Perfect target pistol scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, VA Written on December 8, 2011
This is the perfect scope for my Ruger 10-22 Charger. It is one of the coolest little scopes I have ever had.

The 1-MOA dot is crisp and the 10 brightness stages allow the user to adjust to changing light conditions.

These scopes are NOT for tactical or applications that experience high recoil. According to Nikon this is a target / hunting optics system. However I think it is safe to say it is optimal for match pistol, plinking and varmint hunting applications where smaller caliber, lower recoil munitions are used.
Pros: Adjustable Dot Size & Brightness; Accurate
Cons: Not for magnum pistols / high-power rifles...
Would recommend: Yes

Monarch Dot Sight VSD Matte 1, 4, 6, 8, 10 MOA Dot

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AZ Written on August 13, 2011
Excellent value, clear optics, nice crisp dot at all settings, fast easy target aquisition - the multiple brightness settings are good also. Doesn't get washed out in bright sunlight. So far holding setup very well on high recoil rifle. Only thing that would make it better would be a 2 mil dot size - but even with out it - it's a great sight. OpticsPlanet has fast shipping good service.
Pros: clear optics, crisp dot at all setting. great value
Cons: A 2 mil dot setting would be nice...

Nikon Red Dot

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on July 25, 2011
This Nikon Monarch red dot sight costs a little more, but is well worth the money. Ideal for target shooting with the variable MOA sight reticles and brightness controls. Crisp red dot and clear vision. Constructed well as you would expect from Nikon. Easy to set up with the built in weaver mount. Should work equally well with .22 rimfire to high caliber rifle.
Pros: Constructed well; works as promised.
Cons: Flip up lens covers would be better than slip ons....
Would recommend: Yes

Great sight

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on April 16, 2011
I compared many sights,this sight had the smallest and cleanest dot. I use it for Bullseye pistol matches. Have been in the money last 4 matches.
Pros: Very crisp 1 MOA dot, reasonable price.
Cons: Large dots never used, would make dots sizes 1 thru 5....
Would recommend: Yes

Nikon Monarch red dot VSD

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, PA Written on February 26, 2010
I purchased this red dod to mount on a CX4 40 S&W Carbine. Although the Carbine is light and you get some recoil with the 40 S&W its not extreme like a 44 mag or a 300+ rifle. The scope walks backwards on the mounts after 50 rounds and no matter how tight I make the mounting screws it still does. Nikon is sending me an extra set of mounting screws to try and keep it in place. I guess I expected more from a company like Nikon. A 22 mag is about the largest caliber I would recommend using this scope on.
Pros: The VSD and the clarity of the optics are great.
Cons: The mounting system on this unit is poor..it will not stand recoil...
Would recommend: No

Surprise - it's refurbished

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CO Written on March 10, 2008
They call it a factory demo, but all the docs that came with it call it factory refurbished. Warranty is only 90 days. Like the scope, and it works well so far, but they need to be more clear about what you are getting/ giving up warranty-wise....

good $ buy

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, TN Written on September 20, 2007
great scope for the $$. Good quality lens that Nikon makes. Red dot is true to sight picture and WONT MOVE. Red dot is not overbearing and doesn't "bleed". Draw backs are end screw caps for lens. If mounted on AR-15 (tactical) might want to buy weaver risers for co-witness through iron sights.
Pros: moa, windage/elevation caps, great lens
Cons: screw lens caps, may need risers for ar-15 mount for co-witness...
