Nikon introduced the Prostaff 5 rifle scopes six years ago. Now they’re updating the line, dropping the price slightly and renaming the family of eight optics with various magnification and reticle options PROSTAFF P5. Here’s their press release . . .
Nikon Introduces the PROSTAFF P5 Family of Riflescopes
Melville, NY (April 2019) – Nikon continues to raise the bar for riflescope performance as it surpasses the century-mark of optical innovation. The all-new PROSTAFF P5 is a continuation of that legacy wrapped up in a one-inch main body tube and a versatile 4x zoom ratio that offers a wide field of view and increased image detail throughout the magnification range.
Nikon’s legendary optical performance is maximized through its dedication to engineering optical systems specific to each and every riflescope it builds, and the PROSTAFF P5 is no exception. The optical system of the PROSTAFF P5 was created around Nikon’s renowned lead-and-arsenic-free glass that is fully multicoated with anti-reflective compounds, providing consistently bright images in all lighting conditions.
Durability is always a priority for Nikon and the PROSTAFF P5 will surely live up to this reputation. Engineered for minimum weight and maximum strength, the PROSTAFF P5 features an all-aluminum zoom ring, focusing eyepiece and turret caps with matched knurling for increased grip and visual appeal.
The PROSTAFF P5 is the first one-inch tube riflescope in Nikon’s hunting lineup to offer its new MK1-MOA long-range reticle. Together with precise, 1/4-MOA turrets, the MK1-MOA reticle provides precise visual reference points for ranging, holdovers and windage corrections. The renowned BDC reticle and Nikoplex reticles are also offered for those that either want a ballistic compensating reticle or a single aiming point respectively. All reticle options are supported by Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic App for quick referencing in any field situation.
Included in the PROSTAFF P5 lineup are long-range models that offer turret-mounted side focus parallax adjustment to enable finely tuned sight picture without the need to break cheek weld. The generous eye relief on all PROSTAFF P5 models allows quick target acquisition and helps keep brows safe––even during heavy recoil.
As with all Nikon riflescopes, the PROSTAFF P5 models are nitrogen purged and O-ring sealed for waterproof, fogproof and shockproof performance and are backed by Nikon’s NO FAULT Lifetime Repair/Replacement Policy.
