Nightforce Optics unveils first scope in new family

Nightforce Optics has a completely new category of optics added to its line of finely crafted and durable riflescopes — the state-of-the-art NX8. Built upon the legendary NXS family of riflescopes and applying the latest technology and scientific advancements in optics, Nightforce has designed the new NX8.

The first riflescope unveiled in the NX8 family is the new NX8 1-8x24 F1 optic. Specifically designed for short- to medium-range shooting, the compact NX8 1-8x24 F1 riflescope delivers trusted Nightforce performance to virtually any rifle platform, and boasts true 1X capability.

"Constructing such a small riflescope to surpass the performance of most larger scopes entails a solid commitment to innovation and optical technology," said Nightforce director of sales and marketing Gordon Myers.

As targets increase in distance, the intelligent FC-MIL or FC-MOA first focal plane reticle options provide precise hold points. For those preferring to dial for long shots, the turrets feature Nightforce ZeroStop elevation-adjustable technology with windage limiter, allowing for a rapid return to absolute zero regardless of any previous elevation adjustments. Adjustments are a true .2 milliradian or .50 MOA. And, to aid in fast magnification adjustments, the Power Throw Lever (PTL) is included.

The compact and lightweight Nightforce NX8 1-8x24 F1 will be on display at the 2018 SHOT Show. For more information, visit
