Product Description

Nikon ProStaff 4-12x40mm Riflescope, Matte w/ BDC Reticle 6729

Amazon.com

Boasting Nikon's fully multicoated optical system and a versatile 4 to 12x magnification range, the ProStaff 4-12x40 riflescope helps put virtually any shot in your comfort zone. The scope's optical system transmits up to 98 percent of available light, ensuring maximum brightness in low-light, low-contrast hunting situations. To simplify field adjustments, Nikon also integrated a zero-reset turret into the riflescope. Just sight in as usual, lift the spring-loaded adjustment knob, rotate to your "zero," and re-engage. Field adjustments are now as simple as dialing in your subsequent ranges. And hunters will love the patented BDC reticle, which allows them to hold "dead on" at ranges exceeding those previously thought possible. The BDC's unique see-through ballistic circles offer an incredible advantage for long-range shooting, yet allow a normal sight picture for shorter-range shots where the crosshair itself is the aiming point.

Nothing boosts a shooter's level of confidence better than generous, constant eye relief, which is why Nikon provided 3.7 inches of eye relief in the ProStaff. No more rough kickback from heavy recoiling cartridges, lightweight rifles, severe shooting angles, and just plain excitement. Other features include a nitrogen-filled, O-ring-sealed housing that's waterproof and fogproof; support for an optional sunshade accessory for bright, rainy, or dusty conditions; and a quick-focus eyepiece. The perfect riflescope for hunters who travel the country hunting game in diverse conditions, the ProStaff 4-12x40 riflescope carries a lifetime warranty.



The ProStaff riflescope includes a BDC reticle with see-through ballistic circles.

Really good scope very clear.
Cooper Lynn Wilson
This one is great, I put it on my .300 Win Mag Remington 700 and have hit 1 inch groups at 150 yards and 3 inch groups at 300 yards.
J. Bridges
I own several of these scopes and would recommend them over many of the higher priced brands out there.

I bought this scope a couple months ago for a new Remington 700 .223. I own several other brands of scopes in the same price range, including Simmons and Bushnell, mostly in a 3-9 model. With that said, this is by far my favorite scope.

I have not been impressed with the eye relief of the Simmons scopes or the clarity of the Bushnell scopes at longer ranges. This scope wins in every category, and finally I have a scope for less than $200 that I am completely satisfied with. I have also used friends' guns with higher end Leupold scopes, and while they are fantastic scopes, I wouldn't consider buying one after owning a ProStaff. I am currently selling off some of my old scopes and looking to replace them with ProStaffs as they go. If you are in the market and don't know whether or not to get the 3-9 or 4-12, I will tell you that for $30 it was well worth the upgrade, the image is very crisp at 12 magnification. When I bought my scope it was $197 with free Prime shipping, since then Amazon has removed the free shipping option, but I'm watching to see if they get it back before ordering.

Another reviewer received a defective scope, I wouldn't let this scare you away. Nikon is a reputable company and stands behind its products. I have had my scope in the rain a few times and it hasn't fogged or given me any reason to be concerned. I also recommend the Nikon 8053 Matte Sunshade for 40mm Scope, found here on Amazon, to compliment the scope.

** Update **
I bought 2 more of these scopes last week and have attached them to guns and sighted them in. Absolutely no issues, very happy with all 3 scopes. I did need to upgrade to better dovetail scope mounts for my guns, as this scope has more weight to it than my old 3x9 scopes and the mounts were sliding back on my rails.

I bought this scope at the end of the season last year shortly after purchasing a new 300 win mag. I sighted it in at 100 yards and then put it away for the winter. In preparation for hunting season this year, I headed out to the firing range. All I've previously owned is 3-9x40 (no bdc), so I was anxious to see what the bdc would/could do for me. I have to say, I am very impressed with this scope. It is very clear, easily adjustable, and the spot on calculator provided on the Nikon website is a neat deal as well. Last night after work, I went to the range and shot out to the predetermined yardages based on the spot on calculator - they were dead on and I shot targets out to 680 yards, hitting them every time. I love this scope and have recommended it to friends and coworkers. I only paid $189 at Scheels and I thought that was a damn good deal. I highly recommend the bdc and checking out the "spot on" application on the nikon website.

*Update*(Nov 2011) I shot my elk opening morning at 525 yards. I love this scope.

In my opinion Nikon is the hands down best bang for your buck going! In your hands, it feels like a tank....well built and ready for action! Full lifetime warranty, Nikon's Spoton Ballistic charts, and 98% light transmission make this a real no-brainer! I was in a local sporting goods shop not long ago, and held practically every scope in their inventory in the 3-9's to the 4-12's range. (I'm putting this on a Henry Golden Boy .17hmr, and didn't need anything larger)I asked the guy to just hand me scopes, and one by one, without looking at brand name or any other hype, I just looked through them. Sounds silly I know, but if you have no preconceived ideas about what you're looking through, then you can only judge on what you see and feel. After about 10 scopes, he placed one in my hands that when I looked trough it it was OBVIOUSLY brighter, clearer, and was crisp and sharp to the edges. I sat it aside as looked through another two or three, and was handed another SUPER bright, clear scope. I said out of all these, these two are the best by FAR. My choices were a Nikon 3-9x50, and a Nikon 4-12x40. I had looked through BSA, Centerpoint, Barska, Leupold, Bushnell, Tasco, and several others I don't remember, but the ONLY ones that stood out were Nikon. If you're already brainwashed into thinking that Leupold is the best of the best....I DARE you to check it out beside a Nikon with a similar reticle and power, in a blind (to the name brand) test, and tell me that a Leupold is worth $300+ more money for the same specs. Spend your money on other furniture and accessories for your weapon, ammunition, a hunting lease, or a new grill to cook all that deer on that you're about to slaughter. There is no way in this world you're going to be disappointed with this purchase!Read more ›

This is a great scope for the money. Once dialed in, I'm hitting metal targets at 600 yards with my .308 AR-10. I used the "AccuShot Premium 1-Inch Weaver Style See-Thru Medium Profile Rings" to mount it, and the "Butler Creek 19 Eyepiece Flip Open Scope Cover" and "Butler Creek 31 Objective Flip Open Scope Cover". Very happy, no regrets.

I bought this scope because I wanted a little more range than the 3x9 I had on my rifle. I already had a Nikon Omega on my muzzleloader, and I am sold on the BDC reticle, so it wasn't hard for me to decide which scope to look at for my rifle. These Prostaff Scopes are as clear as any optic I've looked through. Can't go wrong with in my opinion.
