I "think" most here would give the nod to the Nikon being the better of the two.
At least glass wise any way.

I also have both and prefer the Monarch to the Burris.  Also, I just received a Bushnell Elite 4200.  Today was the first time shooting with it, and I must say that it has immediately become my favorite scope.  SWFA is out of stock(I tried to order from them), but you can still find them with a quick internet search.

I will say that the NEW Monarch has a rather large ocular housing and may cause troubles on a rifle that has a high bolt throw, like a CZ.
 
I've owned the new Monarch 4-16x and liked it very much. I think the 2.5-10x is the best model in that line.

I've also owned both and the optics in the Monarch are better, but really seals the deal for me is that I hate the rotating power ring/eye box on the FFII.

Monarch is the better scope optically, but my ffII has taken a pounding and never had an issue. And mine at least is pretty good optically.

I have the Armalite AR-50  I have installed a nikon monarch 4 X 16 X 42 we bore sighted it by sitting it in a caldwell lead sled pulling out the bolt we had a shoot-n-c target at 100yrds and looked thru the bore and adjusted the nikon cross hair'sSharp Shooter i hope this will get us in the ball park!
 
I am going to shoot this cannon Friday and sight this gun in sure hope the gut's in the monarch hold's up with fingers crossed wish me luck fellas one thing is the muzzle brake on the Armalite 50 cal it buffer's alot of the recoil on these gun's so i will let you all know how it work's out with pictures if i remember how lol   later

I'm interested to see how the Monarch holds up on that .50 cal. I don't remember any one mounting one up on a caliber that big.

Not to hijack the thread but I've got a euro diamond on hold and just want to make sure I'm making the right decision. How about Euro Diamond vs Monarch?
