Anyone have any experiences with any of the above? I realize that some people prefer difference scopes, and I also recognize that this Nikon isn't world class. But, I've heard positive things about it at this price range, understanding there are better scopes available for additional money.
I used the Nikon M-223 1-4x with BDC in a LaRue LT139 mount on my latest build. I researched the Burris mount but decided that I wanted the known ruggedness of the LaRue rather than the unknown of the Burris. If you are not abusing it, the Burris will probably hold up just fine.

I don't have a lot of time on the Nikon but at this point I would rate it average. I'm not a huge fan of the reticle, but the glass is clear. What I really like is the 4x magnification. I liked it so much that I put a 4x scope on my Takedown as well. I would really like to have a 4x behind my RDS at some point, rather than the 3x. It's just enough of a bump in magnification for me at 100y to help out my aging eyes.
