1. I have read alot of conflicting reports. Some say the Nikon Monarch 3x9 has better glass. Some say the Sightron II 3x9 has better glass. Which is it?
2. Some say the mechanicals on the Nikon are inferior?
So what is the truth? There's got to be one with better glass and one with better mechanicals, which is it?
3. A New 3x9 Nikon Monarch is $300+
A new 3x9 Sightron II is $200. Should I be fooled by the lower price on the Sightron?
4. It seems you are paying for a Leupold in their warranty, but not really getting a better scope when looking at similar priced scopes from Nikon or Sightron? ie. Sightron II vs Nikon Monarch vs Leupold Vari-X II vs VX-I.
Any opinions would be great.
