Nightforce Optic’s new SHV riflescope is the least expansive scope in their line. It does not sacrifice performance.

When choosing a rifle scope you will soon find that Nightforce is swiftly becoming one of the most trusted names in riflescopes but one complaint often registered is that Nightforce optics are expensive, usually you won't find a rifle scope sale featuring this quality brand.

I’ve been using and testing two Nightforce SHV riflescopes for several months now and they’ve performed as impeccably as every other Nightforce scope I’ve tested. With a suggested price of $1,195 at the riflescope store for the illuminated version, and $995 for the non-illuminated version, this certainly isn't a cheap rifle scope though buying at this scope is a steal, which is exactly why I acquired one to use for accuracy testing the many rifles I have to evaluate. Now I know if I’m not shooting little groups its either the fault of the rifle, the ammo or me; never the rifle scopes and optics. Every gun writer should have reliable tools such as the Nightforce at their disposal.
