What do you think beats them in quality for the price points/features.
I have an ER M8-2x from the 60's or 70's. Solid as a rock, still has great optics.
I recently picked up a VX-II (Model before the VX-2) and am happy with it.
All were in the last 6-7 years.
Ive gone over to trijicon nightforce nikon and vortex.
I dont know if im just unlucky its a trend for a few years or if issues were fixed but im not risking more money to find out.
Nikons i use on firearms that are mainly backups or secondary things i dont use a lot but still need an optic or in the case of the no longer available african monarch a reallllly rugged cheaper optic.
