  • Nikon P-223 3-9×40 Mate BDC 600 rifle scope improves the Nikon’s series of precision scopes for AR rifles.
  • The scope is designed with the immense speed sight detection mechanism and top class long-distance precision for AR series rifles that come equipped with .223 cartridges.
  • The P-223’s complete lens system is entirely multi-coated for top quality brightness.
  • It provides light transmission up to 98%.
  • The P223 3-9×40 provides the registered Nikon BDC 600 reticle and strategic-styled turrets that have Zero reset feature to streamline field adjustments.
  • Its famous and diversified magnification range makes it the perfect scope for a wide range of AR series that can be used for different types of range work and hunting occasions.
  • The P-223 like all other types of rifle scopes is streamlined for use with Nikon’s different technologies.
  • It can be effectively coupled with Nikon’s Ballistic Technology that allows to shoot the target spot on.
  • Spot On enables the user to find out all the specific aiming points on the BDC 600 reticle according to the precise ammunition and load.
  • The visibility of the scope may appear bit unclear in the ambient lighting conditions. That is most likely to be the case with indoor light.
  • The visibility may also become blurry with artificial lighting.
  • The gun comes with the Turret feature that can reset it to zero. It can help in field adjustments.
  • Nikon has incorporated this feature into all the new rifle scopes.
  • To use this feature you have to sight-in like you do it every time.
  • Then you will have to raise the spring-equipped adjustment knob.
  • Afterwards, rotate it to the “zero”.
  • Then you will be required to reengage.
  • Therefore, field calibrations are now very simple. You only need to dial in your successive ranges.
  • You are required to calibrate the focus mechanism at the rear of the P-223 to maintain the reticle for appearing clearly. Therefore you will have to make extremely minor calibrations to hold a zero signified by the marks.

Pros and Cons of this product

Pros

  • If you compare the scope with the scopes offered by the Nikon in the other series you will find that the image of the P series is just as nice as other top or higher quality scopes.
  • It is a sleek looking scope with plenty of features.
  • The main advantage of this scope over one of the similar 4-12x zoom scopes in the series by Nikon is that at full zoom the P-223 has more eye relief. The full zoom works really well and the Eye relief provides constant support to the brow.
  • You can equip the scope with the flip caps to provide top quality experience.
  • The turrets of the scope can be accessed directly.
  • That means that the scope can be conveniently adjusted with the accessible turrets.
  • That is a feature that is very unusual for the scope offered at this price range.
  • The scope is very clear to use.

Cons

The lines on the turret are not easily aligned with the corresponding lines on the P-223 scope. It really requires concentration to aim at the target using the dots on the scope. I discovered that the dot marks and sign of hashes on the BDC that show yardage were lesser than I expected.

This scope can fit following types of rifles

  • AR15
  • Rock River LAR-15
  • Bushmaster xm15 e2s
  • Mossberg MVP223

This scope can be used with many other types of compatible rifles.

Tips for using this scope

  • The scope comes with a set of rings that can be used to mount the scope on the barrel of the rifle.
  • These rings can easily mount the scope on the rifle.
  • There are various options available for mounting this gun with fixed handles. You can search for the mounts provided by Nikon.
  • The scope can be mounted on the AR 15s with one inch mount rings.
  • You can perform the parallax setting over the distance of 100 yards that can remove the parallax for precise shooting.

    I have the Nikon M223 3X12 BDC and I think its as good at it gets. Have fired it twice zeroing and tuning at 100yds and the last time I shot it was ten rounds in a 1.4″ and if I discount the flier it would be 9 rounds in a 1.1″ group. Next time I’m sure I will break the 1.0″ group at 100yds with the scope. I am really impressed with the Nikon Monarch series.
