Less than a month into 2016 and Nightforce has already made a lot of noise in the optics department.

The company’s newest addition is the Nightforce Competition Fixed 42 x 44 riflescope.

The all new riflescope is purpose built for short range competitive shooting, where weight is an issue. By eliminating the inherent weight of a variable-power mechanism, the Competition 42 x 44 weighs just 20.7 ounces. Its ED glass provides exceptional resolving power and color contrast, bringing clarity to the smallest target at extreme ranges.

As with all Nightforce riflescopes, the Competition’s mechanics are extremely robust, impervious to recoil. 1/8 MOA (.125 inch) adjustments track true and without backlash. Side parallax adjustment focuses to under 10 meters, making it an excellent choice for rimfire and air gun competitions, as well as for large caliber and long-range applications.

Every advantage for the serious shooter has been included, such as high-visibility engraving, fast-focus eyepiece, sunshade, lens covers and a choice of proven Nightforce CTR-2 or CTR-3 reticles.

This new riflescope joins the Competition riflescope family, which includes the extremely successful Competition 15-55 x 52, the riflescope chosen by the U.S. F-Class Rifle Team for their campaign to the 2017 World Championships.

The Nightforce Competition Fixed 42 x 44 retails for $1,795.
