Just got a Nikon Force XR scope with my S&W 629 classic and was wondering what the good, bad and ugly is with it and what experiences you?ve all had. Appreciate any info!

I have an older model Nikon variable with the traditional plain crosshair...I have it on my Competitor single shot in 416 Barnes...several hundred rounds through it...no problems....less eye relief than my Bushnell elites, but I've never had a problem with it

I've had a 2x Nikon on my 44 Encore for a number of years and love it.

I've had my 2X Nikon on a BFR in 480 Ruger for 3 years with no problems.

Which one do you have, the 2x fixed or 2.5-8x variable?

I've used Nikons exclusively on all my handguns. Haven't had a problem with one yet, even on my heavy kickers. The BDC reticles are pretty handy for compensating longer range shots if you take the time to set them up.

I have a 2.5 x 8x Nikon force xr I have not experienced any problems with my scope. Very well constructed to! I have my scope mounted on my FA .357. In opposition to what i have heard that the scope doesn't do good on heavy recoil guns. So for so good for me!
