"Rock Your Rimfire": Nikon Offering $50 Rebate on Rimfire Scopes

Just in time for spring plinking, Nikon is offering a $50 mail-in rebate on qualifying rimfire scopes.

If you purchase a Nikon ProStaff rimfire scope between tomorrow, March 24th and April 28th, you can get more than half off. And Nikon is giving away scope mounts, too.

The $50 “It’s Time Rock Your Rimfire” rebate is for the ProStaff 4×32 Rimfire, the ProStaff 3-9×40 Rimfire BDC 150 and their newest scope, the ProStaff Target EFR 3-9×40. The savings is substantial as they cost about $100, $150 and $200, respectively.

This coincides with Nikon’s current “Mount ’em Up” promotion where anyone who buys an M-223 riflescope is eligible to receive a free M-223XR scope mount (worth $100), and anyone who buys a P-223 or P-22 riflescope is eligible to receive a free P-series set of cantilevered rings (worth $50).

Nikon’s optics are some of the best out there but they always come with a price premium. These promotions make them incredibly competitive with other manufacturers, even when you’re looking at the cheap stuff. Nikon scopes are all nitrogen-filled and o-ring sealed for clarity, with sharp reticles and bright optics.

The ProStaff rimfire scopes 1/4-MOA zero-reset click turrets, multicoated lenses and are waterproof and fogproof. The 3-9×40 scopes are also shockproof.

The 4×32 Rimfire uses a Nikoplex reticle, which is just a duplex crosshair, the BDC 150 uses a BDC reticle, which is a duplex crosshair with rangefinding rings and the Target EFR uses a Precision reticle, which is an ultrafine duplex crosshair with an enlarged center dot. The fixed 4x scope weighs 13 ounces and the two zoom scopes 15.

Nikon is a big name in the world of glass, whether you’re talking about riflescopes, spotting scopes, binoculars or cameras. And while they’ve got riflescopes in models to satisfy every price point, rebates like these make them an even better deal.  Check back tomorrow on their promotion website for details.

Just remember, if you’re planning on plinking away with a brand new ProStaff rimfire scope and mounting it onto a Ruger 10/22 Target, you’d better hurry up and buy both now, as Nikon’s offer is limited and Ruger’s completely backordered.
