NEW PRODUCT FROM NIGHTFORCE OPTICS FOR EXTREME LONG RANGE SHOOTERS

Orofino, ID, U.S. – (January 16, 2020) Today, Nightforce Optics released a new product, the Wedge Prism. This new product was created with extreme long range (ELR) shooters in mind. Many of these shooters find that riflescopes lack the necessary elevation travel. The Wedge Prism is a clip-on accessory that mounts to a forward or continuous MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail to increase the effective elevation travel. It optically shifts the incoming image to the riflescope by a precise elevation value, which directly adds to the available elevation travel within any riflescope.

“As shooters continue to push the boundaries of what is possible for target distances, riflescopes are limited in overall adjustment for providing accurate fire,” said Alan Stilwell, Commercial Sales Manager. “Our Wedge Prism works with any riflescope to provide additional aiming offset, allowing successful and repeatable target engagements beyond what a riflescope could do with internal adjustment alone.”

The Wedge Prism provides a repeatable offset of the optical image, yet minimizes the loss of image quality, resolution and clarity. Available as a 50 MOA/14.5 MRAD or 100 MOA/29.1 MRAD variant, the shooter can choose an individual unit or combine models to tailor the amount of additional offset needed to reach their target. The quick-detach lever allows for rapid and repeatable installation and removal in the field, and by attaching to a rail prevents additional stresses on the riflescope.

“With this simple tool, a shooter can easily do the math to configure their rifle to hit their target,” Stilwell added. “For example, if my .416 Barrett requires 124 MOA of drop at 3,000 yards, but my scope will only dial up 90 MOA from zero, adding a 50 MOA Wedge Prism offsets the required dialing and only needs to be dialed up 74 MOA to reach the target and use the center aiming point of the reticle. This same principle works for .22 LRs past 300 yards, subsonic .300 Blackouts at 400 yards or when pushing any other cartridge beyond their normal limits.”

The Wedge Prism is available at $990 USD MSRP, and includes a MOLLE padded carrying case, flip-up lens cap and lens cleaning cloth. The first units will be available in February 2020. For more information on Nightforce Optics and the Wedge Prism, please visit www.nightforceoptics.com.

NIGHTFORCE® OPTICS BEGINS FULL RATE PRODUCTION FOR US SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND

Orofino, ID, U.S. – (December 19, 2019) Late last year, the Nightforce Optics MIL-SPEC ATACR™ 1-8×24 F1 was chosen as the First Focal Plane selection for the Squad-Variable Power Scope component of the family of USSOCOM Miniature Aiming System-Day (MAS-D) Optics. The Squad Variable Power Scope is designed to be integrated into current and future anticipated weapons that the US Special Operations Command employ.

Part of a life cycle replacement program for the SOPMOD Block II optic, the Nightforce MIL-SPEC ATACR 1-8x brings a new capability to the warfighter; a constant variable power scope. Unlike previous systems that were 4x only – or, in later variants, selectable between 1x and 4x – the MIL-SPEC ATACR 1-8x provides constant variable power selection between 1x and 8x. 

“The Nightforce MIL-SPEC ATACR 1-8×24 F1 is an over-engineered, military-grade scope built with the military’s extreme endurance in mind,” said Nightforce’s MIL-GOV-LE Business Development Manager, Tod Litt. “It offers numerous mission-critical features including a large eyebox for rapid engagement, a Power Throw Lever for rapid magnification adjustments and the shortest length in their class to maximize rail space. The fully, multi-coated ED glass in the ATACR results in superb light transmission, brilliant image rendering and exceptional color contrast for accuracy in virtually any condition the Warfighter may find themselves in.” 

Full Rate Production of the new optic has commenced at the Nightforce factory and will continue over the next few years. After the order is fulfilled, the optic is to augment the venerable M4A1 and similar small arms systems throughout USSOCOM. The integration of a 1-8x optic truly capitalizes on the necessities for today’s dynamic battlespace that can find the operator engaging at longer distances or clearing a building, oftentimes during the same mission. 

