“nikko stirling nighteater”

Written on: 28/10/2014 by nrMacKenzie470 (1 review written)

I have been using Nikko Stirling scope for over 30 years. I had a good run with these scopes until recently. I own 5 target masters,4 of them are great and the last 1 will not zero point of aim past 50 meters. I have recently purchased 3 nighteater scopes that have the same problem. they are supposed to have warranty. I have returned 2 of the scopes to a dealer in PT Augusta over 6 months ago and still waiting. I ordered these scopes from Pt. Augusta dealer, waited 6 months . Finally get scopes… Read Full Review

I have three scopes to pick from to mount on 243 just need your best opinion on which one would be reliable out of the three, 1-MTC VIPER 8-32x60 /2-HAWKE SIDEWINDER 30 8-32x56/3-NIKKO STERLING NIGHT EATER SIDEWINDER 6-24x56.

What a great question! I have tried to buy the NS Night Eater but most of my usual sources have been sold out. So, I cannot make a comparison between the 3, BUT, I do own several Viper 6-20X56 scopes plus the Hawke model you mentioned.
Both are excellent. Two more I can recommend are:
Mueller 8-32X44mm
Redfield Revenge 6-18X44mm

Stay FAR away from the Weaver Kaspa! ElCrapo!

There is a marked quality 'plateau' once you reach the $250 level. It also increases at the $500 level, etc.
I now have 34 scope in my collection. Always looking for the ultimate price/performance ratio.

PS Konus is a GREAT scope, also.

Believe it or not, my shooting buddies preferred a $70 WalMart Centerpoint over a BRAND new, Nikon Monarch!

“Quality for the money”

Written on: 23/03/2013

I have a 300 win mag bolt action and that scope without fail holds zero. I've shot fifty rounds in the past Year or so and that scope hasn't let me down. With federal power shok ammo I get 0.6 inch groups at 100 and its dead on at 200. I love nikko stirling scopes and they are getting a bad rap by people that buy cheap aluminum mounts and rings. Use steel rings and mounts and you will see the nikko perform and you won't want to let it go… Read Full Review

“More useable than I expected”

Written on: 01/02/2013

A year and some months ago I came across a pair of Winchester model 70 .243 rifles at a price too good to pass by. Both of these rifles were topped with 4-16x44 LRX night eater nikko stirling scopes which didnt impress me much since I have owned/aquired nikko stirling scopes in the past. ( gold crown 3-9x40, silver crown 3-9x40, several 4x32s on rimfires.) The gold and silver crown scopes couldnt be trusted to hold zero after a ride on the back seat and some of the 4x32s just wouldnt zero or… Read Full Review

“Nikko Sterling Platinum Nighteater 8-32x44”

Written on: 10/10/2011

I have had 3 of these scopes, I can say however that, yes they are very good value for money. Especially the lower power ones (3-10 and 4-16 zoom). But I also have an 8-32x44 which is good but in the higher magnifications it loses a lot of colour, light transmittance and focus which makes it not very good for long distance shooting. The lenses coatings seem to be a bit fragile as well with visible etching starting to appear on the glass surfaces. Other issues I have with these scopes is the… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/01/2011

The Nighteater is a "Best Buy" in scopes in my opinion. The saddle focus on the Nighteater, (left adjustment knob), is a great feature. This season I killed a deer at 330 yds in the last few minutes of available light with this scope. It is as clear as the entry level Leupold scope I own and has much better light transmission than my Burris scopes (but there ain't nothin' tougher than a Burris!). You won't get a better quality scope for your money with any other brand. I'm about to buy… Read Full Review

I Dont know if you will ever read this but the left hand turret is probably for focusing.

The left hand turret is for parallax adjustment only.. i.e. focusing at different yardages.

Ive got a nighteater 3 - 10 x 44. It is very difficult to adjust the knob that changes it from 3 - 10 magnification. Thought it was clear until i looked through my mates zeiss conquest ( more expensive i know). Also have had major problems at the range when sighting in... wont track properly. Am returning it to Mialls gunshop who will replace it with another.. Hope the new one is good… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/06/2009 by Brods1675 (1 review written)

The Nikko Sterling Platinum Nighteater is easy to use! Zoom ring turns easily, as opposed to the Leupold 3-9X40 I have. My nighteater is the 3-10X42 and is on a T3 .223. I use it for spotlighting and take shots out to a couple of hundred metres with it. I'm thinking about getting a bit more magnification for this rifle, maybe out to 16. The current scope will go onto my next rifle - a .17HMR. My next scope will be a 4-16 Nighteater… Read Full Review

I use a Nikko Sterling Platinum Nighteater 6 -24 x on my T3 Tactical 300WM with muzzlebreak. Has held zero so far for 3 years which suprised me as I thought it might shake apart. It is used for all my shooting including pig busting where I empty 2 mags asap here and there… Read Full Review

Glass is from Japan and is very clear when shooting 700 yards. It came with a 5 inch sunshade and side adjustment big wheel.

Written on: 19/08/2008

I got my nighteater close to 2 years ago. Mine is the 6-24x44. I currently have it mounted on my savage 17hmr. The scope is VERY clear and lets in plenty of light even when zoomed in all to way. I just wish that I would have got a mildot reticle instead of my fine crosshair. The range focus / parallax correction feature is a great plus. The scope is much more rugged than I would have expected… Read Full Review
