Glass From The Old Country - Meopta
DSC´s Game Trails - GUNS and SHOOTING by Wayne Van Zwoll
Glass From The Old Country
Founded in the 18th century and now part of the Czech Republic, Prerov is an industrial center. It has 45,000 residents, of which 2,500 work at Meopta. This firm is hardly as well known as its venerable competition in Germany and Austria, but Meopta is bigger than most U.S. shooters think. That´s largely because only a quarter of its business has to do with sporting optics. Military contracts account for less than 10 percent of sales. More than half the products serve industry. Meopta fashion prisms for Abrams tanks, and windshields for Boeing and Northrup-Grumman aircraft.
