Nikon M-223 Scope: A Match Made in Heaven?

Nikon M-223 Scope Mount

Nikon M-223 Scope Mount

Nikon is jumping into the AR market with both feet. The new M-223 scope line offers classic Nikon quality, built into scopes (six models in all) specifically designed for the trajectory of the .223 Rem/5.56 NATO round with a 55-grain polymer-tipped bullet, the new BDC 600 reticle offers shooters unique open-circle aiming points and hash marks from 100 to 600 yards.

But the really cool thing is the matching scope mount. The M-223 mount is a lightweight, aluminum mount that clamps to a flattop receiver and is custom engineered to provide optimum height and eye relief for the Nikon M-223 series of scopes. Of course it can also be used with a variety of other optics with 1-inch O.D. tubes.

Nice features include a cantilever that extends 2 inches forward of the receiver to accommodate long eye relief scopes and three steel crossbolts on the full-length clamping bar to secure the mount to any MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny receiver rail. The mount also has built-in 20 MOA elevation to aid in accurate, long-range shooting past 600 yards without exceeding your scope’s elevation adjustment.

This looks like the perfect package for AR shooters who love to run scopes.
