Nikon has introduced its new Black riflescope series—a new line of optics designed exclusively for long-range rifle and action-shooting AR operators in mind.
For the precision rifle shooter, Nikon offers the Black X1000. It's due to be available in a range of 4-16x50 and 6-24x50 with X-MRAD or X-MOA tactical-style reticles synchronized to elevated windage and elevation turrets. The adjustments enable precise dialing of elevation come ups and wind compensation.
The new Black Force 1000 is meant to be partnered with your favorite AR-style rifle. It features a 1-4x24 riflescope with capped turrets and a SpeedForce reticle. When the riflescope is dialed down to its true 1x magnification, the reticle's illuminated double horseshoe center portion serves as quick reference for reaction-speed target acquisition and engagement.
All Black series riflescopes will features a 30mm main body tube built with aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and Type 3 hard anodizing. They ship accompanied by Nikon's No-Fault policy for repair or replacement, and are expected to be on shelves in Spring 2017.
