I noticed the Swarovski Z6 has an SR line. What exactly does that mean, is it a rail, can it be installed on any rifle, advantages, disadvantages, etc?

Thanks,
Sam

They are Rail Scopes SR stands for Swarovski Rail. It can be installed on any rifle that will accept weaver style mounts. It takes adapter pieces pictured here.
 
Paragraph off SawrovskiOptik.com
New Swarovski rifle scopes with the innovative SR mounting rail (Swarovski Rail) a genuine revolution in the precision and the mounting of rifle scopes. This unique meshing system will prevent any movement whatsoever of the rifle scope, which may result from recoil forces – even with big game and wild boar calibers.  As a result, it is now possible to not only mount the riflescope much closer to the rifle, but the mounting location can also be easily changed at any time.

In other words, the line of sight is closer to the barrell. Also It can be mounted on pretty much any gun and, you can mount it closer or farther away from you than you could with just a normal ring and base setup. I personally am not a huge fan but, to each his own.

You're not a fan because of the looks?

I have a 3-12 SR in a TDS-Plex and am very happy with it. It took a bit to get used to the reticel in the first focal plane.  As far as the software offered by Swaro for the TDS, TDS-4, and the Balistic, I can not say enough about it.  From what I gather the 3-12 is the only scope offered in the first focal plane with these reticels.  It is convienent to have the same values throughout your magnification range with the 3-12 since the 1st f-plane.  As far as the rail mount system, easy to mount and I think it serves a good purpose. Like alligator teath in your neighbors cat, it isn't going to let it go! I have mine mounted on a 300 WSM. If you want a pic let me know. Hope this helps.

I guess that I can not post pics on this forum.  I must need more posts under my belt in order to have that privilege? From the image icon all I get are generic icons offered by the site. Am I doing something wrong? I will get those pics to you one way or the other because I just took the time to take the damn things.  Thanks
Matt

The pics have to be relatively "small" size.... maybe that's the issue.

Looks like I need to be a post whore in order to post pics. 18 more posts! Not a very well thought out restriction.  Oh well.

I too have a Swarovski PH scope with the SR rail mounted on a Weatherby Back Country rifle in 257 caliber. I used an EGW base and bought the Swarovski adapters from competitor . It is a very solid system with good looks as well. No need for levels to line up cross hairs as this system is plumb from the get go. It costs a little more then your standard base and rings but is a rock solid setup.

Actually it is a great restriction.  Then all those spammers that come on here all the time cannot post pics of all the crap they are tying to sell.  Very well thought out IMO.

Also, a member who goes by the handle "TheKid" has an SR Swaro on his Ruger M77 and Remington M700 rifles shown in this thread:
Thought this would give you a good idea of what the system looks like when used with 2 piece bases.  In one pic with the Ruger, you get a good look at the SR system.

Thanks Ted,

With the two piece bases, the rail system is not bad looking at all! It actually looks like it might be a more secure system for a heavy recoiling rifle.
