Nikon was intending to send along one of their new BLACK scope mounts with the BLACK X1000 I did a review on this summer, but it never happened. Well, I had two of them mysteriously show up on my porch a while ago (long after the scopes were returned), so I figured I would post some pictures.

If I had to guess, I would say that Nikon is not making these. They look, feel, and act just like mounts from Warne. I’ve used Nikon’s M-series one-piece mounts in previous reviews, and wouldn’t really want them on my personal guns. The BLACK mounts are a different animal, much higher quality.

No, I don’t have any use with them on a gun. I’m pretty sure Nikon is going to want them back eventually, but I will do my best to get some time on them. But, it’s just a scope mount. A very nice scope mount.

Midway has some renderings of them, but there’s not a whole lot of information otherwise. Just wanted to say that the Nikon BLACK mounts really seem to be a quality product, and one I would use.
