So whats the deal with Nikon Monarch UCC fixed power scopes? Why is everywhere that I can find them have them on "Close Out". Surely Nikon isnt for going the fixed powers in this product line revamp. Maybe I should grab a couple now while I can to go on future guns. Im a big fan of fixed power scopes and love the value of Nikon scopes. I hope they don't exclude the fixed scopes from their future product line!

me too - i have a 4x40 monarch ucc and it is excellent. very very good glass for the money.

 

it makes a fine scope for a plinker and short range caliber gun.

 

i put mine on a 30/30 and it sits quite nicely.

From what I have been told, the fixed weren't as popular as variables. I have found the 6 x 42 Monarch to be the most awesome scope. I have used it extensively for the past 6 years and never felt under or over powered. It is very bright and keeps the lines on my rifle simple.

Hey, Stubewan, what did you ever decide on the scope for your new .270?  How is your daughter liking the 7-08?

Oh yeah, I am excited for Chandler. She's doing great at 100 yds. with the 6 x 42 Monarch. But remember that I am loading reduced loads for her right now. Come August we are going to move to 140 grain NBT's and RL 15 at 2600 fps, as per the Nosler manual. I believe that it will make a devastating combo for her. It should keep the recoil to a dull bump. She will be hunting in a swamp with no more than 100 yds. of freedom, it is mostly used in Nov. and Dec as a hideout and bedding area for bucks, it is also the only water for about 2 miles of slash and ridgeline.

 

As for ol' Dad, I have decided on , not settled for, the Zeiss 3.5 x 10 x 44. I drove to Chattanooga, TN to get a hands on experience with the Zeiss, Monarch 3.3 x10x 44 AO and Sightron Sll. While all seemed great, I really don't need an AO, I don't feel comfortable with them, to much to go wrong. I liked the Sightron, but I loved the Z-Plex reticle of the Zeiss. I can't wait to order it. I am not as knowledgable about reticles as some of the other guys on the sight, so I use the bottom Verticle substention, loading manual and a chrono at the range to tell me how far I can bullseye with any scope. I have shot bows for so long that I am really comfortable with gapping sight pins, so in a way it is similar. I know that I may catch a few negative replies, however I hunt the East where I have had very few shots over 150 yds. Checkout the load for my 270. I am so excited, I can hardly wait for the season. By the way this group was shot using Chandler's Elite 3200.

Looks great, Stuart!  Good shooting!  Looks like you've got an outstanding game plan -- excellent rifle for your daughter, and excellent scope choice for your .270!  3.5-10 is an excellent magnification range for all-around hunting, and you'll be very happy with the Conquest!

I'm sorry about the answer to the other questions.  However I believe that your question was answered. The 6 x scopes were not as popular as the varibles. So yes, I would agree with you, on that if you like to use them, find them and order several.  I believe from the opinions I gathered about a 6x, that the Sightron 6x42 Big Sky is everybit as good, if not better than the Nikon and the price is very comparable. I love the fixed scopes also, I believe that jonbravado uses a  7x scope from Meopta and totally loves its quality. Zeiss still makes a great 6x and so does Leupold, Kahles, Meopta, Schmidt and Bender, and also IOR. 

 

    Personally I don't need a 30mm tube, so Meopta, Zeiss, Kahles, Leupold, or Schmidt Bender is where I would look.  If the value for dollar spent is the answer that you are looking for I would look no further that the Sample list or the Sightron Big Sky.  Again I apologize for any percieved thread hopping.

 

Blessings Stubewan
