Main new from NightForce in 2014 — available to a wider range of buyers sights SniperHunterVarminter (for sniping, hunting and varmint), or just multiplicity SHV 5-20х56. Since the main “drawback” of buyers usually NightForce optics was price, the company made the decision to create a more “budget” model. Riflescopes NightForce has never been and will not be “cheap”.
Quality materials, accurate calculations and the minimum acceptable error, and a highly skilled work on the production run, which should withstand a lifetime warranty — do physically and practically impossible to create a “cheap” sight of the world level.
But a more affordable NightForce riflescope to do everything well managed and in January 2014 at the Shot Show was presented SHV 5-20×56. The most difficult challenge for the developers was the creation of the sight, worthy to bear the logo and name of the NightForce on all criteria, but at the same time be more accessible for those who don’t need “bells and whistles” scopes NXS series , which was originally inherent in them for use in actual combat.
Engineers have coped with this challenge by limiting the options of the new SHV riflescope — more straightforward arrangements, less time-consuming production process, but in any case it did not affect the materials used!

The focus sight has a “European” location in the eyepiece.
