There has been serious buzz over the PROSTAFF 7 Riflescope series, and now Nikon Sport Optics has announced its release.
Because the PROSTAFF 7 riflescope has a 30mm main body tube, it provides a wider maximum internal adjustment range (90-140 MOA depending on model), which is useful for dialing in the elevation and windage adjustments needed for long-range shots.
The PROSTAFF 7 sports Nikon’s Spring-Loaded Instant Zero-Reset Turrets that allow the user to return the turrets to the zero mark after sighting in, so that subsequent adjustments are simpler.
Whether the situation calls for a long-range shot or a close-range shot, the PROSTAFF 7 has you covered, thanks to a 4-time zoom ratio on all models. Each magnification is offered with either a Nikoplex or BDC reticle. The BDC reticle utilizes a unique set of circles as aiming points for various ranges and is most effective when used with Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic Match Technology.
Hunters throughout the world have been using the Spot On program to compensate for bullet drop at extended ranges. The Spot On program provides users with exact aiming points on the BDC reticle for any load or ammunition at a specified range. It contains the ballistic information for more than 5,000 different loads and can even be used with custom handloads.
With more than one million registered users, Spot On has become the number one choice for hunters and shooters throughout the world and is available as an app for iPhone, iPad and Android and is also available for free at NikonSportOptics.com/spoton.
The Fully-Multicoated lenses found in the PROSTAFF 7 riflescope live up to the Nikon name by delivering bright, clear images with well-balanced color. Perhaps most importantly, the lenses offer the superior light transmission needed to make a shot in the ever-important low-light situation.
The PROSTAFF 7 riflescope line-up also has many of the key features that shooters have come to expect from Nikon, including generous eye relief, quick focus eyepiece and user-friendly ¼-inch click-stop adjustments. Side Focus parallax adjustment is also featured on the 3-12×42, 4-16×42 and 4-16×50 models and a sunshade is included with 4-16×42 and 4-16×50 models.
