As a result of their low weight slender 1″ main tubes and compact size, the ultra-precise Swarovski Optik AV models are the best rifle scopes for hunting at the move.
Thought to be one of the most classics of Swarovski’s 1-inch riflescope line, the Habicht AV 6-18×50 is ideal for the hunter who wants a small scope but doesn’t need to forgo essentially the most crucial feature of a brand new riflescope–a high-precision optic. The scope is outfitted with an impressive 6-18x magnification range, making it suitable for wide paths in open terrain and hunting over long distances. The scope’s slender 1-inch main tube, meanwhile, offers extremely bright optics, with a sophisticated light gathering system that provides a wide field of view and optimum edge-to-edge sharpness. Add in a plex reticle–which permits the eye to quickly locate the center of the reticle for precision aiming–and you might be well equipped for a day within the field or forest.
Other features include a 50mm objective lens diameter; a shapely design that matches up with all varieties of firearms; a lightweight, rugged body that weighs only 20.3 ounces; a quick-focusing eyepiece with generous eye relief to give protection to against recoil; and a sturdy water-proof and nitrogen-purged housing that is submersible to 13 feet. All Swarovski riflescopes carry a life-time warranty.

About Swarovski Optik
Even if founded in 1949, Swarovski Optik’s roots in truth trace all of the as far back as 1895, when Austrian Daniel Swarovski–who invented the world’s first electric grinding machine for jewelry stones–established the circle of relatives-owned Swarovski Crystal within the province of Tyrol. Since then, the name Swarovski has grow to be synonymous around the globe with the clearest crystal, precision grinding, and a brilliant spirit of innovation, as the original enterprise continued branching out into additional lines of business.
Swarovski Optik owes its upward thrust to Wilhelm Swarovski, son of the original founder and an avid hobby astronomer, who determined to build his own improved binocular in 1935 at a mere 17 years of age. With get admission to to the specialized glass production and finishing technologies already used to manufacture jewelry stones in his father’s factory, Wilhelm managed to develop a novel prism fabrication and grinding process that he applied in constructing his first 6×30 binocular. Wilhelm went on to found Swarovski Optik KG in Absam, Tyrol, in 1949, thus laying the foundation for a sports optics company with a global reputation. His company’s first serial product, the Habicht 7×42, continues to be an industry standard within the field of hunting optics and is still produced in the most efficient tradition of its founder.
