Nikon recently introduced of the new BLACK riflescope series—engineered for both precision long-range rifle and action shooting AR enthusiasts.

For the precision rifle shooter, Nikon's BLACK X1000 is offered in a range of 4-16x50 and 6-24x50 models with X-MRAD or X-MOA tactical-style reticles synchronized to elevated windage and elevation turrets.

Looking for rapid-action targeting capability with AR/MSR platforms? You may be interested in the new BLACK FORCE1000 1-4x24 riflescope with capped turrets and SpeedForce reticle.

Additionally, the new BLACK series reticles can be further optimized for specific shooting situations utilizing Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Match Technology.

All BLACK series riflescopes feature a 30mm main body tube built with aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and Type 3 hard anodizing. Each riflescope has an optical system built from Nikon's lead- and arsenic-free glass Eco-Glass, which is optimized with the company's full multilayer coating on all air-to-glass lens surfaces. The spring-loaded instant zero-reset turrets provide precise, repeatable corrections.

MSRP: $400-$650 depending on the model. The Nikon BLACK riflescope series will be available this spring.
