New Optic: Nikon Prostaff P3 Crossbow
Adam Scepaniak 07.17.18
Nikon recently introduced an entirely new series of scopes for consumers that covers the complete gamut of shooting sports. Everything from muzzleloading to rifles to crossbows to keep everyone satisfied. One that might intrigue you the most is the NEW Nikon Prostaff P3 Crossbow 3x32mm BDC 60.
This scope has one of Nikon‘s specialized reticles on the inside to maker the shooter’s life a lot easier (no Kentucky windage required). A few other features that could entice consumers are the externally adjustable turrets with a zero-reset (no coins needed to make adjustments) and a Lifetime Warranty if anything crazy were to happen out in the field. The rest of the specifications for this model can be read below:
- Fully Multi-Coated Optical System: Multiple layers of anti-reflective compounds on every glass surface provide bright and vivid sight pictures, optimum light transmission and maximum brightness from dawn to dusk.
- BDC 60 Crossbow Reticle: Designed for a variety of crossbow bolt, point weights and velocities, the reticle’s 20-yard ‘zero’ provides corresponding aiming point circles for shots out to 60–and even beyond 80 yards–depending upon the bolt length, weight, point weight and velocity.
- Hand-turn 1 MOA Adjustments & Spring-Loaded Instant Zero-Reset Turrets: Reticle adjustments are made in crisp, positive 1-MOA click-stop moves you can both feel and hear. Turret caps are all-aluminum construction for lasting durability. Spring-loaded windage and elevation knobs can be reset to “zero” after sighting-in for easy reference when making field adjustments. Windage and elevation turrets are clearly marked for quick adjustments.
- Rugged One-inch Aircraft Grade Aluminum Main Tube: Lightweight-yet-durable construction.
- Aluminum Quick Focus Eyepiece & Generous, Consistent Eye Relief: All-metal construction for trouble-free rotation and rugged performance with generous eye relief, to help you get on target quickly.
LIFETIME REPAIR/REPLACEMENT: Excludes lost or stolen products and intentionally caused damage, and also excludes Nikon Rangefinders, Reflex Sights, Red Dot Sights, StabilEyes Binoculars & Specialty Optics.
The new Nikon Prostaff P3 Crossbow 3x32mm BDC 60 has a current MSRP of $159.95 to start out. While other scopes within the P3 series have multiple magnification offerings, this will be the only one dedicated for archers. Nikon goes on to elaborate a little more about this scope with a short, but concise public statement:
The new PROSTAFF P3 CROSSBOW is an ideal choice for hunters looking to upgrade the optic on their crossbows this season. Signature Nikon optical performance coupled with a proprietary BDC reticle designed specifically to maximize the range and efficiency of today’s hunting crossbows.
