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???

Re: Nikon question

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.

Re: Nikon question

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.

Re: Nikon question

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)

Re: Nikon question

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.
