Ideal for close quarter engagements, three-gun competitions, and plinking varmints at distance, the Meopta 1.5-6x42 MeoStar R1 RD SFP Riflescope has a low magnification that provides near-reflex-sight performance on 1.5x power. With its wide field of view, simple reticle layout, and fast target acquisition for reacting when unexpected opportunities present themselves it still offers a 1:4 zoom to clearly see and identify targets at longer ranges. Complementing the zoom range are anti-reflection lens coatings that maximize light transmission, precisely-aligned optical components, and a fast focus system that work together to produce views with sharp resolution and high contrast in all light conditions.

Ideal for close quarter engagements, three-gun competitions, and plinking varmints at distance, the Meopta 1.5-6x42 MeoStar R1 RD SFP Riflescope has a low magnification that provides near-reflex-sight performance on 1.5x power. With its wide field of view, simple reticle layout, and fast target acquisition for reacting when unexpected opportunities present themselves it still offers a 1:4 zoom to clearly see and identify targets at longer ranges. Complementing the zoom range are anti-reflection lens coatings that maximize light transmission, precisely-aligned optical components, and a fast focus system that work together to produce views with sharp resolution and high contrast in all light conditions.

The reticle, located on the second (rear) focal plane, has a simple duplex crosshair design with a ballistic drop compensation tree on the lower vertical axis that helps you place shots accurately at different distances and a clearly defined red center aiming dot with seven selectable intensity levels. Capped low-profile turrets provide precise 1/4 MOA per click impact point correction with 95 MOA windage and elevation adjustment ranges that allow you to precisely place your shots at distance. The turrets are outfitted with Meopta's MeoTrak II control system that provides positive tactile and audible clicks, so you don't have to take your eyes off your target to make accurate adjustments.

To withstand the repeated recoil of regular use, the one-piece maintube is made of lightweight, strong aluminum with a robust 30mm diameter. At just 12 inches long, and weighing 18.9 ounces, the overall form factor of the scope won't add excessive weight or bulk to your rifle, so you can move quickly and maneuver it with ease. The housing is nitrogen filled to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging in extreme conditions and temperatures.

Optical Performance

  • 1:4 zoom produces a wide field of view almost equivalent to a reflex sight on low 1.5x power for fast both-eyes-open shooting techniques in close quarters, with the ability to increase the magnification for accurate medium- to longer-range shots on 6x power
  • Large 42mm objective lens provides the light gathering capability that ensures views remain bright and crisp in challenging conditions
  • Ion-assisted MeoBright multicoating pushes light transmission to 99.8% and delivers enhanced low-light performance while suppressing reflection and glare
  • MeoShield external lens coating protects external lens surfaces to resist scratching and abrasion
  • Proprietary lens grinding technique matches each lens element for precise optical alignment
  • 67.2-foot field of view at 1000 yards on 1.5x power, 20.4-foot on 6x

BDC 3 Reticle Design

  • Etched on glass for durability and precise optical alignment
  • Second (rear) focal plane placement: Reticle size remains constant as magnification changes making it faster to get on target at close range on 1.5x power and making the aiming point easier to see at 6x
  • Modified duplex design presents a clear and uncluttered field of view
  • Easy-to-see center red aiming dot is clearly visible in all light conditions and at all magnifications
  • Short thick posts direct the eye toward the center hairs, and can be used for large targets at close range
  • Long center hairs are ideal for medium to long ranges for accurate shot placement without obstruction targets or interfering with the field of view
  • Ballistic drop compensation lines on the bottom vertical axis enable precise shot placement at different distances, subtensions are accurate at any magnification
  • Dedicated reticle brightness adjustment turret offers seven intensity options with "off" positions between each level to make it easy and fast to return to the user's preferred level
  • Runs on one included CR2032 battery

Use and Handling

  • MeoQuick fast focus system brings subjects into sharp focus with a wide dioptric correction range to adjust to individual eyesight, even if it's not perfect
  • M46.5x0.75 objective lens threads allow the use of specialty filters like polarizing or neutral density to improve the view and contrast when using on or near water and snow
  • MeoTrak II turret system provides positive tactile feedback and audible clicks ensure accurate adjustments without having to look away from the eyepiece
  • Low-profile capped turrets won't get fouled by water, dirt, dust, or debris while reducing snag hazards when moving through thick brush and branches
  • 1/4 MOA per click impact point correction
  • Wide 95 MOA windage and elevation adjustment range
  • Long eye relief at all magnifications provides a generous eye box to reduce eye strain and improve comfort
  • Ultra-wide exit pupil at all magnifications ensures views remain bright and clear, even in challenging conditions

Construction Details

  • 30mm maintube provides the strength required to hold up against repeated recoil from high-caliber rifles
  • Lightweight and strong aluminum alloy housing
  • Non-reflective scratch-resistant black anodized finish
  • Erector system is engineered to provide maximum holding force for heavy recoils
  • Nitrogen-filled and sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature and environmental conditions
  • Length: 13.5"
  • Weight: 20.6 oz
