Swarovski Z Series Riflescopes If you are a shooter then you more than likely use and have used a riflescope. If you started shooting in the past 50 years then you most likely have a variable power (zoom) riflescope. What you may know, or not know, is that variable power, zoom, riflescopes were not developed until the late 1940s. Other advances that we take for granted, such as waterproof scopes did not appear until 1960, and fully multi-coated lenses were not really available until the early 1970s. I know, all this is quite fascinating and you're thinking, so what. What does this mean to me. I don't need to know the whys and wherefores I want quality. I want the shot. All I want is a great quality scope that will hold zero, be sharp, bright and repeatable. All understood. The one thing that has also gone unanswered all these years since the 1040's is that the majority of these variable power scopes have offered a 3x zoom magnification (3-9, 4-12, etc) Times have changed, and if you have not kept up then you are missing out. Until now your options of which scope for which application has been confining. Swarovski's new line of Z series riflescopes come in the afore mentioned 3x power in their Z3, however, there is also a 5x ( 3.5-18x44mm, 5-25x52mm ) in their new Z5 series as well as 6x ( 1-6x24mm, 1.7-10x42mm, 2-12x50mm, 2.5-15x44mm, 2.5-15x56mm, 3-18x50mm & 5-30x50mm) in their Z6 series.
