The US military required a rifle scope that was exceptionally fast and applicable to a wide range of targets at various distances. Nightforce F1 3.5-15x50 came as valuable utility for them. It has a front focal plane reticle and the shooter has a distinct advantage in high stress conditions where speed is very important but distances change. A first focal plane reticle remain the same visual proportion to the target across the scope’s entire magnification range which makes it especially appropriate for range finding and trajectory compensation at all magnification with no extra calculations. This reticle position combined with intuitive adjustments makes this incredibly reliable scope utterly deadly. The US Special Forces soldiers and snipers who use them every day can say this with confidence and they are the real testers of the scope. Identical to the NXS series, the reticle in the first focal plane. These riflescopes have reticles that grow larger as magnification increases, and smaller as it decreases. This means the reticles’ sub tension remains constant at any magnification. |
Nightforce zero stop technology allows an absolute return to your chosen zero point, regardless of how much you have adjusted elevation settings. Zero stop turrets are normal standard on this riflescope and also add speed and efficiency for the user. Every Nightforce scope is tested to bear the challenges of mud, dirt, sand, heat and cold because these are the natural environmental challenges that the hunters and the military have to face as a continuous challenge. Turret adjustments are made with hardened silicon bronze to ensure a lifetime of wear resistance and reliable performance. Nightforce tubes are made from solid bar, aircraft grade aluminium alloy, not extruded. These are twice thicker than other riflescopes. This is for less overall stress, greater thermal stability, a consistent zero and a virtually impervious shield for the precision optics remaining within.Nightforce zero stop adjustments are standard on the NXS F1 and in addition a set of Nightforce Ultralight Rings are also included chosen from .1MRAD or,.250 MOA turrets. Other reticle offerings are NP RF1, MLR2, MD2, LV5, H58 etc. If it can be fitted to a PVS22 or, PVS40 night site to this day scope, the vision is simply unstoppable. The research, development and testing in Nightforce continues to develop new standards in manufacturing and quality control. These scopes are well inspected, tested and certified, passing through vigorous testing prior to shipping. The commitment to performance using cutting edge technology and advanced mechanical designs focussed on the features and the shooters simply relish the idea and concept. And in the riflescope arena, Nightforce is a name to reckon with. All Nightforce scopes are tested strenuously for waterproofing efficiency under water for at 100ft for 24 hrs at the factory for integrity. For thermal stability testing by freezing at-80F and then heating to 200F in one hour with complete function checks at both extremes. There are recoil and impact tests too conducted at 1250Gs (Positive & negative) with tracking accuracy and resolution integrity maintained before and after. There are almost 70-130 tests and checks conducted on the riflescopes before being handed over to the clients.
