The 3-12x56 MeoStar R1 Riflescope from Meopta features a MW MV reticle, combining a fully multicoated 30mm optical path with a nitrogen-filled aluminum housing to create a close to mid-range zoom optic that is built for dependable low light and weatherproof performance. This scope's one-piece housing is machined from aerospace aluminum and anodized for increased corrosion resistance. Each lens is multicoated with Meopta's proprietary MB5501 anti-reflective coating to maximize light transmission and enhance image contrast throughout the zoom range.
This MeoStar series scope is equipped with a McWhorter MV (MW MV) reticle etched into the first focal plane. The reticle pattern has a fine crosshair with four medium-weight posts as well as ranging subtensions and bullet drop compensation lines optimized for a .308 round with a .508 ballistic coefficient at 3000 ft/sec. A first plane position makes MW MV reliable at any position along the zoom range.
Complementing the durable housing and high-transmission optics, the MeoStar 3-12x56 scope features MeoTrack II posi-click windage and elevation turrets that provide tactile and audible feedback that confirms the 1/4 MOA impact point corrections without requiring the observer to take their eye off the field of view. These turrets also employ an improved erector that uses positive resistance to ensure precise adjustments and maintain zero even when subjected to recoil from heavy caliber rifles.
Further equipping this MeoStar riflescope for years of quality service, the exposed surface of objective and ocular lenses are multicoated with a MeoShield abrasion resistant coating that protects against light scratches and helps moisture roll off the lens surface. The final elements in the MeoStar optical path belong to the MeoQuick fast-focus eyepiece, which enables rapid focus adjustment in addition to rendering edge-to-edge sharpness and a comfortable 3.3" eye relief. Each MeoStar 3-12x56 riflescope is assembled in the USA and backed by Meopta's North American Lifetime Transferable Warranty.
