Nikon Expands Muzzleloader Line

Posted on 22 December 2009 by Tom Wiley

Nikon rocked the Muzzleloading world with the introduction of the original Omega Muzzleloading riflescope and the new Omega promises more of the same for 2009. Blackpowder hunters now have more options to find the scope that best suits their terrain and style of hunting

The New Omega 1.65-5×36 is a lower magnification, more compact version of its big brother the 3-9×40. Fully packed with features, including the Nikon BDC 250 Reticle calibrated for ballistic tipped sabot muzzleloader bullets, the new Omega is every bit as precise as the original.

“No matter what a hunter’s choice is for a firearm, Nikon has a scope built specifically for that application,” said Nikon Sport Optics General Manager Jon Allen. “From the SlugHunter line to the Omega line to the Encore line, Nikon has more pursuit specific tools than any other optics company.”

Five full inches of eye relief mean you can comfortably and safely mount this scope on even the hardest kicking muzzleloaders. With a super bright exit pupil of 7.2mm and Nikon’s fully multicoated lens you can hunt right up to the end of legal shooting time. The durable one-inch tube features hand turn 1/4 MOA adjustment and a 100-yard parallax setting. Multicoated lens provide 92% Light Transmission for excellent low light performance.

The new Omega is available in a matte finish with the BDC-250 or Nikoplex reticle or Realtree’s APG with BDC-250. The MSRP is $239.95 with the BDC Reticle, $299.95 with the Nikoplex reticle and $249.95 APG with BDC. The new Omega will be on dealer shelves in plenty of time for 2009 hunting seasons.
