Very good scope for a resonable price
First i would like to say it sends very fast every time.
I have bought a few scopes from this place and it takes less then a week for it to arrive in sweden .
And also fast answers for questions on email.
This nikko stirling octa 1-8 is worth what you pay for it for sure it has the almost perfect (true 1x) just like the other nikko models Metor/diamond but has a much longer eye relief so you can aim alot faster and have no fear of getting hit from the scope as you fire the rifle.
Many other scopes i have tried that claim to have 1x for example leupold really have a 1.25 och 1.5 and it is very irritating for the eye but this scope is very close to 1x and has no magnification that i can see.
I got the scope thursday and shot a few rounds friday to zero it and then i shot a deer on saturday so it was fast and easy and works well with my .308
Not to heavy but also a very nice quality feel to it both tube and turrets.
There are big jumps with every click on the turrets around 15mm so it is not for extreme precision shooting it is made for hunting just keep this in mind when you buy.
The illuminated reticle is very weak just like the other nikko stirling scopes the red is almost invisible even at a grey day with no sun and alot of clouds.
the green is much better but also not very strong i thin the illumination is just made for the night because it is way to weak for the day.
Overall this scope is very good for what you pay i am very happy with the one i got and that is is up tp 8x is a big boost because the most common ones here is 1-6 and if you need that extra 2x for a deer out far on a field it is great.
Very good value for my money i think i.
I also have a vortex viper 1-6 and i would say they are about even in the overall feeling and quality and the glass.
But the vortex is 1-6 so i think the octa with 1-8 is a bit better value when they are almost same in price
