QUESTION: What is the benefit of the first focal plane (FFP) feature in the NX8 4-32x50 F1 Riflescope?

ANSWER: The first focal plane feature allows the reticle to grow and shrink with the target as you zoom in and out. This means the reticle's holdovers for windage and elevation remain accurate at all magnifications, which is crucial for long-range shooting.  In today's shooting world, Second Focal Plane is thought of as an entry-level scope, or a scope purely for bench rest shooters or hunters.  First Focal Plane has become table-stakes for precision rifle match shooting.  FFP also allows the shooter to do some basic range finding without the aid of electronic instruments.

QUESTION: How does the ZeroStop feature work?

ANSWER: The ZeroStop feature allows for a quick return to zero in the elevation adjustment. After dialing up for a long-range shot, you can instantly return to your zeroed range without counting clicks.  Nightforce has been a leader in the industry and early adopter of easy to zero and easy to maintain zero with advanced zero locking turret design.

QUESTION: What is the Tremor3 reticle?

ANSWER: The Tremor3 reticle is an advanced reticle design that incorporates features like wind dots and rapid ranging marks to enhance speed and accuracy in shooting.

QUESTION: What is the purpose of the Power Throw Lever (PTL)?

ANSWER: The Power Throw Lever (PTL) allows for quick magnification changes. This is especially useful in situations where the shooter needs to transition between close and long-range targets quickly.

QUESTION: How does the NX8 4-32x50 F1 compare to other Nightforce scopes?

ANSWER: This scope offers a wider zoom range and a first focal plane, making it more versatile for both close and long-range shooting. It maintains the legendary durability of Nightforce scopes but in a more compact and lightweight package.  The NX8 is built to the same tough standards as the NXS, but does not have the same extreme performance of lens coatings that the ATACR does.  The NX8 is generally a crowd pleaser for most competitive shooters.  The price range is kept affordable, but still not inexpensive.  The ATACR is a world class scope and one level up from the NX8, but also has a heavier platform and lacks the full 8x magnification zoom range.

Comparison with Other Similar Products

  • Vortex Razor HD Gen II 4.5-27x56: The Vortex Razor offers similar magnification range and also features a first focal plane reticle. However, it is larger and heavier than the NX8. The Razor is also known for its excellent glass quality, but it comes at a higher price point.
  • Leupold Mark 5HD 5-25x56: The Leupold Mark 5HD offers a slightly lower magnification range but is known for its excellent clarity and brightness as well as durability. It is also lighter than the NX8 but does not feature the ZeroStop elevation adjustment.  It has been said that both Leupold and Nightforce do not make a bad scope, which is probably true.  The Mark 5HD is probably the best side by side comparison to the NX8 4-32.  Both are US scope makers with Japanese parts, and have a wide choice of reticles.  When looking at the illuminated Tremor3, the NX8 comes in a little lower in price than the Mark 5HD. The choice will likely come down to the need for higher magnification or the desire to have more travel range in the turret, as the Mark 5HD has a large 35mm tube, and whether you will need illumination.
  • Trijicon AccuPoint 5-20x50: The Trijicon AccuPoint offers a lower magnification range and does not have a first focal plane reticle. It is, however, known for its excellent low-light performance.  The AccuPoint is priced significantly less than the NX8, but offers a much more basic choice in reticles, and is typically seen as a hunting scope, while the NX8 is more of a precision and competitive shooting scope.
