The Rise of Technology in Rifle Scopes
Rifle scopes are engineered to precision so that they fulfill one purpose, which is to make the marksman’s target smaller. Humans have had 176 years to perfect the rifle scope and there has been incredible headway made. The recent rifle scope review of the Nikon ProStaff Rimfire 2 enlightens the audience to the marvel that is the rifle scope of the 21st century. Crystal is created specifically for optic use with multiple coats of aluminum or silver that are vaporized onto the prisms so as to make them not entirely reflective so that marksmen have a clearer view of their target. Scopes are “O” rings, which are sealed tubes filled with nitrogen to help prevent fogging and make them more water resistant for longer periods of time.
Rifle scopes are made to endure adventurous hunts and stay more accurate than ever before utilizing the best in telescopic technology from some of the most reputable companies today. Your heart rate can slow and you can release that breath you have been holding as you squeeze the trigger, knowing for certain your shot will hit its mark, due to the precision engraved in the engineering of your scope. Now, in the age of big data, Nikon has revolutionized an industry it was already standing strong in by putting more power in the consumer’s hands. Spot On, which is an application for your smartphone designed by Nikon, helps the consumer to compare ballistic analysis for their specific weapon to their scopes so that the aiming points of the reticle align exactly with the yardage they are shooting. This is the closest thing to having a spotter telling you how many “clicks up” you need to aim to hit your target with long range shots.

There are several uses for a fire arm and technology has to stand its ground against the elements. In those tough situations, it is paramount that Nikon do its job and uphold standards that keep their marksmen shooting straight. Rifle scopes have come a long way sense their beginnings and so has marksmanship. So whether you own a Nikon at the lowest range of cost or one at the highest, you will be pleased with your purchase.
