All Nightforce products are created to be Rugged. Reliable. Repeatable.™ These are strong words, but the product performance in real world applications prove them to be true. Nightforce riflescopes are used on six of seven continents in some of the most inhospitable environments on earth.
Nightforce didn’t start building scopes and expect people to find uses for them. Instead, they looked at real-world needs that were not being met by other optics manufacturers and created optimised products from the ground up. Nightforce has always designed the ultimate in precision instruments for its customers’ applications.
With more than 35 years’ experience in the field of precision manufacturing, Lightforce has forged an international reputation for the design and manufacture of innovative vehicle and handheld professional lighting equipment.
Built around the framework of ISO 9001:2015 (International Quality Standards), our manufacturing capability and capacity is agile to ensure we meet the most challenging and ever changing market demands. Our design ethos is simply that “quality is designed in, not inspected in”.
Maintaining the highest levels of quality, compliance and precision, the Lightforce Australia group of companies has achieved Quality Management System ISO 9001: 2015 (Design and Manufacturing).
