I picked up a Nikon 2.5-10x44 Tactical used, on a trade. The elevation turret was malfunctioning. I sent it for warranty repair, and it came back working fine in about 2 weeks. No charge to me. Optically, it is very good. Seems plenty durable. I suspect it had been damaged before I owned it. I would say it is a high quality product, backed by a bullet-proof warranty.
But, all things considered, I still like Leupolds better.
