Every hunting optics brand has a foundation story that usually depicts a scene with then-optics failing to meet the needs of a hunter. Nightforce is no exception, but optical devices weren’t the brand’s primary focus. The company’s founder, Ray Dennis, lived in Australia where spotlighting was the most popular hunting method due to the peculiarities of local fauna. Spotlights drove Dennis to try his hand at creating hunting optics. After a successful launch on the Australian market, the Lightforce company was founded with the intention to venture into the U.S. Spotlights received a cold welcome, but the scopes were warmly accepted. It was then decided to shift focus to optics. Due to trademark issues, the company was forced to change its name to Nightforce in the early 90s. It reclaimed the right to use the Lightforce brand name after a while, but sporting optics remained in the domain of Nightforce. Today, the company produces riflescopes and optic accessories fit for both military and hunting applications. The brand introduced several product lines that formed its reputation as a manufacturer of standard-setting high-end sporting optics.
Our Nightforce scope selection comprises the company’s most notable lines of hunting riflescopes. The Nightforce NXS series was the brand’s standard bearer line of scopes suitable for the military and hunters alike. The series served as a foundation for another line of hunting scopes, Nightforce NX8. Though both series are meant for gun-handling experts, the Nightforce ATACR scopes bear the title of the line of truly professional hunting optics. The Nightforce SHV scopes are known for their versatility across a wide range of shooting disciplines. All products are stress tested against the impact no hunter would encounter in the field to make sure they will serve you long and well.
Nightforce Scope Mounts & Rings
It’s only natural for an optics-producing company to manufacture mounting equipment to ensure ultimate compatibility. Nightforce scope rings are a perfect choice for both brand’s own scopes and the optics of other manufacturers. If you prefer mounts over rings, we have a modest Nightforce unimount collection as well.
Gritr Outdoors has many Nightforce scopes for sale. The brand’s riflescopes are not known for their affordability, but they are worth every penny you spend on them.
