Nikon P-Tactical SPUR Reflex Sight

The new SPUR is Nikon’s first reflex sight. It’s built for use on handguns, rifles, and shotguns, and it’s part of the company’s newly created P-Tactical line of optics and accessories.


The P-Tactical line also includes riflescopes: the P-Tactical Rimfire 2-7X 32mm BDC 150 riflescope, the P-Tactical Rimfire 2-7X 32mm MK1-MOA riflescope, the P-Tactical 3-9X 40mm MK1-MOA riflescope, the P-Tactical 3-9X 40mm MK1-MRAD riflescope, the P-Tactical .223 3X 32mm BDC riflescope, the P-Tactical .223 1.5-4X 20mm BDC 600 riflescope, the P-Tactical .223 3-9X 40mm BDC 600 riflescope, the P-Tactical .223 4-12X 40mm BDC 600 riflescope, the P-Tactical 300 BLK 2-7X 32mm BDC riflescope, the P-Tactical .308 4-12X 40mm BDC 800 riflescope, and various mounts.

The SPUR features a 3-MOA electronic dot that is red in color. It is powered by one CR1632 battery, which is said to last up to 15,000 hours of continuous use. The unit has 10 brightness settings, with the first two being night vision compatible. The dot is adjustable for windage and elevation.

The SPUR’s chassis is made of aluminum alloy, and the unit includes a removable Picatinny rail mount. The sight measures 1.8x1.1x1.0 inches and weighs 1.1 ounces. The sighting window measures 16x27mm.


The SPUR also features fully multicoated lenses and Nikon’s proprietary TRUCOLOR coating. Other nice features include unlimited eye relief, low-battery indicator, and protective cover for when the sight is not in use. It’s shockproof and waterproof, and it’s covered by a five-year warranty.

I installed my review sample SPUR on the brand-new Thompson/Center T/CR22 .22 LR semiautomatic rifle detailed in another “Quick Shot” report in this issue and banged away at paper targets and steel plates. I also used it while hunting fox squirrels in the timber on my family farm. The sight functioned perfectly, and its red dot was easy to see in varying light conditions. It’s a nice addition to Nikon’s line of excellent and affordable optics.

MSRP: $219.95
