A new Optika5 2-10×42 PA Riflescope From Meopta

There’s a new addition to the Meopta Optikar rifle scope series. This one’s 1-20×42 with parallax adjustment from 10 yards on there, and it can be synced to the Strelok Pro app too. 

Here’s what they tell us. 

Meopta Optika5 riflescope

Meopta Sport Optics is excited to introduce the new Optika5 2-10×42 PA riflescope with side parallax adjustment (PA) from 10 yards to infinity. This versatile riflescope delivers sharp image focus at close ranges – a feature rimfire and air rifle enthusiasts will appreciate – and gives hunters and target shooters the ability to dial in focus at longer ranges. 

Engineered to withstand heavy recoil, this newest addition to the Optika5 series is also designed for performance on centerfire, muzzleloader, and slug guns – making it an excellent choice for hunting various species from varmints to the big game. In addition, it can be used with the Strelok Pro ballistic app and is built tough enough to handle the extreme bi-directional recoil of spring-piston air rifles.

Meopta says, “One part of a final quality check 👉 – 40°C deep-freezing in a shock freezer, testing possible nitrogen leakages and perfect function of all moving parts before packaging and expedition to customer.❄️”


The Optika5 2-10×42 PA features a 1-inch main tube diameter, 5x zoom, zero-reset turrets, and advanced lens coatings for accurate color representation and unsurpassed low-light performance in its class. Meopta’s proprietary MeoBright lens coating delivers maximum light transmission per lens surface while suppressing reflection and glare, giving hunters and shooters the advantage of crisp images with optimal contrast.

In addition, images are clear even in the rain thanks to Meopta’s MeoDrop hydrophobic lens coating, which aggressively repels water and makes it easy to wipe off grease, skin oils, and dirt.

Capped hunting turrets are made of rubber-armored metal for the perfect combination of durability and functionality. The rear-facing magnification display allows for easy viewing of the power setting from behind the scope, and the zoom ring comes with a throw lever for quick adjustment of the power setting in the field or on the range. Windage and elevation adjustments are ¼ MOA. Two-second focal plane reticles are available – Z-Plex or Z-Plus.

The Optika5 series is also available in 2-10×42, 3-15×44, 4-20×44, 4-20×50, and 4-20×50 RD models. Reticles options for the 4-20×50 RD with an illuminated red dot in the center are Z-Plus RD or BDC 3 RD.
