Nikon P-223 3×32 Scope Review

UPDATE: Finally found some time to zero/shoot with the P-223. It holds a zero as expected and easily puts all rounds into the head zone of an IDPA style targ…


Q&A:

Todd asked How do I upgrade an AR 15 to be more effective?

Hello, I was just wondering what things I need to look at to upgrade and improve my AR 15’s effectiveness and reliability? I’m looking to improve accuracy, decrease weight, decrease recoil etc. For recoil, I know you need a new buffer spring or hydraulic buffer correct? For the weight, I’m thinking a collapsable stock. For accuracy, a new barrel. I’m going to get a Trijicon scope. One day… Those suckers are expensive though… But that’s as far as I can think with my limited knowledge of rifles. I’m a handgun guy, and this is my first rifle. I would like to know anything and everything that needs to be upgraded in order for the rifle to be more effective. Big changes I can make as well as small changes I can make. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a darn good rifle out of the box, but I have my tax refund and want to upgrade it. Also, what types of ammo (grain count) are good for which types of twists? Thanks. Happy shooting.

And got the following answer:

Take the gun to a gunsmith, they can improve the accuracy and make any legal alterations.

Ninja Sour Death asked Is a 3-9 x 32mm rifle scope powerful enough for varmit hunting?

I have a Bushnell 3-9 x 32mm rifle scope and I am contemplating selling it for a new scope for my AR-15. I typically shoot anywhere below 400 yards. Is this scope usable for this type of hunting?

And got the following answer:

Depends on the varmints you are hunting. If you are hunting in wide open snow, trying to nail fox or coyotes running on top of the snow – this will work for you.

However, if you are trying to nail smaller varmints, and, you are not seeing the whole animal due to grass or shrubs – a bit more power will be better.

That 32mm front lens – this is what brings in the light that your eye see’s. Early in the morining – a 32mm will not let you notice a coyote standing under a tree……. but a larger front lens like 44mm or 50mm will let you see it. And if you have a 30mm body instead of the usual 1″ body – you will see it even better because the 30mm are much more effecient getting the light from the front of the scope to your eye. No free lunch – this will add weight and cost to the scope – but it is a nice upgrade.

You should take a peek at the BSA line of Sweet 223 scopes. The hunting model is 4-12x or so and both have a BDC top target turret that once calibrated lets you instantly adjust the crosshair zero from 25 yards to 375 yards so you can shoot dead on target with no hold over. The bigger 6-18x or so is too much for hunting – up close at 50yd you would only see fur – with no idea if your scope is on the tail or the ear….. and at 18x is shows every wiggle and heartbeat like a friggen earthquake.

I have the BSA Sweer 223 on my varmint AR and varmint bolt gun for Alaskan winter varmints. They are affordable and have worked just great the past 3 years problem free. The new models they make now have side focus – very handy if you wear glasses or share a rifle with a buddy. You can see them at www.midwayusa.com

Good Luck

WebGuy asked Is A Flat Top Riser Needed to Mount a 2-7x scope to an AR-15 with a fixed front sight?

Will my front sight cause any issues with mounting a scope to a flat top AR-15 or do I need to get a riser? I don’t want the front sight to be in the sight picture through the scope.

And got the following answer:

Magnification narrows your field of view. You don’t have to mount it much high than the sight to have it not be in your sight picture at all.

I’ve got a set up with a red dot and a 3x magnifier.
The red dot sight is zeroed to co-witness with my iron sights and when i flip up the 3x magnifier the iron sights are completely out of the sight picture.

Raoul asked How to add a rifle scope to an AR 15 with iron sights?

I have an Ar 15 with front iron sights and flip down rear iron sights. Problem is when I put optics on it lines straigh up with the irons making them useless not to mention in the way. Is there any way around this while maintaining accuracy

And got the following answer:

It depends on your rifle scope. You will most likely be limited to an optic that is 4 power or greater (the front sight will blur out), the Marine Corps specifically uses an ACOG 4x on theirs and I have no trouble hitting things out to 500 yards with it mounted and the front sight post in the way. Another option is a true 1x optic like EoTech, Aimpoint, or something else that will co-witness with the front sight or 1/3 co-witness. That would put the red dot on top of your front sight tip or it would put it low enough in the reticel that it wouldn’t be in the way, but would still be usable if your battery dies and you need to flip up the rear sight. Personally I normally buy without a fixed front sight post but for a short range (0-200) fighting carbine with a RDS, a fixed front sight can actually be the way to go for a few reasons.

You didn’t mention what optic you are trying or what mount you are trying it in so it is difficult to give more specific and helpful information than the general statements above, hope that helps.
