Talking Which scope?

Well I've decided on this years new rifle, just can't seem to decide on the scope...

It is between the meopta 3-12x56 meostar, or the trijicon accupoint 2.5-10x56.
I got the same meopta on
Last years rifle and I really like it, should I stay with the meopta or jump ship? I know nothing about the trijicon rifle scopes aside from the ACOG.

HELP???

Hey bud. I can't speak for the accupoint. The lighted recticle wiuld be cool. Never looked fhrough one though.
As for the meostar, I have a meopta meostar 3-10x50 that I bought myself for Christmas in 2010. I have. Since bought a zeiss conquest 3-9x40 and already had a leupold and the meopta is definetly is the clearest during lowlight. My next nice scope will be another meostar.
Good luck with the decision. If you get the trijicon, I want to come look through it. P.S. what rifle did you decide to put it on?

I got a Meopta on Logan's BAR and like it...I've also looked through a Trijicon before and the glass was clear as a bell. I'd say ifin you already have a Meopta on a rifle go w/ Trijicon....My next deer rifle will be getting 1....

I have a few meopta meostars and like all of them a lot. I have a 3x12x56 on my 7mag. It's very clear and asorbs a lot of light at dusk. I can definitely tell the difference between it and my 50mm meoptas and its way better than my 50mm Varix3. I have the german 4 and 4a reticles in all my meoptas.

Sam, it's going on another sako. This one is the finnlight 30.06, I have a 300wsm sako with a meostar 3-12-56 just was thinking that I like the concept of the trijicon. I don't know what I'll do.

I guess I like what Jason said....try something new and then we can come over and check it out.... My Meopta is on a Sako A7. Sucker is accuate but I am still a Savage fan at heart since Sako isn't made in the USA. Good luck with the decision. Keep us updated

I got rid of my steyr to get the sako... Sako is much better made, the lockup is as smooth as I every seen. And I have never,never seen a rifle out of the box any where near as accurate...

I think the trijicon is a better choice. It seems much brighter and clear. Find a place that sells both and look through them pointing at a dark corner not a window. You can see the difference then. Or put another grand with it and get a Schmidt and bender! Good luck with the purchase.
