Nikon P-223 3-9x40mm BDC 600 Scope, Matte Black is rated 4.88 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for the AR-15 I bought this scope to mount on my sig m400. as usual with all Nikon products the quality is second to none. The BDC was spot on. I zeroed the scope at 100 yards and tried the BDC at 200 yards at it worked great. Only one word of caution there is very little clearance when using the Nikon p223 mount. the scope was to big to fit my 45degree off set rail, and I had to order a low profile 90 degree to push the 45 degree rail out to clear the scope. but over all I would give it 5/5 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear, crisp and sharp optic. A must buy for the budget shooter. I've always been a budget conscious shooter (aren't we all?) so I had never bought an "expensive" scope, being content with optics in the $50-$75 range. I hunt on occasion and punch paper more than anything. When I got a new M4 and had taken a less expensive scope to the range, my shooting was average at 100 yards for me, about 1.25 -1.50 MOA, which considering the platform, I was happy with. That is until my wife bought this scope for me.What immediately impressed me was how clear, clean and sharp the optics were; being much more efficient at gathering light and keeping the image bright. I couldn't wait to get to the range!When I got to the range, I zeroed at 25 yards and then moved to 100 yards. It was there I began to notice the enormous difference in the quality of the scope. The reticle is 1 MOA, but I was shooting at a 1.5 MOA bullseye. Shot after shot went into the bullseye using PMC Bronze 55 grain FMJ ammo. I consistently kept 3 shot groups at .75 MOA to 1 MOA, Most of the variation could be traced to the guy pulling the trigger. Changing ammo didn't affect the zero much and I kept consistent groups in the MOA category, again it had more to do with me than the scope or the gun and the 16 inch barrel.The range I was on at the time was limited to 100 yards, so I haven't been able to shoot at more distant targets, but will sometime soon.All in all, this Nikon scope lives up to the quality Nikon name and can hold it's own against the hideously expensive offerings by other manufacturers. It is a great buy for the budget minded shooter who wants a quality scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acurate Great scope. Aligned red dot with crosshairs at 50 yards. Bullseye, bullseye bullseye. Eager to make distance adjustments at longer ranges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope for my AR Everything I wanted in a scope for my AR predator rifle. BUT, be sure to download the app; NIKON SPOT ON. It allows you to select any Nikon scope, input the caliber/ammo, set your target/zero distance and then gives you very accurate BDC to zero in at any distance. Easy to use and invaluable if you shoot couple different rounds/weights.

The usual mounting places the front sight visible in the bottom third (or even bottom half) of the scope.

Yes you can use this scope on an AR chambered in 6.8mm; but no, the bullet drop markings in the reticle won&apos;t be correct for the trajectory of 6.8mm ammo. If you know the drop of your 6.8mm ammo at various ranges you can match that up with the drop for 5.56mm ammo and figure out what range each mark on the reticle would match. Depending on your choice of zero, the first 200-300 yards ought to be quite close, after that (where you really want the BDC) they will start getting farther and farther apart. <div class="bvseo-author">Answered by: Tom_C</div> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2015-08-04</div> </div> </div> <div class="bvseo-question-answer" data-questionid="1538901"> <h2 class="bvseo-question"> How much are monting brackets for this scope? </h2> <div class="bvseo-question-detail"> </div> <div class="bvseo-author">Asked by: Randydandy</div> <div class="bvseo-answer" data-answerid="1809363"> The mounting bracket for this scope is item 222103 and the non-member price is $69.99. <div class="bvseo-author">Answered by: CUSTOMER SERVICE</div> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2015-07-10</div> </div> </div> <div class="bvseo-question-answer" data-questionid="1477003"> <h2 class="bvseo-question"> do yall still have a payment plan for buyer&apos;s club members on this item? </h2> <div class="bvseo-question-detail"> </div> <div class="bvseo-author">Asked by: rusty66</div> <div class="bvseo-answer" data-answerid="1736850"> We do offer a 4-pay plan for Buyer&apos;s Club members. <div class="bvseo-author">Answered by: Customer Service</div> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2015-04-22</div> </div> </div> <div class="bvseo-question-answer" data-questionid="1416263"> <h2 class="bvseo-question"> this scope comes with mounting or its separate </h2> <div class="bvseo-question-detail"> </div> <div class="bvseo-author">Asked by: Shahzad</div> <div class="bvseo-answer" data-answerid="1673780"> Mounting rings are not included. <div class="bvseo-author">Answered by: Customer Service</div> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2015-03-29</div> </div> </div> <div class="bvseo-question-answer" data-questionid="1416268"> <h2 class="bvseo-question"> I have AR15 S&W Nato </h2> <div class="bvseo-question-detail"> </div> <div class="bvseo-author">Asked by: Shahzad</div> <div class="bvseo-answer" data-answerid="1673595"> Unfortunately, there are a few more things we need to know about your firearm before we can give an answer.
