Re: cost Vs happiness

A Y,
My NXS has always made me a happy man. They are not cheap as you know, but to me worth every red cent. What Price range are you looking at? I noticed a Nikon Tactical in the classified section here on LRH earlier today (I think $750.00), wether it's still available I don't know. Some of the guys here could fill you in on thier quality as I have never owned one and don't know.

Re: cost Vs happiness

I am going bargan basement on this one. basicaly I am looking for advice on whats ok and whats "fall apart" in the bottom line of scopes.
I have a nice 4x drop compesated scope here it retailed for $60 back when I got it in 2002. its real nice but it has an integeral mount so it only fits on what it was made for.

Re: cost Vs happiness

The Bushnell 3200 in 10x40 is a pretty decent piece of glass for about $200. I had one on a .223 and it was a 'chuck killing machine. Clicks were solid and accurate, optics were nice and the mil-dot reticle was well done. The only downside is the fixed 10x... if that's a problem, I didn't mind it.

Just got one of these used, and put it on a 223. Seems to be very nice. My Dad has a couple of Nikons and I am impressed.
