Nightforce SHV 4-14x50mm F1 Riflescope with Mil-R reticle


The Nightforce SHV line is for "shooters hunters and varmiters" and is built upon the NXS body, glass and features, with some of the mil-spec battle durability removed to provide a very affordable, yet high quality scope.

At Charlie's, we are Nightforce fanboi's for sure.  We love great scopes.  What is really awesome about the SHV line is that you get all the great glass that comes in the NXS, but stripped away the battle readiness for the casual shooter and hunter, and the price point that the SHV comes in at is amazing.  Great Nightforce glass at a price that competes with Burris and Bushnell and Vortex.  How great is that?  It's great.  And, did we mention, First Focal Plane and Mil-R reticle.  Jump on this one!

This Nightforce SHV 4-14x50 is the first offering of first focal plane in the SHV line. It is built with the same quality and reliability that you have come to expect from Nightforce. This scope features a 4-14 magnification range, illuminated reticle, exposed elevation turret and capped windage turret to prevent accidental movement during travel or in the field. It also offers parallax adjustment from 25 yds to infinity and a MIL-R reticle.

This riflescope brings a first focal plane option to the SHV family. This feature gives the shooter the option of precisely holding for elevation and wind at any magnification setting by using the intelligence built into the reticle. This SHV is comes in the MIL-R reticle and standard with illumination.

This new SHV incorporates a feature set built for versatility, starting with a 4-14x magnification range that offers an excellent combination of field of view and resolving power at higher magnification. The 50mm objective offers excellent light transmission at any time of day. The overall length is 14.8 inches, and the optic weighs in at 30 ounces.

This SHV has a 30mm main tube, which allows for a maximum adjustment range of 90 minutes or 26 Mil-radians, and the adjustments are quarter-minute of angle or tenth mil-radian based upon reticle choice. Ten minutes of angle or 5 mil-radians of adjustment per revolution is standard.

Standard Features

The Nightforce ZeroSet feature is also standard and allows for a rapid return to zero in any condition from any distance. The exposed elevation adjustment allows quick access, and a capped windage prevents accidental adjustments during travel or in the field.

Parallax is adjustable from 25 yards to infinity, and it does so without any backlash or hesitation. Also, the external illumination dial has 12 brightness settings.

The power zoom ring allows for quick and precise magnification adjustments, and a clamp-on Power Throw Lever is available as an accessory. The fast focus eyepiece design is standard, as on every SHV model.

Whether you’re making adjustments on the fly for a quick shot on uncooperative game or venturing into the fast action found in the precision rifle sports, you can trust the SHV 4-14x50 F1 to deliver precision at speed.
