The most powerful of the Nightforce SHV 5-20×56 series performs beautifully at both close and extended ranges on varmints, big game, and for making tight groups on paper.

You get outstanding clarity, crispness and colour contrast at every magnification setting. It features a full 80 MOA of elevation adjustment, side parallax adjustment and ZeroSet™ technology which allows a quick return to your initial zero setting, regardless of how many elevation adjustments you’ve made.

It’s tough, reliable and big calibers won’t bother it. The SHV™ 5-20×56 won’t bother your finances too much, either.

4A (Europe Only)

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)

It provides fast target acquisition at closer distances, while fine center crosshairs allow precise shot placement on the smallest targets at extended ranges.

The Nightforce™ 4A is available in illuminated and non-illuminated versions, depending upon which SHV™ riflescope you choose. It will serve you well wherever your hunting travels take you.


MOAR™ – 20 MOA – Center Illumination

With 1 MOA elevation and windage markings, .125 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 20 MOA scale below center.
