SHOT Show 2016 – Nightforce has presented 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 Nightforce company popular SHV optics line, winner of two consecutive Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice awards. Fewer options and a simpler configuration allow us to offer SHV models at extremely competitive prices. The new Nightforce SHV 4-14x50 F1 has been created to answer customer requests for SHV quality and affordability with the unique benefits of first focal plane reticle placement.
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 oneclick 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 4-14x50 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 4-14x50 allows 90 MOA of elevation adjustment and 70 MOA windage within its 30mm tube.
The Nightforce SHV 4-14x50 F1 will retail for $1290 in the US market.
