Meopta MeoStar R2 1.7-10x42 RD Riflescope series

Meopta has made two additions to its newest generation MeoStar R2 riflescopes series: the 1.7-10×42 RD and 2-12×50 RD.

These premium 30mm MeoStar R2 riflescopes, designed for the most demanding hunters, feature a 6x variable magnification range, wide field of view and exceptional light transmission.

MeoLux, Meopta’s most advanced lens coating, combined with Schott glass and expert design, enables 99.8 percent light transmission per lens surface allowing hunters using MeoStar R2 riflescopes to see better and hunt longer.

Available in two illuminated reticle options – 4C-RD or 4K-RD – these new MeoStar R2 scopes allow for extremely fast and accurate target acquisition. All MeoStar R2 riflescopes are parallax free to 100 yards and have Meopta’s MeoDrop hydrophobic lens coating which repels rain, snow, skin oils and dirt.

The compact, versatile MeoStar R2 1.7-10×42 RD is designed and engineered to meet the needs of a wide array of hunters across the globe. It is an ideal scope for most close-range shots in dense cover and also for mid-range shots in more open terrain.

The MeoStar R2 2-12×50 RD is an all-purpose, premium scope designed to give hunters an edge in lower light. The larger 50mm objective provides increased light transmission allowing hunters to see more clearly in the earliest and latest hours of the day.

The new RD8 illumination system in the R2 riflescopes 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. 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.

Two reticle options are available: 4C and 4K.

MSRP is as follows:

  • MeoStar R2 1.7-10×42 RD (Reticle 4C): $1,666.35
  • MeoStar R2 1.7-10×42 RD (Reticle 4K): $1,666.35
