Just bought this scope. The center part of the crosshair is all thats suppose to light up. But there is a red glow around the outer edge of the glass making a terrible glare. Suggestions? The guy I bought it from says its suppose to be like that..

10 settings. 5 through 10 look similar to the pic above. All settings have a glow around the outer edge of the glass

I've played around with and owned quite a few scopes with illuminated reticles including vortex, S&B, and a few NF scopes owned by friends and the illuminated reticle never looked like that, even on the highest setting.

I have heard the nxs and atacr lines have better illum, but I didn't know the shv was like that

Have you adjusted the eyepiece? I got a new scope yesterday and the illum was fuzzy until I adjusted the eyepiece

Everything is adjusted as it should be. I have 2 PST scopes, Schmidt Bender, and 2 cheaper junk illuminated scopes and never seen such an issue. This thing was going on a Tikka 22-250 varmint rig but is usless for night hunting like it is.

Dang I wonder if is a consistent problem or an issue in that scope. I like that Moar reticle and could see how useful it could be at night

Only the very center part of the reticle is suppose to illuminate with the shv moar. I specifically asked the seller before I bought it if the center was all tha illuminated. I was told yes.

AGREE call NF they will make it right


buying used has its drawbacks but NF will take care

I have the 5-20X56, non Illum, MOAR ret. I'm not sure I see the need for Illuminated ret on a hunting rifle. Yes on a CQB rifle.


Good Luck, keep us posted

The illuminated H2CMR reticle in my S&B 5-25 is extremely handy when shooting piggies in dusky low light situations. Definitely not necessary on a hunting rifle in most situations but I like the feature.

I love the illuminated Moar reticle. I do think it comes in handy if the illum reticle , they got it right

Well apparently I got a crappy one. Dissapointed someone would sell something like that claiming its like it's suppose to be.
