Nikon’s new BLACK series of rifle optics is engineered for both long-range rifle and action-shooting AR enthusiasts. The reticles can be used for a variety of applications regardless of chambering or ballistic performance, and they can be further optimized for specific shooting situations utilizing Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. Magnification options range from 1-4X 24 mm for rapid-action targeting to 6-24X 50 mm for precise shot placement at greater distances. BLACK series riflescopes feature 30 mm main body tubes constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum alloy with Type 3 MIL-STD hard anodizing. The first five models will be available in the spring. nikonsportoptics.com
