I have put this scope on an extra-heavy barrel flattop upper for long range shooting. GREAT brightness and clarity. I compared it side by side with a Leupold 3-9x50 and the Nikon with 42mm objective is still brighter. The side focus adjustments for range are very handy. The eye relief is very forgiving. I like Leupold but, in my view, the Nikon glass is at least as clear and much brighter. A great value!
Pros: clarity, brightness, eye relief, side focus, hand turn adjustments
Cons: none yet
