Nightforce Optics congratulates winners of inaugural Nightforce Precision Tactical 2 Rifle Match

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016


This past weekend concluded the 2016 Nightforce Precision Tactical 2 Rifle Match. The match was a success for unveiling and proofing a new match format, one where competitors fire both carbines and precision rifles on the same stages. This was a field match, held across the Coal Canyon area of the NRA Whittington Center. Targets and shooting positions were placed across the natural terrain instead of on a traditional square range.

Competitors fired over 200 rounds of carbine and up to 100 rounds of precision rifle across the 10 stages. Carbine targets ranged from as close as 3 yards to as far as 400 yards. Precision rifle targets ranged between 300 and 890 yards. At the start of each stage, all competitors had to carry their gear and configure their rifles and shooting positions on the clock.


Congratulations to the following shooters on their Top 5 finish:

Collin Fossen – 1st

Tyler Payne – 2nd

Brad Riley – 3rd

Reid Driscoll – 4th

Matt Sweeney – 5th

New Nightforce Competition SR Fixed 4.5 x 24 Ready for Service Rifle Competition

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

The popularity of Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) and NRA service rifle matches, combined with recent rule changes, have resulted in the new CompetitionTM SR Fixed 4.5 x 24 riflescope by Nightforce.


The CompetitionTM SR Fixed 4.5 x 24 is purpose-built to comply with 2016 rules that, for the first time, allow the use of riflescopes having a maximum magnification of 4.5x, objective lens diameter to 34mm, and combined weight of optic and service rifle to 11.5 pounds.


The new CompetitionTM SR Fixed 4.5 x 24 is built on a 30mm tube. It provides 100 MOA of both elevation and windage adjustment, in precise .25 MOA increments. The exposed adjustments feature large, easy-to-read engraving, and 20 MOA per revolution. Parallax is fixed at 200 yards, providing a parallax-free image for all service rifle and high power distances. The compact riflescope measures 9.9 inches in length and weighs just 15.4 ounces. It includes patented Nightforce ZeroStopTM technology that allows an instant, positive return to the shooter’s chosen zero setting, regardless of how many elevation adjustments have been made.


The SR-1 reticle was created specifically to maximize the new riflescope’s performance. This new, non-illuminated reticle has heavy posts at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions, and a 10 MOA center circle with 8 MOA crosshair which will appear visually familiar to iron sight shooters. It is standard in the CompetitionTM SR Fixed 4.5 x 24.


Nightforce has also introduced the new Unimount™ SR, a rugged, lightweight mounting solution designed specifically to complement the new riflescope and provide the preferred “nose to charging handle” positioning preferred by most service rifle shooters. The Unimount™ SR will fit any 30 mm riflescope, offering 20 MOA of taper while producing the performance of steel at half the weight.


The CompetitionTM SR Fixed 4.5 x 24 will retail at $1950 and the UnimountTM SR will retail at $260. Nightforce CompetitionTM riflescopes are engineered specifically to help shooters not just compete, but to win at any level.

Nightforce Optics Announces Precision Tactical 2 Rifle Match

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016


Nightforce Optics is excited to announce the inaugural Nightforce Precision Tactical 2 Rifle Match. This competition will be a blend of the rifle component of 3-Gun and target engagements known to competitors of the Precision Rifle Series (PRS). The match is to be held August 27-28, 2016 across the expansive natural terrain of the NRA Whittington Center in Raton, NM. Running the match are Denise and JJ Johnson, who have much experience from running the world famous Rocky Mountain 3 Gun match.

The match format will consist of 10 stages, with shooters running both a carbine and precision rifle on each stage. Close to 300 yard targets will be engaged with the carbine, while precision rifles will engage steel to 1000 yards. Estimated minimum round counts will be 200rds from the carbine and 100rds from the precision rifle.

