Veritable crowds of people were swarming around the Swarovski Optik booth at the trade show in Nuremberg, with everyone wanting to catch a glimpse of the newest product. The object in such high demand was the dS 5-25x52 P riflescope. We, too, were quick to recognize that this optical device is unlike anything before it on the market in the field of riflescopes for hunting.
Features of the Swarovski dS 5-25x52 P riflescope
At first glance, the Swarovski dS 5-25x52 P may look like a classic riflescope for hunting, but the initial impression is deceiving. Hidden inside is the ultimate in technology.
The goal of every hunter is to aim accurately and kill game with a precise shot in line with hunting principles. However, a whole lot more than just distance needs to be accounted for every time a shot is being aimed: Wind velocities, temperature, and, above all, the ballistics of the shot are part of the equation as well. The point of aim will change depending on these factors. Swarovski seeks to assist the hunter as much as possible with the new dS riflescope. This innovative riflescope automatically shows the correct point of aim.
One part of calculating the point of aim is pushing a button to have the riflescope measure the precise distance and also factor in parameters such as the magnification setting, air pressure, temperature, and even the angle. Along with the correct point of aim, the smart technology in the dS riflescope also displays all relevant data for successful hunting.
First, the hunter enters the firearm ammunition combination using a corresponding configurator app and transfers it directly to the dS riflescope via Bluetooth. The program calculates the ballistic curve based on the ballistic information and displays the new point of aim. All important information for success during the hunt is projected in real time by the electronics in the field of view in a way that is not distracting. And all of this goes on while the external influences are being factored in. This makes manual settings on the riflescope superfluous!
The Chairperson of the Board at Swarovski Optik, Carina Schiestl-Swarovski, has the following to say about the new dS riflescope: “The challenges of today can best be overcome using the technology of tomorrow. The future of hunting has already arrived in the form of this riflescope.”
Summary at all4hunters.com for the Swarovski dS 5-25x52 P riflescope
With up to 25x magnification, the new Swarovski dS 5-25x52 P target scope is an absolute specialist when it comes to long distances. Even though the riflescope is only slightly larger than a comparable Swarovski X5 5-25x56, it has innovative technology inside it that makes manual setting obsolete. We are of the opinion that, with this riflescope, Swarovski could be engineering a leap into a whole new era in hunting.
