New Nightforce Competition™ SR Fixed 4.5 x 24 ready for service rifle competition
(ArmsVault.com) – 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 34mm, 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 shooter’s 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 8 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 $290. Nightforce Competition™ riflescopes are engineered specifically to help shooters not just compete, but to win at any level.
