I was wanting to know ya'lls opinions on Meopta scopes. Also what is the difference between the Artemis series and the Meostar R1 series? Are these scopes a step above the Zeiss Conquest or are they on a level playing field?? Thanks--Bboy623

I would put the R1 at least equal to the conquest, in my view its a hair better.

They are shorter on eye relief.

Glass is good, build seems to be sturdy.

Well here is what I found, of course using SWFA prices:
 
Meopta R1
3-10X50.....$650
3-12X56.....$800
 
Zeiss Conquest
3-9X50...........$600
3.5-10X44......$700
3.5-10X50......$750
 
I'm thinking the best value for your money is the R1 in 3-10X50 for $650. It is a 30mm scope vs the conquest only being a 1 inch.
 
Regardless of brand, what is the best bang for you buck in a high quality scope??? I don't want to spend $650 if a $500 scope will do the job for me. But at the same time if there actually is a $150 difference in quality I want to know.--Bboy623

And does anyone know what the $250 cash back on Zeiss scopes is? There's a banner on SWFA but theres not any more info or link to click on. I can not find any info on the Zeiss site as well--Bboy623

I believe the $cash is for the victory line of optics.
