Nikon question

Guys thanks for your recommendations, which nikon scope model were you referring to (4.5-14) with turret adjustables.

Also how will this scope compare with say the zeiss conquest???

    Its the (new) Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14x40 SF, runs about $249.99 at opticzone. I would say the glass is probably a bit better then the VX2 series from Leupold, and way better then anything else in that price range.

    Floyd Charles is spot on!
    It's a great scope for the money.
    It is available with a mil-dot reticle which I beleive you stated you wanted and to me the glass is in line with the VXIII's and better than the VXII's. I've had mine for 4 months and have been very pleased with it.

    Tracks nicely, Good clicks, clear and bright optically early morning and late evening.

    I have no hands on experience with the Zeiss.
    The Zeiss may have some small advantages but it's 3 times the price.

    Does anyone have a photo or a link of the new model, I cant find one on the net, or I am looking at the wrong one. The one I have seen doesn't appear to have the target type turrets. (unless I am mistaken)

    Floyd, Check out the Nikon site. Just be sure that the Buckmaster scope has SF (new model with side focus)and not the AO (old model with adjustable objective). Good luck.
