Nikon has unveiled its new Black FX1000 riflescope lineup. The goal here, the company says, is to offer competition-grade first-focal-plane scopes at an affordable price.

Nikon Black FX1000 Riflescopes

These scopes feature your choice of glass-etched FX-MOA or FX-MRAD reticles. These reticles are designed specifically for the first focal plane optical system used in the Black FX1000. Each reticle optimizes the sight picture and gives you the tools you need for ranging, holdover and windage correction, regardless of whether you’re in a match or punching paper.

Also included are high-speed turrets that let you dial-in 25 MOA/10 MRAD of adjustment per revolution. The turrets boast integral zero stop, ensuring that you won’t lose your zero. Each scope has a side focus parallax adjustment on the left side of the turret block for parallax compensation from 50 yards to infinity. A 10-level rheostat control is integrated into the knob on illuminated reticle models. It features intermittent “off” settings between each brightness level.

These scopes feature a choice of glass-etched MOA or MRAD reticles. Furthermore, the reticles are available in 4-16×50 and 6-24×50 variants. The 4-16×50 versions offer 90 MOA/25 MRAD maximum internal adjustments. The 6-24×50 models offer 60 MOA/17 MRAD internal adjustments. In addition, these scopes are built on 30mm tubes from aircraft grade aluminum alloy. They also boast a Type-III hard anodized finish. Finally, they’re waterproof, fogproof and shockproof.

Nikon’s BLACK FX1000 riflescope series ranges from $649.95 to $799.95. Check out the video below for a closer look. For more, visit
