Nightforce SHV 5-20 x 56 Illuminated Riflescope


While the quality of many lesser variable-power riflescopes deteriorates dramatically at high magnifications, the Nightforce SHV 5-20×56 provides superb clarity, crispness and colour contrast throughout its entire range, from minimum to maximum. ZeroSet™ is standard, allowing a rapid return to your chosen zero even after multiple elevation adjustments.

The Nightforce SHV 5-20×56 has either an IHR or MOAR™ reticle which has 1-MOA elevation and windage markings, allowing accurate rangefinding at long distances and a floating center crosshair that doesn’t cover up small targets. 100-MOA total elevation travel and 70-MOA windage allows you to accurately dial in long-range shots. Elevation and windage are finger adjustable. Fully enclosed, capped, waterproof adjustments ensure your scope stays zeroed.

Adjustments are precise on the Nightforce SHV 5-20×56 with 1/4-MOA click values. Once you have established your zero, it’s easy to reset the indicator to zero. 5X to 20X variable magnification for use in a wide range of field environments. Zoom ring is easily adjusted with one hand. 56mm objective lens allows superior light transmission.

Parallax settings on the Nightforce SHV 5-20×56 are marked in yards, and while field conditions can cause variations in exact yardage, the SHV’s marking gets you closer to the crispest, clearest image possible more quickly. Side parallax control is adjustable from 25 yds. to infinity without moving from shooter-ready position.
