Meopta recently introduced its new 30mm ZD 6-24x56 RD riflescope. Designed for precision, tactical rifles, the ZD 6-24x56 RD allows shooters to achieve 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 NATO/.308 Win., .338 Win. Mag. and .50 BMG.  The turret mounted parallax adjustment ranges from 27 yards to infinity, guaranteeing precision aiming at any desired range. 

Meopta’s advanced RD illumination system control is located on the ocular of this scope.  The push button control allows the user to choose between seven reticle intensity settings to adjust for varying light conditions from extremely low light to bright daytime sunlight.  Intermediate off positions between every setting allows the user to quickly find their preferred illumination setting.  If the illumination control is not used in three hours, illumination automatically turns off to prolong battery life. 

The ZD 6-24x56 RD features Meopta’s MeoTrak II posi-click windage and elevation turrets delivering precise ¼-MOA click adjustments with superior repeatability, unparalleled tracking capability and ultimate accuracy.  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 6-24x56 is covered by Meopta’s North American lifetime transferable warranty.
