Nightforce SHV 4-14×56

This popular Nightforce riflescope brings a whole new level of accuracy to the masses. For many everyday shooters, the cost of owning an innovative Nightforce optic was just a dream. The cost involved in such technically advanced scopes often pushed them out of reach.

After much careful thinking and development, Nightforce launched the SHV 4–14×56. By simplifying the more overbuilt characteristics seen in the NXS range and removing the illuminated reticle, Nightforce was able to build a full-blown Nightforce scope that retails for less than £1,200.
