Outstanding Scope!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on January 15, 2013
I purchased this scope to mount on a custom made Browning BLR chambered in .35 Whelen. I wanted a scope that could be used in thick cover and still be able to reach out to 400 yards. This one did the trick!
The scope is light weight and very bright at dawn and dusk. The BDC is great and using Nikon's SpotOn website program I was able to get exact drop for my prefered load.
So far this year the rifle/scope combo has accounted for a 200lbs 11 point buck at 35 yards, an 800lbs Nilgai bull at 177 yards, and a 300lbs Nilgai cow at 300 yards. Couldn't be more pleased!

Pros: Light weight, bright optics, BDC
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Great Product/ Poor Quality Control

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on October 21, 2011
This is an update to my previous review. This is my 9th Nikon scope. I think they are a great value. I volunteer at the rifle sight in program at my range. I have never seen any optics that compare to my Nikons. This is the first Nikon Scope that I am frustrated with. The Optics have great clarity. I was just disappointed to find a large fuzz behind the front objective. It takes me 2-3 hours to bed a scope right and somehow I missed this fuzz looking at me. I wish I had stuck with the Prostaff line that I have never had issue with instead of paying for an expensive fuzz.
Pros: Great Optics
Cons: Big Fuzz stuck behind the front objective...

Great Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on October 11, 2011
The Nikon scopes are all a great value. I cannot tell an discernible difference between this and the Prostaff Models. I have 2 Monarch's and 6 Prostaff. I love the BDC and can tap 1 by 1 ft steel @ 500 yards and see the marks with my 7mm. That is all the clarity I need with both the Monarch and Prostaff models. I did break the plastic flip cover off within 5 min of shooting @ the range. I was happy it happened there.
Pros: BDC
Cons: Plastic cover...

Happy with this scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on January 12, 2011
This is a great scope, very clear optics. Narrowed down to Nikon vs Leupold. Comparing specs side by side, a comparable Leupold was $100 more. Very happy with this scope. Mounted with Burris tactical rail on Rem 700 and Burris Signature Zee Rings. Really like the mounts too. Easy install with no lapping.
Pros: Clear optics, BDC reticle, Great value, includes snap up scope covers, lifetime warranty
Cons: Haven't found any yet...

Nikon 2-8x32

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on December 25, 2010
This is an ideal scope for hunting 'up close' using 2-power as well as out to 400 yards. The eye-relief is a safe 3.8" to 4.0" for use with heavy calibres. I've used this Nikon model on lightweight 338 WM rifles that generate some reassuring recoil as well as on 416 Rigby with 6000 ftlb loads. The scopes have all held their zero point and integrity without compromise. With the good eye relief I have never experienced a 'magnum eyebrow' with either calibre.

On clarity, the scope meets the high expectations associated with the Nikon name. The only time that I have had a problem was when facing toward a setting sun. There was visual light flooding that might have been prevented if a 3 inch sunshade was attached. (Sunshades are not readily available for this model, which is an oversight by Nikon.)

On tracking, (that is, the ability of the scope to move its reticle position as predicted and directed by the 1/4 MOA clics of the adjustment turrets) the Nikon makes sighting in easy and holds its zero and changes its zero fairly predictably. I have not done the kind of testing that a 'tactical unit team' might require at distances of 500-1000 yards. This scope is designed for hunting, and its tracking is superb, much better than some older scope models that I used 20-30 years ago.

My models of the Nikon 2-8 have all come with the BDC reticle. To be honest, I simply don't use the system, preferring to know my trajectories and animals well enough to do all hunting with the f...

Nikon Monarch 2-8 x 32

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on March 26, 2010
Bought to sit on a Sako Quad. Impeccable build quality; bright and clear optics; smooth, firm zoom; accurate and repeatable adjustments; generous and constant eye relief; deep objective "hood". Seems very similar to a VX3 2.5-8 Leupold, but better value. Ocular housing seems bulky relative to the [32mm] objective, and the standard adjustment turrets (interchangeable for other factory types) are a bit bulky, but that's being picky: I'd buy another one...
Pros: Build Quality, Optics, Eye relief, Zoom range
Cons: Bulky (if interchangeable) turrets...
