Nikon recently announced the release of its newest riflescope, the Black Force100. The new 1-6×24 model expands the capability of the company’s flagship tactical optics line. The Black Force 100 delivers a broader range of magnifications, new reticle design and increased ergonomics to users and their AR-style platforms.

Nikon Black Force100 Features

Nikon’s Glass First engineering principle delivers a true 1X to 6X optical system. The Black Force100 facilitates distortion-free target engagements with both eyes open at 1X. Yet, it still provides precise aiming for precision at extended ranges when zoomed up to 6X. All optical components utilize Nikon’s lead- and arsenic-free glass. Meanwhile, the company’s full multilayer coating optimizes all air-to-glass lens surfaces, according to Nikon.

Nikon developed the all-new, multi-function FORCE-MOA glass-etched reticle specifically for the BLACK FORCE100 optical design. For high speed targeting at true 1x magnification, Nikon’s FORCE-MOA reticle integrates an illuminated 2 MOA red dot to draw the eye toward the center. The MOA-based hash mark design of the lower reticle provides holdover points for longer known ranges as determined through the calculations of a ballistic table or app.

Reticle center dot illumination is controlled by the 10-step rheostat on the left side of the turret housing and features an intermittent “off” between each brightness setting.

Windage and elevation adjustments in the BLACK FORCE100 are accomplished via low profile ¼-MOA turrets The turrets feature a single screw zero-reset to allow for fast zeroing of the turret after sight-ins. Sturdy, low profile turret caps assure extreme durability and total sighting confidence under tough conditions.

The BLACK FORCE100 utilizes a robust, one-piece aluminum 30mm main body tube to provide exceptional ruggedness and optimum strength-to-weight ratios.
