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

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.

    Looks like a great scope, but fixed parallax at 200 is not going to be parallax free across the course. Fixing parallax at 200 does not make the scope parallax free at 300 and 600 as well, it makes it parallax free at 200-that’s it.

      Then how can any scope company advertise their scope as parallax-free from “X” distance to infinity? It seems that this is what this scope does, starting at 200.

      I’ll agree that below 200, there will be parallax error.

      • Nightforce_TL says:

        This is very correct. In this specific design, it is very forgiving and when parallax is fixed at 200 yards on 4.5x with the 24mm objective it offers a very broad parallax free range with a clear image. However at targets less than 200 yards, the image may not be as crisp and will show some parallax error, but given the game it was developed for, error less than 200 was not a concern.
        If this were a higher magnification riflescope, parallax would be less forgiving.
