Nikon now offers 14 models in its Prostaff 5 riflescope lineup, with some models featuring illuminated reticles with five intensity levels of red or green, giving shooters an extra advantage during low-light situations. These scopes have a rheostat dimmer on the side-focus knob for easy adjustments.

“These are great riflescopes at a great price,” said Shannon Salyer, a Nikon spokeswoman. “We have every flavor possible in riflescopes for hunters, target shooters and tactical shooters.” The lower-magnification models (2.5-10×40) start at $269.95 (MSRP) and rise in price as the models increase in magnification and special features, topping out at $459.95 in the 4.5-18×40 model.

These scopes are fully multi-coated for crisp, bright sight pictures, and boast hand-turned reticle adjustments, and spring-loaded, instant zero-reset turrets. Simply sight-in as usual, and then lift the spring-loaded adjustment knob, rotate it to “zero,” and re-engage.

The Prostaff 5 models provide a constant four inches of eye relief for clear fields of view and brow protection, even when using heavy-recoiling cartridges. Positive-click reticle adjustments help shooters zero in quickly and maintain their settings.
