Now Available: Nikon P-TACTICAL SUPERDOT

    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 rail
    or base.

    Suggested retail price for the new Nikon P-TACTICAL SUPERDOT sight is $199.95 and the P-TACTICAL SUPERDOT and all of its components are covered by Nikon’s 5-Year Warranty.
