NIKON BLACK X1000 6x14x50SF AR-10 SCOPES

NIKON BLACK X1000 6x14x50SF AR-10 SCOPE

To me it appears Nikon is phasing out the M-308 series dedicated 308 scopes. Possibly replacing them with new “X1000 Black Series“. Overall specifications are improved while maintaining the most popular price point. Nikon seems to be promoting their lifetime warranty as well. No doubt the new BLACK X1000 scopes are in direct response to Vortex scopes massive popularity. We look forward to some hands on with the Nikon Black X1000 6x14x50SF very soon.

The Nikon Black X1000 6x14x50SF scope is ideal for most medium to medium long range AR 308 and AR-10 shooters. The 6X on the low might be too much magnification for very close ranges where a 3x bottom end would be better suited.


NIKON BLACK X1000 6x14x50SF AR 308, AR-10 SCOPE

Nikon BLACK riflescope series represents a new category of dedicated optics with models engineered for both precision long-range rifle and the action-gun AR enthusiasts. For the precision rifle shooter, BLACK X1000 models feature MRAD or MOA reticles while AR/MSR shooters can take advantage of rapid-action, close-to-intermediate-range targeting capability of the BLACK FORCE1000 riflescope and SPEEDFORCE reticle.

The 4-16x50SF is a dedicated precision riflescope that offers the precision, the features and the ruggedness serious shooters demand. For starters, it is built with an aircraft grade aluminum alloy 30mm main body tube. With a choice of X-MOA, Illuminated X-MOA or Illuminated X-MRAD reticle, the riflescope delivers 90 total MOA internal adjustment travel for the X-MOA reticle and 25 MRAD for X-MRAD reticles. Its turrets have ¼ MOA or .1 MRAD click graduations yielding 12 MOA / 5 MRAD per revolution depending on variant. All of the 4-16x50SF models have the reticle placed in the riflescope’s second focal plane, so all holdover corrections, ranging and other measurements using the indicated reticle subtensions should be done at 16x magnification.

Specialized reticles and adjustment systems in BLACK X1000 are glass-etched MRAD or MOA tactical-style variants with illuminated option. Windage and elevation turret internal travel is enhanced for long-range dialing and crisp, click-stop movements operate with no backlash and are both precise and repeatable. The X-MRAD reticle presents the shooter with clean and visually simple, yet highly functional and advanced tools for estimating range, maintaining holdovers or dialing elevation come ups and compensating for wind. An advantage of using these tactical-style reticles is that it can be applied to virtually any shooting application regardless of caliber or ballistic performance, and can be further optimized for specific shooting situations utilizing Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic Match Technology.

Full Multilayer Coatings On All Air-to-Glass Surfaces

With a very capable four-time zoom optical system built with Nikon’s renowned lead- and arsenic-free glass, BLACK X1000 lenses are fully multicoated with anti-reflective compounds for consistently bright, sharp, high contrast sighting at all magnifications.

Turret-mounted Side Focus Parallax Adjustment

Each of the riflescopes in this series features a turret-mounted side focus parallax adjustment to enable fine-tuning of the sight image without changing shooter’s position.

Generous, Consistent Eye Relief and Elevated Windage & Elevation Turrets

Consistent eye relief keeps your brow safe, while the exposed turrets are engraved for maximum readability while offering smooth, repeatable adjustments.
