Nightforce NX8 2.5-20x50 Mil-XT Illuminated Reticle - Dark Earth (C665)

The NX8 in a widely popular magnification range and an illuminated milRAD reticle with FFP and now Tannodized Dark Earth

The NX8 2.5-20x50 F1 riflescope is the next generation in scopes from Nightforce. Building upon the legendary durability of the NXS family from Nightforce, the NX8 adds first focal plane performance with a 8x zoom range in a small package. This wide zoom range allows for fast engagements at close range along with the ability to detect, identify, and engage targets at long range.

The Nightforce NX8 in 2.5-20x puts the shooter in sweet spot of magnification. There is a lot of territory that a 2.5-20x scope can cover, and with a slightly smaller footprint than the mega-magnification scopes. With a 50mm objective, this gives the shooter the flexibility to bring the mount height down below 1.45" if that is desired, even with a 20 MOA base.

Other features include the ZeroStop elevation adjustment for a rapid return to zero. The 50mm objective is optimized for resolution and light transmission, with a parallax adjustment coming as close as 11 yards. The integrated PTL (Power Throw Lever) makes power changes fast and easy. The performance available in such a compact size makes the NX8 2.5-20x50 F1 a perfect choice for your favorite semi-auto precision rifle or compact bolt-action rifle.
