Meopta Optika 5 Review

Unfortunately, the biggest outdoor fair in Europe didn't take place yet because of the spreading virus, but Meopta Optika s.r.o. did provide us with all the news for 2020 from their side. The Optika 6 rifle scopes are a great success, and because of that Meopta chose to introduce a completely new series of rifle scopes with a zoom factor of 5x, named Meopta Optika 5.

Meopta Optika 5 VS MeoPro

The Meopta Optika 5 line of rifle scopes is a successor line of the well-known MeoPro scopes series which comprises 3x zoom factor rifle scopes designed for hunting. Like the older generation, Optika 5 rifle scopes feature capped turrets for protection against accidental movement of the internal adjustment. The turrets are now zero-resettable. This is especially handy if the user changes the ammunition or attaches a silencer, moving the point of impact. The clicks on the turrets are in ¼ MOA, so 1 click shifts the reticle for 7 mm at 100 meters.

The main tube diameter on Optika 5 scopes is 1 inch, which is the same as on the older generation, and with 160 cm (63 MOA) elevation range at 100 meters it can be used on any rifle. Thanks to the same main tube diameter, the rifle scopes can be exchanged without the need for a new mount. According to the 2020 product list forwarded to us, the main tube is now made of magnesium, so the housing is very strong and durable.

Optika 5 Configurations

The Meopta Optika 5 rifle scopes will be available in 6 different versions, each designed for a different purpose:

Meopta Optika 5 Illumination Reticle

Except for the Optika 5 4-20x50 RD, all rifle scopes have a non-illuminated reticle – the letters RD stand for Red Dot. The reticle in all models is positioned in the second focal plane, so it stays the same on all magnifications.

Meopta will offer 4 different reticles:

  1. Z-Plex,
  2. Zplus,
  3. Zplus RD and
  4. BDC 3 RD.

Does Meopta use Schott glass?

Meopta did a really good job with the Schott glass and coatings since all Optika 5 rifle scopes offer a 91% light transmission rate. All glass elements are fully multi-coated with the MeoBright coating to ensure a maximum light transmission rate, and the outer lenses are additionally coated with the MeoDrop coating. This is a proprietary hydrophobic lens coating that repels water, grease and skin oils from the surface.

Other Details

Rifle scopes with a magnification of 15x or higher will feature a side parallax adjustment, so the user can sharpen the image from 10 yards (9 meters) to infinity. All rifle scopes come with a throw lever for a faster magnification change.

Meopta Optika 5 Price

Like the Meopta Optika 6 rifle scopes, the Optika 5 offers a lot of features for the price. The price depends on the model, but it goes from 349.99 USD up to 549.99 USD. The Meopta Optika 5 rifle scopes will be a great replacement for the older MeoPro series since you get a lot more zoom, which helps for all-round hunting applications.

  1. Meopta's Optika6 line of scopes is pretty amazing. I can see nothing but great things for the Optika5 line of riflescopes. The 5X zoom should be perfect for what hunters are looking for in an optic. Being able to dial in the reticle using Strelok is a huge bonus.