“It’s very humbling and prideful to all of us here at Nightforce Optics to know that we are providing product that see’s front-line action in defense of life, limb and freedom for all Americans,” said Litt. “Every member of the Nightforce Optics’ team is emotionally vested to ensure we make a product that will perform at its best when the conditions of war are at their worst. We consider the cost of failure in everything we do.”

While this specific optic is produced exclusively for the USSOCOM, the Nightforce Optics ATACR 1-8x24mm F1 (C597) is its commercially available version, allowing the use of the same unsurpassed optical quality and advanced daylight illumination technology that was selected for service.

NIGHTFORCE® OPTICS AWARDED USSOCOM P-VPS CONTRACT

Orofino, ID—(December 16, 2019) Two variants of the Nightforce Optics ATACR product line have been selected by United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to fill the Precision – Variable Power Scope component of the Miniature Aiming Systems – Day Optic (MAS-D) Program. The MIL-SPEC ATACR™ 5-25×56 F1 and the MIL-SPEC ATACR™ 7-35×56 F1 will be integrated as the Standard and the Long Range solutions for US Special Operations Command’s current and future anticipated Sniper Weapon Systems.

As part of a life cycle replacement program and capabilities enhancement, the Nightforce MIL-SPEC ATACR 5-25 and 7-35 are designed to provide improved target detection and acquisition, as well as hit probability, for engagements out to 1500m and beyond.

“The selection of both ATACR models brings continuity to a community that, until recently, have been using a variety of aging systems, all with slightly varying controls and reticle designs”, said Nightforce’s MIL-GOV-LE Business Development Manager, Tod Litt.

The Nightforce MIL-SPEC ATACR 5-25 and 7-35 offer unparalleled performance in extended range target detection and reliable mechanical adjustment. Both optics feature Nightforce’s exceptional ED glass, 0.1 Mil-Radian adjustment value for both windage and elevation, the Horus Vision TREMOR3 reticle, and a tan, hardcoat anodized finish. Provided as a system for the program, the selected optics also utilize a purpose-built Nightforce scope mount and laser range finder integration platform. When employed as a complete solution, the SOF Snipers ability to detect, range, and receive a firing solution is greatly accelerated.

The new optics are to augment multiple systems in the SOCOM inventory and will coincide with the release and fielding of the Mk22 Sniper System, based on the proven Barrett MRAD platform.

Nightforce Optics a Sponsor of U.S. Rifle Team

“After twelve years of sponsoring the U.S. Rifle Team, Nightforce is proud to continue backing F-Class competitive shooting and the U.S. Rifle Team in their endeavor to bring home the gold again at the 2021 World Championships,” said Nightforce Optics Director of Sales and Marketing, Gordon Myers. “As Gold Medal partners, we’re more dedicated than ever to see the team achieve their goals and triumph in South Africa in 2021.”

“Ever since U.S. Rifle Team members collaborated with Nightforce design engineers to create the Competition™ 15-55×52 riflescope, that particular Nightforce optic has reigned as the dominant scope in worldwide F-Class competitions,” said Myers. “We’ve enjoyed a dynamic and constructive relationship with the Team for more than a decade, and look forward to supporting them in their next World Championships bid and beyond.”

“As a fantastic long-term partner, Nightforce continues to give back to the F-Class shooting community through their unprecedented support of our Team,” commented U.S. Rifle Team Captain, Phil Kelley. “Now in our fourth straight F-T/R World Championship cycle, we couldn’t be more appreciative of the past, present, and future support we enjoy from the folks at Nightforce. As competitors, we insist on the absolute best tools for our sport, and we’re delighted to voice that the world-class team, strong brand reputation, and stellar products developed by Nightforce are unsurpassed in every way.”

