    Which Swarovski scope

    With all the positive feedback on Swarovski on these forums, I have decided to buy a Swarovski scope for woodland stalking.

    Which Swarovski model would you recommend?

    Regards

    Ive got the z6i 2-12x50 BT I love it for all the shooting I do maybe somebody with more woodland experience may be able to offer more advice on what mag but what ever one you go with swaro is the way to go IMO

    Its not cool and trendy - so much so Swarovski ( for all I love 'em ) dont even list anymore.

    But pretty hard to beat a bread and butter 6x42 - just look how fast they go when they do come up.

    Well said Sussex Fallow and as Moray oufitting stated nothing wrong with a 6x42 a deer shot with a 6x42 wont be any less died that if shot with a 2-12x50 z6i.

    As soon as I saw the heading I thought "*****! how long before some genius suggests that they have a really good barska (or other) and there`s no need to spend Swarovski type money on a scope"

    My answer..just about any Swarovski .....pref a variable.

    Z6i 2-12 x 50 just covers all that you need not tried the BT version but heard mixed reviews.

    The 3 I like most are the 8x50 (4Ai), the Z4 3-12x50 and the 6-24x50 (TDS-4i). Either of the first 2 would be a nice pick for woodland use.

    About right, or if you are feeling flush, the Z6i1.7-10x42. I am becoming a fan of 42mm scopes.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......
