I'm starting to think that some are getting the Nikko Bit confused for the Nikkor which is a sub derivative of Nikon as in the early camera world
Probably confusing two different scopes.

There's the much cheaper Nikko Stirling Nighteater, which originally came in 8-32 x 56 and then was launched in a higher mag 10-50x56. Then there's the 'big Nikko', Nikko Stirling Diamond10-50x60, which has gone through several mk's and has been widely used in FT to quite some success. Andy Calpin uses one.

There seems to be personal taste as to what mk of big nikko people prefer... and the BSA 10-50x60 was the same thing before it's name changed to Nikko.
