I have two Nikon scopes. One is a conventional type (Monarch), the other is a handgun scope, mounted on my "scout" rifle. They are both excellent, in my opinion. They are both very clear and bright, seem very well made, the windage and elevation adjustments seem accurate and they both hold zero perfectly. Neither of these scopes cost as much as my car, as well (unlike some brands). All in all, I think Nikons are great scopes.
I bought a used Buckmaster 3-9-40 and put it on my Tikka 243.
It is clear enough for what I do. My next will be the Monarch UCC.
I have a Bush 3200 Elite 4-12-40AO on an Anschutz 22 sport repeater. I still like the clarity of the Nikon better :wink:
I have a Buckmaster 4.5x14 40
on a 10fp Heavy BBL
can take out a 32oz big gul "U" at 600 yards.
I shoulda waited for the side parallax adj. rather than the one on the end.
Just 'cause you cannot put flip covers on it .
Id sell it If I dont have to shell out more than 75 bux for a newer model. It is only 2 months old.
