This Nightforce Competition 15-55x52 riflescope with a FCR-1 reticle features Zerostop and a parallax adjustment of 25 meters to infinity.

Inspired by the NXS, Nightforce's Competition 15-55x52mm Riflescope defines rugged, reliable, and repeatable. Like all of Nightforce’s Riflescopes, the Competition offers extreme durability. It utilizes a one-piece tube precision machined from a solid bar stock of 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum alloy. The tube is two to three times thicker than riflescopes of a lesser quality, resulting in less overall stress, greater thermal stability, a consistent zero and a virtually impervious shield for the precision optics within. The sheer durability of the Competition 15-55x52mm is perfectly matched by its flawless optical quality. The objective lens assembly employs the same multi-element design used on high quality telescopes. This results in precisely focused light rays for exceptional image clarity and color accuracy. The lenses are matched and aligned by hand in a process called optical indexing to ensure the highest possible optical performance, which is enhanced even further thanks to multi-coated ED glass.

Other features of the Competition 15-55x52mm Riflescope include the Hi-Speed windage and elevation turrets. This design promotes faster adjustments, and both the windage and elevation turret are calibrated to precise .125 MOA increments. The turrets also feature Nightforce’s ZeroStop Technology to provide an instant return to zero after making adjustments in the field. After sighting in your rifle, simply set the ZeroStop to create a positive mechanical stopping point at your chosen zero point. Then, no matter how many elevation adjustments you make, turning the elevation knob down to the ZeroStop setting returns you to your original zero, completely by feel—even in total darkness or while wearing gloves. The internal mechanisms on the windage and elevation turrets are held in place by a specially designed spring that spends two weeks in a polishing tumbler before being installed in the optic to deliver perfectly smooth operation. This guarantees zero loss of integrity, zero loss of repeatability.

I'm a F-Class shooter and I like this scope for that competition. The 1/8 minute adjustments are useful at 600-1000 yds. The clarity is great. I shoot at 40X as that's where the crosshair divisions are on minutes of angle. The scope is light enough to be able to have extra weight in the barrel. For me, this is the best scope I've ever used for competition shooting.

I have six Nightforce scopes. Including a competition 15-55 FCR-1. They are all outstanding scopes. I bought a used 12-42 benchrest on line. I called Nightforce and asked if this used scope would be in warranty. I was told that it came with the same lifetime warranty as buying new. When I got the scope, the illumination did not work and it didn't have the right box and no paper work. I sent it to Nightforce and they fixed the scope and sent it back to me with the proper box, all of the paperwork that a new scope comes with and a Nightforce cap. You can't go wrong with any Nightforce product. I bought the other five scopes from Eurooptic. NIGHTFORCE AND EUROOPTIC ROCK!!!!!!!! I am about to order another Competition 15-55 FCR-1.

Replaced another brand I had been hunting with when I couldn't get it to focus over 600 yards. I'm starting down the F class rabbit hole and chose the nightforce 15-55x52. It's amazingly clear and accurate.

A great deal on a competiton rifle scope for F Class shooting. The NightForce quality you are accustomed to in a lighter weight than an ACTAR, with higher zoom and 1/8 MOA adjustment for fine tuning. Scope was shipped and received in excellent condition quickly after ordering.

This Nightforce Competition 15-55x52 FCR-1 Riflescope C514 Demo is my 6th Nightforce rifle scope plus two PULSAR products purchased from EUROOPTIC. I don't believe I will purchase from anyone else. I order one day the scope arrives the next day. I have never been dissatisfied with any purchase from EUROOPTIC, packaging looks as though it is still sealed from the factory! Thanks EUROOPTIC!!!

Forty-five years shooting. First ten Nikon and Weaver. After that Leupold all the way up to a Mk5 56MM benchrest model. Moving out past 600 and 1000 distances my eyes needed an advantage. This scope is the absolute best. Clearest image quality, repeatable zero, and can be easily calibrated to to work with your ballistic programs. Neat trick is to find your wind call (mild steady wind) and adjust your magnification to put "zero" hold on whatever MOA you need. Say you need two and a half MOA. Just adjust your magnification slightly up or down to put your 2.5 on say the two or three MOA hair. Then you are shooting on a crosshair and not in the middle of the hairs. Just don't forget to settle your windage back to zero as neeeded. If the calls change, back off or increase magnification to find a comfortable zero. I prefer to keep the magnification at 40X, as this is a good spot to work from. Out at 1000 I use 42-45 to wind call. On bench at 200-300 I use 35-40. BTW the 40 is calibrated to represent actual MOA on target. I have nothing negative in any way to share. I bought two. One on a Defiance DEV 6.5 CM, the other on a Tenacity 6GT. Completely happy.

Amazing eye relief and clairty indoors and outdoors at 100yds. Comparing to a 10-50x60 scope that cost half as much, I'm sad to say there is no comparison. The competing scope is fuzzy/hazy where this NF is crystal clear. My only quible is the cross hairs are the thinnest of any FCH I have ever seen. This is my 3rd NF scope and I am afraid there will be more. Sorry about your wallet.

I had been wanting to try the NF competition as both the wife and I shoot f class competition.The price drop for demo model sealed the deal. We replaced a Vortex GE and a Sightron S111 12-55.

I purchased this from euro optics for my latest F-open rifle I built off a fully tried and squared Winchester model 70 CRPF WSM action and a 31" Brux straight blank chambered in 7mm SAUM. Eye relief, sight picture, and clarity are surprisingly excellent at 55 power. I'm impressed enough to make my next purchase a NF and as always happy with Euro Optics prices and customer service that when it comes to optics it's the only place I will buy from.

I have used this scope on my KELBLY Rifle in 308 win at distances from 300 Meters to 1000 Meters . This Scope has Numerous Advantages of which It Being the Lightest and the Incremental Correct Movement of Clicks are the prominent ones . In Low Light I was Disappointed with its clarity Compared to Its Arch Rivals March 10-60x56 HM .. Schmidt 12-50x56 Surpasses it but then due to its low eye relief and extreme Weight does not getter than NF 15-55x52 Zero Stop !
