All I needed for the job at hand.

by Jerry Lee, from United States, TN Written on August 29, 2014
As an avid coyote hunter here in the east I quickly learned that too much optic was a handicap. This scope has more than enough power and the weight reduction over the previous optic I used was noticeable. The compensation rings are true to range and the low light quite satisfactory. So a big thumbs to Nikon and to the great service I get from Optics Planet....

Nikon 3-9x40

by Gabe, from United States, FL Written on August 29, 2014
Great scope. I also have a 4-16x42. I have them are two AR15 rifles. I love them both. Great scope for the money. They stay right on at 200 plus yards. Nikon scopes are bright and durable. I will never buy anything else. Highly recommend the scope and mounts....
Pros:
  • great value
Cons:
  • None.

Great scope; lousy mounts

by Klebanoff, from United States, AR Written on August 25, 2014
Having been a fan of Nikon optics for years, I bought the scope and Nikon mounts from Optics Planet in a package deal to put on a SIG 556. The scope is excellent. The Nikon mounts are worthless! Do NOT buy them! You will be sorry if you do.

The bottom piece of the mount--that is, the part designed to clamp onto the rail--is forged out of a single piece of metal. The HUGE disadvantage of such a design may not be readily apparent, but trust me they suck! The one piece design makes it physically impossible to separate the bottom of the mount and slip it over the rail; rather you have to start at either end of the rail, wiggle the mount onto the rail, and then slide it to the desired location.

One problem is that Nikon mounts are too small to accommodate many AR rifle rails. They wouldn't fit my SIG rails. They wouldn't fit the rails on my Rock River Coyote Rifle either.

In addition, I have to question the integrity of such mounts even on a rifle capable of accepting them. Because the base of the mount is a single piece of metal, it's difficult to imagine it gripping a rail very securely even if the fastening nuts are firmly tightened.

I threw them out and bought Rock River mounts, which are very rugged and of exceptional quality.

Again, the scope is excellent. You will be very happy with it. Just don't buy the mounts!...

Nikon P-223 3X9 BDC Scope Review

by Tom, from United States, TX Written on July 31, 2014
Very good scope for the money, perfectly designed for the AR Platform... easy to mount and sight in. not too much or too little power for the .223/5.56 cartridge. The big plus is it's a Nikon product so you don't have to worry about the quality. Wish it had come with the P223 mounts and rings!...

Nikon P223 with P series mounts

by usab671, from United States, CO Written on July 30, 2014
This scope is extremely accurate and easy to zero in.

Took it to the mountains in windy weather and was accurate out at 200 yards.

The P series mounts are rock solid.

For the money, it would be hard to beat this setup....

P-223 BDC Scope

by fledge, from United States, GA Written on July 30, 2014
Great scope, very clear, instruction book is complete and very helpful. I would recommend it to anyone. It is easy to mount using the Nikon mount and really completes an AR-15 setup. It is great to use and the BDC feature makes it a must have for the tactical AR-15....

Fantastic AR scope for the price!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 1, 2014
Very easy to set up and sight in. Within minutes I was shooting 2 inch groups at 100 yards. Performed extremely well for a $200 scope and a stock barrel! The only thing I would change is I should've gotten the 4-12 power, but thats just personal preference.
Pros: Value, user-friendly
Cons: Should've gotten one with more zoom...

Nikon P-223 3-9x40 rifle scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, MO Written on February 17, 2014
This is my first Nikon scope. I have heard great reviews of Nikons and I have not been disappointed with this one. The view is clear, adjustments are easy to make and the turrents can be locked after making the final adjustment. The only criticism that I can give is that it does not have parallax adjustments. For that you have to go to the M-223. For the price it is a great scope.
Pros: Nikon quality at a great price
Cons: no parallax adjustment...
