The latest addition to the Nightforce's popular SHV line of riflescopes is the 4-14x50 F1 model, built with first focal plane reticle and featuring intelligent reticles with illumination that turns off automatically between each of 11 brightness settings – allowing the user to pre-select an illumination level appropriate for lighting conditions, turn it off to preserve battery power, then restore it instantly with a one-click rotation of the dial.
This prevents having to cycle through multiple brightness settings, which takes time and can affect the shooter’s night vision. The proprietary Nightforce MOAR and MIL-R reticles are offered.
The SHV 4-14 x 50 includes side parallax adjustment, and offers windage/elevation adjustments in ¼ MOA or .1 Mil-Radian increments. It has an exposed elevation turret with Nightforce ZeroSet, which provides the user with a positive return to their zero point regardless of how many elevation adjustments have been made.
The windage adjustment is capped for protection, but the cap can be removed and the windage adjustment used fully exposed. The SHV 4-14 x 50 allows 90 MOA of elevation adjustment and 70 MOA windage within its 30mm tube.
