The Swarovski crystal maker's Optik branch build hunting rifle scopes.
I thought that was worth mentioning.

OMG how bloody random!! I use Swarovski in my jewellery designs too. :mad:
Hmphh back to the design board there then! Who would have thought it? I mean why?!! They can advertise on anything and support anything but why scopes? Does anyone know? :eek:

Lenses. I suppose if it involves precision grinding, they produce it.
I'm not actually suggesting that to buy Swarovski would be automatically unvegan, but it's better to know, to make an educated choice either way in future.

Bleh, I hate to support anything to do with hunting, though it'd be hard to find a scope (or any other accessories) from a manufacturer that doesn't have hunting connections.

...although I suppose that's not necessarily the manufacturer's fault.
