    3-12x56 meostar gets my vote. That’s a great hunting low light scope. Definitely top tier.

    You might want to wait to see how the Optika 6 line pans out. There should be reviews coming out in the next few weeks.

    Schmidt & Bender is overrated, IMO. Plus, that new yellow tint they're using on the lenses is horrific.

    Cant go wrong with Meopta glass and you wont be able to find any bad reviews on the Meostar R1 image quality. Nikon Monarch riflescopes are pretty good, but they cant compare to top end Meopta glass.

    Maybe also have a look at the Trijicon Accupower line. Excellent Japanese ED glass.

    Meopta Meostar all the way ! I bought a Monarch 5 last year because it was a “deal” and the rifle was a backup to a backup rifle. I’m used to Swarovski and Meopta and the Monarch 5 was a huge disappointment. I hadn’t bought a Nikon in many years and I won’t be buying any more.

    Some of the Optika 6 are in the same price range. They have a 6x erector and if the optical quality is as good as I hope, they will be a bargain.

    If you see one that has a set of features you like, as I said, it might be worth waiting.

    Just a suggestion, if you can't wait, don't.

    Sure but some companies don't have a whole lot of difference between entry level and top of the line.

    I'm not saying buy one, it might just be a compelling option if the optical and mechanical quality are as good as they said the prototypes were.

    Optika6 is essentially the MeoPro glass with added mechanical and magnification features.

    But Meopta's entry level scopes aren't anything like Vortex, Leupold, Bushnell, Nikon and other brands that produce cheap Chinese trash for entry level.
    Even entry level Meopta optics are good quality and will impress for the price.

    Yeah we will just have to see when more people get them in their hands. Either way not worried about quality or glass. I know Meopta will deliver in those areas.

    Just got a reply back from the Meopta CS yesterday. The 4.5-27x50 I want wont be shipping for another day 4 weeks :(

    On a positive note, he sent me a picture of the 6.5 Creedmoor Dichrotech reticle. I dont have a 6.5 CM, but wanted to see what the new design looked like since theres no pics of it on the web site.
