Nikon has added the new Monarch 30mm Riflescope series to its line of hunting and shooting optics. Available in 1.5-6X42mm, 2.5-10X50mm, and 2.5-10X56mm models, the Monarch scopes were developed with the same technology used in building Nikon's Tactical Riflescope line and are designed to feature greater tube strength, wider range and elevation travel, and a broader light path from objective to eyepiece lens than typical one-inch tube scopes. All three Monarch scopes utilize quick-focus eyepieces with a twist and lock design to provide +/-5 diopter adjustment for quick and easy focus control. A rubber ring that allows easy gripping with gloved hands protects the end of the eyepiece. Positive, audible-click 1/4MOA windage end elevation adjustments make zeroing easyReticle choices include traditional Nikoplex or a German No. 4 reticle.
