Nightforce NX8™
2.5-20 x 50mm
with Mil-XT Reticle

Manufacturer's Description

Our newest family, NX8™ riflescopes have evolved from our classic NXS™ series – scopes proven over two decades in the hands of the U.S. Military, hunters and competitive shooters under the most demanding conditions on Earth. NX8™ riflescopes build upon this hard-earned reputation with new technology and a remarkable 8x zoom range, razor-sharp at every setting, a challenge that was vexed optical designers for years. Consider that problem solved.

There's a very good reason why most variable-power riflescopes have relatively modest magnification ranges, usually no more than a multiple of five or six (for example, a 3-12x is a multiple of four). While it has certainly been possible to build a riflescope with a multiple of eight, building one that delivers exceptional clarity, resolution and brightness at every setting, across the entire magnification range, has been a major obstacle for optical engineers. Until now. Our new NX8™ 2.5-20x50 F1 gives you one riflescope that will rule virtually any shooting environment, anywhere on Earth, at almost any distance. It includes advanced DigIllum reticle illumination. Nightforce ZeroStop technology. Your choice of MOA or Mil-Radian adjustments. And the power of eight comes in a sleek, streamlined package a mere 12 inches in length. It just might be the only riflescope you will ever need.

MIL-XT Reticle

Designed to meet the needs of today’s precision rifle competitor, the MIL-XT™ reticle allows for fast and accurate shots on target.

The MIL-XT™ has a simple center dot for a fine aiming point at center, while the main lines feature .2 Mil-Radian holds. Each whole Mil-Radian is numbered for fast reference under even stressful conditions.

Below center, whole Mil-Radian intersections feature a floating dot. Dots are placed at .2 Mil-Radian increments, while whole Mil-Radians are increased in size for fast counting. Additional marks are placed at half Mil-Radian increments as well. Numbers below center alternate in size for easy counting and verification of appropriate hold points.

This reticle was designed for the competitive and field shooter, and is certain to give a competitive edge to anyone who uses it.
