Nikon has recently announced its Pro Staff Rimfire II line-up of rifle scopes, designed to address the needs of the popular rimfire .22 long range calibre. The leading sports optics manufacturer has recognized the popularity of the rimfire calibers which are loved by hunters across the world for their intuitive usability and extreme accuracy, resulting in the new Prostaff Rimfire II, the ideal optic for long range huntung that combines Nikon’s Fully multi-coated optical system with the BDC 150 reticle that is specifically designed for rimfire rifles.
Nikon continues to release excellent rifle scopes in any price range and the Rimfire II is no exception. If you are looking for something on the higher end I suggest you take a look at some reviews online to find the best rifle scope in your price range.
One of the highlights of this rifle scope is the BDC 150 reticle that has been built specifically for use with rimfires. It allows the shooter to compensate for bullet drop at very long ranges. The unique see-through circles incorporated into this reticle lend the shooter a unique advantage for long range shots while also allowing a normal viewing experience for short range encounters where the crosshair itself becomes the aiming point. The Rimfire II scopes also feature Nikon’s signature fully multicoated optical system that packs several layers of anti-reflective compounds on each glass surface, yielding bright and vivid pictures along with excellent light transmission from dawn through dusk. Also present are spring loaded instant zero-reset turrets that make field adjustments a breeze. All the shooter needs to do is sight in the usual way, then lift the scope’s spring loaded adjustment knob, rotate it to their ‘zero’ and resume shooting. Thanks to this particular feature, the shooter can easily make adjustments in the field by simply dialing in their subsequent ranges.
Other notable features of this new rifle scope are consistent, generous eye relief that ensures the safety of your brow, even when you’re shooting with heavy cartridges, lightweight rifles or at severe shooting angles. The scope is also shockproof, fogproof and waterproof – it is Nitrogen purged and O-ring sealed to ensure that you can take it with you on the roughest of adventures.
What steals the show however, is the inclusion of Nikon’s patented Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. Just like all other riflescopes from the manufacturer, the Prostaff Rimfire II also utilizes this technology to enable the shooter to find out all of the precise aiming points on their scope’s reticle at different distances, in relation to their particular loading and ammunition. The Spot On program has its very own app available too – it works with both Android and iOS devices, and ensures that you’ve got the world’s best ballistic calculator at your fingertips. The Spot On Customer Turret program even allows you to order custom turrets for your riflescope according to your ammo, atmospheric conditions and other factors so you’ve got the ideal sight enhancement for your rifle.
The Prostaff Rimfire II is covered by Nikon’s standard No-Fault Repair/Replacement Policy for Binoculars, Riflescopes and Fieldscopes, which is a testament to their dedication for performance, quality and customer satisfaction. The scope is also covered by Nikon’s Limited Lifetime Warranty which means they’ll replace or repair your scope if any faults in workmanship or materials are discovered.
