The new P-223 series of riflescopes broadens Nikon’s line of precision optics for AR rifles.
Designed with sighting speed and long-range accuracy in mind for both AR platform rifles and .223 cartridges, the P-223 is offered in 3-9×40 long range and 3×32 Carbine models. The P-223’s entire optical system is fully multicoated for extreme brightness and light transmission.

The 3-9×40 features the patented Nikon BDC 600 reticle and tactical-style turrets with Zero-Reset feature to simplify field adjustments. Developed specifically for the trajectory of the .223 Rem /5.56 NATO round with 55-grain polymer tip bullet, at 3240 FPS the BDC 600 reticle offers shooters unique open circle aiming points and hash marks from 100 to 600 yards. MSRP for the P-223 3-9×40 is $199.95.

The P-223 3×32 Carbine is an incredibly compact optic designed specifically for fast-handling, shorter barrel ARs. The all-new, fast-sighting BDC Carbine reticle was developed specifically for the 3×32 and .223 Remington cartridge to make engaging targets out to 600 yards a snap. MSRP for the P-223 3×32 Carbine is $149.95.

The P-223 is optimized for use with Nikon Spot OnTM Ballistic Match Technology. The Spot On program provides users with exact aiming points on the BDC reticle for any load or ammunition at a specified range. Spot On can be purchased for iPhone and Android or tried out for free at nikonhunting.com/spoton.

Also available is an all-new P-Series Mount. Developed to fit Picatinny rails found on most flattop AR rifles, this two-piece design allows proper height and positioning of either P-223 scope. The lightweight-but-strong alloy construction will hold up under the most brutal conditions.

The Nikon P-223 riflescopes include the following features:

Fully Multicoated Optical System
Provides up to 98% light transmission and maximum brightness from dawn to dusk.

100-yard Parallax Setting
Eliminates parallax for precise shooting.

Generous, Consistent Eye Relief
Keeps your brow safe-even with the heaviest recoiling cartridges, lightweight rifles, and severe shooting angles.

Precise, 1/4-MOA Hand-turn Tactical-Style Turrets
Positive click reticle adjustments get you zeroed in quicker and maintain your setting.
