Outdoor Life Names Meopta Optika5 2-10×42 Best Overall Riflescope Under $500

Meopta Sport Optics is excited to announce its Optika5 2-10×42 riflescope has been named “Best Overall Riflescope Under $500” by Outdoor Life.

The Outdoor Life optics test team spends countless hours each year rigorously testing riflescopes for tracking, optical quality, and precision. Their results are closely followed by dealers and consumers alike.

In describing the Optika5 2-10×42, Andrew McKean, Outdoor Life Hunting, Conservation, and Optics Editor said, “…what you get in the Meopta is a better class of glass than most of the other scopes in this budget category, very responsive controls and both durability and versatility. This scope can transition from your mid-range deer rifle to a rimfire plinker and could even serve on a turkey shotgun in a pinch.”

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award for our Optika5 2-10×42 which is a great all-around riflescope that performs well above its price point,” said Erik Muller, Meopta Sport Optics Product Specialist. “Customers appreciate the excellent low-light performance, European-quality optics, ruggedness, and precision this scope delivers.”

Available in 2-10×42 PA (parallax adjustment), 2-10×42, 3-15×44, 4-20×44, 4-20×50, and 4-20×50 RD models, Optika5 riflescopes feature a 1-inch main tube, 5x zoom, zero-reset turrets, and advanced MeoBright lens coatings that deliver edge-to-edge clarity and bright, sharp images.

All come with capped hunting turrets made of rubber-armored metal for the perfect combination of durability and functionality. The rear-facing magnification display allows for easy viewing of the power setting from behind the scope, and the zoom ring comes with a multi-position throw lever for quick adjustment of the power setting in the field. Windage and elevation adjustments are ¼ MOA. Reticle options are available in the second focal plane.
