I picked up a 6x42 scope today made in Czechoslovakia.  The logo doesn't look like the Meopta logo but kind of like a WSC joined together in a vertical line.  I'm going by memory here since I don't have the scope in front of me right now.  From the engraving of the 6x42 it looks like maybe the scope was made in the 80s. 

I know that this isn't a lot to go on and that with out photos it's hard to do much but if there were other companies importing scopes besides Meopta it might help me track it down.  When I get a chance I'll post some photos.

Thanks

Chad

P.S.  This is my first post.

I would love to get this from you.

This is a pretty rare scope to see.

I am guessing this is a bring back or came over here in a collection.

I hate to see it go to waste.

SRB STYS

PRAHA


Optikotechna

then MEOPTA

ZPA KOSIRE...

I have picked up a rifle that was shot in my direction with a scope stamped with that imprint...

GREAT GLASS absolutely on par with HENSOLDT, WETZLAR, ZEISS...

That's interesting.  I can't seem to find anything online about SRB & STYS.  I got it to go on my CZ 550 American.  The scope is too short to fit on the rifle, so I guess I'll have to get a rail or something.

Just looking through it it seems like a nice scope.  It has the German reticle which I've never used, but well see how it works if I can ever get it on my rifle.

I am sorry to mislead you.
 
You will not find anything about this scope overhere or on our web servers you would have to go to .cz
 
Meopta has bought all that remains of the former companies.
 
They make bases but they are usually custom look at the farrel bases.  Ken Farrel or Farrel Industries.
 
How much  do you feel you have into the scope?
 
Eventhough the glass is not quite as bright you will notice the contrast is great comparaed to anything else produced in that time period and the CA is not as affecting also I would not suggest wiping this style of lens with a cloth or treating it with any glass cleaner or lense cleaner

You didn't mislead me.  I was told else where that it might be a Srb & Stys but I couldn't find any information other than it was eventually merged with Meopta.

Unfortunately the objectives have some rub marks on them.  I guess you should have told the original owner not to use a cloth on the scope. :)
