My Verdict- Nightforce Optics 5-20×56 SHV Riflescope

The Nightforce Optics 5-20×56 SHV Riflescope is a great rifle scope for both predator and varmint hunting. This scope has a ZeroSet that is standard, allowing a rapid return to your chosen zero even after multiple elevation adjustments. Whether you are varmint or a big game hunter the NightForce SHV 5-20x56mm can be of great help to you when you are hunting. The scope is made from high quality material to ensure reliability and durability. This rifle scope is available in illuminated and non-illuminated reticle models. The illuminated versions feature center-only reticle illumination, which helps prevent low-light flare common to some “smart” reticles. However, this scope is the non-illuminated model. If you are looking for a rifle scope that has an illuminated reticle, then this scope is not for you.
