Yes, they look like a great scope, but the eye relief is where a lot of Euro scope stop unfortunately. I would be happy with it on my 375H&H, but I would be uncomfortable with it on anything bigger than that.Leica Magnus 1-6.3x24i has an eye relief of 90 mm / 3.5 inch
I bought one a week ago and took it to the shooting range for the first time this morning.
In my search for a new driven hunt rifle scope, I did not come across any model with a longer eye relief than 95 mm / 3.7 inch.
I have seen a lot of people recommending the Trijicon scopes in the past. But it seems like the Accupoint eye relief has changed at some time, because all the current specification list I find with google list the eye relief as 3.2 inches.I would throw the Trijicon Accupoint TR24 1-4 out there too. No complicated reticle or battery yet an excellent low light option for those who like that.
Hi mate, if you look at the OP, I asked about scopes with "eye relief that is suitable for the heavy recoiling rifles". Right now my biggest rifles are 416 and 500, but I left the question deliberately open ended. I wasnt so much asking what scope should I put on rifle X. I was really asking is there something out there on the market that meets my brief that I have missed. Based on the options that people have posted, I am thinking the answer is "no", which is disappointing.What rifle are you looking to mount a scope on? You mentioned 9.3x64 in this thread. I really can’t see need for excessive eye relief on 416 and under.
I think No is sadly the answer. It’s only getting worse too.Hi mate, if you look at the OP, I asked about scopes with "eye relief that is suitable for the heavy recoiling rifles".

I just put one, but with the duplex reticle, on a 9.3x62. Love it so far. Thinking of putting one on my .458 Lott.Just ordered a Trijicon Accupoint 1x6x24, Model TR25 with a German #4 reticle/green dot, for my Model 70 375. Reviews seem pretty good. Supposed to be better optically and more eye relief than the TR24 1x4 model. Hope it works out. Anybody have any experience with the TR 25 model???
I have had the same issue with some Meopta scopes, including that one. Wonder if the oversized knobs might not be a plus in cold weather with heavy gloves. The scope went on another rifle without problems.Unfortunately those options illustrate my point, as none have the eye relief I am looking for.
I actually bought one of the Optica 6 and was very excited to mount it on my 9.3x64. But when I tried to use it I found the power zoom knob is so over size that the bolt handle would not clear the scope. When I emailed the store about it, their advise was to use higher mounts, which is a totally useless answer
Yes, I realise thats an option. My main concerns are:For DG and heavy recoiling rifles why not red dots? One will not be shooting them hundreds of yards away.
Heck, I have even used them for a bear some years back.
I had one of these Meopta R2 scopes on my Win 70 .375. No issues on bolt clearance or ejection interference with low Warne QD mounts and bases. Great scopes. Way better glass than the Optika line as well.
Very nice glad to see em around in the wildYes, Zastava when they first came out with left hand models after the civil war, so late 1990s, early 2000s.
