I've owned this scope now for about a month, and after cycling 400-500 rounds through it on my Bushmaster AR-15, I've had absolutely no issues with it. The BDC feature is great, and when coupled with the Nikon Spot-On app for iPhone ($5.99 when I purchased), you can really improve your accuracy and understanding of ballistics. The scope and the app work together and take caliber, ammo type (mfg, or hand load), weather conditions, range, etc. to give you invaluable info. If you're sighting in on a range with a 75 yard max length, but want a 100, 150, 200 yard zero, the app gives you precise data to make that happen. If you change ammo types, the app allows you to see a ballistics table and modifies the range on your BDC markings with up to date info (not on the actual scope...but gives you the new yardage). May sound complicated (it did to me), but once you get into it, it couldn't be simpler. The app actually lets you play around with ammo types, without burning ammo, to get the best ballistic match for your application.

Turrets are solidly built, and give a good solid "click" when adjustments are made. I had concerns about their size, and being exposed, but neither proved to be an issue.

Once zeroed in, the scope has maintained zero over several hundred rounds and being bounced around in the truck.

The BDC markings are great, and the combination of the scope and iPhone app have proven to deliver accurate results. Though it's only a 3x scope, I've been able to consistently hit a steel target (1.5' square) at 450 yards, using the BDC reticle, with no issues at all (aside from the need for a spotting scope and hearing to determine if I'm hitting).

The viewfinder is generous, with plenty of relief.

Just came here to let people know they don't have to buy the expensive Nikon mounts. The TMS AR15 Flat Top One Piece Ring Mount I think is a much better option. Much easier to quickly attach and detach from the rail. The scope has great clarity and a good field of view. Would recommend all around.

Love mine, looks great, very clear glass, bought the matching Nikon P-series rings to mount the scope, they look and fit great as well.

Mostly came here to try and save anyone else the endless searching I did for scope covers/caps, saw many people post many different sizes/recommendations for covers for this scope.

If you choose to go with Butler Creek Flip-Open Scope Covers, you will need a size # 14 Eyepiece (with the red opener), and a size # 17 Objective, those will fit perfectly on this scope, FYI.

I bought this to replace the NcStar crap I had mounted on my AR. After one trip through the bush, it became apparent I was missing a lot of details with it's lack of clarity near the sides and poor light transmission. I hesitated to purchase this scope as a replacement because my previous scope was a 4x, and this was a 3x. I wasn't sure if I wanted to lose magnification when I was already having trouble seeing what my buddies were seeing with no problem (Granted they had the binos and variable scopes up to 9x) but I still couldn't see a damn thing.
Enter the Nikon P-223. I was VERY pleased with it right out of the box. It was bigger than I anticipated which put me off a bit due to it's consumption of valuable rail space, but those doubts were soon forgotten when I put it up to my eye. I could see things MUCH better than I could with that 4x NcStar scope. Excellent Light transmission, and no distortion near the edges. The field of view was also bigger, making life a LOT easier on me. Unfortunately though, you have to buy the rings separate, and the scope takes up the entire rail on my AR, making my BUIS useless. I'll have to buy something to mount on the scope itself in the event I lose my optics, or take the time to remove the scope. I just wish it came with a quick detach mounting system. They are billing this as their tactical model... I guess I'll have to buy that separate.

Pros:
Excellent quality for the price
Nikon!!
Great light transmission and clarity
No distortion near the edges
Great field of view

Cons
Slightly on the large side. About 2/3s of a hunting scope
No quick release mounting system...or any mounting system that comes with it for that matter

Would definitely recommend.

I recently purchased a windham weaponry src AR15 and originally planned on just using a set of magpul MBUS iron sights for my needs. However, at any distance past about 50 yards I just couldn't get my rifle to group as well as it should have been. I have a lot of firearm experience and have owned other ARs but after myself and 2 friends shot this one we agreed that an optic was going to be necessary to see what the rifle was truly capable of.

I had seen some good reviews on the Nikon p-223 but didn't know much about them. My local academy store was selling them for $129 so I took a chance and couldn't be happier. First thing i noticed was the clarity..you WILL see a difference when you look through this scope compared to the cheaper stuff and Id say its actually well above average for its own price range. You have sort of a "wow thats really clear" moment when you look through it. After getting the rounds on paper at 25 yards I zeroed it at 50 and hit bullseye after bullseye. I noticed that it was extremely easy to aim with both eyes open using this scope at 50 yards or closer which is something I've always found difficult to do and makes for very quick target acquisition. Next I placed 2 clay targets on a stand and put up a fresh paper target and moved out to 200 yards. I fired at the first clay target and nothing happened...fired at the second one and again, nothing..I took a 3rd shot at the paper to see where I was hitting and went to check it out. To my surprise both clay targets had a hole in the middle and I managed to hit the paper about about an inch to the right of the bullseye. I know this is more about the rifle and the shooter but this scope obviously does what it was advertised to do and that's about as good as I would have been able to shoot with any 3x optic at any price.
