Nikon Introduces the Buckmasters II 3-9×50

This introduction fills a gap that didn’t exist in the original Buckmasters lineup. A scope that’s specifically designed for low-light conditions in the most common magnification range.


Shots in low light conditions are some of the most common and as such this scope is a great choice for any hunter. It comes with Nikon’s famous top-notch lenses and coatings.

This specific scope offers a BDC reticle that offers simplicity when aiming over long distances. The multicoated lenses offer maximum brightness and clarity.

Nikon offers the Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. It is available as a free app or online and allows you to optimize the BDC reticle to your cartridge. This provides the best aiming experience for a hunter.

The ¼ inch@100 yards adjustments on the reticle make it easy to sight-in and zero the scope. The spring-loaded instant zero-reset turrets let the shooter return to the zero-mark after the scope is sighted-in.

Nikon added a fixed 100-yard parallax setting to the Buckmasters II 3-9×50 mm. The hunter will also find a generous 3.6” eye relief preventing scope bite and improving shooting accuracy. As one would expect, the optic is also waterproof, fog-proof, and shockproof. The tube matches the other Buckmasters II scopes in the series with a diameter of 1 inch.


The detailed technical specifications of this scope are:

  • 3-9x Magnification
  • 50 mm Objective Lens Diameter
  • BDC Reticle
  • 3.6″ Eye Relief
  • FOV @100 yards: 33.8′ at 3x down to 11.3′ at 9x

  • 100 yards Parallax

  • 12.4″ length
  • 13.1 oz. weight


Nikon’s suggested retail price for the scope is $179.95. It is backed by their limited lifetime warranty as well as their No-Fault Repair/Replacement Policy.

This is an overall great scope for any hunter and shooter. It offers superb low-light capabilities specifically at this low price point. Overall a scope that will become a favorite for a lot of folks.
