Swarovski Z8i 1-8x24

We stock several different models in the Z8i line. The Swarovski Z8i 1-8×24 is a rugged and dependable single purpose-built Dangerous Game optic. This optic provides a magnification range that is perfect for close encounters with Dangerous Game.


Swarovski Z8i 1.7 13.3x42


The 1-8×24 is the only Z8i with a 1x zoom, providing the largest possible field of view for hunting unpredictable dangerous game. The 4A-IF reticle allows the shooter to choose between the  illuminated circle dot reticle, perfect for moving targets, and an illuminated dot, ideal for stationary targets.


This optic is intended for large caliber dangerous game rifles, and pairs perfectly with one of our custom DGRs in 375 H&H or 416 Rem. Mag.









The Swarovski Z8i is our flagship product line for high-end uncompromising optics combining excellent performance in low light conditions, and unparalleled edge-to edge clarity, with the best illumination system available. The Z8i line represents the best that Swarovski has to offer.


The Z8i line utilizes the upgraded Swarovski High Definition lenses for sharper, brighter images, especially noticeable in the higher magnification range. This makes the Z8s clearly superior for high-magnification requirements in low light conditions. Of course, the Z8s use the same 4-point coil spring erector system for precise, repeatable tracking which is essential for long range reliability. Finally, the Ballistic Turret Flex system, unique to the Z8 line, allows quick attach and detach of the ballistic turret, with more range and flexibility than the turret system on Swarovski Z6 and Z5 lines.
