Nikon M-223 Scope for the AR15?

Recommended Posts


I have personally put 1000 rounds of 223 and 1000 rounds of .308 ammo under that scope. I was doing some product testing for Nikon on a warm (105 deg in the shade) June day 2011. I ranged multiple targets firing quickly and moving the scope. Farthest target was 200 yards. Scope functioned flawlessly. I was very worried about heat transmission when I managed to heat the barrel of the DPMS Oracle up so much it melted my rest. To make a long sotory short I was very pleased with how this 8 hour shooting event went. Can't wait to get one and put it on my DPMS LR-308 for deer/predator hunting.

Feel free to drop me a note if you have further questions.

Thanks for the feedback! :up:

What kind of mount is that you used?

I'm going to try and pick up one of these within the next month probably. :yum:

Well, I couldn't find any of the Laser IRT scopes in stock.

That said, I settled for a M-223 3-12x42 SF Matte BDC 600!

Bass Pro didn't have the Nikon M-223 scope mount, so now I've got to hunt that down.

I'll post an iPhone pic of it shortly!

Nikon has a $30 rebate on these scopes in addition Optics Planet has a 10% discount running (I'm assuming the 10% is good with the Nikon's).

Edit: Yes, the 10% worked on the Nikon. :pleased:
