Nightforce BEAST 5-25x56mm
To invent radical new technologies that solve old problems inherent to competitor’s products. And to include capabilities and features that for years had been nothing but pipe dreams. Cut no corners, they were told. Not on materials, on quality, on workmanship, on durability. Conceive the ultimate riflescope, we asked them. Then build it.
Nightforce BEAST 5-25x56mm Features
First Focal Plane Precision
While locating a reticle in a riflescope’s second focal plane is most common, a first focal plane location has distinct advantages to the accomplished shooter. All reticle subtensions, whether in MOA or Mil-Radian configuration, remain in the same visual proportion to the target across the scope’s entire magnification range. This makes a first focal plane reticle particularly effective for target holdovers, windage leads and range estimation. It eliminates a number of variables, resulting in greater speed and ultimately in greater accuracy in high-stress environments.
A Combination of Technology and Performance Never Before Put Into A Riflescope
The U.S. military spoke. We listened. The playing field in warfare has changed. Our military snipers are engaging targets at ever-increasing ranges; extremely difficult targets demanding levels of positive identification, accuracy and optical performance that were impossible with existing technology. Recognizing this, the U.S. military threw out all the conventions associated with tactical day scopes, and requested a riflescope unlike any ever created.
Thus was born the B.E.A.S.T.
New Standards of Resolution and Clarity.
There are plenty of high-magnification variable power riflescopes on the market. But, magnification without extreme resolving power, razor-sharp clarity and superb contrast— even in dismal light—is of no value. Military snipers are now called upon to positively identify targets and distinguish threats at distances measured in hundreds of meters. The slightest nuance in appearance can, for example, separate a legitimate IED threat from an innocent non-combatant. The optical prescription and glass used in the B.E.A.S.T. was created through a collaboration between U.S. and German engineers, who were tasked with achieving resolution and clarity that surpassed that of any riflescope in the world. They succeeded.
Intelligent and Intuitive.
True-to-eye light transmission exceeds 90 percent, with resolution and image clarity at unprecedented levels. XtremeSpeed adjustments on a 34mm tube provide 60 MOA (20 Mil-Radians) of adjustment instantly in a single rotation (120 MOA total travel)—meeting, or exceeding, the effective range of any known cartridge at extreme distances.
The heart of the B.E.A.S.T. is its i4F intelligent four-function elevation control. Initial adjustments with the primary elevation knob are lightning fast, in .50 MOA/.2 Mil-Radian increments. An integral fine adjustment lever provides additional elevation adjustments in .25 MOA/.1 Mil-Radian increments. It is the fastest, most precise elevation control ever conceived on a riflescope. The patented Nightforce ZeroStop system, allowing an instant return to the shooter’s established zero point, is standard. A new 360-degree brake control allows instant securing of elevation adjustments.
The Highest Possible Light Transmission.
The professional sniper’s world is one of shadow and darkness. Enemies intent upon doing harm are not in the habit of operating in broad daylight. Thus, from day one, we knew that the B.E.A.S.T. had to outperform any other existing riflescope in poor light. And it does. The B.E.A.S.T. achieves 90%+ light transmission—approaching the maximum limit of what is physically possible. There is no such thing as 100% light transmission in a riflescope. Only a handful of riflescopes in the world have ever topped the 90% figure, and the human eye can distinguish differences of approximately 3%. At first or last light, the B.E.A.S.T. can make the difference between a precise shot—or no shot at all.
Applicable To Any Tactical Environment.
At just 15.37″ length, the B.E.A.S.T. is very compact relative to its power, allowing friendly attachment of thermal, night vision and other accessories. On today’s battlefield, our servicemen can find themselves in a firefight in a crowded, close-in urban environment, or engaging small targets at extreme distances…all in a single day. Our military requested one riflescope equally adept in every conceivable environment, and the B.E.A.S.T.’s 5-25x magnification range provides multi-scope capability in one sophisticated package.
