Nikon has introduced two larger versions of the M-223 riflescope for AR-type rifles, with higher magnification and locking side-focus parallax adjustment for long-range shooting. Designed for speed and accuracy, the M-223 4-16x42 maximizes the performance of the AR platform in .223 Rem., from zero to 600 yards.

The M-223 4-16x42 BDC 600 features tactical turrets with Zero-Reset and a reticle developed specifically for the .223 Rem./5.56 mm NATO round, with open circle aiming points and hash marks from 100 to 600 yards for $499.95

The M-223 4-16x42 Nikoplex features Rapid Action Turrets based on the .223 Rem./5.56 mm NATO 55-grain polymer tipped bullet, and allows shooters to dial-in elevation from 100 to 600 yards with a single revolution. This allows shooters to aim directly at targets, and eliminates the need for holdover for $479.95.

Like all Nikon riflescopes, the M-223 is optimized for use with Nikon Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. The Spot On program provides users with exact aiming points on the BDC reticle for any load or ammunition at a specified range.

The Nikon M-223 4-16x42 also features:

Ultra ClearCoat optical system
Nikon has engineered the entire optical system to provide the shooter with a bright, sharp, incredibly flat sight picture and light transmission up to 95 percent.

Eye Box technology
Every model features an impressive four-time zoom range and up to 4 inches of non-critical eye relief. A massive ocular lens delivers a huge, exceptionally bright, high-resolution sight picture.

Smooth zoom control
Magnification reference numbers are viewable from the shooter’s position.

Enhanced mount ring spacing
Provides greater mounting versatility.

One-piece main body tube
For minimum weight and maximum strength and durability.

Waterproof, fogproof, shockproof
Nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed.

ARD Technology
Removable ARD eliminates objective lens glare.

Locking side focus parallax adjustment
Nikon’s easy-to-reach dial allows you to quickly focus from a shooting position.
