This Family Hunts Together
Tested and proven in the field by Nikon PROSTAFF members, the PROSTAFF line of riflescopes will help you stay on target in virtually any conditions. The entire PROSTAFF riflescope series integrates Nikon’s fully multicoated optical system, Spring-Loaded Instant Zero-Reset Turrets and Spot On optimized reticles. Whether you shoot with a rifle, shotgun or rimfire, you can rest easy knowing that Nikon will never cut corners on optics, ruggedness or precision.
PROSTAFF Riflescope Features
Patented BDC Reticle
The BDC reticle allows hunters 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.
Fully Multicoated Optical System
Fully Multicoated lenses boost light transmission for bright, high contrast views.
Precise Hand-turn 1/4-inch Click Adjustments
Positive-click reticle adjustments get you zeroed in quickerand maintain your setting even with heavy recoil.
Waterproof, Fogproof, Shockproof
Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed.
Spot On Ballistic Match Technology
The PROSTAFF, like all of Nikon’s riflescopes, is optimized for use with Nikon Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. Spot On allows you to discover all of the exact aiming points on your scope’s reticle at various yardages for your specific ammunition and load.

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.

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. Something to consider if you have a small scope currently attached or are buying new scope mounts. I've found you need to spend $20+ on a mount if you don't want a scope of this size to move on you, don't waste your time with cheap models.
