                         NIKON PULLS OUT ALL THE STOPS

With 90 years of sport optics experience in its pocket, Nikon has engineered its new Monarch
flagship riflescope line to overcome many of the limiting factors common to many of today’s
riflescopes—and to challenge the limits of optical science, as well.

Nikon designed the Monarch around a new optical system created to give shooters increased
versatility and superlative performance with virtually any type of rifle, in any caliber and in any
imaginable hunting situation. While still maintaining the American-preferred one-inch diameter
main body tube, Nikon engineers developed the new Monarch series to not only provide the
shooter with a big, bright, sharp sight picture, but at the same time minimize the overall length
of the riflescope—and maximize the mount ring spacing capability. The resulting line of
riflescopes pushes the envelope of optical performance with Nikon’s lead-and-arsenic-free Eco
Glass lenses and trademark Ultra ClearCoat® anti-reflective multicoatings, is fast-handling,
pleasing to the eye and very importantly, allows for mounting on virtually any rifle—even
magnum-length actions.

In addition to the enhanced ring spacing, the new riflescope design includes the new Monarch
Eye Box design with its impressive 4-time zoom range and a very comfortable 4 inches of eye
relief that remains constant throughout the power range without sacrificing field of view. In
contrast, most competitive riflescopes supply less than 3-times magnification zoom capability
and eye relief that varies by as much as a full inch between high and low powers. The
Monarch’s massive ocular lens also delivers both a large high-resolution sight picture and the
maximum field of view corresponding to each power setting. As an additional convenience
feature, Nikon has placed rear-facing magnification indicators on the zoom control and included
a quick-focus eyepiece on the new Monarch Eye Box.

All new Monarch riflescope models utilize Nikon’s precise, repeatable, hand turn reticle
adjustments and feature the company’s new Interchangeable Turret Technology system, which
allows shooters to switch out turret knobs and caps for maximum convenience and versatility.
Monarch 2.5-10x42, 2.5-10x50, 3-12x42SF, and 4-16x42SF models offer 1/4-MOA adjustments
and can be customized with accessory target-style windage and elevation adjustment knobs and
caps. The 5-20x44SF and 6-24x50SF models offer 1/8-MOA adjustments and include low
profile adjustments with caps, target-style high profile knobs with caps, and tapered, easy grip
knobs. Models with magnifications exceeding 10-power also feature a locking side focus knob
on the left side of the adjustment turret. This ergonomically-positioned control allows for
precise parallax adjustment maintenance at virtually any range from 50 yards to infinity.

Nikon mates its patented BDC reticle to every new Monarch riflescope model to allow 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.
Nikon’s other reticle styles are also available in the new Monarch scopes, including Nikoplex,
Mildot, Fine Crosshair and Fine Crosshair with Dot.

Suggested retail pricing for the new Monarch riflescopes are (matte finish with BDC reticle):
2.5-10x42 $409.95, 2.5-10x50 $479.95, 3-12x42SF $429.95 , 4-16x42SF $449.95, 5-20x44SF
$529.95 and for the 6-24x50SF $649.95.
