Meopta has introduced its latest generation of MeoStar riflescopes with the new R2 series, starting with the 30mm MeoStar 1-6x24 RD. The new model is not only the first of its line, but also Meopta's first riflescope with a 6x zoom ratio.
With a true 1x magnification, wide field of view, edge-to-edge clarity and illuminated reticle options of either the K-Dot 2 or 4C-RD, the MeoStar 1-6x24 RD allows for extremely fast and accurate target acquisition. The versatile R2 is also designed to be excellent for close-quarter situations on an AR platform, and much longer shots depending on the caliber being used and the shooter's proficiency.
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.
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.
The initial R2 will be available in two reticle options—the K-Dot 2 or the 4C-RD—and will ship with an MSRP of $1,595.
