Leupold VXI or Nikon Monarch?

Need to buy a scope and was debating between the Leupold VXI 3-9x40 or the Nikon Monarch 3-9x40. Any opinions or other in the same low $200 price range?

In my opinion, the Nikon Monarch is more comparable to the Vari-X III of old. I would absolutely say the Monarch over the VX-1. Better light transmission, good clear optics, lot of scope for the money, lifetime warranty.
VX-1 is entry level. It comes with a good warranty and name, but not much else.

Drury, I've got 3 of the Nikon Monarchs and they are doing great. I sold off my Leupolds and have not looked back. Great light transmission on the Nikons and I really like the fast focus eyepiece and finger click adjustments on them. Only wish they offered a Boone and Crockett or ballisticplex reticle of some sort.

Monarch...Hands down!!!!

As the previous poster stated, the Monarch is really closer to the Vari-X-III, than the I.

Monarchs are really good scopes...sakofan... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
