Introducing the Nikon Aculon Rangefinder

Introducing the Nikon Aculon Rangefinder

Nikon rolled out a new ultra-compact rangefinder at 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, the Nikon Aculon rangefinder. The Aculon's multi-layer coatings reduce glare and ensure you get a more natural, clear view when ranging from 6 yards all the way out to 550 yards. Measurements can be taken quickly and easily with the single button operation of the Aculon, which automatically powers down after 8 seconds to conserve battery. Weighing less than 5 ounces (without batteries) the Aculon is made to carry conveniently anywhere. The Aculon has a suggested retail of $169 (black) or $189 (Realtree camo) and is available now.
