Nightforce Optics has enhanced their elevation adjustments in this year’s lineup of high-magnification Nightforce scopes. Now you can get DOUBLE the elevation travel with a SINGLE TURN of the elevation knob. This upgrade gives Nightforce scopes practical performance similar to much more expensive scopes fitted with a single-turn or double-turn elevation systems. For an NXS with 1/4-MOA clicks, this means you can get a full 20 MOA of elevation travel with a single turn of the knob and for metric versions 10 mils.
This simple enhancement can make a big difference in the field. With most “high-performance” calibers, 20 MOA will get you to 700 yards or beyond whereas a varminter can zero at all normal hunting yardages within the same revolution of the turret. Likewise, a tactical shooter, moving from near to far targets and back again, can stay on the same revolution at most target yardages.
What About Retro-fitting Older NF Scopes?
Nightforce plans to provide an upgrade path for existing Nightforce scopes “eventually, but not right away”. The upgrade would allow installation of the “high-speed adjustment” system on older NF scopes. We don’t have any more specifics.
