I got a call from Ilya that Meopta has a new Meostar introduced at SHOT!

1.5-6x42, illuminated dot with a German #4
dual illumination setup, 3 positions each, day and night
Retailing for under a grand

He called to tell me as he knew it would be right up my alley so to speak

I had spoke with their marketing manager a few months ago and we discussed illuminated reticles and I brought up how many are too bright for night time use,  he made reference to the above new system but couldn't give out any details.

If this could have good glass, a good illumination system and have a street price for 7-800 bucks they could have a winner... 

One thing I asked him about was the eye relief as the Meopro 4-12 we have on T&E has finnicky eye relief, he mentioned they were aware and working on it, and at first pass thought this seemed better..

He will have one coming and so will I

Regretably, my wife got sick on Monday and has been in bed all week
My flight to Vegas tonight left without me on it..
oh well, family first
my brother will be out there for TGR

I am very happy to hear about this scope as there is definitely a whole in this market

  Yippee  As a user of low powered fixed and variable scopes it's REALLY GOOD to see we haven't      been left out and that Meopta is willing to take a chance.  That scope's definitely got potential.
