Great Scope for my Ar 15

by NKY, from United States, KY Written on October 30, 2014
Optics Planet was quick to delver and service was great.

The scope is a perfect fit for my Colt 1516. Took four rounds to sight in. After that I was putting them in a half dollar bulls eye at 100 yards. Eye relief is just what I was looking as not to be to close to charging handle and recoil.

Nikon glass is clear and sights are easy to use. Thought about going to a 3x9 scope but where am I going to shoot over 200 yards. Nikon has been making optics for years and it shows in the quality of the scope....
Pros:
  • Nikon reputation for optics
  • Nikon, zero adjustable turrets,
Cons:
  • None what so ever
Would recommend: Yes

Good inexpensive glass

by Jonathan, from United States, NC Written on October 29, 2014
Bought this rifle as an inexpensive optic for my wife's AR-15. She'd primarily shot hunting rifles in the past so it was more natural for her than a red dot or reflex type sight. It's very clear and good quality for the price. She's able to shoot it just fine and I like that you can set your zero anywhere you want....

Best Scope at any price.

by Eugene Tochilin, from United States, IL Written on October 22, 2014
Wow!! What an awesome scope. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. The nay sayers did not read. I sighted this scope in at 25 yds with 8 shots, then moved to 100 yds and used 4 shots. Its good to go. HINT: Take your time at 25 yds. That's where you do your most important work. Oh, let your barrel cool down between shots and catch your breath between shots. A strong and fast heartbeat will put your shot off....

Nikon P-223 3x32 BDC Carbine Rifle Scope

by Jim, from United States, VA Written on October 4, 2014
The BDC reticle is almost impossible to see on this Nikon scope when trying to sight it in. As such, sighting the scope in at both 100 and 200 yards has been a chore and is still not accomplished after 120 rounds fired. Look somewhere else for an M4 scope....
Pros:
  • Size and design idea
Cons:
  • implementation
Best Used for:
  • Close Range
Would recommend: No

Awesome scope!!

by ejp84, from United States, WI Written on August 16, 2014
I purchased this scope along with the suggested rings for my Colt le6920 and I couldn't be happier. The scope looks sleek and fits the gun well. I was hitting target right off the bat and only needed slight adjustments. This scope is quality and works well....
Pros:
  • amazing fit
  • great quality
  • Easy to mount
Cons:
  • None

Nikon P-223 Carbine Scope

by Silk Miller, from United States, WI Written on July 30, 2014
I love the scope. Compact size. I bought it for my Just Right 45 ACP Carbine. Works perfect with that weapon and caliber. The 3-power magnification is all I need. I zeroed the scope at 50 yards; 3-4 inch groups from standing position. Excellent target acquisition. As with all Nikon scopes, great quality and value....

Scope Mounts were Defective

by Mike, from United States, AR Written on July 30, 2014
As expected with other Nikon products I own, the P-223 scope is excellent, but I had a major problem with one of the two aluminum mounts that came with the scope. The first mount slid on my AR-15 Picatinny rail with no problem.

The second mount wouldn't slide on. I held the two mounts upside down to compare the gaps and one was noticeably narrower than the other. Since the mounts are made of aluminum, I clamped the defective mount in my padded vice and used a file to open the gap wide enough to allow it to slip over the rail.

After about ten minutes of trial-and-error filing and fitting, I finally opened up the gap to the correct width. I had some touch-up aluminum bluing to use on the shiny-filed aluminum, so after mounting the scope on the rifle, my amateur gunsmithing efforts were properly hidden from public view.

Yes, I could have sent the defective mount back for a replacement, but I figured I could fix the problem myself. The only thing that concerns me is if I received a defective mount that passed quality control, others may have, or have had, the same problem....

Terrific little scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, MD Written on November 22, 2013
Very happy with this little scope. Put it on an AR and tried it out on a known distance (100-200-300-500yd) range. It was perfect for this application.

Only disadvantage is that the large dial knobs interfere with the use of side bolt handles (like on a Sig 556). If not for this limitation, I'd immediately order a second one.
Pros: Great clarity, small, light
Cons: Not for rifles with right side reciprocating bolt handles...
Would recommend: Yes
