Does anyone know much about the Meopta "Meostar"?  Advertised new coatings (MB 550) are supposed to be great per Meopta advertising.  How would the following compare in low light: Meopta 3-12x56, Burris Euro Diamond 3-12x50, Leupold VX-III 4.5x14x50.

I have always been interested in these scopes and the ones that I have seen have been pretty good.  I have never had the opportunity to use one nor has anyone that I know.  I would place the Burris as brighter then the Leupold and I cannnot comment on the Meopta since I have not used it.

Does anyone else know anything about the Meostar riflescopes.  I understand the new MB-550 is fully-multicoated, one-piece tube, new raised finger-adjustable W/E knobs, Lifetime Warranty.  I read on another forum that the Meostar was very close in optical quality to the Zeiss VM/V and Swarovski PH series.  If this is close to true, then the listed price at SWFA would be a real steal for that quality of a scope.

I have seen enough Meoptas (including this past Saturday) to comment on this.  No they are at the level of the big boys.  Even indoors, which is the only place I have handled any, they are not as sharp or bright then even say a Zeiss Conquest much less the top of the line.  They do seem to be pretty good in possibly a real bargain in the 30mm range.  But no, they are not at the level of the Germans or Austrians.

I dont know Meopta meostar, buy I use the meopta 2000  3000 and are very bright scopes (and the N4, N8 reticles are better than american duplex ), In general the european brands are the low light experts....
