New Airgun-Friendly Meopta Optika5 2-10×42 PA Riflescope
Meopta Sport Optics has introduced a new Optika5 2-10×42 PA riflescope with side parallax adjustment (PA) from 10 yards to infinity. Meopta says that this scope is exceptionally versatile and delivers razor-sharp image focus at close ranges. This feature intended specifically for air rifle shooters.
Additionally, it is built tough enough to handle the extreme bi-directional recoil of spring-piston and gas ram air rifles, Meopta tells HAM.
The Optika5 2-10×42 PA features a 1-inch main tube diameter, 5x zoom, zero-reset turrets, and advanced lens coatings for true color representation.
Meopta claims that its proprietary MeoBright lens coating delivers maximum light transmission per lens surface while suppressing reflection and glare. This gives unsurpassed low-light performance in its class. The result is crisp images with optimal contrast.
Images are clear even in the rain thanks to Meopta’s MeoDrop hydrophobic lens coating which aggressively repels water and makes it easy to wipe off grease, skin oils, and dirt.
Although HAM has not received a sample of the new Optika5 2-10X42 PA scope, we have been impressed with the optical and mechanical quality of other Meopta products. You can check-out our reviews of Meopta 10 x 42 rangefinder binoculars and the ZD 4-16×44 RD scope for examples.
Capped hunting turrets are made of rubber-armored metal for durability and functionality. Windage and elevation adjustments are ¼ MOA. The Z-Plus second focal plane reticle is the one that will be most useful to airgunners.
The rear-facing magnification display allows for easy viewing of the power setting from behind the scope, and the zoom ring comes with a throw lever for quick adjustment of the power setting in the field or on the range. Below we see a photograph of these features on a Optika6 scope (30mm tube). The appearance on the Optika5 is very similar.
The Optika5 series is also available in 2-10×42, 3-15×44, 4-20×44, 4-20×50, and 4-20×50 RD models. All Optika5 scopes are made of aircraft-grade aluminum alloy .
