The M-Tactical Scope Series is the result of Nikon’s effort to make a tactical riflescope using the best possible optical glass, highest quality materials, and innovative riflescope design. M-Tactical scopes are available in three magnifications: 1-4x, 3-12x, and 4-16x. The optical glass used in M-Tactical Series riflescopes is fully multicoated for superior clarity, contrast, and brightness. Additionally the reticles in these scopes are designed for platform focused ballistics. M-Tactical Series riflescopes four reticle types: MK1-MOA, MK1-MRAD, BDC 600 (for .223/5.56x45mm) and BDC 800 (for .308/7.62x51mm). The long range focused Nikon M-Tactical models feature Side Focus Parallax Adjustments that allow you to make corrections without compromising your shooting position.

Purchased this scope several years ago for my Armalite AR-10 sniper rifle and I could not be happier. Using Nikon's Spot on app you just pick your ammo or put in the specs for your reloads and you will hit right where you aim. I have carried this scope through the dirt, mud and even dropped it a few times but the scope just keeps doing its job without fail. The glass is the best you will ever see for under the $2K price range. And what you get for that kind of money isn't that much better for the price. The adjustments have a crisp feel and sound and it will dial back to zero every time. What more could you want in a scope.

Very clear glass - good reticle ..wonderful build quality. I wish Nikon would stay in the business .. they make some good stuff at the price point. Separate topic ... EO is GREAT -- at EVERYTHING .. prompt shipping, good prices, EXCELLENT communication .. (that means you, Ari) .. I'll be a EO customer from now on.

Great scope! Far better than its price would suggest. Mounted on my 7.62 AR plenty of scope for a precision AR.

This scope was the 5th Nikon scope I've purchased this year and the clarity of resolution, adjustment turrets, BDC reticle and matte finished aircraft grade aluminium construction make Nikon rifle scopes the "best bang for the buck." They work well on my firearms utilizing the Spot-On app.

This product is awesome for beginner hunters to train how to use scopes and it’s fun to use even if you’re a professional when you look into it it’s very easy to make out everything that the scope is trained on.
