A client sent me a scope to work on and I'm struggling to positively ID it.
The objective double is cracked along the edges of the inner most lens.

The scope says:

ZFM
6 x 42 Z

It has no manufacturer's mark on it anywhere. The owner has already sent it to Kahles and they sent it back saying it was not a Kahles.

So is it a Swarovski?

I called the Swarovski repairs department and they told me that they could not work on it because they had no ZFM parts. They were so kind to give two phone numbers of individuals who could do repairs but they both told me that they do not work on rifle scopes and they seemed surprised that i was given their numbers.

So did Swarovski make the ZFM 6 x 42 with no manufacturer's marks?

If this is a Swarovski where would I find a replacement objective lens cell?

Thanks

JB

Yeah, that's what I'm trying to figure out.

I'm looking for a definitive answer from someone familiar with Swarovski scopes saying either:

1. All Swarovski scopes do have a Swarovski manufacturer's mark on them.

Or

2. Some genuine Swarovski scopes do not have a Swarovski manufacturer's mark on them.

I just cannot for the life of me believe that Swarovski would not mark their scopes with a manufacturer's name or symbol somewhere on the piece.
