For the money, the scope is very good. The new ones especially, as they have 92% light transmission. To top it off, you can get them with mil-dots, and new this year, SIDE FOCUS!!!! All for a very good price.
Down side - Non one-piece tube (unless they changed that this year also). But they are warranteed and 100% fogproof/shockproof (what ever that means to each manufacturer). The report has been good quality and no problems. The other down side "might" be steel on brass adjustments, the brass is fairly soft and may wear out over long use and lots of adjustment changes. But that is also covered under the lifetime warranty.
This is the scope (with SF) that is slated to be used on the SC2 SWS and I will be doing a thorough review for the site as soon as they become available (end of april)
Hi JB I think the Nikon is a good pick I have been looking for a good scope for my rifle and it was down to Nikon or nightforce I went for the nightforce but it was real close.
The two big pluses for these two scopes wear clarity and tracking
Just my two cents.
Some good info!
I'm shooting a buckmaster now but it only has a
nikoplex reticle, it works but I realy need a mil-dot
for all the reasons those who have used one know.
This rifle that its going on is a mule in respect to recoil.
Sorry JB about my reply to spade :wink: I hope you find the scope that fits your needs a lot a scopes will work fine it comes down to personal preference I have some old friends that swear by their bushnell or weavers so as long as your happy with the rifle scope combo that’s all that counts.
I'm kinda glad you guy's brought this up. Every scope I've ever owned has been a $75 Simmons, Wal-Mart special. I really don't know much about quality optics and I don't have a lot of money to spend. I'm thinking about getting either a Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14 with mil dots and TT, A 3-9 Burris fullfield II with B-plex reticle, Leupold PR, or a Weaver Tactical (Natchez has em for like $350 +/-) or V Series. From what I hear, there all pretty good.
Okay, the nikon buckmaster 4.5-14x40mm Mildot with side focus showed up in my distributors location this morning. I placed one on order and should have it hear the beginning of next week. I'll do a review on the scope, and hopefully use it on the SC2 SWS....
