Just off phone with Legacy Sports and was told this is the replacement for Diamond Series.

Nikko Stirling has introduced a totally new Targetmaster series. In redesigning this series, features desired by Tactical or Competitive users have been included. Targetmaster provides the highest level of optical performance that will improve your shooting scores and results.

Available in four variable zoom models that allow the user to adjust the magnification required. The main body of the scope is a 30mm hard alloy tube that provides added strength and light transmission over one inch rifle scopes. The lenses are coated in ETE Mirolux, which allow maximum light transmission so you see the target faster, clearer and with more contrast. The adjustments are target-style; just pull out gently and turn to the desired setting. Push down again to lock. You can also return the dial setting to zero without special tools so you can be ready in the field to accurately compensate as required for both windage and elevation.

All Targetmaster rifle scopes feature side parallax and focus adjustment. Also located on the side is the switch for the illumination of the reticle. Fast focus eyepieces allow you to adjust the scope to suit your eye strength.




Also note that Nikko has not made a decision to not sell in the US as had been stated. From what Im getting there was a decision to trim the product like and the Diamond Series was one that got caught in the line cuts...

It is what it is, because it is!!!

Can't seem to find it in stock many places. Apparently it's important to make sure you get one that was made since October 2010 - older than that doesn't have the improvements but online vendors either don't know/care or tell you the age when you buy it. Sounds somewhat promising though esp. in the price range.

Apparently the glass along with other areas of the scope are improved. I'm trying to find a definitive source in the U.S. for this NEW version. Legacy sales told me they have them in stock and ready to go to vendors - I just can't find a vendor that can tell me if they are selling old stock or the newer ones.

He didn't leave much confidence as to the clarity of the new glass vs. the Diamond's...

Legacy will sell direct from what they told me in the past...

Seems like a lot of these companies expect you to buy stuff on faith.

The scope also has illuminated reticles. So they had to cut cost somewhere to sell this scope for $500 less. More for less would be pretty cool. Sub $400 scope would be pocket friendly if you get the same fit and function as the Diamond.

A little weird the replacement scope is from 2009 product line..?

Order one and test it out... I will cover the FREE shipping!
