Swarovski Optik AV Riflescope (3-9×36, 4A-Reticule)
Because of their low weight slender 1″ main tubes and compact size, the ultra-precise Swarovski Optik AV models are the ideal rifle scopes for hunting on the move.
Considered one of the classics of Swarovski’s 1-inch riflescope line, the Habicht AV 3-9×36 is ideal for the hunter who wants a small scope but doesn’t want to forgo the most essential feature of a modern riflescope–a high-precision optic. The scope is outfitted with a modest 3-9x magnification range, making it suitable for fans of the traditional hunt. 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 4A reticle–which allows the eye to quickly locate the center of the scope for precision aiming–and you’re well equipped for a day in the field or forest.
Other features include a 36mm objective lens diameter; a lightweight, rugged body that weighs only 11.6 ounces; a quick-focusing eyepiece with generous eye relief to protect against recoil; and a sturdy waterproof and nitrogen-purged housing that’s submersible to 13 feet. The AV riflescope carries a lifetime warranty.

About Swarovski Optik
Although founded in 1949, Swarovski Optik’s roots actually trace all the way back to 1895, when Austrian Daniel Swarovski–who invented the world’s first electric grinding machine for jewelry stones–established the family-owned Swarovski Crystal in the province of Tyrol. Since then, the name Swarovski has become synonymous worldwide 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 rise to Wilhelm Swarovski, son of the original founder and an avid hobby astronomer, who decided to build his own improved binocular in 1935 at a mere 17 years of age. With access 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, is still an industry standard in the field of hunting optics and continues to be produced in the best tradition of its founder.
