    I am looking real hard at this scope.
    My Question is:
    On Nikons web site for this scope
    on the Key Features page it says "hand turn retical adjustments -1/4 MOA
    But on the Tecnical Specs page it says Adjustment Graduation -1/8 MOA

    Can someone please tell me which way it is.:confused:
    Thanks, Mike

    That is a little wierd, I couldn't tell ya what is is. However, I don't think that Nikon is actually set up as MOA, rather they are set up on inch per hundred. My Monarch 5.5-16.5 is set up at .25 inch per hundred clicks. good luck

    Crap:(
    I lost the scope on ebay last night because I did not know the answer.
    Nikon does not give a contact # so I can't even call them.
    Help

    SWFA says 1/8. I'm pretty sure this is right.

    The Nikon 8424 has 1/8MOA adjustments.

    Since the 8424 has a 1/8 MOA I can not add Kenton TTC's
    so now I am looking at the 8421 which is a 4-16X42.
    Can anyone tell me about the tracking of this scope.
    Thanks,
    Mike
