The NIKON M-223 3-12×42 SF Rifle Scope, BDC-600 Reticle, Matte Black (8489) with side focus parallax adjustment lays down a serious power range for your most extreme shooting. For long range shooting speed and precision, this model riflescope helps you take full advantage of the performance of the .223 round – from zero out to 600 yards.
Nikon has engineered the Ultra ClearCoat optical system to provide the shooter with a bright, sharp, incredibly flat sight picture and light transmission up to its theoretical maximum – 95%.
With an impressive 4-time zoom range and four inches of constant, non-critical eye relief, the M-223 riflescope features massive ocular lenses that deliver a huge, exceptionally bright, high-resolution sight picture.
The M-223 rifle scope features smooth zoom control – magnification reference numbers are viewable from the shooter’s position. This model scope has a one-piece main body tube for minimum weight and maximum strength and durability.
Developed specifically for the trajectory of the .223 Remington/5.56mm NATO round with 55 grain polymer tip bullet, the BDC 600 reticle offers shooters unique open circle aiming points at 200, 300, 400, 500 and 600 yards with additional hash-marks at 250. 350, 450 and 550 yards.
In addition, the Nikon M-223 riflescope is waterproof, fogproof as well as shockproof. It is nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed.
The M-223 3-12×42 SF Riflescope is covered by Nikon’s Full Lifetime Warranty.
The Nikon M-223 2-8×32 riflescope was put through a vigorous test by a Field & Stream panel of judges and awarded “Best of the Best” for 2010. The staff of testers agreed the M-223 is innovative and the absolute best in optics.
Recognizing the popularity of AR rifles, Nikon has developed a new line of riflescopes built to deliver extreme speed, accuracy and shooting confidence. The M-223 line offers five new riflescopes, all engineered for the .223 Rem./5.56mm NATO round with 55-grain polymer tipped bullet with a muzzle velocity of 3240fps. With Nikon’s latest reticle and adjustment technologies, the M-223 integrates the same level of quality as the flagship Monarch riflescopes.
“Field & Stream’s “Best of the Best” recognizes outstanding products in our industry,” said Jon LaCorte, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Nikon Sport Optics. “We are thrilled our M-223 Series was selected as Field & Stream 2010′s “Best of the Best.”
The 2-8×32 is available with Nikon’s all new BDC 600 reticle or the Nikoplex reticle with Nikon’s new Rapid Action Turret system; both are ballistically matched to the 223 Rem. round and offer unprecedented speed in dialing-in your shots for virtually any known distance-from 0 to 600 yards.
The M-223 2-8×32 comes standard with Nikon’s Anti Reflective Device (ARD) to eliminate objective lens glare. MSRP is $349.95 for the 2-8×32 with BDC 600 reticle and $329.95 for the 2-8×32 with Nikoplex reticle.
