For a great value scope with loads of performance, look no further than the Nikon PROSTAFF 7. Featuring multicoated optics you expect from higher priced scopes, the PROSTAFF 7 is housed in an aircraft aluminum, 30 mm tube for a wider range of adjustability.
The PROSTAFF 7 is a perfect all around optic for hunters who may take a variety of game with the same rifle and various loads. When coupled with the Nikon Spot On Technology, adjustments for changing loads can be quickly computed.
The quick adjust target turrets allow easy windage and elevation adjustments and a quick zero reset by simply pulling up on the turret and rotating, without engaging the subtensions.
Being a second-focal planescope, the BDC reticle easily allows elevation compensation for various ranges without adjusting the turrets. The side focus feature quickly allows you to compensate for parallax as well as estimate range, based upon when your target is in clear focus. Further focus adjustment can be made with the Fast Focus Eyepiece to compensate for diminished eyesight or glasses.
With 3.6- to 4-inches of eye relief, the nitrogen purged 30mm tube provides plenty of room for getting comfortable in a variety of shooting positions. The gold-colored reticle reflects a certain amount of light, creating color gradations on the reticle. This provides amazing contrast against targets of multiple colors, helping the reticle to easily stand out from the background clutter.
The multicoated lenses are resistant to dust, fog and weather and the entire scope is waterproof down to 1-meter for 10 minutes, so a sudden downpour won’t have you running to the truck with your rifle under your jacket. The coatings also provide crystal clear viewing, even in low light, to extend your legal and ethical shooting time as well as help you better identify a great trophy animal.
For the hunter on a budget who demands high performance and the ability to accomplish multiple tasks, the Nikon PROSTAFF 7 meets your requirements, including affordability.
