I just ordered a Nikon Buckmaster 4-12x40 for load development with my AR.  I presently have a Nikon 1-4 on it now in a 223 one-piece mount.  Will my 223 mount work with the new scope or am I going to have to wait until I can afford a new mount for the Buckmaster?

Is the tube diameter the same?

I believe so, but my concern was the distance between the rings.

I believe so, but my concern was the distance between the rings.

Distance between rings shouldn't be an issue. The only scope that I've ever had a problem like that with is my Leatherwood 4-16x50 Angled Top Focus, and that is only because they beefed up the area around the turret housing. I ended up getting a low profile long riser so I could use regular rings and space them out.

Yes, same diameter.  I just don't know if the space between my rings is enough for the elev/wind knobs.  I'll just have to wait unless someone on the forum has that scope and the Nikon 223 mount.

Seriously? Have you taken a good look at both the M-223 mount and that scope? :yukyuk:  There's a ton of room between the rings!

You may have to mount it as far forward as you can on the receiver and in the rings to get the eye relief right, but relax about having enough room.

You're probably correct.  I'm just being a worry wart.  Scope is on back order.  Will just chut-up and wait-n-see!

Yup, you will have zero issues using your M-223 1 piece mount on your  4-12. Here's a pic of my M-223 mount and 3-12 scope. Works great.

Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Program. For using the BDC circles on your reticle.  Enter your shooting info and get the corresponding distances for each circle.

The distance on the Buckmaster seems OK on the four I have on various AR's.

Thanks, Greg.  I really quit worrying about it 5 days ago.  I'm just a worry wart much of the time.  Should just be patient and wait-n-see when it gets here.  But I'm sure it'll be fine.
