Hi Stone,
I have just acquired a brand spanking Swarovski 6-18x50 AV after much deliberation and running back and forth between Zeiss and Swarovski. It is a fantastic scope with unsurpassed clarity. I am a very happy man. Frankly, if you really really want it and you know its going to be worth splashing out that little extra, go for it. Life’s too short. Anyway if you don’t spend it on the scope, the money will just whittle away into general living costs!

ps. I looked at the Z6 at the midlands and was very impressed didn's see the illum version though.
best of luck

cheers for that 2428 i too saw them at the midland and was so impressed at the illuminated one that i started saving the pennies it is just thinking of all the stalking i could buy but as you say if it is what i want and think it is worth it then i should go for it as it will be part of the kit for a good many years many thanks stone

I bought a 2.5-10x56 Swarovski sight ( just the normal one) I use it on the works Sako .22/250 which we use for foxing.

With the optics and clarity being so good, when I go out at night, I find I only need a small amount of light from the beam for lamping.

But the only down side is the price, but they hold the price very well. I paid £970. 7 years ago, and the price is about the same today.

The pro - is the guarenttee you get with it, far better than any other optic, I think it would be a lifetime one.
