“Uncommonly good glass.” “True European optics for a lot less money.”
“The Best Glass You’ve Never Heard of.” These are but a few of the
things optics aficionados have said about Meopta, which begs the
question: Why haven’t more hunters, shooters and outdoor enthusiasts
heard of the Meopta brand?
According to Reinhard Seipp, general manager of Meopta USA, much has
to do with the company’s history. “Meopta has been making precision
optics for 80 years, mostly for military forces due to the ever evolving
political circumstances of the times. As a result, the company remained
product focused for more than 50 years. They didn’t have to market
because sales channels were built in. When Meopta did start supplying
riflescopes, binoculars and spotting scopes to the hunting and outdoor
consumer market here in the United States, we initially did so as a
manufacturing partner to many of the world’s finest optical brands. Only
in the last five years have we introduced our own line of sports optics
under the Meopta brand. In light of this, it should come as no surprise
that we make great optics but have little expertise in selling them.”
Meopta is a very experienced scope company...Their scopes allways stays amongs the best in the world. ( not since the fall of comunism..) wake up !! .The americans dont know meopta products because they are com block ...and almost forbiden for YOU (not for me...Im from spain and enjoy with czech products ..like meopta and CZ since decades ago...) ...like a small proof of quality....in WW2 the SS snipers use a MEOPTA scope...and zeiss in germany made a copy of other czech scopes.
About "How do they compare with Zeiss or Leopold? ".....they are in the same quality step than german made scopes (zeiss, gerhardt, kaps or another)....and can be compared with the best leupolds (mk4, LPS and long range lines), of course are better than vari 1 / 2 / 3 leupolds.
