Thoughts on Nikon Blackforce 1X4

Recommended Posts

I have been using a red dot but as I age it doesn't look like my eyes like it anymore at long distances. I noticed Nikon has knocked the price from $399 to $199 on their website. Since where I shoot doesn't go much beyond 100 yards for 3 gun I think 1-4 will be adequate. For $200 is it a good buy or should I buy the Steiner PX4 for about $650 new? My biggest concern is the reticle. The Steiner appears to be better at making a precision shot if necessary. Also are there any known QC issues with the Nikon?  Any advice would be appreciated!

Using the Nikon on  a 5.56 rifle?

I had Nikon Prostaff's on 308 semi autos and they wouldn't take the recoil. Or more accurately probably the bolt return impetus

Yes, it'll be on a 5.56. Right now I am leaning towards the PX4i, seems to be more of a proven commodity and I would rather just buy once than to blow $200 and then end up buying the PX4i anyway.

Steiner is decidedly better optic!

Okay now that I have decided pretty much on a Steiner what would be the best mount for it?
