New Nikon PROSTAFF P5 Riflescopes
Nikon introduces the all-new PROSTAFF P5 riflescope line. This new lineup features a one-inch main body tube and a 4x zoom ratio. This provides a wide field of view, as well as better light transmission across the entire range of the scope’s magnification.
The optical system of the PROSTAFF P5 was created around Nikon’s lead-and-arsenic-free glass that is fully multicoated with anti-reflective compounds, providing consistently bright images in all lighting conditions. Engineered for minimum weight and maximum strength, the PROSTAFF P5 features an all-aluminum zoom ring, focusing eyepiece and turret caps with matched knurling for increased grip.
The PROSTAFF P5 is the first one-inch tube riflescope in Nikon’s hunting lineup to offer its new MK1-MOA long-range reticle. 1/4-MOA turrets, the MK1-MOA reticle provides precise visual reference points for ranging, holdovers and windage corrections.
The BDC reticle and Nikoplex reticles are also offered for those that either wants a ballistic compensating reticle or a single aiming point respectively. All reticle options are supported by Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic App for quick referencing in any field situation.
Included in the PROSTAFF P5 lineup are long-range models that offer turret-mounted side focus parallax adjustment to enable finely tuned sight picture without the need to break cheek weld. The generous eye relief on all PROSTAFF P5 models allows quick target acquisition and helps keep brows safe––even during heavy recoil.
