Nikon Offers a Variety of Scope Mounts for AR Platform Rifles

It’s important to match the right optic to an AR platform rifle. What’s equally important is the mount used to attach it. AR platform rifles are much different in basic design than your typical bolt-action rifle. The comb height of the stock, the eye relief allowed by the stock length, the necessary access to the charging handle, typical shooting distances and other characteristics must be considered when choosing the mount.

Nikon has a full range of AR scope mounts that offer shooters exactly what they need for a particular optic and for their particular AR. All built of strong, lightweight alloy, the mounts securely attach your preferred optic to your AR platform’s Picatinny rail.

P-Series Mount
This two-piece design allows proper mounting height and proper fore-aft positioning for ideal shooting technique and comfortable eye relief. It also provides necessary, easy access to the charging handle. The P-Series mounts are perfect for standard size scopes and are also reversible for ultra compact scopes. MSRP is $49.95.

M-223 Mount
This one-piece mount was developed specifically for the Nikon M-223 riflescope series. Strong, one-piece construction with multiple crossbolts fits the Picatinny rails securely and makes your scope one with your AR. MSRP is $79.95.

M-223 XR Mount
An extreme range variation of the standard M-223 mount, the M-223 XR features a built-in 20 MOA slope, which provides extreme long-range capability to your AR and optic combination. In essence, it adds 20 minutes of angle to the elevation adjustment of your riflescope – a natural choice for the new Nikon M-223 4-16×42 optic. MSRP is $99.95.

Nikon Inc. is the distributor of Nikon sports and recreational optics, world-renowned Nikon 35mm cameras, digital cameras, speedlights and accessories, Nikkor lenses and electronic imaging products.

Cut the Darkness with the NIGHTRAZOR

March 21, 2012 – posted in On the Trail,

NightRazorOur buddies over at Tri-Tronics have a pretty slick new little spotlight out on the market. The NIGHTRAZOR kicks out 180 lumens of bright white light.  Even cooler, it’s just three inches in diameter, weighs less than 5.5 ounces, and doesn’t require any cords or external battery packs.

The light was designed with hound hunters in mind, who normally take to the woods in the pitch-black night.  Without a doubt, it’ll fit that bill.  But it’s equally useful for hunters who need help finding their way to and from their blind in the dark — something we experienced during a recent Oklahoma wild hog hunt.

NightRazor2

Compared to other spotlights on the trip, the NIGHTRAZOR won hands-down when considering beam diameter, beam distance, size, weight, and battery life.  That’s got us thinking that campers, hikers, long distance endurance runners, or cyclists will appreciate the NIGHTRAZOR — anyone who’s looking for a powerful, yet lightweight way to illuminate their way.

The NIGHTRAZOR features four beam intensities and has a battery life of 2.7 hours to 40 hours, depending on intensity.  At the end of the day (er, night), the NIGHTRAZOR can be recharged through the included USB cradle and wall charger.  The NIGHTRAZOR can be easily mounted on any standard bump cap, and an elastic headband accessory will be available later this spring.
