Hi all!
This is my first post at the forum, hope someone can help me out.
I'm thinking of purchasing a 4 year old Swarovski Habicht 3-12x50 for use on my Brno .222R deer rifle. Does anyone know where in the Swarovski line-up the Habicht was, high-end or budget (if one can use the term budget when referring to Swarovski?) ?
Among the current models, the AV-series are at the lower scale of their models line-up, is/was the Habicht its equivalent?
Reticle is 8, and I intend to use it mostly for deer hunting on greater distances and the bird hunt (Tetrao tetrix) (Tetrao urogallus) in the winter.
 
How do you experience sharpness and color in these rifle scopes?
 
Regards,
Joachim, Sweden

It's in the upper line. Same as the PH series for us in the US or PV series in Europe. An "A" Line series would have had the 3X erector, 4-12 instead of 3-12. Nice scope.

Thanks for providing the link, however it doesn't work (probably because the auction hasn't started yet?).
Are your other items found when I search "SWFA" on ebay.com, or do you have an Ebay Shop where I can browse your auctions?

FWIW, All I get is a message stating that "This listing has been removed or is no longer available... if the listing was removed by eBay, consider it cancelled."

I'm probably a minority but I don't really care for e-bay.

Try the sample list >>> http://www.swfa.com/samplelist.aspx

I bought one used a couple of years ago. It's a great scope.....I have it on a Tikka T3 .270 WSM. I don't think it's as bright in low light as a Zeiss Diavari vm/v but it is more rugged. I have dropped my gun hard twice and it stayed dead on zero which is more than I can say for my Diavari. Swarovski's warranty follows the scope not the owner..........so you will have a full warranty. And it's got a nice eye piece that won't bust your eye if you happen to get hit from recoil !!
 
Overall I am really happy with mine ! Clear , bright in low light(just not top dog), and rugged as they come !!

Thanks for the link, but I've already bought myself a PV 3-12x50 on friday, should be in my mail box tomorrow! :)
What is a resonable second hand price (4 year old, little wear) in the US?
I paid $1300 for mine, used but in very good condition.
I believe prices are higher in Sweden in general when it comes to optics, whether it'll be binos or rifle scopes.
