Meopta Monday! ZD 6-24×56 RD Riflescope Now Available with MIL Turrets

Meopta is pleased to introduce the newest model 30mm ZD 6-24×56 RD riflescope with resettable 1/10 milliradian (MIL) windage and elevation turrets.  This is in addition to the introductory model with ¼ MOA turrets and both feature the illuminated MilDot II reticle.

Designed for sniper rifles, the Meopta ZD 6-24×56 RD is a precision long-range riflescope that allows shooters to achieve deadly-accurate shot placement at extreme distances. This scope features a 30mm one-piece, aircraft-grade aluminum alloy tube.  The new MilDot II RD illuminated reticle, located in the second focal plane with integrated range-finding markers, is calibrated for accurate target estimation in standard calibers  – 7.62×52 NATO, .308, .338WM and 12.7mm.  The turret mounted parallax adjustment ranges from 27 yards to infinity, guaranteeing precision aiming at any desired range.

Meopta’s proprietary MeoBright™ lens multi-coatings eliminate glare and reflections and deliver 99.7 percent light transmission per lens surface while the MeoQuick™ fast-focus eyepiece rapidly brings targets into sharp focus.  MeoShield™ ion-assisted coating protects external lens surfaces for enhanced resistance to scratching and abrasion in extreme conditions and meets military specifications for durability and surface hardness.  This scope also features an anodized exterior for scratch resistance and is waterproof, shockproof and fogproof for maximum performance and durability.  The ZD 6-24×56 is covered by Meopta’s North American lifetime transferable warranty.
