About Nightforce Optics 12-42x56 Rifle Scope

• Since 1992, Nightforce riflescopes have won more records in long-range benchrest competition -- including several world records in .50 B.M.G. 1000 yard benchrest -- than any other scope on the market. Both Precision Benchrest models include an externally adjustable illuminated reticle, true .125 M.O.A. click values and a broad range of internal adjustment.
• These are not "dual-purpose" or hunting scopes with a different name. Each was designed and built from the ground up to answer the specific demands of the long-range benchrest shooter.
• Each of our Precision Benchrest models feature 56mm multi-coated lenses, providing the superior resolution necessary to distinguish fine detail at extremely long ranges. An adjustable objective allows extra-fine focus to adjust parallax from 25 yards to infinity.
• Target turrets are calibrated in true .125 M.O.A. (1/8 click) values and can be re-indexed to zero after sighting in.
• Both Precision Benchrest riflescopes are equipped with a coil spring plunger return system to maximize tracking accuracy. The eyepiece provides fast reticle focusing, and a glass-etched illuminated reticle provides optimum image/reticle contrast under virtually any lighting conditions.
• You have two choices of magnification ranges. But only one choice in the ultimate benchrest riflescopes.

Questions about this item:

Ryan H  whats the diffence between teh benchrest model on the ones that are not?
JOHN N  The benchrest model have covered turrents. The NXS have open Turrents. I own both and they are both excellent. If you hunt go with the NXS but if your are Target shooting get the Benchrest. I suggest this product including the 1/8 clicks it is more precise. One way or another after having a nightforce you can't go back. Top notch scopes. Benchrest has front focus and NXS has side focus which is nice. Glass in both are equal. Tracking is equal. I hope this helps. I like the 2moa reticle or the 2dd reticle.
Shopper  Is this scope a ch3 reticule?
Scott B  No, this unit is the NP-R2 Reticle. Please see the manufacturers Reticle page at: Thank you,
