Those new Meopta R2 scopes look interesting. More eye relief, hydro coatings, new illumination, not to heavy, 1.7-10x42 and 2-12x50 models, low light color weighted (guess that's what they would call it anyway) hummm
Meopta riflescopes are already designed to provide low-light dominance to the North American hunter, but Meopta’s new MeoLux lens coating clearly separates Meopta from the herd by providing industry-leading light transmission through the entire visible spectrum. The advanced MeoLux technology, premium Schott glass lenses and expert design enable 99.8% light transmission per glass surface resulting in 95% transmission through the entire scope. This allows hunters to see more clearly in the lowest light of morning and into the last light of evening. As with all Meopta optics, the new MeoStar delivers a crystal clear, bright image with exceptional color reproduction. Simply put, seeing better helps you hunt longer and make lethal shots safely in lower light.
Meopta engineers have also created a brand-new illumination system for the R2 series which is visible even in the brightest of daylight. This new RD8 illumination system has eight levels of reticle intensity so the brightness level of the red dot can be adjusted to accommodate the ever-changing light and weather conditions in the field – from the brightest sunshine and snow to the dimmest light.
Improved windage and elevation turrets are quickly resettable to zero and easy to grip, even with gloves on. The hydrophobic MeoDrop lens coatings ensure the highest level of visual clarity, easily repelling rain, snow, skin oils and dirt. Focal adjustment is also quick and easy thanks to Meopta’s MeoQuick fast-focus eyepiece, and the external lens surfaces are protected from scratches and abrasion by the robust MeoShield coating.
Like all Meopta riflescopes, the MeoStar R2 riflescope is machined from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and built to withstand extreme conditions. The scope features an anodized exterior for scratch resistance and is waterproof, shockproof and fogproof for maximum performance and durability.
