Accuracy At Any Distance
The M-223 3-12x42 with side focus parallax adjustment lays down a serious power range for your most extreme shooting. Implements the new Rapid Action Turret technology to position the Nikoplex reticle on-target at virtually any yardage up to 600 yards.
Rapid Action Turret Technology with Spring-Loaded Instant Zero Reset Feature
This incredible new system, based on a .223/5.56mm 55-grain polymer tipped bullet, simply and effectively allows you to dial in your elevation anywhere from 100 to 600 yards away in less than one revolution! Now you can stay in the middle of your Nikoplex crosshair at virtually any shooting distance with a quick turn of the turret. Just sight in at 100 yards as usual, then lift the adjustment knob, rotate to your “zero”, and re-engage. Field adjustments are now as simple as dialing-in your subsequent ranges.
Ultra ClearCoat® optical system
Nikon has engineered the entire optical system to provide the shooter with a bright, sharp, incredibly flat sight picture and light transmission up to its theoretical maximum—95%, allowing for a clear sight picture from dawn to dusk.
Eye Box Technology
Every model features an impressive 4-time zoom range and four inches of constant, non-critical eye relief, even at extreme shooting angles. A massive ocular lens delivers a huge, exceptionally bright, high-resolution sight picture.
Many M-223 models can be mounted to virtually any rifle action regardless of the actual caliber, even magnum length actions.
Now Compatible with Spot On Custom Turrets
The M-223 is now compatible with Spot On Custom Turrets -- a practical way for shooters to compensate for bullet drop and make accurate long-range shots. Each Spot On Custom Turret is personalized for an individual shooter based on ballistic information he or she enters on the online ordering page. Select your ammunition, riflescope, typical atmospheric conditions and much more to create your own uniquely calibrated turret.
The high magnification range zoom makes it the ideal optic for heavy barrel AR15 platforms. Includes removable ARD objective lens glare eliminator.
Precise, 1/4-Inch at 100 Yards Reticle Adjustments
Positive click reticle adjustments get you zeroed in quicker and maintain your setting—even with repeated recoil To simplify field adjustments. Just sight-in as usual, then lift the spring-loaded adjustment knob, rotate to your “zero”, and reengage. Field adjustments are now as simple as dialing-in your subsequent ranges.
