Meopta USA Sport Optics’ newest, high-performance 30mm MeoStar R2 riflescope features a 6x variable magnification range, wide field of view and exceptional light transmission.  Meopta’s advanced MeoLux lens coating is optimized for twilight performance which helps hunters see better and make accurate shots in the most challenging light.

MeoLux combined with Schott glass and expert design, enables 99.8% light transmission per lens surface allowing hunters using MeoStar R2 riflescopes to see better and hunt longer. MeoStar R2 riflescopes are currently available in five models: 1-6×24 RD, 1.7-10×42 RD, 2-12×50 RD, 2.5-15×56 RD and 8×56 RD.

Available in four illuminated reticle options – 4C-RD, 4K-RD, BDC 2 and BDC 3 – the MeoStar R2 2.5-15×56 RD allows for fast and accurate target acquisition.  All MeoStar R2 riflescopes are parallax free to 100 yards and feature Meopta’s MeoDrop hydrophobic lens coating which easily repels rain, snow, skin oils and dirt.

All MeoStar R2 riflescopes feature 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.  Windage and elevation turrets are quickly resettable to zero and easy to grip, even with gloves on.  Focal adjustment is also quick and easy thanks to Meopta’s 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.
