I was looking at one of these scopes in a local shop a few days ago and have to say it is quite impressive, I was allowed to take it outside and look around a bit and it is very very clear, this coming from a guy who has 3 older Leupold Vari-X models. From what I have read online the scope also tracks and adjusts very well also, any of you gentlemen tried one of these Nikon's ? What was your experience?

I can't find EFR in the catalog. I don't know which scope you mean.  But, I don't have one anyway.  I've had two or three Nikon scopes.  I liked them.

I have 2 and they are great for a 3x9.
I've had a number of leupold 3x9EFR's.
If I was buying a 3x9 I would buy the Nikon and do it before they are all gone.

I purchased one of the Nikon 223 BDC scope for about 150, the scope is nice and clear and I have no real complaints there. The issue I had with mine is that it would not hold zero on a .223 rifle. I sent the scope back to Nikon a total of 7 times, scope still won't work on my .223 so I gave up and put it on a .22 where it works fine. Tracks like garbage, but at least it holds a zero.

I believe that my experience with Nikon was one of the few rather than the many, most seem to love their Nikon scopes and have no issues but for me I will never buy another Nikon again after that headache. Lifetime warranty is pretty worthless if they can't fix broken scopes.

If you are getting it for your .22 I think you would be happy, for an airgun I am not sure as they have different recoil impulses and I have no idea how it would hold up to one of those.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.
