It is by far our best selling line of scopes and we sell some good stuff. Swarovski, Zeiss, Leupold, Bushnell elite, Nikon, Meopta. We very very seldom have a problem with Meopta scopes.

IMO the two best scopes for the money in a high end scope are currently Meopta meostar and Bushnell elite 6500. Both will run $700 - $800 give or take and are amazingly clear, crisp, and bright. I honestly prefer the 6500 though. It has a very generous eye relief, about 4 inches,that stays very very constant all the way through the magnification range. It's magnification range of adjustmentis 6.5 times. I took a Swarovski Z6 2-12X50 and a Bushnell 6500 2.5-16X50 out right at dusk and looked through both side by side and my eye could hardly tell a difference in clarity and brightness. $700 vs. $1800. A no brainer for me.

The 6500 is definetly worth checking out.

The R-1 Meostars are great. They have very good glass and are tough! My only dislikes with them are short ER and not much of a reticle selection. I've not played with the 3-12 X 56 though.
