    Based on my own testing of the Swarovski X5 scope over the last three months I am completely impressed and I have decided that two of my own rifles will now sport X5’s -- my main rifle chambered in 6.5 GAP 4S and my lightweight Mountain Rifle also chambered in that cartridge.

    My dad compared the Swarovski X5 to some other top scopes and wrote a review article which you can read - HERE.

    We sell them at The Long Range Hunting Store - HERE - for the same MAP price as all other Swarovski dealers. We always ship optics FREE. If you are in the market for a 2nd focal plane long range scope with some of the best glass around, we highly recommend the X5 and X5i.

    And if you like and want to help support it, we'd sure appreciate your business.

    We tested an X5 for poa stability on a scope checker and it was excellent. Awesome glass too.
