Who has tried one, specifically the 2.5-10? I'd like to know how it stacks up against other popular hunting scopes. Any comparisons or range reports would be appreciated.

Very good glass but heavy if I remember correctly, but very good glass tends to increase weight of the scope. I think the glass is on par or very close to Swaro and love that magnification range on a hunting rig

It's hard to belive how few reviews there are on this scope. It seems like an affordable scope with glass that compares to Swarovski would have a ton of hype.

That's my favorite magnification for a hunting rig too. cheers

they are flying under the radar . They mostly private label for cabela's and such. They ARE FINE. Check Europtics, They are very good to deal with, ask for Keefer, tell him Buzz gave you the secret knock up

Meopta made the Zeiss Conquest scopes for Zeiss. When the OEM contract expired, Meopta started making them under the Meopro name. They also made the Zeiss Diascope T FL spotting scopes for Zeiss for a while. The box even had "Made in Czech Republic" on it. Meopta makes world class stuff no doubt.

Meopros are very nice scopes for the money. I have a few and have been very happy with them. The Meostar binoculars are also a great buy.

I have two of the Meopro 3.5-10x44 scopes with the #4 reticle. Bought them from Camera Land when they started the sale in 2014. They are my favorite scope and the best I can afford. I also own a pair of Meopro 10x42 HD binoculars. They are spectacular but the only binos I've owned were bubble pack so they should be spectacular.

For my eyes my Meopro scopes blow my VX-3 out of the water in low light and are slightly better than my 3-9x40 Conquest.

I have been a Leupold fan for 40+ years. I decided to try the 3.5x10x44 Meopro at the end of 2015 and was really impressed. Optics clarity excellent, low light excellent, the only thing I was not thrilled about is the plex reticle. The reticle is a little thinner than the Leupold standard plex. Very good scope for the money. You may want to give Doug a call at Camera

Lucky you booradley. If you ever decide you want something different please keep me in mind on the German #4.

Blessings,
