While Nikon has long been a respected maker of rifle and other long-gun optics, it hasn’t ventured into the reflex sight market, until now.

The optics company recently released its first ever reflex sight, the P-Tactical Spur.

It features an extended batter life, a host of modern features, and a 3 MOA red dot.

According to a press release, the Spur has a fully multicoated lens along with Nikon’s proprietary “TruColor” coating, which eliminated the bluish tint you see on a lot of reflex sights on the market. This may sound trivial, but the absence of that blue tint can be useful for getting a more natural both-eyes-open view when shooting.

The sight window is also 27mm x 16mm, making for an extra wide field of view.

That previously mentioned 3 MOA dot is fully adjustable, with 10 different brightness levels. The first two settings are night-vision compatible, making this a good option for hog and predator hunters.

The Spur also boasts a battery life of 15,000 hours of continuous use.

Since the Spur is small enough to be mounted on a handgun, it has to not only hold up to the recoil it will experience mounted on a rail, but on a moving slide as well. It’s housed in a compact 1.8” x 1.1” x 1” aluminum alloy chassis that is shockproof and IPX7 waterproof.

Nikon also includes a removable Picatinny rail mount, so you don’t have to buy an extra piece to put it on a long gun.

The P-Tactical Spur reflex sight is shipping with an MSRP of $219.95.
