Nikon Shooting Competition Preview!

Jun 22, 2012 • News, Videos4 Comments

One of the cooler things about working here at GearExpert by OpticsPlanet is that we’re invited to exclusive events in the hunting and shooting industries.  Next week a couple lucky members of the GearExpert team, Kate and Trevor, get to partake in a Nikon Shooting Competition!

Trevor is one of the product specialists here at OpticsPlanet, and he’s super excited to get his hands on some of the great new gear from Nikon, and we saw Kate’s shooting prowess during her Hog hunt back in April.  As a fun twist, Kate and Trevor will be on different teams in the competition.  I can’t say how much trash-talking will take place, but win or lose they’ll both get to try out some of the best new Nikon Riflescopes!

We’re not 100% sure which scopes each will shoot with in the competition, but I’m betting Kate and Trevor will be lucky enough to take a few shots with models of the Nikon M-223, M-308P-223P-22 Rimfire, Monarch X, Monarch 4 and Monarch 5 Rifle Scopes.  These were all big hits at SHOT Show last January, and I know we’ve all been super excited about them since their debut.  In most shooting competitions I’d say the guy or girl using a Nikon Riflescope is going to win, but since everyone is going to be shooting with top notch glass I guess it’ll actually test their skills!

Check out the video above as Kate and Trevor tell you a bit more about the trip, and keep your eyes glued to GearExpert and the OpticsPlanet Facebook Wall next week as I’ll be posting exclusive photos and video from the Nikon Shooting Competition in Utah!!!

    Ok what is new Surefire has been making replacement forearms with lights for year for both Remington and Mossberg, problem is the cost low in being 300.00. You can get a replacement forearm with a rail and attach a 1 inch mount with a tac light a do the same thing. I set up 3 shotguns for what one would cost if I did a surefire replacement forearm.

    That’s a great idea, and one we hope SureFire looks into as well! I will say this particular light is so ergonomic that an additional rail might make it too bulky, but there does seem to be room on the end for a rail. Maybe next years model will have further customization options.

    This particular model and the intuitive and ergonomic design is what’s really new with the SureFire Mossberg Forend light. You certainly can buy a regular replacement forearm with a rail, but the great design on this light makes it much easier to turn on without changing your grip.
