Nikon 3-9x40 Prostaff Rifle Scope review

by SRDGA, from United States, GA Written on October 16, 2014
I am setting up a 17 WMR heavy barrel using this scope. This is the second Nikon scope I have purchased. Solid performer, especially for the price! Since I am using it for a rim fire rifle and generally making sub-two hundred yard shots, these Prostaff level scope optics are perfectly fine. I did compare this scope against the Nikon Monarch 3-9x40 rifle scope optics and frankly the Monarch, with the multi-coated optics, is "clearer" but I am not making shots that far so it did not warrant the added expense especially since I am putting it on a not too costly rim fire rifle. Both great scopes!...

Good value

by Jim, from United States, NY Written on October 16, 2014
I do alot of research before I buy. The quality of this scope is excellent for it's price point. It's going on a 6.5 grendel build and I expect great things. Should be more than acceptable for hunting but I would not say long range compatition shooting....
Pros:
  • good value
  • good clarity
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • hunting, informal target, and plinking
Would recommend: Yes

Great performance to value ratio

by TexasRangeAmmo, from United States, TX Written on October 13, 2014
If you want a great traditional rifle scope, that's clear, and can stand up to some abuse, and you want the lowest price point for a scope that meets that criteria, this is it.

For around 140 bucks you get what you used to get for 400 a decade ago.

If you want all the latest fancy stuff,,,,you're gonna pay for it,,, go ahead.

If you want functional quality and reliability, this is it....
Pros:
  • Price to quality ratio is great
  • Clarity is great
Cons:
  • None

solid quality scope

by Preach, from United States, MO Written on October 13, 2014
This is a working mans scope. Quality at a working mans price. Clear, clean, and looks good. This scope has a wide range of applications. I've put it on small caliber rifles as well as larger caliber rifles with great success....

Great Scope for $$$

by GearHead, from United States, MN Written on October 10, 2014
Typical Nikon Glass Clarity. Easy lift and set adjustable windage and elevation turrets. BDC reticle works great when using the recommended bullet velocity to match. I have this mounted on my .308 Browning BAR Lightweight Stalker for white tail and have only good things to say about this optic for the price. I have numerous top tier Leupold optics for my battle rifles and I prefer the re-settable turrets of this optic over Leupolds turrets. Buy it and shoot it!...
Pros:
  • Cheap!
  • easy to use
  • Easy to zero
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • hunting

Nikon scope

by JJEE, from United States, NY Written on September 25, 2014
This is the 2nd nikon scope I've used. The price that Opitcsplanet sold this scope was very reasonable. Zeroed this scope on a rifle in 5 shots. The glass is very clear and the adjustments are precise. I first started at 25 yards, 50 yrds and lastly 100yrds. After, 200 rds it held zero....
Pros:
  • Clear, bright optics
  • precise adjustments
Cons:
  • None

Nothing better for the price so far as I can see.

by Sam L, from United States, CA Written on September 10, 2014
Seriously impressed. For the small amount of money that this scope will set you back, the glass is clear as day, it's built rugged and tough, and the turrets even feel reliable. I'd give it 5 stars but there are better scopes, they just cost an exponentially increasing amount of money... Inside of 1000m, this sight wont let you down (maybe even further, cant say)....

Nikon 3-9x40 w BDC reticle

by pjkozy, from United States, AZ Written on September 7, 2014
Have always liked nikon optics and their scopes fall into that category. You can cover a lot of ground with the settings on this scope and the Nikon Spot On software allows you to fine the right BDC settings for the shells and bullets you shoot. The optics are top notch with plenty of low light gathering capability. The price makes it a must purchase for all you game hunting needs....
