The 4-12x40 Meostar R1 Riflescope offers a versatile magnification range with and excellent light transmission abilities. The 40mm objective performs well in twilight conditions, even when you zoom up to maximum power. The profile of this scope is somewhat conservative, with its moderate front bell, and 30mm main tube.
It’s conservative appearance belies its true nature somewhat; this scope delivers outstanding optical performance, thanks to Meopta’s optical genius and proprietary multicoating technology. This state-of-the-art multicoating process is layered upon each air-to-glass surface to ensure edge-to-edge sharpness, and a clear line of sight regardless of the sun’s angle of incidence. Further refinement of the sight picture comes to your eye via dry-nitrogen purging of the robust 30mm main-tube, which eliminates the negative effects of dynamic climates.
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.
