    Swarovski 8x56 Illuminated

    Anyone got any experience of these? just purchased one as a bit of an impulse buy!! Not mounted it on a rifle yet but plan to put it on my 6.5x55.

    Some mornings I do struggle to see the cross hair in low light against some of the very dark fallow we have. There have been a few occasions when I have not taken a shot as I have not been 100% sure of the placement so hopefully the illuminated dot will help this.

    Hi Pete,

    Yes brand new from local RFD. I did have trawl through the web and the only other dealer I found selling them was Swilling shooting supplies at 750 so I assumed it was no longer being produced.

    Glad you approve, certainly short for an 8x56 and light too, absolutely cristal clear as one would expect; nice that you can take the illuminated knob off too if you so desire.

    I was in my local gunshop the other day and they told me that only an handful were produced and 2 were sent to each Swaro premier dealer. They aren't old stock, apparently a very limited production of new gear.

    I just bought one tried it today on the range.. I love it much better than my old S&B 8x56...

    cant wait to try on in the woods at low light with the red dot on.. I heard they did do a new run on these as they sold sold well..
