NightForce Hunting Scopes

NightForce Scopes Logo

The company was founded in 1992 and since then every NightForce scope is thoroughly tested and inspected at their headquarters in Orofino, Idaho. The NightForce scopes were designed for both amateur and experienced shooters and can cover a wide array of applications, making them very versatile products that can compete with the most important optics manufacturers in the world.

NightForce Scopes For Rifles
The variation of the NightForce rifle scopes is very large and regardless of the hunting or shooting application, the company is able to offer some of the most competitive products on the market. For example, the NXS 3.5-15 x 50 F1 features the NightForce proprietary ZeroStop technology. The reticle of this unit is located in the first local plane which means that the size remains in the same ratio to the target across the entire magnification range. The model is shipped with a set of NightForce UltraLight titanium rings. Another interesting model from their lineup is the 12-42 x 56 Precision Benchrest that comes with 56mm multi-coated lenses and target turrets that are calibrated in true .125 MOA (1/8 click) value and can be re-indexed to zero after sighting in. The eyepiece of the model permits fast reticle focusing and the glass-etched illuminated reticle ensures optimum image/reticle contrast under virtually any lightning conditions.

Except rifle scopes, the company is offering various parts and accessories like the NightForce scope mounts. The Direct Mount system combines a high quality CNC machined 7075-T6 hard anodized aluminum base with an integrated ring design.

NightForce Compact
NightForce Compact Scope Review The NightForce NXS 2.5-10x32 Compact follows the footsteps of the smaller 24mm objective lenses from previous models and upgrades it to 32mm.
