    Default Nikon is Exiting the Rifle Scope Business

    Apparently.

    One of our intrepid readers whoís in the retail end of the gun business told us of notification he received from one of his distributors. They were letting him know that Nikon will be exiting the rifle scope business and that once current inventory is gone, itís gone.

    TTAG spoke to Nikonís advertising agency who confirmed the news. Weíre told that this is a business decision Nikon has made based on their position in the highly competitive optics market.
    Nikon isnít getting out of the outdoor optics business, though. The good news is they will continue to produce their excellent spotting scopes, rangefinders and binoculars.

    Pretty interesting my son bought a used rifle with a Nikon scope on it,he has been pretty happy with it.Only fault was the lens covers which have a tendency to keep slipping off,kinda shoddy for a higher end scope.This model was stamped Made in the Philippine,s. I am not to sure about scoping up any deals with the present existing inventory, I wonder if they will service the old one,s.

    Well,isn't that a swift kick in the arse?! I have a Nikon Pro Staff 4-12X40 BDC on my Ruger M77 SS .270Win that continues to amaze me with it's deadly accuracy. Business is business,I guess.
