Legacy Reviewer's Review of Nikon Monarch 8-32x50ED SF Matte Rifle-Scope

TOO MANY COMPROMISES. It's useless to me. I sent it back for a refund. The internal adjustment will not allow zeroing my 6.5x47 Lapua at both 100 and 1,000 yards, even after optimizing with the Burris Signature rings and inserts. The true (measured) adjustment range of this scope is only +/- 8 MOA. The scope is not as bright as expected. Sharpness falls off above 20X, right where target/varmint scope sharpness becomes critical. If it was properly designed, it would have a 30mm or 35mm tube and larger internal glass, for better overall brightness, sharpness, and much needed adjustment range. It is overobvious this scope was designed by marketers, rather than shooters. Hey, Nikon: It's time to dump the idea that the use of cheap 1" tubes outweigh responsible optical design.
Pros: Repeatable adjustments, Good color rendition.
Cons: Insufficient internal adjustment: +/- 8 MOA
