Nikon Riflescopes

Based in Japan, Nikon has been in the optical business since 1917.  Originally founded by three of Japan's largest optical equipment manufacturers, Nikon quickly expanded it's product line to and grew into an international optical giant.  In addition to rifle scopes, their current product offering includes cameras, binoculars, spotting scopes, laser range finders, and imaging equipment just to name a few.  The rifle scope division of Nikon, called Nikon sport Optics, is based in El Segundo, CA.

Since it's inception, Nikon has focused on offering high quality rifle scope models that would compete with the Swiss and German scope makers.  Featuring precision made Japanese lenses, Nikon also utilizes one piece aircraft grade aluminum, along with a proprietary lens coating technology called Ultra Clearcoat. This technology provides 95 light transmission through the lens, even during low light.  When yo consider how many critical shots are taken during low light situations, it's easy to see why Nikon is a major player in the rifle scope industry. Most all the Nikon scope series are also waterproof, fogproof, and shock resistant.

Nikon features a number of scopes for nearly any needs including:

  • Hunting
  • Target shooting
  • long range shooting
  • Pistol shooting
  • Blackpowder
  • Rimfire
  • Shotgun

With a diverse offering of riflescopes, you should be able to find one that meets both your needs and budget.

While Nikon offers a number of different scope models, some are better known than others.  Here is a quick rundown of the better known scope series:

Monarch - The Monarch series is considered Nikon's top of the line offering.  Within the Monarch series, there are also other lines called the Monarch Gold and Monarch X.  Both are higher end precision style target scopes. This particular model of scope is well known for its ruggedness of design while combining optical performance that delivers time after time. All of the scopes in this line feature eyepieces with quick-focus as well as windage and elevation adjustments that can be easily clicked by hand so there is no loss of motion, speed or convenience. The Nikon Monarch series was one of the first scopes to utilize a side focus set-up over a traditional focus.

Buckmaster - The Buckmaster series is a step down below the Monarch.  The Buckmaster lineup from Nikon rifle scopes also works well in a variety of field situations. Like just about every other scope from the Nikon lineup, this series of scopes enjoys strong waterproof, fogproof and shockproof construction, allowing it to perform under many different field conditions. A scratch-resistant matte finish along with a no-glare construction complete the great benefits offered by the Buckmaster series. The Buckmaster is also available in a side focus configuration.

ProStaff - The Prostaff series is one of Nikon's most popular series as it's their budget line.  Don't let that fool you as the ProStaff series offers quite a bit of scope for the money.

Omega - The Omega is one of the first rifle scopes that was designed specifically for muzzleloaders.  It features a BDC (bullet drop compensator) so muzzleloaders can now extend their shooting range to over 250 years.

As another added bonus, Nikon has one of the strongest riflescope warranty programs in the scope industry.  They offer a lifetime warranty on every Nikon scope. The warranty applies to any owner and doesn't require a warranty card or prior registration to be valid.  In short, it's a very easy program to use.
