Nikon has introduced a new line of rifle scopes intended for the black rifle and precision target shooting market. The new optics feature options such as choice of X-MOA, Illuminated X-MOA, or Illuminated X-MRAD reticle and 6-24 magnification.
The Black optics are designed to be shockproof, waterproof, fogproof, and are O-ring sealed with a nitrogen purge. In short, the new Black optics are designed to be totally reliable.
Whether you are target shooting, hunting, or in an AR-15 competition, there is probably an optic here to fit your needs.
Black X1000 – 4-16x50SF with a choice of X-MOA, Illuminated X-MOA or Illuminated X-MRAD reticle. Estimated retail $499.95.
Black X1000 – 6-24x50SF, turret-mounted side focus parallax adjustment and With an Illuminated X-MRAD reticle. Estimated retail $649.95.
With 6-24, I envision someone hunting antelope with this new Nikon black optic.
BLACK X1000 – 4-16x50SF, choice of X-MOA, Illuminated X-MOA or Illuminated X-MRAD reticle, and turret-mounted side focus parallax adjustment. Estimated retail of around $599.95.
BLACK FORCE1000 – 1x magnification and 4x zoom, 30mm tube, capped windage and elevation turrets and estimated retail of $399.95. This optic was designed with the AR shooter in mind and offers enhanced target acquisition capability and repeatable precision shooting.
Besides action shooting or competition, this looks like it would be an all around good hunting optic for the AR-15. I could see this on an AR hunting hogs in a river bottom.
