Nikon MONARCH 5 Riflescope Line
Nikon's MONARCH 5 Riflescope

Nikon may have saved its best product of 2015 for last.

The company recently introduced its all new MONARCH 5 riflescope line, something Nikon says will “be a flagship product for years to come.”

Not only does the MONARCH 5 riflescope line feature Nikon’s ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass lenses, it is also the first Nikon riflescope to utilize the new Advanced BDC reticle and has an incredible 5-time zoom ratio for superior close-quarters and long-range effectiveness.

The new glass-etched Advanced BDC reticle, similar to the standard BDC reticle, has unique open circles going down the vertical sight post that are used as aiming points to compensate for bullet drop at extended ranges.

What differentiates the Advanced BDC reticle is that it also has windage marks on both the left and right side of the post. Each windage mark is calibrated for a 10-mile-per-hour cross wind when the rifle is zeroed at either 100 or 200 yards. Even if the cross wind is more or less than 10 mph, shooters now have a reliable benchmark to compensate for the effect that a strong gust of wind can have on their point of impact.

The MONARCH 5 retails for $849.95 and is available now.
