Nikon designed the MONARCH around an optical system created to give shooters increased versatility and superlative performance with virtually any type of rifle, in any caliber and in any imaginable hunting situation.
Tested and proven in the field by Nikon PROSTAFF members, these riflescopes will help you bring home the big bucks without spending them. Whether you hunt with a rifle, shotgun or rimfire, you can rest easy knowing that Nikon will never cut corners on: optics, ruggedness or precision.
Nikon has a full range of AR riflescopes engineered to accommodate virtually any AR platform rifle. Every one is optimized for Spot On Ballistic Match Technology, enabling exact precision with virtually any caliber or load.
These dedicated muzzleloader riflescopes help shooters realize the full potential of their muzzleloaders. The patented BDC 300 reticle allows muzzleloader hunters to confidently shoot out to 300 yards.
Designed with ultra-rugged recoil-proof construction, an ideal power range and Nikon's legendary optics, Nikon's handgun riflescopes will satisfy all the needs of the most demanding handgun hunters, varminters and competitors.
Engineered to extend your ethical hunting range beyond anything you thought possible, the SlugHunter BDC 200 riflescope features Nikon’s advanced ballistic reticle technology for accurate shots out to 200 yards.
Nikon Crossbow Scopes not only provide Nikon’s trademark brightness and clarity, but a huge field of view, quick focus eyepiece and a BDC (Bolt Drop Compensating) reticle that puts long range capability into the hands of the horizontal bowhunter!

Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Wind Meter plugs directly into the headphone port found on almost all smart phones. The Spot On Wind Meter takes an accurate reading of the wind speed and direction and inputs the data directly into the Spot On Ballistic Match Technology application that every serious hunter and shooter should have on their smart phone. Now, the Spot On app not only provides the precise aiming point on your reticle to compensate for distance, but thanks to the new Spot On Wind Meter, you can also compensate for wind drift.
A majority of Nikon riflescopes are compatible with Nikon's Spot On Custom Turret Technology–offering the option for shooters to use the elevation turret to compensate for bullet drop and make accurate long-range shots holding dead-on the crosshair. Each Spot On Custom Turret is personalized for an individual shooter based on ballistic information he or she enters on the online ordering page on NikonSportOptics.com. Select your ammunition, riflescope, typical atmospheric conditions and much more to create your own uniquely calibrated turret that is sent to you for easy installation.
Nikon has a full range of riflescope reticles developed to fit virtually every shooting preference and need. From our long time standard Nikoplex or the fast pointing German #4, to our proprietary BDC family of reticles, Nikon builds every reticle to be recoil-proof and to offer simplicity and ease of sighting and shooting.
The BDC reticle allows hunters to hold “dead-on” at ranges exceeding those previously thought possible. The BDC’s unique see-through ballistic circles offer an incredible advantage for long range shooting—yet allow a normal sight picture for shorter-range shots where the crosshair itself is the aiming point.
The 3-9x40 BDC 200 newly enhanced reticle is designed to be sighted in at 50 yards at 9x and now includes four “ballistic circles” that represent 100, 150, 175 and 200 yard aiming points. The 1.65-5x36 BDC 200 reticle is designed to be sighted in at 50 yards at 5x with two “ballistic circles” that represent 100-yard and 150-yard aiming points, with the lower post representing 200 yards.
Developed specifically for the trajectory of the .223 Rem 5.56 NATO round with 55-grain polymer tip bullet.
The BDC Handgun reticle is optimized for handguns in the following rifle calibers and bullet weights with velocities between 2500 and 2600 fps: 7mm-08 Rem., 140 gr. bullet; 308 Win., 165 gr. bullet; 270 Win, 130 gr. bullet; 30-06, 165 gr. bullet.
Available exclusively on the 1-4x20 M-223, the Point Blank Reticle delivers fast, extremely accurate shots from zero out to a 200 yard “point blank range” for the 223/5.56mm 55 grain projectile round. The reticle features thick outer posts for fast target reacquisition with a purpose-designed center dot that provides instant targeting paper and steel targets at various distances. Just cover the target center with the dot and shoot.
An all-new reticle named for its function—precision. The Precision Reticle is designed to draw the eye into the small dot at the reticle center, which is just large enough to create a focal point without covering a small target bullseye.
The all-new SuperSub Reticle is designed for the ballistic profiles of the .300 ACC Black cartridge in both supersonic and subsonic loads.
