Swarovski Optik North America, a subsidiary of the Austrian-based company is pleased to announce the introduction of the X5(i) Rifle Scope series. The X5(i) has been developed specifically with the long range shooter in mind. The X5(i) is a brand new design built for extreme precision on an exceptionally rugged platform.

The newly designed turrets allow for 20 MOA per revolution, have a viewing window to show the user what revolution he or she is on and the X5(i) has 1/4 MOA point-of-impact adjustments.

At the heart of the X5(i) is a spring retention and lever system that exerts the same pressure on both turrets from the inversion system regardless of positioning. This assures maximum accuracy and repeatability. There is up to 116 MOA of elevation adjustment inside of a 30 mm tube that yields a 5X zoom range. The elevation, windage, parallax turrets as well as inversion system are built from stainless steel components adding to the overall ruggedness of this scope for hunting or competitive purposes.

The X5(i) also features a new subzero function. This allows the shooter to shoot at closer distances if the zero is set at a further than usual zero. It allows the shooter to come down 10 MOA or 40 clicks from a pre-set zero.

The illuminated versions will be fully illuminated reticles and have 10 brightness settings. 2nd focal plane long range reticles will be available in 1 or 2 MOA increments in both illuminated and non-illuminated versions.

The new X5(i) Rifle Scope will be available in two different models, X5(i) 3.5-18x50 and X5(i) 5-25x56, in Fall 2015.
