HAUPPAUGE, NY, February 9, 2017 – The Meopta MeoPro 6.5-20×50 riflescopes have been named Editor’s Choice by Petersen’s Hunting. Here is what the editors had to say about the MeoPro scopes in the magazine’s 2017 Annual Gear Issue.

“Whether you’re trying to knock down a faraway bull or punch a cloverleaf in paper at 500 yards, the new 6.5-20×50 riflescopes from Meopta are purpose-built for long-range precision. Available with capped hunting turrets or exposed target turrets for tactical or target shooting applications, these American-made optics feature one-inch tubes with MeoBright multicoated lenses, SCHOTT glass, and side-parallax adjustment to provide extreme clarity and accuracy at extreme distances.”

The MeoPro 6.5-20×50 is available with four different reticle options to meet a variety of shooters’ needs: Z-Plex, BDC, McWhorter HV and Windmax 8. These second focal plane reticles are non-magnifying and cover less of the target as power is increased. The HTR (Hunt/Tactical/Range) version of this scope features exposed targets turrets and is offered in addition to the hunting version with capped turrets.

“We truly appreciate the time the editors of Petersen’s Hunting take to test products throughout the year and are honored that they have chosen our MeoPro 6.5-20×50 riflescopes for this prestigious award,” said Reinhard Seipp, general manager and chief operating officer of Meopta USA. “The MeoPro 6.5-20×50 is an all-purpose, long-range scope that is an outstanding choice for hunting varmint, predators or big game while the HTR version, in addition to being a great hunting scope, is also excellent for tactical applications and target shooting when precision is paramount.”

Designed for the American market, MeoPro riflescopes deliver exceptional optical and mechanical performance. The 50mm objective lens, MeoBright™ multi-coated lenses, and SCHOTT glass deliver unsurpassed clarity and high contrast for seeing detail from afar, while the brightness of this scope gives hunters extra precious minutes of shooting time in the low light of dawn and dusk when it matters most.

Made of rugged aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, this scope is built to withstand heavy recoil. Eye relief is constant at 3.5 inches and the quick-focus eyepiece ensures a crisp, clear and sharp image. This scope also features ¼ MOA windage and elevation adjustments and is waterproof, fog proof and shockproof. Like all Meopta optics, the MeoPro 6.5-20×50 and MeoPro 6.5-20×50 HTR are backed by Meopta’s North American Lifetime Transferrable Warranty.

Meopta MeoPro HD 80 Spotting Scope Wins Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice Award

HAUPPAUGE, NY, May 16, 2016 – The Meopta MeoPro HD 80 spotting scope is the winner of this year’s Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice award in the spotting scope category. Beating out 11 competitors for this prestigious award – one of the largest fields in years – the MeoPro HD 80 impressed the test team with its “crystal clear Schott glass, high-speed center-barrel focus, and very appealing price”.

The MeoPro HD 80 is assembled in the United States at Meopta’s Long Island, New York facility using Czech components and is a favorite amongst guides and hunters who appreciate exceptional performance and durability in addition to stylish design.

Here are excerpts from the June-July 2016 issue of Outdoor Life:
“Most high-end spotting scopes ship with a variable-power eyepiece that can be swapped out for a fixed-power unit (usually 30X) that’s sold separately. The fixed-power eyepiece generally has better light transmission and field-of-view than the zoom. The problem is, few hunters actually buy the second eyepiece, so the versatility of the system is offset by the additional cost and dust-introducing components of the detachment mechanism.
Meopta has addressed this problem with the MeoPro 80, a lovely 80mm spotter that has an integrated, non-removable 20X–60X eyepiece. The simplicity of the scope allows Meopta to bring the MeoPro to market at about two-thirds of the cost of its flagship spotting scope, the 82mm MeoStar S2. But we found the MeoPro has nearly identical optical performance to its big brother.
It was runner-up in the 12-scope field for low-light performance. The MeoPro wowed the test team with its edge clarity, brightness, and durability. In a competitive field of high-power units, the Meopta was the spotter that testers reached for most frequently when they wanted to glass bull elk on a mountainside miles away, or to assess hits on our 600-yard rifle target.”
“We are honored that a Meopta optic has once again been named Editor’s Choice by the Outdoor Life test team,” said Reinhard Seipp, general manager and COO of Meopta USA. “We truly appreciate the time and effort the editors put into the rigorous testing of optics year after year, and it is very gratifying when experts like these recognize our efforts to produce exceptional optics at an attractive price point.”
