Swarovski Z8i 2.3-18x56

The Swarovski Z8i 2.3-18×56 pushes the already excellent light-gathering of the Z8i line to the absolute limit with the largest front objective lens in the entire lineup. The 2.3X offers a large field of view for tight hunting quarters while the 18X is perfect for picking up details at longer ranges. 


One consideration when comparing this scope to the Z8i 2-16X50 is that a higher scope ring is usually needed to accommodate the 56mm objective, so stock design and fit is critical for proper cheek weld and scope acquisition.We can help you with these decisions.


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. 

We offer several crosshair options across the Z8i line. The 4w-I option on the top offers wind holds of 2 MOA at 16x magnification, and the 4-I on the bottom offers a clean, unobstructed sight picture
