Can the new Swaro Z5 or Z6 be customized?

I would like to have a Swaro Z5 3.5-18 x44 or Z6 3-18x50 set up like a Huskemaw or a www.greybullprecision.com Leupold. Can it be done, and if so who and how?

Specifically, what I want is a Hunting Reticle that is set up with MOA windage adjustment marks and a custom bullet Drop Compensating Turret (DCT) designed for my specific rifle, load data, and hunting conditions. If this is possible on a Swaro scope I think it would be PERFECT but, as of yet, I haven't seen where anyone is doing it. Anyone else know more about it?

Swarovski makes some very nice turrets that you can set up to your rifle. I also really like the BRH RET.

If we can be of help feel free to ask.

Re: Can the new Swaro Z5 or Z6 be customized?

I actually emailed Swaro to see if they had some way to customize like i want. Really nice and prompt customer service, but doesn't sound like they can give me exactly what I want. What I really want is MOA windage marks on the horizontal reticle. If i had that I could live with their ballistic turrets, which are really nice, but a little limited in their range. I just really love their glass and what's not to love about a scope that lightweight with 6x zoom. U know of anyone that can help with that? Thanks Mike

A rep from Swaro actually emailed me the following response:

Hi Mr. Minton.

Thank you for your interest and kind words about Swarovski Optik products. I believe we will be able to help you out here.

To begin with, one of our dealers, the Outdoorsmans, located in Phoenix AZ, will be able to sell you one of our BT rifle scopes, as well as customize an elevation turret for your particular load, that is a very easy fit, simply replacing the 2 top rings of our BT turret. This is a section of their web-site describing the :
http://shop.outdoorsmans.com/product.sc;jsessionid=8E99F03B7F564D7322444CD66D2F BADB.qscstrfrnt01?productId=335&categoryId=61

If for some reason the link doesn't work, you can call them at 1-800-291-8065. You can get any of out BT scopes currently with the Plex reticle.

Also, If you can be just a little bit more patient [just another 1-2 months], you will be able to order a Z5 3.5-18x44 BT with windage compensation in MOA increments on the horizontal crosshair. [the new reticle will NOT be available on the Z6 3-18x50 you also mentioned]

I believe you will find this scope system to be worth the wait. We will also have supporting information from our on-line ballistic calculator for wind in MOA increments.
