I don't see much comment on Nikon rifle scopes. Has anyone had any luck with the Monarch line? I'm looking at a 5-20x44 side focus for my .20 Vartarg. I don't want to spend a ton of money and these seem to be priced right.

Yes. They make a good product. I'd even recommend you look at their Buckmaster line too, e.g. the 4.5-14x40. I think it's a best buy at the price point.

The Optic Zone is a good source for Nikon.

I agree. Nikon makes some great products.

I recently tested a 8-32X Monarch and the ED glass is superb. As shown in the attached picture the "square" test showed perfect tracking. I believe that this scope represents a good value. If you are going to use it (8-32) you may want to get some tapered bases since the range of reticle adjustment is limited. Good shooting. James Mock

The ED glass is intriguing on this model. I see that it only has 20 MOA of adjustment, That kinda kills the deal for me.

I'm using a couple of new SF Monarchs on p/dog rigs..although still only one inch tubes...they are a 'great buy' in optics..The 5-20 will serve you well on the 20 VT...The extra target knobs are a plus too...I'm using a 4-14 Weaver Tact on my 20 VT and its plenty of glass out to 500+ on p/dogs.....

I recently bought a Nikon Monarch 6-24X50SF FCD with a fine cross-hair and dot which I really like. It came with 3 sets of knobs too which was a plus. The optics seem really clear and the adjustments are precise.

Just curious would Burris Signature rings and -20/+20 inserts get one out to 600 to 700 yards with the 8x32 Monarch and a 223? I'm thinking the 8x32 with 20 moa plus the -20/+20 (40 total) would do it pretty easy?

Thoughts are appreciated.
