I have baught Nikon scopes in the past and had no issues (Pro Staff, Monarch), after purchasing the Nikon Buckmasters 3x9x40 for my Tikka 30-06 my opinion has completely changed. After taking it out of the box and sighting it in i noticed oil leaking from the front lens... Also, the lateral adjustment cap was cross-threaded from the get-go. I got another replacement from Nikon, this time the front lens was leaking right as i was opening the box!
Next time I will stick to my gut and pay the extra money and go Leupold or Zeiss. I have NEVER had any quality or performace issues with those manufacturers.
Dont waste your money!
Pros: Easy to setup.
Cons: Heavy, Oil Leaking From Front Lens
