Eye Relief, What Eye Relief?

by Handgunner, from United States, IL Written on September 4, 2014
Took my Nikon Force XR 2X20 EER scope to a gunsmith today to be mounted on my Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter. This SA revolver comes with the solid rib machined for specially designed scope rings made by Ruger. The Nikon scope came with a nice set of flip up lens covers fore and aft. However, the rear lens cover had to go as there was so little clearance due to the height of the rings and maybe the diameter of the ocular lens.
When the scope was mounted on the handgun, at normal arms length distance from the eye, there was a great deal of vignetting of the sight picture. That is to say, the picture was small and surrounded by a thick dark ring, like you were looking through a long pipe. A review of the spec table in the owner's instructions shows that the eye relief is 9.7" - 22.4". There are multiple explanations of these numbers. One might be you can see some of the reticle from 9.7 to 22.4 inches but not all of it. The only adjustment other than windage and elevation on this scope is for "focus" to make the reticle sharp when looking through the eyepiece. One of the disappointing parts to date with this scope is when I called Nikon for support on this eye relief issue. The first person answering the phone (note, this was a person that I got after pressing the right numbers to find my way to someone who knew about scopes)knew nothing about scopes.

Great long eye relief scope for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on June 8, 2013
I am quite happy with the scope considering its low price.

Optics are crisp and clear (typical Nikon), adjusters have a high quality feel to them, and the design is clean and simple- not a lot of junk or logos on it.

A longer eye relief would be nice, but I have very long arms, so that may put me in the minority. This seems like it would be excellent set up as a scout optic on a hunting rifle.
Pros: Clear optics, solid design, simple looks
Cons: With the eye relief was just a bit longer (but I'm tall w long arms)...
Would recommend: Yes
