My forever old Nikon Tactical 4-16x50 took a dump this weekend. Iíve already sent it in for repair but in the meantime, I am looking for a temporary substitute.

Looking for....
30mm tube
4-16 power....something close
Hoping to stay around $500

Or would you suggest something for $1000 and then sell my Nikon when it gets back.

What would you suggest?

Gives you a lower low end, and a higher high end. Sell the Nikon when it comes back.

They have a discount program for Military, Fire, and Law Enforcement. Even as a veteran and not active duty, I believe.

Wait to see what you get back from Nikon. I had a Nikon Tactical with 30mm tube, mil reticle, and excellent glass until I loaned my rifle to a buddy who decided he was going to keep both! Drop me a note if I can be of any help to you with the repair/replacement process with Nikon.
I am a longtime hunter and I am here to answer any questions on Nikon hunting optics you may have. I will also be sharing new products and specials on occasion.
