Might be old news but Meopta drops R2 2-12x50 and 2.5-15x56 series due to patent conflicts. This according to Meopta USA.

Where did you find this info? I don't see it on the global or USA sites.

But on a positive note (IMO), Meopta has reintroduced many of the original Zeiss Conquest scope models under the "Meopro" line.

Those were great scope values, and it is good to see them for sale again.

Ditto.  May still buy one from the stock out there.  (Guess I'd better hurry though, as this adds a little urgency...)

Having owned a R1 for several years and having been well pleased with it, I too was set to buy an R2 several months ago when I got wind of the patent issue. Backed off. Really like the red cross (+) in the center of the illuminated model.

I have been looking at this model and found this forum. I may still buy from stock but have a question. Is the R2 really alpha glass?

To be clear, the MeoStar R2 series has not been discontinued by Meopta, but does have limited availability in America.  In ROW markets all models are available;

1-6x24: 4C or K-Dot 2

1.7-10x42: 4C or 4K

2-12x50: 4C or 4K

2.5-15x56: 4C or 4K

NEW 8x56 ... coming summer 2016
