Nikon continues to raise the bar for riflescope performance as it surpasses the century-mark of optical innovation. The all-new PROSTAFF P5 is a continuation of that legacy wrapped up in a one-inch main body tube and a versatile 4x zoom ratio that offers a wide field of view and increased image detail throughout the magnification range.
Nikon’s legendary optical performance is maximized through its dedication to engineering optical systems specific to each and every riflescope it builds, and the PROSTAFF P5 is no exception. The optical system of the PROSTAFF P5 was created around Nikon’s renowned lead-and-arsenic-free glass that is fully multicoated with anti-reflective compounds, providing hunters and shooters consistently bright images in all lighting conditions.
Durability is a priority for hunters and shooters alike, and the PROSTAFF P5 will surely continue the Nikon reputation to excel in this category. Engineered for minimum weight and maximum strength, the PROSTAFF P5 features an enhanced zoom ring, focusing eyepiece and turret caps all made from aircraft-grade aluminum. Matched knurling on all controls also received an upgrade providing increased grip and visual appeal.
Included in the PROSTAFF P5 lineup are long-range models that offer turret-mounted side focus parallax adjustment to enable finely tuned sight picture without the need for the shooter to change position. Matched with a generous eye relief on all models in the PROSTAFF P5 family, shooters and hunters will benefit from the ability to acquire a target quickly, maintain stock/cheek weld during magnification changes, all while keeping their brow safe from the dreaded “scope kiss” – even with the heaviest recoiling cartridges, lightweight rifles and severe shooting angles.
One might ask how Nikon could possibly round out the PROSTAFF P5 to enter the market with a bang, but in pure Nikon fashion they continue to surpass expectations. The PROSTAFF P5 is the first one-inch riflescope in Nikon’s hunting lineup to offer the new MK1-MOA long-range reticle with matching MOA turrets. The MK1-MOA reticle provides precise visual reference points for ranging, shot holdover as well as windage corrections.
The renowned BDC reticle and Nikoplex reticles are also offered for those that either want a ballistic compensating reticle or a single aiming point respectively. All reticle options are supported by Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic App for quick referencing in any hunting/shooting situation.
As with all Nikon riflescopes, the PROSTAFF P5 models are nitrogen purged and O-ring sealed for waterproof, fogproof and shockproof performance and are backed by Nikon’s NO FAULT Lifetime Repair/Replacement Policy.
There are currently eight PROSTAFF P5 models ranging from $229.95 to $449.95 MSRP.
