I've have more than a two dozen scopes over the years.  From the Leupy 6.5-2-x50LR/T w/varmint reticule to the absolutely wonderful Nic-Star mounted on a CO2 rifle.... lol.   A few months ago I bought an AR-15, Rock River Predator/Coyote with 20" match stainless barrel and all the good things about the Rock River.  I've been looking for a scope, not to much money this time.  I read about the "Falcon Menace 4-14x40FFP mil-dot.   The reviews have been good on the scope, but i'm not sure i want to try it.  I also have a Bushnell 5-15x50AO duplex 3200. It has been a very nice scope for my Rem700 26"flutted barrel, McMillan Stock that I had re-chambered to 22-250AI, for the money it's bright, even around the edges and almost superior to a few of my Leupy's.  Not bad for $300.  I'd like to stay around the $300-$400 mark, not a lot to spend right now....  Especially after stocking up on reloading supplies due to the changing political climate, lol.  Are there any reviews that I can read directed at the New Nikon 4.5-14 Coyote Special w/BDC?  I'm just about to order one and can't quite make up my mind.

 

Signed, undecided

This is my Rock River, I'm just starting to do some "Camo" work on in, the scope is a 3.5-10x40 AO Vari-X III that was one of my extra's that I've used for breaking in the rifle.  It's not a bad scope, but the "shinney black finish" on the Leupy just won't work, lol.

send back to leupold and they can fix the color.im guessing that the coyote bdc is just a buck master with the camo finish.

I've checked out a number of Web-Sites, some a little less than SWFA but they don't have any in stock.  I want the Advantage Camo version of the scope.....  I've seen it for $309+-.

I sent an email to SWFA, haven't heard back yet.  If I don't hear in awhile, I"ll call them. 
 
I've been painting the AR, I hope to have the scope here when I get finished painting....  I don't want a lot of "camo" just enough to break the rifle up.

I tried to look up the subtensions in their '09 catalog, but they screwed the pooch on this 1. They have pics of all their BDC reticles and subtension info, but no cross reference diagrams like they usually have. They sent me a PDF file with the subtension info, but i have to wait till i get to work tonite to open it.

I ordered it this morning. It shipped this afternoon....  Maybe, they wanted to get rid of it? lol. Sold
I took a couple of pics of the Rock "Predator/Pursuit" with the "Sand" camo on it.  I masked, primmed it and finished painting yesterday.   It should be "dry" enough that I can mount the scope as soon as it arrives.

OK, I had a small problem.  I order the Nikon Coyote special from SWFA.  The web site showed that they had it in stock.  I received an email confirming the order.  Some time later, I received another email from SWFA, I read it but it didn't sink in, as I continued to believe that the scope was  "on the way", it wasn't.  The email was in reality a notice that the scope was in fact, not in stock.  It was backordered.....  I didn't think anything about it, until I went back to the email to find the "tracking number".  I was surprised to say the least.....  Anyway, after thinking about it and not knowing when the scope would be shipped, I cancelled the order....
 
Now, I was without a scope.  I had been thinking about going a different way from the onset of trying to make up my mind regarding choice of a scope for the rifle...  I've wanted a FFP (front focal plane) scope for a long time, I couldn't afford a NightForce, I've spent about $900 on a scope before, but right now, that was not an option.  I've also been reading about the Falcon Menace 4-14FFP.  Pros, Cons, comments, reviews, I did a good deal of research.  I'd also been talking to my son about getting on.  I didn't know it, but in the mean time he had order the Falcon to put on a custom pistol, using a Savage target action, 17" McGowen barrel chambered in 20PPC, 11 twist, 11 degree target crown and Holland Radial Brake.   My Son is very talented and in fact has purchased "Press' " for the manufacture of 20cal bullets.  They should be delivered in about a month.  Anyway, I got of topic.
 
It turned out that we both had decided to order the Falcon scope,  yes I know it's not a NightForce, but for a quarter of the money I can find out if I like the M16 reticle (modified Mil-Dot) and the FFP.  So that my story and I'm sticking to it.....  lol....  The Falcon should be here by next Friday.  If your interested I'll keep you informed....  Thanks for the coments.

Sorry about the double post.  I'm surprised that you can't edit or delete mistakes...... I've never seen that before.  Just chalk it up to stupidity....

I placed an order for a Coyote Special back in Feb and then found out it's on back order, all I could ever get out of customer service is call back in two weeks. They didn't have a shipping date and had no idea when it would be in stock. After waiting 6 weeks for the scope I canceled the order.   So if you are looking to get your hands on a scope soon. Keep looking as the Nikon is a pipe dream so far.

I'm fairly sure the Coyote Special is just a camo'd Nikon Buckmaster with a BDC reticle. 
Not a bad scope in it's own regard though. I had one on a .300 RUM.

Did the Buckmaster come with the ARD (Anti-reflective device) or does that just come with the Coyote Special?
 
At this point, I'm very happy that I cancelled my order and went a different way....
