Meopta ZD Tactical rifle scopes are designed for use in harsh environment, on rifles from military, law enforcement or police. Two ZD Tactical rifle scopes have exposed tactical turrets, for quick elevation and windage corrections when shooting on different distances, and one model (ZD Tactical 4-16x44 RD) has capped turrets. These caps protect the tactical turrets underneath, from accidental movement.
The zoom factor on these rifle scopes is 4 times, and the main tube is made from a single piece aircraft-grade aluminum. The clamping diameter is either 30 mm (ZD Tactical 4-16x44 and ZD Tactical 6-24x56 RD) or 34 mm. The finish on those rifle scopes is ˝ELOX˝ hard anodized for a durable, scratch-resistant black finish.
The reticle is set in the second focal plane (reticle size doesn't change with magnification) for less target coverage at bigger magnifications, or in the first focal plane (reticle size changes with magnification), so the reticle can be used for target distance measurements, easy windage and elevation correction, or even shooting without clicking the turrets on any magnification (ZD Tactical 3-12x50 RD). The reticle is illuminated in all ZD Tactical models, and the illumination control is located on the opposite side of the windage turret, or on the ocular (ZD Tactical 6-24x56). The illumination is night-time usable and even daylight bright. Both options are easily reachable and can be used also with gloves.
Meopta ZD Tactical rifle scopes feature a parallax control unit, for focusing on targets o different distances, and eliminating the parallax error of the reticle. The ZD Tactical 4-16x44 RD model has an adjustable objective ring, and other two models, have a third turret on the left side of the rifle scopes (when looking from the eyepiece).
All lens in the ZD Tactical rifle scopes are multi-coated with the ˝MeoBright 5501˝ coating for best low-light performance, resolution, and contrast. The outer lens surfaces have an additional coating, which makes them more durable and scratch-resistant. The complete rifle scope is filled with nitrogen, so the lens won't fog internally at low temperatures.
Because of the sealing, these rifle scopes are completely waterproof, even if they are submerged under water. The entire construction is very durable and shock-proof, so all Meopta ZD Tactical rifle scopes can be used on the strongest calibers like the .50 BMG. The long warranty of 30 years speaks also for the good quality of those rifle scopes, and the price for such quality rifle scopes is very decent
The Meopta ZD Tactical rifle scopes can be mounted with 30 mm or 34 mm rings.
