If the price is good compared to new-buy it. Decent glass for the price.

OP, check SWFA and their Sample (used) list. I've bought most of my scopes through them. Gotta pay tax, cause they're local, but they stand behind the products they sell.

You just missed one in the BX last week! Think it went for $350 NIB...

BTW I own that scope, the BDC is calibrated for a 168 HPBT at around 2680 FPS, also the ballistics program from Nikon can tailor the BDC to other loads or handloads and display aiming points. I have that program on a tablet for field use.

Thanks from POLACK

Vortex has better glass and clarity than Nikon in my opinion. I've checked them out side by side and the Vortex won! Eagle

Thanks from ripcord

I have this scope.
With Nikon's Spot-On calculator it is pretty good, it will put your three shot sighter group danged close, and then a few clicks will have you in the black.
And their phone app makes it easy peasy.

Oh, not for sale at this time.

Love my Vortex Crossfire II 4X16. Clarity and resolution are superb for a scope at this price point. Nikons are fine - I own two Pro-Staffs but the Vortex is better.
