Regular price $2,521.00

The same performance you have come to expect from Nightforce, now in a more affordable package. The SHV series riflescopes are a perfect choice for a wide range of applications from precision long range target shooting to big game and varmint hunting.  

SHV 5-20x56 - ZeroSet -.250MOA - Non illuminated - MOAR

The most powerful of our SHV series performs beautifully at both close and extended ranges on varmints, big game, and for making tight groups on paper. You get outstanding clarity, crispness and color contrast at every magnification setting. It features a full 80 MOA of elevation adjustment, side parallax adjustment and ZeroSet technology which allows a quick return to your initial zero setting, regardless of how many elevation adjustments you've made. It's tough, reliable and big calibers won't bother it. The SHV 5-20x56 won't bother your finances too much, either. 

Why SHV?

  • Objective optimized for low-light performance and resolution
  • European style fast focus eye piece for quick and easy diopter adjustment
  • Simple IHR or an intelligent MOAR reticle
  • Machined 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminum body tubes
  • Greater strength and superior resistance to point of impact shifts
  • All metal dials found under weatherproof caps

Quality and Precision Nightforce riflescopes will never be 'cheap'. The quality of materials, the precise tolerances, the skilled workmanship, and the need to withstand a lifetime of recoil make it physically impossible to build a world-class riflescope that is 'cheap'.

Worthy to Wear the Name One of the most difficult challenges we've ever faced was building a riflescope that is worthy of the Nightforce name in every regard yet within the reach of a wider range of hunters and shooters who don't need the 'overbuilt' characteristics of our NXS series, most of which were originally created to withstand actual combat conditions.

Mission Accomplished It wasn't easy. But we did it. By limiting some options, offering simpler controls, and using a less complex manufacturing process not by reducing the quality of its components. Experience the same premium quality and absolute precision only a Nightforce riflescope can deliver, now in a simpler, more economical package.

About Nightforce

Nightforce was born in 1992 with the vision that everything we build will meet this promise. For nearly three decades, we have designed and built optics and mounting systems that have been tested in the harshest conditions on earth.
Whether you are preparing for a deployment, your next shift, a world championship, or the hunt of a lifetime, thank you for putting your trust in the optical performance, consistent tracking, and durability of your Nightforce. If you are purchasing your first Nightforce, we are excited for you to experience why we are the choice of USSOCOM, numerous other special operations units worldwide, world champion competitive shooters, and the world's most discerning hunters.

Never Compromising Quality

There is no such thing as mass production at Nightforce. Only a skilled human eye and experienced hands are discerning enough to perform many of the critical operations involved in assembling a precision optical instrument.
Before they leave the factory, Nightforce riflescopes are subjected to conditions far beyond most anything you will ever encounter in the field. During our impact tests, riflescopes must endure repeated impacts of over 1200 Gs of force on multiple axes. After each severe impact, the riflescope is hand-checked for tracking accuracy and overall integrity. We rigorously test and inspect to ensure your Nightforce will work when you need it most.
