With the DS 5-25X52 P GEN. II, SWAROVSKI OPTIK has launched a new rifle scope that, like its predecessor, combines the optical quality of conventional sighting-in optics with the key benefits of a digital riflescope to create an impressive complete package for hunters who demand the highest levels of performance from their optics.

The scope calculates the correct aiming point at the touch of a button, taking into account the distance, air pressure, temperature, angle, magnification and personal ballistics data.

It is now possible to customize the hunting-related data on the high-resolution display using the dS Configurator app, for example the hunter can display six different digital reticles. Hunters can select which particular parameters (e.g. wind speed, bullet velocity, knock-down power) they want to see on the display, along with their position.

Elements such as windage marks and the new alignment indicator can be switched on and off, depending on personal preference. The reticle illumination also has new features - to ensure the best possible visibility during use, the dS automatically selects between three brightness levels based on the ambient brightness of the environment you are shooting in.

The design has also been enhanced, and the battery turret is now slimmer than its predecessor. The cockpit controls are more ergonomic and the bigger gap between the cockpit and the magnification adjustment ring makes it even easier to operate the rifle scope when aiming.

The dS 5-25x52 P Gen. II is available now at selected specialist retailers.
