The way I'm reading this thread is that these guys are telling you not to buy it, but you really want it and are going to buy it anyway.

Yeah I think your right, I've heard a lot of opinions from all sorts of people and it seems like I should get it anyway, I've been after a decent varminting rifle for a while now and it just seems like me. I wanted some simple opinions on the scope that's all (hoping for good reviews). lol I should just go buy it and have some fun...

Re: Need Opinion on Nikko Stirling Nighteater 10-50x60

I was also curious about these....
They have a new diamond 10x50x60 that is supposed to be a "real" scope...
Over at swfa in the optics talk forum there is a gentleman that has recently purchased one of these and has answered many questions about them.......
P.S. why is this site so slooooooooooo??

I have the nighteater placed on a howa 1500, and I do not have any complaints. I have shot many rifles while in the service and this rifle is satisfactory, and if you understand the balistics and have a solid foundation of marksmanship skills you will be fine. In fact I have beat friends who were shooting Rem 700 with optics that cost more than the rifle themselves and I was still outshooting them. Long story short is that alot of people are quick to blame poor performance on the rifle vs shooter.

Good luck

Remember......you get what you pay for with optics. The 10mm group at 100 yds. can be done with just about any decent rifle and a fair scope. Ask your friend what the grouping is at 200 or even 300 yds. If the groups are within 1.5" at 200 yds (probably not) your probably getting a decent rig. I've bought scopes priced from Tasco all the way up to S&B and at a glance you can tell the difference in quality with the increase in cost.


Remember: 1 shot.....1 kill

I agree that with optics you get what you pay for but in this particular situation you get a little more bang for your buck. Now I have my Nighteater attached to a 30-06 so I cannot make any claims on other rounds but at 100 yds my impact rounds are touching, at 200yds I am 1.5 +/-, and at 300yds I can hit a 3" post it note almost everytime (shooting error, bad wind read). The one thing I do not care for on this scope is the fact that the objective end of the scope is angled so it makes it difficult to find flip up lens covers but that is relatively minor in the scheme of things.
