Never used their scopes, but my Swarovski binoculars were noticeable better than ones I had by Zeiss and Leica that cost almost as much. The price of their scopes is a bit much for me, I am mulling over which scope to buy for my heavy barrel .308 and willing to spend $1000 or a bit more, but that wouldn't get me a Swarovski. A factory discount would make it a lot more doable though. They have a factory in the U.S. now ?

Ha, that would be awesome. I'm still trying to learn more details. My wife just said she gets steep discounts on anything swarovski makes; scopes, jewelry, etc. To the member who asked if they have a plant in the US, I guess they must now. First my wife said she had 2 jobs, one working for swarovski, and the other working for a company that assembles rifle scopes. I'm assuming they are the same job and my wife just misheard her. I'm not really in the market for a $2000 scope. Personally I'd rather get a new AR and another Eotech for that kind of money. Either way if I find out more info ill add to the forum.

I thought that the Z3s were US made, and the higher end Z5 and Z6's were made overseas. But I've read so much scope stuff this the facts, specs and names are all a blur.

I have a Swarovski 6X42 on my .30-06 primary hinting rifle. It's been absolutely wonderful for my needs over the years.

Yeah so turns out this lady has to build "points" for how many hours she works, then she gets her discount. She told my wife she's building her points to save up for a pair of swarovski binoculars....whomp whomp.
