More and more we’ve been getting the question “Where can I find a good quality scope for my AR-15 without breaking the bank?”. That’s not always an easy answer but my first recommendation is always “Check out Nikon. They make great affordable glass!”. Well apparently Nikon wants to make sure that even more AR-15 owners can afford their awesome scopes and have come out with two new scopes designed with the .223/5.56 round in mind that will retail for less than $200. The P-223 3-9×40 is outfitted with their BCD 600 reticle while the P-223 3×32 is features their BDC Carbine Reticle. Both are also equipped with another nice upgrade over your conventional inexpensive scope which is the Tactical-style Zero Reset Turrets. The “BANG” for your buck on these are going to be tough to beat. Check out the pics and specs below!
The P-223 3-9×40 features the patented Nikon BDC 600 reticle and tactical-style turrets with Zero-Reset feature to simplify field adjustments.
