There are numerous pieces on a Nightforce rifle that can be personalised, and many shooters switch out parts left and right to create a gun that is as one-of-a-kind as they are. Nightforce scopes exist in a variety of sizes and magnification levels ranging from 0 to 40X and higher, and few rifle improvements will have as dramatic an impact on your shooting as a scope. However, if you aren’t using a scope on your rifle right now, you’re not shooting to your full potential. Here are some of the best five options you can choose from.
Nightforce ATACR 4-16×50 F1: Best Hunting Scope
These scopes are less complicated than any other type. They’re built to be tough and weather-resistant because they’ll be spending most of their lives outside. Since hunting is rarely done at great distances, hunting rifle scopes are normally 20x magnification or less.
They’re also not always particularly adaptable. A hunting scope generally focuses on creating a bright and clear image in any weather with any other features or functions taking a back seat. So, if you want something simple and easy to use without minimal distractions at the moment, The ATACR 4-16×50 F1 hunting scopes are your safest bet!
It’s an extremely capable mid-power optic that would be ideal for a precise bolt gun, premium hunting rifle, or tack-driver gas gun. The ATACR is regarded as the ideal precision instrument for long-range shooting by the military, tactical specialists and civilian shooters alike thanks to its ED glass and virtually durable construction.
The ATACR 4-16 x 50 F1 is the type of hunting scopes that features the same multi-coated ED glass that was utilised in the original Nightforce ATACR 5-25 x 56, resulting in bright pictures, exceptional colour contrast, and outstanding low-light performance. These hunting scopes are only 13.1 inches long and weigh 33 ounces, which makes them an amazingly great decision if you consider shooting to be the perfect marriage of art and science.
Nightforce ATACR 1-8×24: Best Fixed Scope
A fixed scope has a fixed magnification level, although many scopes feature adjustable magnification that allows you to increase your target inside the scope. What you see is exactly what you get, you can’t zoom in or out to gain a better view of your target with a fixed scope. As a result, they’re the least expensive scope option you can find!
However, the ATACR 1-8×24 is intended to be the ideal variable-power low-power riflescope. It has flawless ED glass, bright daylight lighting, a clever reticle, incredibly low-profile adjustments, and bomb-proof dependability, with a field of view at 1x that is comparable to open sights, but far more precise. It has a sleek appearance and measures a little over 10 inches long and weighs 21 ounces. The daylight visible, central red dot enables rapid engagements, similar to a red-dot sight.
Unlike a red-dot, the 1-8x delivers up to 8x zoom to aid in locating, identifying, and engaging targets at most rifles’ maximum effective range. The accurate hold and hold-off positions are provided by the clever FC-DM first focal plane reticle. The turrets are capped to prevent inadvertent adjustment. Moreover, an inbuilt Power Throw Lever-PTL is featured to aid in quick magnification adjustments.
Nightforce ATACR 4-16×50 F2: Best Tactical Scope
Though practically any piece of gear these days can be called “tactical,” that’s not the case with Nightforce ATACR 4-16×50 F2 scope. It’s regarded as the ideal precision instrument for long-range shooting by the military, tactical specialists, and civilian shooters alike because of its ED glass and virtually durable construction.
Now, you can get the same kind of high performance from this must-have hunting gear.
In a second focal plane setup, its resolution and clarity will completely fulfil the capability of the flattest-shooting hunting cartridge. The ATACR 4-16 x 50 features the same multi-coated ED glass that was utilised in the original Nightforce ATACR 5-25 x 56, resulting in bright visuals, exceptional colour contrast, and outstanding low-light performance.
This high-performance version also features an integrated Power Throw Lever, low-profile ZeroStop elevation technology, DigIllum digital reticle illumination, faster diopter adjustment, and highly visible magnification markings. To prevent unintentional alterations in the field, there’s a capped windage adjustment.
Nightforce B.E.A.S.T. 5-25×56 F1: Best Night Vision & Variable Scope
If you frequently go night hunting or find yourself shooting in low-light situations, you might consider investing in a night vision scope. This type of scope includes an infrared illuminator, allowing you to see in low-light conditions. On the other hand, a variable scope allows you to modify the magnification level to fit the lighting conditions. But, how can you have both?
B.E.A.S.T. 5-25×56 F1 is the name of the game! This most advanced rifle scope on the market features the Best Example of Advanced Scope Technology. The i4FTM intelligent four-function elevation control lies at the heart of the B.E.A.S.T. The primary elevation knob’s initial adjustments are lightning fast, in.50 MOA/.2 Mil-Radian increments.
Additional elevation adjustments are available in.25 MOA/.1 Mil-Radian increment through an integrated fine adjustment lever. It’s the most rapid and precise elevation control ever devised for a riflescope. The Nightforce ZeroStop mechanism is standard, allowing a fast return to the shooter’s established zero point. A unique 360-degree brake control enables quick locking of height changes.
With the B.E.A.S.T. in his hands, the shooter selects the proper illumination level for the lighting conditions, ranging from very dim to extremely bright, and then turns off illumination to save battery power. When the illumination is turned back on, it defaults to the setting selected by the shooter. This ensures that the user’s night vision is not impaired, allowing for a quick shot. DigIllum also has a low-battery indicator and an auto-off function.
Nightforce ATACR 7-35×56 F1: Best Long Range Scope
A long-range scope is any scope with a magnification of more than 10X. The ATACR 7-35 x 56 F1 pushes the boundaries of even the most capable long-range cartridges with its vast magnification range and famed ATACR optical performance via an ED glass packaging.
Precision is achievable from short-range distances to as far as any modern extreme long-range rifle and cartridge can achieve, with parallax adjustment down to 10 metres and 100 MOA of elevation motion. This riflescope has an excellent field of view across the full magnification range, making it simple to locate, identify, and engage targets. Whether it’s for Precision Rifle Series -PRS competition or extreme long-range shooting, it delivers unrivalled precision and repeatability.
