    Meoptar Meostar enquiries/Zeiss Conquest.

    I am looking at a purchase of one of these scopes and only this model I may add.
    Meopta Meostar R1 3-12x56 Illuminated 4C

    Are they as good as their advertising blurb says,I`m sure some of you UK gents would have had the experience of them and thus I`m trying to find as much as possible before I shell out my shekels.

    I already have three of the 3.5-10 x 44 Z/Conquests on rifles and thought that the 56 mm OL`s on a new scope would be handy on the late days of waiting for action.

    Hence the other option is the Zeiss Conquest 3-12 x 56.

    Any input on either would be most welcome

    No I dont have the dosh for a Diavari or a Swarovski thanks!

    Why not R1r? The same spec but the reticule in second focal plane.
    Try egun.de. It will be cheaper.

    i really rate meopta's so much so that i bought one tonight a 3-12x50 armitis 2100 iluminated. i have mainly owned schmidts in the past (and still own one now) and meopta's are as good as them all day long. i have never used a meostar so i cant comment on them directly but i would put money on them being a fantastic scope go for it i dont think you will be disapointed

    I have the Meostar in question. I also have a Schmidt & Bender and occasionally use the boss' rifle complete with a Swarovski. They are as good quality no question.

    They do. It is the only one Conquest with the reticule #8 in first focal plane.

    I had a Meopta Meostar R1 3-12x56, and I found it was not as optically clear and sharp as my a Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50, so I sold it before even mounting it on a rifle. I'm particularly impressed with the Conquest range, and a buddy's Conquest 3.5-10x50 compared favourably with my 3x more expensive Zeiss Victory 3-12x56.
    To my eyes the Meopta isn't in the same league.
