The Nightforce Competition™ now includes ZeroStop™ and Hi-Speed™ adjustments as standard equipment.

The Nightforce Competition 15-55x52 has now been upgraded so elevation and windage turrets give 10 MOA per revolution as opposed to the previous model which will only give 5 MOA per revolution. Which caused confusion especially when the shooter is needing to add more then 5 MOA of wind while he is shooting. In tough competitive situations it made it incredibly easy to loose track of how many MOA you have added on to your scope but now with this improvement of 10 MOA per rotation this problem has been solved.

Two fast, easy-to read windage caps are included with every Nightforce Competition riflescope, so you can tailor the Nightforce Competition™ to your style of shooting.

Nightforce Competition 15-55x52 contains ED glass, for superb color contrast correction and high resolution. A remarkable 92% light transmission, approaching the maximum ever achieved in any riflescope. Fast-focus European-style eyepiece. Just 27.8 ounces in weight—24% lighter than Nightforce 12-42 x 56 Benchrest, and over 20% lighter than our former 12-42 x 56 NXS™ riflescopes.

The list goes on. Side parallax adjustment from 25 yards to infinity. Hi-Speed™ windage and elevation adjustments of .125 MOA, positive and repeatable over a lifetime of use, now standard with ZeroStop.™ Total elevation travel is 55 MOA, total windage 50 MOA. Each rotation provides 10 MOA of adjustment.

The exceptional resolving power of the Nightforce Competition features ED glass, combined with Nightforce lens coatings and uncompromising construction techniques perfected over more than 20 years, means that all of the Nightforce Competition magnification range produces outstanding clarity…not just a portion of it, as is often the case in lesser optics. For the serious competitor, this is one serious riflescope.

Please note: Nightforce recommend the use of a 20-30 MOA tapered base to yield maximum performance from your Nightforce Competition™ riflescope.
