Welcome to Optics Talk. 

OK...please don't think I'm bagging on you, because I'm not. 

"Tactical" scopes, with TWO different colored, illuminated, BDC reticles, a built in "red laser sight" with it's own propitiatory mount, for under $100.....is probably junk.   

You've probably heard the old saying that "you get what you pay for". I'd wager that the Gent that coined that phrase got a Chicom rifle scope on Egay for cheap and it went TU within matter of a few sight in rounds being fired. Optics REALLY bring this phrase home....in SPADES. 

Look, my friend. Don't waste your hard earned coin on this trash. Give us your budget and intended purpose and let The Hive here help you find a suitable optic. 

Good shooting.

Be aware that inexpensive scopes seem like a good idea, but usually frustrate, sometimes enrage.  There is no shortage of less-than-quality optics with great feature sets and amazingly low prices.  These are, almost universally, throw-away's that will never work properly and will fail you often and in the worst possible ways.

The Nikon is safe, the Barska and Monstrum are NOT safe.  Koshkin also recommended a Burris.

Good luck, let us know what you get.

And don't forget you also need mounts, that too will cost a bit.
