If you’re a tactical operator looking for some cool new gear in 2017, there’s already a lot of high-quality offerings to choose from. Case in point: Meopta’s newest tactical riflescope, the 34mm MeoTac 3-12×50 RD. Designed for medium-range engagement, this riflescope will get the job done for armed forces, security details and tactical shooters. Here’s what Meopta has to say about it, via their official press release.

This scope features MeoLux, Meopta’s most advanced lens coating.  MeoLux, combined with Schott glass and expert design, enables 99.8% light transmission per lens surface allowing users to see better and longer in the most challenging light.  The solid 34mm aircraft-grade aluminum tube allows for expansive windage and elevation ranges of 55 MOA and 100 MOA respectively with click adjustments of 1/3 MOA.  The illuminated MilDot 3 RD reticle, located in the first focal plane, enables use of the rangefinding elements of the reticle on any power setting.  The new MeoTac 3-12×50 RD also features precision tactical mil-mil turrets with a large grip, easily distinguishable positive clicks and a zero-stop function.

The side-focus parallax adjustment ranges from 27 yards to infinity and the integrated illumination control is also located on the side of the center of the scope, making adjustment in the field quick, easy and convenient.  The RD illumination system features a highly defined illuminated red dot reticle with 16 reticle intensity settings for all light conditions and intermediate off positions between every setting.  The auto-off function will switch the illumination off if unused for one hour.

The MeoTac 3-12×50 RD features Meopta’s MeoShield protective lens coatings, MeoQuick fast-focus eyepiece and an erector system designed for maximum holding force to withstand heavy caliber recoil.  This scope also has an anodized exterior for scratch resistance and is waterproof and fogproof for maximum performance and durability.  The MeoTac 3-12×50 RD is covered by Meopta’s North American lifetime transferable warranty.

The MeoTac 3-12×50 RD is available at a suggested retail price of $2,529.99. For more information, visit
