Nikon introduces a new line of purpose-designed riflescopes just in time for the upcoming hunting season and summer shooting activities. The new PROSTAFF P3 line-up of scopes includes eight new models specifically designed for muzzleloaders, slug guns, predator hunting, crossbows and rimfires/air rifles.
The new Nikon riflescope family consists of platform-specific models bearing PROSTAFF P3 MUZZLELOADER, PROSTAFF P3 SHOTGUN, PROSTAFF P3 PREDATOR HUNTER, PROSTAFF P3 CROSSBOW and PROSTAFF P3 TARGET EFR names. Shared features throughout the line include bright, fully multicoated optics, crisp hand-turn reticle adjustments (1/4 MOA except for the CROSSBOW model's 1 MOA graduations) and generous consistent eye relief. Other features common through the family include rugged, all-aluminum one-inch main body tubes, turret caps and eyepiece quick focus adjustment rings (with rubber insert). The zoom ring on variable power models is also aluminum.
Each of the PROSTAFF P3 hunting riflescope models integrate a specialized Nikon BDC reticle designed for the specific application at hand, including the BDC 300 muzzleloader reticle, BDC 200 slug gun reticle, BDC Predator reticle and BDC 60 crossbow reticle.
Each of the BDC reticles can be optimized for many ballistic aiming possibilities using virtually any load. These can be calculated with the use of either the Spot On Ballistic Match Technology app or website software.
The PROSTAFF P3 TARGET EFR (extended focus range) model utilizes Nikon's Precision reticle, designed to draw the eye into the small dot at the reticle center for precise aiming at small air gun and rimfire targets. This specialty target model features an adjustable objective lens for parallax-free focusing from 10-yards to infinity.
Suggested retail price for the PROSTAFF P3 specialty riflescope models ranges from $159.95 to $299.95.
