I am leaning towards the Nikon 4.5-14x40 SF milldot buckmaster, but wanted to know how the windage and elevation adjustments are on this scope first before i got it.


This will be going on a RRA  varmint Ar-15

Welcome to The OT!!


Yes, the Buckmaster in question is a great buy for the money.

1/4 MOA clicks and the Nikon's repeatability and accurate tracking are typically highly regarded. 


Good to go!!


Edit to add:

Just noticed your location.

Stay safe, my friend. Thank you for your service and Godspeed!!

i have three buckmasters and love all three, the new style is so much easier to use no tools or coins are needed.for the price they are hard to beat imo. i just mounted one on my new .280 rem and its great.


as cheap mentioned hope you and you unit are all doing well stay safe wish you the best of luck and a hopefully speedy return home!! i dont know if we tell our service people enough how much we really respect and appreciate what you guys do!!

Hey cheaptrick,
I'm still looking at the link you sent me in the forum on the 3.3-10x44 Monarch UCC mildot. Would you put that on a varmint ar-15 or go with a 30mm tube side focus
scope and spend more money? I have a few options on used scopes here but the Burris signature is like 14" long..what would you put on a varmint .223 you actually
carry around and use in the field. No 8-36x56 stuff,,....I'm looking in the 3-9x40 range

I think the Nikon 3.3-10 would be great.

well as soon as i got home i went and picked up the buckmaster and let me say that i am very impressed with the overall fit and finish of the scope and the glass is very clear. The only problem no is i have to wait for my rifle to come in so i can mount it.


ohhh and for any one else wondering the mil dot setting is at 12X.
