    Posted: April/23/2014 at 10:47

I am wondering if anyone who own the following Nightforce scopes can tell me the minimum parallax setting at their respective maximum magnification ? The official web site of Nightforce seems to be down so I am unable to ask them directly. 

  • SHV 4-14x56 .250 MOA 30mm
  • 3.5-15x50 NXS Tactical Riflescope w/ Illuminated Reticle  
  • NXS 3.5-15x50mm ZeroStop Rifle Scope w/ Velocity 1000 Reticle 

Thanks.

That information does indeed seem to be a challenge to find.  I looked through my owner's manual and it isn't in there, nor is it in their published scope specs - that I have yet found.


Assume 50 yards, but that is just an assumption.


They make a 4-14?

The 3.5-15x50 NXSs both go down to 50 yds. And the  SHV 4-14x56 goes down to 25yds.

That's one reason I don't have my ATACR anymore. It wouldn't even focus @ 100y without straining my eyes. Typical of NF their optics are geared toward long distance and they are optimized for that.  You want close focus go with March or S&B

I have no issues with eye strain with mine at even less than 100yds.