The U.S. Rifle Team fields three squads consisting of F-T/R, F-Open, and Under 25 shooters. The complete team is comprised of 60 members including competitors, coaches, and support staff for the three individual squads. “Every four years, the Team re-sets, much like with Olympic teams,” said Kelley. “We’ve been winning international competitions with Nightforce atop our rifles since 2009, and as we prepare for the next World Championship run in South Africa in 2021, Nightforce will be at the firing line with us again. The cost of success is significant to each shooter on the team, and it’s only through the support of loyal sponsors like Nightforce that we’ll continue as the best F-Class shooting team in the world,” added Kelley.

“From all of us at Nightforce, it’s an honor to assist America’s elite shooters on the U.S. Rifle Team,” said Myers. “By sponsoring the Team plus many other F-Class matches all over the world, we’re committed to enriching long-range, competitive shooting as a whole.”

About the U.S. Rifle Team

The three-time, World Champion U.S. Rifle Team is proud to represent the United States and our F-Class competitive shooting. Representing all walks of life, team members are spread across the country. We compete regularly against teams from other nations, and at the 2017 World Championships in Ottawa Canada, close to twenty countries were represented.  

Most team competitions are fired at targets 1,000 yards away with the inner-most scoring ring at five inches in diameter, and the next ring at ten inches. Rifles are custom-made and designed specifically for the sport. All rifles used in the F-T/R Class are chambered in either .308 Winchester or .223 Remington calibers. The rifles must weigh less than 8.25 kilograms and must use either a bipod or a sling as the front support. Competitors generally use handloaded ammunition. Anyone with a .308 or .223 rifle and a bipod can compete and have fun in this sport, and with local matches all over the U.S., anyone interested need only look for an NRA High-Power event, and register as an “F-T/R” competitor.  
 

In the 1990s, a long-time target rifle competitor from Canada named George Farquharson lobbied the Dominion of Canada Rifle Association to allow competitors to use a bipod and a scope in addition to slings and iron sights for competition. The sport took off in the early 2000s and is now divided into two classes including F-T/R, and F-Open. F-Open allows for many different calibers, heavier rifles, and the use of machine-type bench rests to guide the rifle. Both competition classes shoot only from the prone position.

Nightforce Optics Welcomes Kristy Titus as Brand Ambassador

“Regarded as a leader in shooting sports education, Kristy Titus is outspoken in her stewardship of wildlife and habitat conservation,” said Nightforce Optics Director of Sales and Marketing, Gordon Myers. “Combine that inner drive of hers with her rising status as a competitive shooter, her vigorous support of the Second Amendment, including her notable election to the National Rifle Association Board of Directors, and she’s the perfect choice to represent Nightforce to our diverse audience of shooting enthusiasts. It’s not every day the chance to partner with someone of Kristy’s talent comes along,” he said, “so when it does, you jump. We’re extremely proud to welcome her to the Nightforce family and are excited to support Kristy in her efforts to educate people, affirm her passion for big-game fair chase hunting, and compete in precision rifle matches with our brand.”

Titus brings skills and product insight to Nightforce through her unique upbringing.

Her commitment to elevating her standings in precision rifle shooting is particularly exciting, so keep an eye on her ranking,” he said.

Nightforce recognizes that since women represent the largest growth segment in our industry, Titus’ influence is important. “Because of her approachable style and expert instruction, she easily relates to both men and women,” Myers said. Many people in the shooting sports community already know her through partnerships with Shoot Like a Girl, “NRA’s Women Tips & Tactics” on NRA TV, and even as the long-range precision marksmanship instructor at the Well-Armed Woman National Leadership Conference.

Other conservation organizations that enjoy Titus’ dedication include the Safari Club International (SCI), where she served as a President of the High Desert Chapter and went on to lobby members of Congress for legislation and policies to improve hunting and conservation efforts. Titus is also an ambassador for the National Wild Turkey Federation, a life member of the Wild Sheep Foundation, and member of the Mule Deer Foundation.
