    The Nightforce™ 4A reticle adds a high degree of precision to a classic hunting design. Posts at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions bring the eye quickly to the target, but unlike many heavy, bulky plex-style reticles, the 4A provides an exceptionally clean, uncluttered field of view. This makes it ideal for running game, as well as on stationary targets, virtually anywhere in the world. (Not available in North America)
