Default Opinions on 3.5X10X44 Meopta Meopro

Granted, some nostalgia may be at play here. Have an old Interarms Mark X .30-06 Mauser that I'm thinking about bringing back into service after years of exile. Looking at a 44mm Meopta Meopro with a plex reticle to possibly straddle it. Own a couple of Meostars, but no Pro, so no experience there. This model scope has been discontinued by Meopta, but have found one at a great price. Certainly, it is a step below the Meostar line, but for those who have a Meopro or have had one, what is the good, bad or ugly on this scope?

MeoPro is roughly equivalent to the original Zeiss Conquest line that was manufactured by Meopta under contract to Zeiss.

What abiologist said. They are good scopes. I've got 4 3-9x40 Zeiss Conquests and one Meopta, same one you're looking at, and they are very comparable. The Meopta does have a little less eye relief than the Zeiss, though.

The Meopro is a great scope for the money. I have several Meopros and Meostars, they all have good glass but the Meostar will give you a couple more minutes of shooting light right at dark. If you didn't have them side by side you wouldn't really notice much difference.

Default Meopro

After considering the relatively short eye relief and large diameter of the Meopro eyepiece, I opted to pull out a mothballed 42mm Nikon UCC Monarch and mount it instead. Won't get quite the low light acuity of the Meo, but will have some 4" of eye relief in pretty good glass. Not too bad a complement for the old warhorse Mark-X. Will likely use this "heritage" rig on what I consider to be "historical" hunts; that is, once-in-awhile away hunts going to some of those places I hunted as a young man years ago, oftentimes not seeing another hunter all day, particularly during mid-week. Maybe nostalgia is more prevalent than I originally thought.
