Nikon Adds Illuminated MOA Reticle Option to BLACK X1000 6-24×50

Monday, July 10th, 2017

Melville, NY (July 11, 2017) – Nikon introduces another member to the recently introduced BLACK riflescope series, a new category of dedicated optics with models engineered for both precision long-range rifle and action-shooting AR enthusiasts.

For the precision rifle shooter, Nikon’s BLACK X1000 is now offered in a 6-24x50SF Matte Illuminated X-MOA tactical-style reticle synchronized to elevated windage and elevation turrets. Accurate and repeatable, the adjustments enable precise dialing of elevation come ups and wind compensation, while the new reticle design presents the shooter with a visually clean, yet highly functional and advanced tool for estimating range or maintaining holdovers.

The BLACK X1000 features a Side Focus Parallax Adjustment, which allows adjustment without changing shooting position and Illuminated control with 10 intensity levels with incremental “OFF” between settings, allowing you to be at your favorite illumination setting with “OFF” rotating in either direction.

BLACK series riflescopes all feature a 30mm main body tube built with aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and Type 3 hard anodizing, providing exceptional ruggedness and optimum strength-to-weight ratios. Each riflescope has an optical system built from Nikon’s lead- and arsenic-free glass, which is optimized with the company’s full multilayer coating on all air-to-glass lens surfaces. Spring-loaded instant zero-reset turrets provide precise, repeatable corrections. Like all Nikon riflescopes, the new BLACK series is backed by the company’s No Fault policy for repair or replacement.

Nikon’s new BLACK X1000 6-24x50SF IL X-MOA will be available Summer 2017.

BLACK X1000 6-24x50SF Matte IL X-MOA – $649.95


Nikon Introduces New LaserForce Rangefinder Binocular

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

Melville, NY (April 19, 2017) – Nikon Sport Optics has officially announced the introduction of its highly anticipated binocular with a built-in 1900-yard laser rangefinder. The new LaserForce rangefinder binocular combines superior optical quality, ergonomic single-hand control, technologically enhanced features and a 100% backing with Nikon’s No-Fault Policy. This combination equates to a highly efficient, must-have optic for results-driven hunters and shooters.


LaserForce features a laser capable of ranging distances from 10-1900 yards* with instantaneous readouts on a crisp OLED display. Distances are displayed in 0.1 yd increments to 100 yards, and 1-yard increments over 100 yards. The OLED display offers a 4-step brightness adjustment, making it easily readable under any light conditions and against various objects.

Featuring Nikon’s ID (Incline/Decline) Technology to compensate for the effects that slope has on trajectory, LaserForce provides hunters and shooters with the compensated range necessary to make the shot, whether uphill, downhill or on level ground.

The 10×42 binocular component of the optic features ED (Extra-low dispersion) Glass. This superior glass corrects chromatic aberration that causes color fringing for high-resolution, contrast-rich images. Additionally, full multilayer-coated lenses and prisms and a reflective mirror coating that is applied on the mirror surface of the roof prism unit reveal pristine images. The long eye relief design, combined with turn-and-slide rubber eyecups facilitate a custom fit for users’ individual viewing needs, with or without eyeglasses.

The overall design of LaserForce was engineered with the specific needs of hunters and shooters traveling the world’s most rugged types of terrain. The rubber armoring conforming to a metal die-cast body provides a highly durable exterior with a grip that is tailored to the texture and shape of the human hand. LaserForce is also completely waterproof/fogproof with a nitrogen-purged body that prevents fogging or molding inside the optical system, even under significant changes in temperature.

With an MSRP of $1,199.95, LaserForce is the single optic solution for serious hunters and shooters who mandate a high-quality binocular to acquire a distant target and a dependable laser to range the exact distance before taking the shot.
