    Nikon is Exiting the Rifle Scope Business

    https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/ni...9DbZXZdiSTxCsY

    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.

    Well, what will you need a spotting scope or rangefinder for if you don’t have a scoped rifle?
    The only reason to disarm a man is to force him to do something that you couldnít force him to do if he was armed.

    This is sad to hear. Nikon makes some good products for the money. They are much better than the lower end Vortex,Simmons,Tasco,and some others.
    I have two of there scopes including a FFP 4-18X40 which has been excellent.
    Sorry to see them go. --- SAWMAN
