Good day.

I am looking at one of these to put on a 30-06. As far as I understand it is now being made in PI and do not know if this has an impact on the quality of the product? I can get these at a good price around here and would like to know just how good or bad they are. I have read mixed reviews about these but on many occasions it is big Leupold fans that says that the Monarchs is trash (I like Leupolds too but am always open to other quality products). I have a Fieldmaster (Buckmaster branded differently for here) from PI that performs fine for its use and never looses zero. The rifle shoots very good groups with the scope.

Does the instant zero reset work reliably? Would you guys recommend something else in the same price range. Side focus or not?

Any opinions would be appreciated

Thanks

Pieter

IMO, this is a pretty good scope (not great but certainly functional for it's intended purpose).

I have never had anything bad to say or report about my Nikons.  There is obviously better but I think they are the best bang for your buck.

Actually I think this is one of Nikons better scopes. I tend to buyZeiss, Bushnell or Super Sniper but there is really nothing bad I can think of about this scope.  Nikon has made lots of great cameras over the years and I have a lot of money tied up in Nikon glass. I think this is a good value for what you get. The circles on the hold over points seemed a tad odd to me at first when I put one on my musket but they work great on round targets at the range and work well in the field on game.  I ran a Nikon for about 4 years on my primary hunting rifle with good success last year I upgraded to more expensive glass - not sure that was a good choice the Nikon gave reliable results.
