Anyone have any experience with this new lineup of Meoptas? I like them and already have an Artemis, Meopro, and a Meostar. I am thinking of upgrading one of my 1" tube scopes to a 30mm Meopta Optika6. I was surprised at the prices...very reasonable for good German glass. My eyes are getting older and am considering their 4C reticle which has an illuminated center dot. Thoughts?

I think Buzz had one on order. Maybe it came in and he can give input. Price seems a little too good to me. I'm wondering if the glass is as good. I have a Meopro 6X and the glass is better than any of my other scopes.

Not that it matters to your decision but I believe Meopta is a Czech company, no?

Thanks for that link....interesting review. I am very happy with the Meoptas I have now and will almost surely drop some coin on a new Optika6. Yes, they are a Czech company and they also make the glass for others such as Zeiss. I guess I have a tendency to refer to the European scopes (Swarovski, etc.) as "German".

Meopta has always made stuff for other "high end European" manufacturers without getting much of the credit. I'm glad to see they're jumping into the tactical scope arena to grab the market share they deserve with a good product at a good price. Some mfg's sell a warranty with a scope to go along with it (cough... Vortex.) The Optika 6 line is almost certainly going to be a better product for the consumer at similar price points.

If they get the right reticle choices out there and they track well from a mechanical standpoint, they'll sell a ton of them.

getting tired of waiting, I ordered a Bushnell Forge from Cabelas, its on BACKORDER too. Got a SCREAMING deal on the Bushy, we'll see if Cabelas can fill my order.

Meanwhile the Meopta rep for the USA told me this yesterday

Not to my knowledge, no. Production is meeting the highest demands first so the 3-18 and 2.5-15 are biggest priority right now. 5-30s are starting to show up as well, so the Dichro 4.5-27s are not far behind.

Got my Optika6 3-18x56 Dichro in yesterday. Was gonna have it replace a Bushnell Forge 4.5-27 but not so convinced. Glass seems about equal to me but haven't shot it yet.
