Welcome to the forum!

Very timely by the way, since I am about to publish a comparison article that includes the Monarch X.

DLD - welcome to the party.
 
I think the .25-10x42 Monarch with Nikoplex reticle is the best scope for the money.  Don't you agree?

??? Seems like that function kind of goes with the territory. I mean, there is a lot of competition out there. Wouldn't you want to do everything in your power to assist? Just wonderin'.  Whatever

I asked him to put that disclaimer in his introduction because he is not a Nikon customer service agent, he is a Nikon Rep.
 
You will get more accurate and quicker answers by contacting Nikon's customer service in regards to customer service issues as he does not have access to warranty claim information, tracking numbers, how long your repair is going to take, etc, etc.
 
If we want him to be an active part of The O.T. like the many other reps we have, we have to respect his position and not expect him to act in the capacity of a secretary or assistant.  I am sure he would not turn down customer service request but he won't want to spend much time here if all he is doing is calling Nikon on your behalf.
 
Additionally if you make a post about a Nikon customer service issue and he does not see it that would unfairly be a bad reflection of Nikon and himself.
 
These are the same reasons for Rule #6
 
6.  The Optics Talk forum is not to be used as a customer service tool for SWFA customers.  Tracking numbers, Order Status, Credit Card issues, etc. need to be directed to our Customer Service Professionals at 972-617-7056 from 8 a.m -5 p.m CDT or via e-mail at swfa@swfa.com.

Welcome from another newbie. I have a Monarch 2.5-10. Great scope for the price range.
Would love to see some offerings in the 6x with a smaller 40 or so obj and a lit reticle.

DLD... Welcome.  I have a Nikon Laser IRT, Nikon binoculars (don't tell anyone, no one thinks I use binoculars and I would hate for them to find out), I have given Nikon rangefinders as gifts to my son-in-law and a friend, and have a number of hunting/shooting acquaintances who use Nikon Monarch and Gold Monarch products. 
 
My first question to you is: what improvements do you see coming down the line for the Laser IRT line?  more powerful laser (a 900 megawatt would be greatly appreciated), more modern BDC, better glass???  I love my Laser IRT, BTW... but would make some improvements if I had a chance.

Fair enough. All I did was ask a question. Was not trying to ignite a fire. Welcome to the OT Forum Mr. Nikon rep.

I'm another Nikon fan who is glad to see a Nikon rep. Big Grin

So, what's next for the Buckmaster/Omega/Slughunter/Coyote/Turkeypro lines, now that the Prostaffs have had such a drastic upgrade to full multicoatings and turrets?

The only Nikon product I currently own is the Riflehunter 550 rangefinder. It works great and is spot on. Use to have a 3-9 Monarch but wanted to try something new, which is when I bought my first Viper.

Welcome.  I have a couple of nikon rangefinders and more Nikon camera equipment than can be carried at one time. The only Nikon riflescope I had was an Omega 3-9x40 BDC and I decided it was time to upgrade glass, but I still have not settled on a particular optic for that Musket.   
 
There is a scope that you mentioned you own that I am quite curious about  for coyotes - the 4.5-14x40 Coyote Special.  I do find that in actual use the circles on the Omega tended to work well in the field for deer however with the circles on the Coyote Special being so large I would think adding a fine crosshair inside the large center circle would be helpful for more pricise shots.  How large of an area do these circles represent.  I'm thinking that a coyote's body would be 10 to 12 inches brisket to back and foot to shoulder about 18 inches so are the circles 10 inches or 12 inches or 18 inches.  Can you add any insight from your use of this optic?  If you were to replace that scope would you stay with the 4.5-14 model or would you select the 3-9 model based on having experieince with the 4.5-14 model?  I tend to think that in low light you might be better off with the lower power optic giving a brighter image.
Also is this the same glass as Omega or is it different glass closer to that of the Monarch?
