are the thin parts of this reticle hard to see in lowlight? ive heard its a great lowlight scope but that they made the thin part of the reticle a bit too thin for lowlight.   im lookin at one to put on my .243

I just recently bought the new fixed 6X42 Meopro with the #4. Although the thin crosshairs are pretty thin and could get lost in the dimmest limits of low light, the thick bars are pretty bold and extend close enough toward the center that the reticle is still very usable. Combine this with the fact that Meopta's optics are very good, with excellent light transmission, and I believe you'll be very pleased with its low light performance.

If you are after light skinned deer you should have no issue
If after dark hogs or bear then go illuminated.

The Meopta #4 is a very good rendition of the #4 for low light. The outer posts are quite bold. If the light is too dim to see the thick posts, it's probably to dim to legally shoot. I believe you'll be very pleased with it.

Good choice. Both my 50MM and 56MM Meoptas with #4s perform well in low light. As pointed out in an earlier similar topic, after the thin crosshairs have faded, the narrowly spaced, wide horizontal bars of the Meopta #4 make it relatively easy to establish a centered aiming point.
