How do I confirm a used Monarch Rifle scope

6 posts in this topic

Hey all, thought I'd try this question here. I may buy a used Nikon Monarch rifle scope. Its a little older and apparently doesn't say 'Monarch' on it anywhere, just Nikon. I was told it has a notch on the zoom so you can adjust with 1 finger, I'm told that may be an indicator. Anyhow, does anyone know how I can confirm I'm not buying a cheap Nikon vs. the Monarch? Any suggestions

I would watch out a few years ago I remember reading something about Chinese knock-offs of riflescopes being on the market.

Probably not much help but I just put a new Monarch on my .44mag pistol and just shot it Sunday. What a treat! The optical quality is great and its rock solid. One thing to look for is when you look through a cheap scope, the image looks good in the center but get blurry off to the sides.

I just replaced my cheapy Simmons on my 3006 rifle with a Prostaff (little cheaper than the Monarch) It looks great as well. I will shoot this Sunday and let you know how it comes out. The Simmons was junk.

Thanks. Yeah, I am still deciding, but looking at new ones again. I don't know if its worth it, and just may go new. I don't need the best scope ever either. I am putting it on a new Browning A-bolt .270wsm I am pretty excited for deer camp!

You are welcome. I can see that you would want to put something descent on that one. You can really reach out and touch with that rifle. I am getting pretty pumped too! Its been a couple of years since I dropped anything. Of course missing with the pistol last year didnt help and thats what made me upgrade my stuff. That was a first. I was so bummed...I never miss (or even nick for that matter)

I took my 3006 with the new Nikon Prostaff scope to the range yesterday. Once I got it cranked in it was great. Rock solid.

Did you decide on a scope?

    • When you rip up the floor, do you only need  replace the foam if it's wet? Also am I going to have to take out the consoles and windshield. I'm assuming I'll have to....Thinking of starting the project in the next month or so.
    • Not going to worry about much until later in the season, we know they can't stay crazy hot forever and slumps will happen, just as long as they are too long I will be happy. I just want them playing really well down the stretch.

    • I've said for years that he needs to wear a helmet, but it was for entirely different reasons.
    • I think that is talking about painkillers etc.      Likely he is taking stuff like statins and blood pressure meds as a minimum.  And he had some depression issues, as I recall, so perhaps something for that.     I saw a thing on TV that said it could have been a vasovagal syncope.  Basically you pass out due to stress.
