Nikon has recently been pushing into the sporting and tactical market, leveraging their excellent optics design and engineering talent (as evidenced by their history of cameras, binos, and hunting scopes). I recently ran their BLACK X1000 during a precision rifle class and was duly impressed with the clarity and performance of the optics and am so far impressed with their direction. The newest offering is the “Nikon P-TACTICAL SUPERDOT”.
At SHOT 2018, I had the opportunity to play with a prototype of the SUPERDOT, but was forbidden from outing it… 🙂 Below find their press release with more details.
Melville NY (June 19, 2018) – Nikon announces that its new red dot sight previewed during SHOT Show 2018 is now a reality and headed for dealer shelves. The new P-TACTICAL SUPERDOT joins Nikon’s growing family of optical sights for a variety of shooting platforms and applications.The P-TACTICAL SUPERDOT is engineered with fully multicoated lenses and Nikon’s proprietary “TRUCOLOR” coating, which virtually eliminates the bluish tint associated with red dot sights. The sight’s 2 MOA dot is adjustable with 10 levels of brightness—the first two settings being night vision compatible—and is centered within the field of the 22mm sighting window for a wide field of view with unlimited-and-non-critical eye relief.Windage and elevation adjustments on the P-TACTICAL SUPERDOT are in 1-MOA increments and are made using the integral tool on the top of each cap. The internal adjustment range for both elevation and windage is 100 MOA.Nikon builds the P-TACTICAL SUPERDOT on a compact (2.8″ x 1.7″ x 1.7″), lightweight (4.2 ounce) aluminum alloy chassis that is shockproof, waterproof (IPX7) and extremely durable. The sight includes a removable rail mount with height spacer for fast, easy mounting to MSRs or any firearm with Picatinny railor base.
