I remember that you like wild boar hunting by moonlight, in my opinion you should chose Nikon (Monarch) because of better glass (lenses) Japanese know how to produce high quality products. We have a lot of meopta products in our shops but our hunters are still looking for something with more light transmission and with a good image or old tradition. Before we had the only choice between Russian, Polish and German optic, and most of us used a Carl Zeiss Jena optic (now Docter) not Czech because they start with riflescopes less than 20 years ago.
Last week I got a new Bushnell Elite 4200 2,5-10 x 50 with fire fly reticle from USA (made in Japan) Iíll use it in two weeks on my 30-06 Mauser. I hope it will be much better than old Carl Zeiss Jena 6x42. By the way we have the same crazy prices for optics like you in Portugal, they just multiplied American prices by 2 or 3.
