NIGHT­FORCE OP­TICS

Gun World - - Gun World -

The reps from Night­force were on hand, and they did not dis­ap­point. They brought sev­eral mod­els—one of which is still a closely held se­cret at the time of this writ­ing.

The first scope to talk about is the ATACR 4-16x42. It is crys­tal clear, as you would ex­pect, with mul­ti­coated ED glass lenses. The easy-to-ad­just tur­rets have a low­pro­file ZeroHold fea­ture, avail­able in 0.1 MRAD (12 mils per revolution) or 0.25 MOA (30 MOA per revolution).

The capped windage ad­just­ment pre­vents ac­ci­den­tal ad­just­ment. The par­al­lax ad­just­ment is marked with ap­prox­i­mate num­bered dis­tances and is cou­pled with dig­i­tal ret­i­cle il­lu­mi­na­tion. The eye­piece fea­tures an in­te­grated Power Throw Lever (PTL) and an XtremeSpeed thread for mak­ing a fast diopter ad­just­ment. All these fea­tures are paired with an in­tel­li­gent Night­force F1 first fo­cal plane ret­i­cle that pro­vides fast hold-off ad­just­ments and pre­cise dis­tance cal­cu­la­tions.

In ad­di­tion, an­other of the demo ri­fles was fit­ted with an ATACR 7-35×56 F1 with the MOAR F1 ret­i­cle that has many of the same fea­tures as 4-16x42 plus 100 MOA of el­e­va­tion. The added mag­ni­fi­ca­tion is just what the doc­tor or­dered for reach­ing those long-range tar­gets.

No trip to the range is com­plete with­out a spot­ting scope. The TS-80 Hi-DEF 20-60x helped with fol­low­ing bul­let trace and made iden­ti­fy­ing target hits easy.

Night­force doesn’t make it easy to choose, but with so many dif­fer­ent ret­i­cle op­tions with each scope and a wide va­ri­ety of mag­ni­fi­ca­tion ranges, it makes one that will fit your needs.

Sev­eral Night­force op­tics were on hand, such as this ATACR 7-35×56 F1 with an MOAR F1 ret­i­cle.
