About the only complaint we hear about our riflescopes is that they aren’t cheap.
Nightforce riflescopes will never be “cheap.” The quality of materials, the precise tolerances, the skilled workmanship, and the need to withstand a lifetime of recoil make it physically impossible to build a world-class riflescope that is “cheap.”
But, we thought, perhaps we could make one a little more affordable.
One of the most difficult challenges we’ve ever faced was building a riflescope that is worthy of the Nightforce name in every regard—yet within the reach of a wider range of hunters and shooters who don’t need the “overbuilt” characteristics of our NXS™ series, most of which were originally created to withstand actual combat conditions.
It wasn’t easy. But we did it, by limiting some options, offering simpler controls, and using a less complex manufacturing process…not by reducing the quality of its components.
Welcome to the Nightforce SHV™ 4-14 x 56. We are confident it will outperform any riflescope in its price range. And frankly, many that cost much, much more.
All we cut were costs. Not corners.

Designed with customer feedback, the Forceplex reticle has bold lines to draw your eye to center, and remain visible to the last bit of legal lighting. The thin center cross hair allows for exact bullet placement. This simple design provides for a clean field of view to see as much as possible in the scope.
IHR stands for International Hunting Reticle, with good reason. It’s uncluttered and lightning fast, equally effective on dangerous game in tight quarters and at longer ranges on smaller targets. A floating illuminated center crosshair provides simple hold off capability. 3, 6 and 9 o’clock posts bring the eye quickly to your target.

With 1 MOA elevation and windage markings, .140 MOA lines, more accurate range finding and hold-offs are possible on smaller targets at longer ranges. Combined with a floating center crosshair, this makes for a reticle extremely fast and easy to use in the field. This reticle features center illumination only, and a 30 MOA scale below center.
