Rated 4 out of 5 by fishwrapwriter very clear optics
very clear line of sight, very easy to read, even in low light. I hunted deer through a long day of heavy rain and it was still pretty easy to see. this scope would definitely benefit from a set of flip up covers. seems pretty rugged although I have only run about 25 rounds through my 20 gage H&R single shot with this scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by species Excellent scope
This is a quality scope. The views through the fully multicoated lens are bright and sharp. I am pleased with the optics and that is something I am always very fussy about in anything with a lens or mirror such as binoculars, telescopes or cameras. The images are the best in this price range and probably better than many costing much more. The overall construction seems plenty solid for most rifles but I do not plan on trying it on a large caliber one so I cannot comment on those. It has held zero perfectly so far. The adjustments are completely accurate.
The paperwork with it, and confirmed on Nikon's website, states that the light transmission is up to 98% compared to the description here that says 90%. The adjustments for elevation and windage are both resettable by simply lifting the dial to disengage it then turning it to the desired number before letting it back down. Very easy to do.
The only thing I could imagine anyone not liking about it is the adjustment to change the power. It is a bit stiff. Not enough to bother me but I could see how it could be a problem if you need to make a quick change in the field.
I liked this scope so much that I purchased a second one for a different gun.
