Nikon debuted the new BlackĀ riflescopes series dedicated to precision long-range rifle and AR action shooters, available Spring 2017.

For precision rifles shooters, Nikon created the BlackĀ X1000 with a range of 4-16Ɨ50 and 6-24Ɨ50 models with X-MRAD or X-MOA tactical-style reticles. These are synched to elevated windage and elevation turrets. The adjustments, both accurate and repeatable, allow shooters to precisely dial in measurements, while the reticle designs provide visually clean and highly functional tool for estimating range or maintaining holdovers.

Action shooters looking for rapid targeting capabilities on AR/MSR platforms have the BlackĀ Force1000 1-4Ɨ24 riflescope. The scopes features capped turrets and SpeedForce reticle. When dialed down to 1x magnification, the reticleā€™s illuminated double horseshoe center acts as quick reference for reactionary target acquisition. This can also be used for establishing moving target leads. The SpeedForce MOA reticle integrates BDC circles as well as hash marks for intermediate-range target holdovers.

All BlackĀ series scopes features a 30mm main body tube with aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, giving shooters a rugged, durable scope. In addition the scopes are covered under Nikonā€™s No Fault policy for repair and replacement.Ā The BlackĀ series retails forĀ $399.95.
