or bulky 34mm tube of some scopes in this genre. The capped turret clicks are firm and tacticle and have an adjustable zero reference which I find beneficial for compensating for different ammo or adding a suppressor. The power ring is smooth and quick to adjust. I didn't opt for the throw level. The built in extended nub does it for me so far. Reticle illumination controls are good. I wish the buttons had a bit more travel or maybe a more tacticle sensation when they are depressed. This is really my only dislike. The on/off control is brilliant with its day/night settings. Very good range to the illumination as well. Very usable in low light all the way up to thermonuclear bright. When off, it appears as if the center of the reticle is slightly open with a very faint grey color present. This slightly open reticle center, which is .1 MIL corresponding with the dot size, is actually an unexpected help when shooting for groups off of a bench. You can play with your zero range in the Swarovski app to make the hold overs make sense for your rifle and ammo. For example, with 77gr M262 zeroed at 50/194ish yards, the drops of the BRT are 308, 403, 485, 558 and 622 yards. The app will even tell you to zero 1.4" high at 100 yards. I've owned quite a few scopes and different optic setups. Brands including S&B, Trijicon, NIghtforce, Aimpoint, Eotech and just about everything you'd expect to see on an AR15. This is bay far the most impressive scope I've owned. Going from a NF 2.5-10x24 with an offset MRDS to this, I feel like I'm giving nothing up on the high end due to the very impressive optical quality, and only gaining on the low end due to the Z8i's very impressive 1x feel. The NF setup with a Larue mount and RM06 was 26.1oz. This scope in the same mount less the MRDS is 25.1oz. Gains about 2" in overall length, but it isn't noticed. The Z8i isn't cheap, but well worth the cost.

I spent several months doing research on which optic to buy to replace the 1.8 IOR optic I had on my SCAR 17S. The IOR died (Long story with no customer service - do not buy these scopes). I considered the Elcan 1x6x9, and many others. I called Eurooptic a few months back and they gave me a list of scopes to consider including this one. I ultimately pulled the trigger and bought it along with the throw level and ballistic turret. I mounted it and brought it to the range. Believe it or not, I consistently shot .5 to .75 MOA groups using Black Hills 168gr. match factory rounds. I was very impressed, and I out shot many of the guys with high end bolt guns on the line that day. This scope was clear, easy to use, and looks great. Also, the Swarovski on-line ballistic system is extremely user friendly and an excellent tool. I highly recommend this scope, and Eurooptic!
