The 4-16x50SF is a dedicated precision riflescope that offers the precision, the features and the ruggedness serious shooters demand. For starters, it is built with an aircraft grade aluminum alloy 30mm main body tube. The illuminated X-MOA reticle delivers 90 total MOA internal adjustment travel. Its turrets have 1/4 MOA click graduations yielding 12 MOA per revolution. All of the 4-16x50SF models have the reticle placed in the riflescope’s second focal plane, so all holdover corrections, ranging and other measurements using the indicated reticle subtensions should be done at 18x magnification.
Nikon’s Illuminated X-MOA Reticles
The specialized reticle and adjustment system in this BLACK X1000 6-24x50SF is a glass-etched MOA tactical-style variant with illumination. Windage and elevation turret internal travel is enhanced for long-range dialing and crisp, click-stop movements operate with no backlash and are both precise and repeatable. The X-MOA reticle presents the shooter with clean and visually simple, yet highly functional and advanced tools for estimating range, maintaining holdovers or dialing elevation come ups and compensating for wind. An advantage of using this tactical-style reticle is that it can be applied to virtually any shooting application regardless of caliber or ballistic performance, and can be further optimized for specific shooting situations utilizing Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic Match Technology.
Full Multilayer Coatings On All Air-to-Glass Surfaces
With a very capable four-time zoom optical system built with Nikon’s renowned lead- and arsenic-free glass, BLACK X1000 lenses are fully multicoated with anti-reflective compounds for consistently bright, sharp, high contrast sighting at all magnifications.
Turret-mounted Side Focus Parallax Adjustment
Each of the riflescopes in this series features a turret-mounted side focus parallax adjustment to enable fine-tuning of the sight image without changing shooter’s position.
Generous, Consistent Eye Relief and Elevated Windage & Elevation Turrets
Consistent eye relief keeps your brow safe, while the exposed turrets are engraved for maximum readability while offering smooth, repeatable adjustments.
