Nightforce NX8 2.5-20x50 F1 Riflescope, MOAR reticle


Versatility Meets Precision: A Scope for the Modern Shooter

The Nightforce NX8 2.5-20x50 F1 riflescope is a well-rounded optic designed to cater to a broad spectrum of shooting needs. Originating from Nightforce's reputable NXS line, this scope is engineered for both tactical and recreational shooters. It offers a balanced set of features that not only enhance its functionality but also solve some of the most common problems shooters face with optics today.

The NX8 is equipped with a first focal plane design, which means the reticle size remains consistent across all levels of magnification. This feature is beneficial for shooters who require precise shot placement at varying distances. The 8x zoom range is another standout feature, offering the flexibility to engage targets up close or at extended ranges. The ZeroStop elevation adjustment allows for a quick return to your zero setting, eliminating the guesswork often associated with turret adjustments. Additionally, the integrated Power Throw Lever (PTL) simplifies the process of changing magnification levels, making it quicker and more intuitive.

Key Features and Highlights

  • First Focal Plane: Consistent reticle size for accurate shooting at all distances.
  • 8x Zoom Range: Versatility for both close and long-range engagements.
  • ZeroStop Elevation: Quick and reliable return to zero.
  • Integrated PTL: Easy and fast magnification changes.

Let's face it; the optics market is flooded with scopes that excel in either close-range or long-range shooting but rarely both. This limitation often forces shooters to compromise on their needs or invest in multiple scopes, which is neither practical nor cost-effective.

Imagine you're out in the field, and you spot a target at a considerable distance. You try to dial in your scope, but the reticle is too large or too small because it's not a first focal plane design. Now, you're not just dealing with distance; you're also wrestling with an inconsistent reticle size. Or picture this: you're in a dynamic shooting scenario where targets appear at varying distances. Your scope's limited zoom range forces you to either miss opportunities or take risky shots. These are not just inconveniences; they're problems that can affect your performance and safety.

Enter the Nightforce NX8 2.5-20x50 F1. This riflescope addresses these issues head-on. Its first focal plane design ensures that the reticle size remains consistent, allowing for more accurate shots at varying distances. The 8x zoom range provides the adaptability you need for different shooting scenarios. The ZeroStop elevation adjustment offers quick zeroing, making it easier to adapt to changing conditions. The integrated PTL allows for quick magnification changes, giving you the flexibility you need in dynamic shooting scenarios.

The Nightforce NX8 2.5-20x50 F1 riflescope offers a balanced set of features that cater to the modern shooter's needs. It solves the problem of limited versatility found in many scopes on the market today, offering a reliable, high-quality solution for those looking to invest in a single, well-rounded optic.

Summary of the MOAR F1 reticle:

The Nightforce MOAR™ reticle is a major advancement in precision shooting. A floating center crosshair two MOA wide and two MOA tall provides a precise aiming point— especially on smaller targets at longer ranges. One-MOA elevation and windage spacings provide for more accurate rangefinding and hold-offs compared to ordinary reticles with coarser markings.

The MOAR™ F1 reticle features 1 MOA elevation and windage markings for accurate range finding and hold-offs.  A floating center crosshair and bold 3, 6 and 9 o’clock posts make this reticle fast and easy to use in the field.  This MOAR™ F1 reticle features over 80 MOA of elevation below center and total windage of 40 MOA on most models and 80 MOA on NX8 models.
