Combining ultra-rugged construction and unparalleled brightness, the NIKON Encore EER 2.5-8x28 Rifle Scope, BDC Reticle, Silver (8482) is also the first handgun scope to integrate Nikon's patented BDC reticle.
Patented BDC reticle allows 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.
The Encore riflescope is designed to work with single shot handguns or revolvers equally well and excels on game or targets. Featuring ultra rugged and recoil proof construction, the Encore handles the hardest hitting handgun loads on the planet. Its water, fog and shockproof performance keeps hunters confident and in the field no matter what the conditions.
According to Larry Weishuhn, handgun hunting expert and professional wildlife biologist, "I've waited a long time for a scope like the new Encore. Putting Nikon's world class BDC Reticle in a handgun hunter's scope is a winning combination in the field or on the range".
Nikon's new Encore handgun scope features a 2.5-8 variable zoom one-inch tube combined with a bright, 28mm objective as well as hand-turn adjustments and positive clicks make for easy sighting-in.
The Encore EER 2.5-8x28 Riflescope is covered by Nikon's Lifetime Full Warranty.
