Melville, NY-(Ammoland.com)- Nikon just made competition-grade FFP scopes accessible–to everyone. For 2018 Nikon expands its flagship BLACK tactical optics family with the introduction of the FX1000. Competition-ready straight from the box, the BLACK FX1000 combines match grade features such as a first focal plane optical system, high-speed turrets, integral zero stop and choice of glass-etched MOA or MRAD reticles. To summarize, the new BLACK FX1000 becomes the feature-packed optic long-range shooters have been waiting for–and one that changes the paradigm of how tactical optics are valued.

The BLACK FX1000 utilizes Nikon's proprietary optical glass and multicoating technology to provide exceedingly sharp resolution, and clear target images regardless of distance. The 50mm objective lens in each model not only gathers–but transmits–maximum brightness from first to last light.

Nikon's advanced FX-MOA and FX-MRAD reticles were designed specifically for the first focal plane optical system used in the BLACK FX1000 riflescope. Each reticle is designed to optimize the sight picture and provide the necessary tools for ranging, holdover and windage corrections whether shooting a match or punching paper.

The BLACK FX1000's high-speed turrets allow you to dial-in 25 MOA/10 MRAD of adjustment per revolution with crisp, clean, tactile clicks. These high-speed turrets allow most modern calibers to be dialed in excess of 1,000 yards with a single turn. Built for the constant dialing that comes with long-range precision, the elevation turret debuts Nikon's all-new integral zero stop that assures you don't lose your zero once set. BLACK FX1000 riflescopes each have a side focus parallax adjustment located on the left side of the turret block for parallax compensation from 50yds-∞. On illuminated reticle models, a 10-level rheostat control integrated into the knob features intermittent “off” settings between each brightness level.

The BLACK FX1000 is offered in 4-16×50 and 6-24×50 variants, with the choice of FX-MOA or FX-MRAD reticles. The 4-16×50 models provide 90 MOA/25 MRAD maximum internal adjustments and the 6-24×50 models provide 60 MOA/17 MRAD internal adjustments.

The BLACK FX1000 riflescopes are built on 30mm tubes from aircraft grade aluminum alloy with Type-III hard anodizing surface finish for maximum ruggedness and long-term durability. Waterproof, fogproof and shockproof, all BLACK FX1000 models are backed entirely with Nikon's lifetime repair/replacement NO FAULT POLICY.

I like Nikon optics quite a bit – I have used them on different rigs over the years. But I’d put the SIG Tango4 6-24x50mm, mil dot, illuminated, FFP scope (w/battery-saver technology) up against this Nikon scope any day. I only paid $750 for the Tango4 through Top Shelf Tactical. If you’re interested, ask for Brian. And no, (full disclosure) I have absolutely no FFF (financial, friend or family) affiliation with them whatsoever – none(.)
Happy shooting.

Looks like a nice scope. I have many years of experience of 1,000+ yard shooting. This scope just doesn’t have much internal adjustment. 60 mins. is not much. I would look for at least 80 mins.

If they’re made in Japan sounds like a good deal. If the Philppines or China, not so much.