“We are thrilled to partner with Denise and JJ for this event, as we feel this is a unique match concept that will appeal to shooters from both multigun and precision rifle,” says Sean Murphy, Marketing Project Manager and shooter for Nightforce Optics. “I think competitors will enjoy using their favorite carbine on targets from up close to 300 yards, and then transitioning to a precision rifle out to 1000 yards on every stage. The Whittington Center is a perfect choice for this event, with the unlimited potential for exciting stages shot across their corner of the Rocky Mountains.”

New First Focal Plane SHV 4-14 x 50 F1 from Nightforce

Wednesday, January 6th, 2016

Nightforce has announced their first SHV riflescope built with first focal plane reticle technology, the SHV 4-14 x 50 F1. This is the latest addition to the company’s popular SHV line, winner of two consecutive Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice awards.


The new riflescope features intelligent reticles with illumination that turns off between each of 11 brightness settings, allowing the user to pre-select an illumination level appropriate for lighting conditions, turn it off to preserve battery power, then restore it instantly with a one-click rotation of the dial. This prevents having to cycle through multiple brightness settings, which takes time and can affect the shooter’s night vision. The proprietary Nightforce MOAR and MIL-R reticles are offered.

The SHV 4-14 x 50 includes side parallax adjustment, and offers windage/elevation adjustments in .25 MOA or .1 Mil-Radian increments. It has an exposed elevation turret with Nightforce ZeroSet, which provides the user with a positive return to their zero point regardless of how many elevation adjustments have been made. The windage adjustment is capped for protection, but the cap can be removed and the windage adjustment used fully exposed. The SHV 4-14 x 50 allows 90 MOA of elevation adjustment and 70 MOA windage within its 30mm tube.

“Our SHV line has been extremely popular with shooters who demand affordable performance,” said Sean Murphy, marketing project manager, “and the new 4-14x F1 model continues to deliver. Fewer options and a simpler configuration allow us to offer SHV models at extremely competitive prices. We created the new 4-14 x 50 F1 to answer customer requests for SHV quality and affordability with the unique benefits of first focal plane reticle placement.”

The Nightforce SHV™ 4-14 x 50 F1 will retail for $1290 in the US market. For more information call 208.476.9814 or visit www.NightforceOptics.com.

Nightforce Optics Is Doing A Limited Availability Updated Re-Release Of The NXS 2.5-10 x 24 Scope

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015


October 2015/For immediate release

Nightforce NXS 2.5-10 x 24 limited release

The original member of the Nightforce NXS Compact riflescope family is making a limited debut for 2015.
In order to meet customer requests for the discontinued NXS 2.5-10 x 24 compact riflescope, Nightforce is manufacturing a limited run this fall. The NXS 2.5-10 x 24 is unique in that it has a straight body tube to the objective lens, which provides for a very compact package (9.9 inches in length).

For many years, the Nightforce NXS 2.5-10x family —proven in the hands of the U.S. military—has been renowned for performance far beyond its size. The NXS 2.5-10 x 24 was an original contract riflescope on the U.S. military Mark 12 5.56mm Special Purpose Rifle (SPR) program.


This limited run will see the NXS 2.5-10 x 24 receive modern enhancements over the original production models. Included will be an integrated Nightforce PTL (Power Throw Lever), allowing instant magnification changes even while wearing gloves. The elevation and windage adjustments are of the most current design, providing extremely positive click feel and easy to read numbers. Adjustment configurations are in .250 MOA (20 MOA per revolution) or .1 Mil-Radian (5 Mil-Radian per revolution) increments, with an exposed ZeroStop elevation and a capped windage adjustment as standard. Reticle choices include the MOAR and Mil-R.

As with all of the NXS 2.5-10x models, they prove that size is no substitute for quality, providing performance that exceeds most riflescopes of any size. In addition to being extremely popular on the various AR platforms, the low mounting profile, versatile magnification range and streamlined proportions also make it ideal for a mountain or safari rifle.

These limited run Nightforce NXS 2.5-10 x 24 models have an MSRP of $1,950. To acquire one of these limited availability riflescopes, please contact one of the four exclusive retailers below:
