I will be doing a report after i get it mounted. Nikon also sells an app to help with the reticle adjustment.
Where did you find it for $189? All I've seen are 199 or so for just the scope.

I have a membership with direct buy. The scope was actually $139 before tax and shipping. Shhh, don't tell anyone. However if you have a friend with a membership they can order it for you. Just don't tell then i told you.

What height scope rings do you all recommend for an AR? I have a BCM gunfighter mod 3 (large) charging handle. Has anyone used quick detach rings?

I really like my Nikon 4-12x40mm ProStaff, it was just over $200 with free shipping at OpticsPlanet. The scope is mounted to a rail that attaches to the carrying handle and allows use of the factory sights. The scope, rings and rail detach by removing the rail from the carrying handle (just loosen one knob).

Nice rig, rainmaker. And I know you know how to use it!

I don't use a riser. The weld point is a bit lower than my cheek; more like my lower jaw. However, it is not causing any problems.
