The 3-12x56 Meostar R1 Riflescope offers a versatile magnification range, and excellent light transmission abilities. The massive 56mm objective performs well in twilight conditions, even when you zoom up to maximum power. The profile of this scope is outstanding, with its statuesque front bell, and 30mm main tube. As impressive as it looks, this scope performs just as well in the field; nitrogen purging eliminates the negative effects of dynamic climates, while state-of-the-art multicoating upon each air-to-glass surface ensures edge-to-edge sharpness, and a clear line of sight regardless of the sun's angle of incidence. Mechanically, this Meostar performs with world-class precision. The internal adjustments are machined with extremely close tolerances, and set with rectifying tension that's engineered to keep your point of zero accurate, and repeatable.
To use a riflescope with your firearm, you'll need a mounting base and mounting rings in addition to the scope itself. Bases attach to your firearm and rings attach to your scope. Proper spacing of the rings, as well as the ring height should be considered to ensure a proper line of sight can be established. This will maximize the value of your investment, and enhance your shooting experience. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.
- Meostar's Multicoatings
- Extremely high (99.8%) levels of light transmission per glass surface with a proprietary IMB-5501 anti reflective coatings & ION assisted application process.
- The Meostar Finish
- Aircraft aluminum alloy construction with a bead blasted exterior & "Elox" anodizing process ensures an extremely durable and non-reflective finish.
- #4 Reticle in the Second Focal Plane
Three long posts at 3, 6, & 9 o'clock direct your vision directly to the center. A single vertical stadia and fine cross hairs intersect to indicate your exact point of aim. The central opening, or 'gate', is intentionally narrow for efficient target acquisition against dark & distracting backgrounds.
Second focal plane positioning of the reticle maintains its size throughout the magnification range (non-magnifying)
