Perhaps it isn't as bad as people on forums from around the world believe?
The trouble with forums is that you're not always aware of the experience and skill level of the person posting and you're not always aware of intended purpose of the scope either.
I've only had 1 Big Nikko - a Mk2 and it was excellent for FT. Andy Calpin uses a Mk2 Nikko and has won the Grand Prix series for the past 2 years running. Can't be too bad can it
Having said that, for the money if I wanted a big, heavy sidewheel scope, personally I'd be tempted to spend a little more and go for a Sightron.
