Nikon Monarch 3 3-12x42 Side Focus Rifle Scope w/ BDC Reticle: Built For The Serious Shooter
A full 33% more magnification at the high end than a 3-9x40! A huge ocular, generous field of view and maximum light transmission for dawn to dusk brightness and resolution make this scope the “must have” for serious shooting. Scope includes an easy-to-reach side focus parallax adjustment for an unmatched sight picture from any shooting position.
Patented BDC Reticle
The various aiming points built into the BDC reticle can be utilized with Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Match Technology to give you exact aiming points at various yardages. Take the guesswork out of figuring elevation and bullet drop compensation.
Spring Loaded Instant Zero-Reset Turrets
To simplify field adjustments, Nikon has integrated this feature into all MONARCH 3 Riflescopes. Just sight in at 100 yards as usual, then lift the adjustment knob, rotate to your “zero”, and reengage.
The Difference Is Clear To See
Nikon has engineered the entire optical system to provide the shooter with a bright, sharp and incredibly flat sight picture and light transmission up to its theoretical maximum- 95% for clear sight picture form dawn to dusk.
Spot-On Ballistic Match Technology
The MONARCH 3 line is optimized for use with Nikon Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. Spot On allows you to discover all of the exact aiming points on the BDC reticle for your exact ammunition and load.
Hand-Turn 1/4 MOA Windage & Elevation Adjustments
Reticle adjustments are made in 1/4 MOA click-stop moves you can both feel and hear, and with no backlash to make your shot creep off target. Positive click reticle adjustments get you zeroed in quicker and maintain your setting-even with repeated recoil and under rugged conditions.
Rugged, One-Piece Body Tubes
Engineered for minimum weight and maximum strength and durability, Nikon builds these scopes from aircraft grade aluminum alloy and utilizes larger internal lenses for maximum resoloution. Larger tubes allow for the best resolution, wider windage and elevation travel, and superior low-light performance.
MONARCH 3 Eyebox Technology
Keeps your brow safe-even with the heaviest recoiling cartridges, lightweight rifles, and severe shooting angles. Every model features an impressive 4-time zoom range and up to four inches of non-critical eye relief. A massive ocular lens delivers a huge, exceptionally bright, high-resolution sight picture.
Enhanced Mount Ring Spacing
Provides greater mounting versatility. Most MONARCH 3 models can be mounted to virtually any rifle action regardless of caliber- even magnum-length actions.
Smooth Zoom Control
Magnification reference numbers are viewable from the shooter's position, making adjustments in the field quick and precise.
