Zero-Reset Turret Feature: To simplify field adjustments, Nikon has integrated this feature into all new scopes. Just sight-in as usual, then lift the spring-loaded adjustment knob, rotate to your “zero”, and reengage. Field adjustments are now as simple as dialing-in your subsequent ranges

(See photo) I loosened the elevation and windage turret screw and moved the turret to zero. I noticed that the elevation screw was below flush (see photo) as you would expect however the windage screw stuck up over flush. I tried to tighten the screw tighter and....crap the screw broke. I’m sure what happened was since you are dealing with a serrated arm (geared teeth see photo) when I set zero on the turret with the zero line, I was setting tooth on tooth which is why the screw was above flush. Let me assure you I did not torque the crap out of the screw! I did feel resistance and was stupid enough to keep going but it didn’t take much!
I set the 0 directly in line with the zero line on the scope body. Keep in mind this is not a 1/4” MOA at 100 yds, this is a 1/2” MOA at 100 yards. Take a look at the two photos I posted showing that an absolute 0 to Zero cannot be obtained with my scope.
I have visited the Nikon website and they have a “No Falt” “Lifetime” Warranty On rifle scopes so I reported it and followed their instructions for sending it back to be repaired. It was not a manufacturing fault it was a “me crimping it down to tight fault”. I’ll follow this up once I get my scope back, re-site it and move on to the 200 yard and see how close “Spot On” is and how quick Nikon is with the repair and warranty.
And, of course, the optical clarity you'd expect from Nikon is there, it's a very nice scope for the money.
It's also a great size for the AR, not too big or small, just right. Sometimes putting full sized scopes on AR's can be a hassle, and they certainly add to the weight of the gun, this is right in there and hits that sweet spot. The reticle isn't the BDC type I have on my other Nikon's, but the turret adjustments, build quality and overall design makes it a very nice scope. It would also be a great scope for maybe something like a carbine or brush type gun in .223. I will update once I mount it and sight it in, but so far, I'm very impressed. Great value.
I currently have this mounted on my Colt LE model AR. I have it mounted on the carrying handle with a military see-through scope mount on the handle.
I like the lower 3x setting as it makes it more useful for close in self-defense when need be. I personally find the 3x power good enough for most shooting as the incredible clarity of this scope makes up for the power difference. Night vision seems to be pretty good too.
A friend of mine owns a pawnshop. He pulled out a whole slew of scopes, new and used, holding them up for comparison. Almost all of them seemed to have some yellowing when compared to this Nikon.
I'm sort of old school... don't like variable scopes as I feel that the more moving parts on anything there is, the more things to go wrong. Simple is better, especially for long term survival use.
Holds zero when I dismount and re-attach it, although that's likely more attributable to the mount.
If I ever come into a financial windfall, I'll change it out for a TA01NSN Acog. Until then, I can't see ever wanting to change to a different scope for my AR.
