Nikon has unveiled an extensive list of new products for 2013. Here is a look at some of the best Nikon has to offer.

Nikon expands its line of precision optics for MSR platform rifles. The popular P-223 riflescope now comes in 4-12x40 with BDC 600 reticle, in a matte finish, and built with fully multicoated lenses. This new scope offers a choice between two methods of bullet drop compensation for the first time. Other features include a quick-focus eyepiece, 3.7 inches of eye relief for safe shooting. The P-223 is waterproof and fogproof at an MSRP of $249.95.

The PROSTAFF 5 riflescope, another addition to Nikon's new product list, features 4-time zoom range along with a new optical system with fully multi-coated lenses, providing up to 95 percent light transmission and allowing the highest amount of brightness. The PROSTAFF 5 comes with spring-loaded instant zero-reset turrets. This riflescope also features four inches of eye relief, a quick-focus eyepiece, and positive click reticle adjustments. The PROSTAFF 5 is waterproof, fogproof and shockproof at an MRSP range of $269.95 to $579.95.

Nikon introduces the new Custom XR Turret Package for select MONARCH 3 and PROSTAFF 5 riflescopes. This package allows shooters to order a customized engraved turret, calibrated to match bullet drop for most factory loads or custom handloads. The Custom XR Turret lets the shooter dial out to extended ranges and keep the crosshairs on the target. The MSRP ranges from $399.95 to $549.95.
