The popularity of Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) and NRA service rifle matches, combined with recent rule changes, have resulted in the new Competition SR Fixed 4.5 x 24 riflescope by Nightforce.
The Competition SR Fixed 4.5 x 24 is purpose-built to comply with 2016 rules that, for the first time, allow the use of riflescopes having a maximum magnification of 4.5x, objective lens diameter to 34 mm, and combined weight of optic and service rifle to 11.5 pounds.
The new Competition SR Fixed 4.5 x 24 is built on a 30mm tube. It provides 100 MOA of both elevation and windage adjustment, in precise .25 MOA increments. The exposed adjustments feature large, easy-to-read engraving, and 20 MOA per revolution. Parallax is fixed at 200 yards, providing a parallax-free image for all service rifle and high power distances. The compact riflescope measures 9.9 inches in length and weighs just 15.4 ounces. It includes patented Nightforce ZeroStop technology that allows an instant, positive return to the shooters chosen zero setting, regardless of how many elevation adjustments have been made.
The SR-1 reticle was created specifically to maximize the new riflescope's performance. This new, non-illuminated reticle has heavy posts at the 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions, and a 10 MOA center circle with eight MOA crosshair which will appear visually familiar to iron sight shooters. It is standard in the Competition SR Fixed 4.5 x 24. Nightforce has also introduced the new Unimount SR, a rugged, lightweight mounting solution designed specifically to complement the new riflescope and provide the preferred "nose to charging handle" positioning preferred by most service rifle shooters. The Unimount SR will fit any 30 mm riflescope, offering 20 MOA of taper while producing the performance of steel at half the weight.
The Competition SR Fixed 4.5 x 24 will retail at $1950 and the Unimount SR will retail at $260. Nightforce Competition riflescopes are engineered specifically to help shooters not just compete, but to win at any level.
