The only scopes I know with 6x zoom factor are Bushnell 6500, Swarovski Z6 and some IOR models like 3-18x.

...and none of those are with 1" tube. Bushnell and Swarovski are 30mm ja IOR is 35mm.

The most I have seen in a quality 1" tube recently is a 4x erector:
1.25-5x
1.5-6x
2-8x
2.5-10x
and so on.

A few years ago Sightron had a 3-15x42 scope with a 1" tube (5x erector).

Pentax has just introduced a 3-15x50 Gameseeker scope (that is a lower end scope line though).

That is all I can think of.

The Sightron was a decent scope, but it was one of the first attempts to make a 5x erector.  The optics and mechanics were pretty good, but the field of view was a bit narrow.

The Pentax was just introduced and I doubt it is already available. 

Why this interest in high multiple erector scopes with 1" tubes?

I just like wide zoom scopes but have no need for the benefits of 30mm tubes

The thing is, the mechanical gadgetry required for the wide zoom ratio is much easier to fit in a larger tube.
