Looking at a Meopta Artemis 2100 3-12x50 for $499 used or a Leupold 3-9x50 VX-R for around $540 new. Which one is the better scope? Just wanting the best illuminated dot scope for my money.

I was Meopta dealer for several years, and their optic/mechanical quality is top notch. However, all their illuminated 3-12's used to be front focal plain designs, so you might want to check out the one your looking at. I don't want to argue a front focal plane vs second focal plain advantage/disadvantage, but I don't like front focal plane reticles and they are a deal breaker for me. I do have a Leupold VX-R 2-7x33, and I love it. Great optics and the illuminated dot is one of the best I've seen. Perfect, no, but an outstanding buy for the money.

Meopta is about the best you can get for your money, but this scope if FFP, not a bad thing, just depends on what your issuing it for, but the clarity will spoil you.
